So there you are in your little bubble of self made pride . There you are saying to yourself ''yeah i made it''.
There you are with your friends speaking what my friend lebix calls ''expensive English'', everything is perfect isn't it?
Well think again and think harder. You have your childhood friends ,or maybe your old school friends who never made it at school.
There they are unaware of the many complicated things that are going on around our globe .
Somehow those people happen to be what we are, they remind us of where we come from .
Undeniably they gave you a friend when you needed one ,they laughed with you , they where there before you met your ''cool friends''
but funny how you out of all the people can mock them for their illiteracy
''oh my god he/she is so ghetto'' ''oh no his English suckz'' ''damn this barbarian'' ''what do they take me for
...i got standards you know'' ''oh he/she is so lame'' ''oh i hate it when I'm at home , these people are noisy''
Really now! How dare you say all that? Is that how life should be ? Is that how cool you think you are? If thatz the definition of being cool means then being cool suckz .
I thought people were getting civilised but only to find that they were getting dumber.
Remember when you used to play hide and seek with us? We were not barbarians.
Remember when you used to run to my place when you were in trouble ? We were not too ghetto .
Remember when you were new in the hood and i made you fit in ? I wasn't lame.
Guys it all goes down to this . You might have been lucky and progressed far at school ,
you may know English better than white people do, you may be wearing the best clothes in town ''swagga'' , you may be ''cool'' ,
you may be having a facebook acc but please lets remember and respect our childhood friends.
Message of the day : friendship is too precious to be lost over the roads that life makes us go through..
with your old ''illiterate '' friends rather involve them in what you are doing ,don't teach them things but do with them .
ITS THE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE DO TO OTHERS THAT MEANS THE WORLD TO THEM .
Call one of your old friends and say hi
