"Individuality and individualism are not the same. We are a society based on "individualism" not individuality. Individualism is a social construct, or a concept of self, imposed from the outside using social pressure, or force, to ensure conformity to a group norm. Whereas individuality is the unfolding of the authentic or true self, which is beyond concepts, from within the depths of one's soul. Instead of authoritative force or peer pressure, loving guidance and ample opportunities to develop and exercise one's free will, while maintaining and respecting the rights and needs of others, should be the rule of a free society."

a father to a son

i used to be more than
you, which didn't last long
i wish i was patient,
you grow and are growing
your thirst for knowledge
only you will quench
restless, inquisitive
sense will surpass dad's quest.
he answers what he knows
all else would be a lie
either some readiness
has diminished, or i'm
astonished by your glide
your giddu once said
grandkids come to mean more
than your own. you have
learnt from them then come
along your kid's kids
and by trial and error
you're prepared. it's true!
they are relentless. each
treat you so tend than us
granparents pass your tests
you'll sleep always knowing
their faith is yours and
they'll never give up.
i will never leave you
too i might confuse you,
i'm just acting my age
we both will progress, but
your pace is quicker.
when someone is more
they love and remain, like
dylan's words: "she promised
she'd be right there with
when i paint my
take it don't
leave it, it's sweeter than a
fiddle at the apollo.
