In response to prompt : Betrayed
It’s unbelievable how many times we are betrayed by our elected officials. During elections they know what our grievances are, they promise to fix things that bother us.
We are naïve enough to believe them. Before our elections they told us the hideous mail boxes would disappear and we’ll get our mails at home, like old times.
We were foolish to believe they’d actually do it, we voted in droves to vote for the party, they got elected and we are left twiddling our thumb in disbelief that they did not fulfill our wishes!
You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch__ each time you use your power, it costs you one day(as in you’ll live one day less). How would you use this power, if at all?
If I use this unbelievable power that I’m granted to predict the future, I will live one day less is the catch.
My question whose future am I supposed to predict. If it is the world, there is not much to predict, everything is pretty obvious, the Americans will elect a new president. Canadians are getting ready to perhaps elect a new prime minister, probably not from the same party.
India and Pakistan are not sure who deserves to have Kashmir added to their country. This controversy will continue for a very long time.
Bangladesh is not sure how long their PM will last.
The stock market will go up and down for ever.
The prices of food will continue to rise.
Global warming will continue to mess up our weather.These are not predictions these are some hardcore facts. I’ve only written what is true, so I shall not lose any day of my life,I hope. 🙂
