Recognition

By Olivia Tiffin, TIWP Student

I do not seek power over others or the crowd’s applause. I hope nothing of a fiery hunger for attention or the words of command. All I walk towards on the path is recognition, a recognition of how I see the world and how I see society crumble and be ripped apart by itself: politics, inequality, and most of all the feeding desire for power, the push for success, treating everything at the words of money. Tell me why is the world made up of a thousand colors, and yet one chooses itself above others. What is the meaning of debate if half of the vote is unhappy? How does consensus come into place? How does the use of pollution and greenhouse gasses help us? Is innovation our destruction? I do not seek our collapse or anything unfair. I simply seek a reader who will listen and take action.
