TROM Poems: Homelessness


Homelessness
By Seb One hundred million people
are homeless worldwide and there are over one hundred million
empty apartments worldwide. Why those homeless are not living in those
empty apartments is still beyond my mind? In today’s self-entrapped world
of the so smart mobile phone, it has become much easier to ignore
all those that don’t even have a home. How many homeless people have you
walked passed on the street? How many times have you tried to put yourself
in their shoes watching all those passing feet? Why are they begging
and nobody is helping? Why is there more food than ever before
but nothing for them to eat? With the amount of money the United States spends
every year on Christmas decorations alone they could easily eliminate their issue
of homelessness. It is really not that difficult to overcome
most of our problems today if we gather and work collectively and not get sucked into the predominantly reinforced
culture of hopelessness. Why does modern society make you
feel like you are all on your own? Why can’t we build a future where nobody
is categorized as a negative externality and thrown out into an artificially scarce
society where you’re all alone. As many as 1.6 billion people
lack adequate housing and people are still defending today’s
outdated market structure which is depressingly astounding. Governments are using metal spikes
to deal with the homeless, and unless we change the structural forces
that generate such backwards type thinking, there will be little to no improvement
to such coldness. In today’s society, we take better care of
those in jail than those on the street. Those behind bars are given beds, sheets,
clothes, food, water and much more, whilst the homeless struggle every day
just to get something to eat. Homelessness is not an accident
or a fixed social condition. It is the inevitable outcome of a very unequal
and obsolete market system based primarily on ruthless and predatory
human vs. human competition. It will take a completely new
socioeconomic mission where we instead use science and technology
to design an emergent system that makes sure everyone has access to clean water,
clean air, healthy nutrition, relevant education and of course proper accommodation. The key message in this poem is that suffering on the street of hunger, thirst, the cold, the heat, the loneliness,
and the degradation has nothing to do with a person’s
chromosomes. It has something to do with the social
structure they are living in that systemically denies them a home. To understand more about real
solutions to homelessness and most of our problems today please check out Tromsite, The Venus Project

    *Homelessness
    🏘

    100 million people are homeless worldwide
    and there are over 100 million empty apartments worldwide.
    Why those homeless are not living in those empty apartments is still beyond my mind?

    In today’s self-entrapped world of the so smart mobile phone,
    it has become much easier to ignore all those that don’t even have a home.

    How many homeless people have you walked passed on the street?
    How many times have you tried to put yourself in their shoes watching all those passing feet?
    Why are they begging and nobody is helping?
    Why is there more food than ever before but nothing for them to eat?
