Where Is The Love.



If you never know truth, then you never know love. Why does this world need to be so evil? What a corrupted globe we live on. Rabbis blinded by the money, twisted for the honour. No justice and no honesty. The rich just become richer, the poor just poorer. No sincerity, envelopes is the only language spoken. Those who give some nice tips, get good customer service. The bigger the nedove, the more chance you’ll win the case. Chance? Yeah, just hope the other party hasn’t out-tipped you. Din Torah – but then without the Torah. Din Beshure sounds more like it. Well, if it’s a beshure you won’t be able to prove them wrong, will you? Money and yichus is a (not so) secret weapon. It’s all in the name. If you’re not Halbershtam or Reichman, just bang the walls in despair. Whatever happened to the values of humanity, Whatever happened to the fairness and equality. Instead of spreading love, we're spreading animosity. Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity. That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling under, That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling down. It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feeling under, I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found.

Families totally bashed apart. When the father dies, the love goes with him. The family affection is 3 feet under, deeply buried. Lawyers are happy; the shiva is over - the fighting starts. Five wills start popping up, and the niftar changed his mind 15 times. Brothers stop speaking to each other, cousins banned from each others house. I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder, As I'm getting older y'all people get colder. Most of us only care about money makin, Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction.

On the other hand, if the Rebbes do mistakes, so could we. If the Leader will go to court, so will we. Rebbes fighting, putting us all in shame. Money, honour and some more honour. Korach vechol eidosoi. Calling police and going to court. Bribing gaboyim, paying picture magazines and closing a couple of yeshivas. War for a golden strokes bekitche - that’s why they lose the precious love. If this is what our leaders are, if those are our influential cream of the crop, what do you expect of us? With this world that we living in, People keep on giving in, Makin wrong decisions. Only visions of them livin and Not respecting each other, Deny thy brother. The wars' going on but the reasons' undercover, The truth is kept secret, Swept under the rug, If you never know truth, Then you never know love .

By those lovely litvakkes it isn’t any pinker. Roshei Yeshiva fighting over the frak. The houses in South Africa, the weekly shiur klali and the honour of sitting up front. Fists flying and police chasing; all while the rashbo is being kvetched. Drop the rashbo a minute and find the love. Find it, use it and cherish it. I’m amazed - and terribly shocked - by all the teenage boys still admiring those rabbis. Is it any wonder why their love is lost, too? People killing people dying, Children hurtin you hear them crying. Can you practice what you preach, Would you turn the other cheek? Father Father Father help us, Send some guidance from above, Cause people got me got me questioning, Where is the love?

I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is eventually found.

  • I agree about families fighting over yerusha. I've seen it up close and it makes me sick. I asked my mom and dad to write me out of their will. Leave me not a dime, not a dish. Just peace with my brothers and sister.

  • WOW you have out done yourself with this one, what a piece of writing*. But ying forget the rabbis and the Roshei Yeshiva and if we start looking inwards and not outwards we still end up with the same question of “where is the love” but at least on this one the answer lies with ourselves, so let’s go with........
    I'm starting with the man in the mirror
    I'm asking him to change his ways
    And no message could have been any clearer :
    If you wanna make the world a better place
    Take a look at yourself, and then make a change.
    (I am writing this to you but I mean myself)

    * and btw I just love the attitude Stacy oozes

  • Thank you Frummer, TRK and Ghetto. You three made my day :-)

    Tuesday - Sick isn't the word. You're a smart girl.

    Lost - here you go, some more BEP.


    It takes one, just one
    And then one follows the other one
    And then another follows the other one
    Next thing you know you got a billion
    People doing some wonderful things
    People doing some powerful things
    Let's change and do some powerful things
    Unity could be a wonderful thing

  • Yingel, nice post. Very true and very sad. But please do write a next post about the nice side of life. Look at the bright side - and the dark will fall away. Put on your pink sunglasses and get writing.

    Looking forward and waiting for a positive post about the lovely world we live in,
    a loyal reader

  • Do you mean WHERE IS THE LOVE - By BLACK EYED PEAS?
    What's wrong with the world mama?
    People living like aint got no mamas
    I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
    Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
    Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
    But we still got terrorists here livin
    In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz the Crips and the KKK
    But if you only have love for your own race
    Then you only leave space to discriminate
    And to discriminate only generates hate
    And if you hatin you're bound to get irate
    Yeah madness is what you demonstrate
    And that's exactly how anger works and operates
    You gotta have love just to set it straight
    Take control of your mind and meditate
    Let your soul gravitate to the love y'all

    People killing people dying
    Children hurtin you hear them crying
    Can you practice what you preach
    Would you turn the other cheek?
    Father Father Father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    Cause people got me got me questioning
    Where is the love? (where is the lovex3) (the love2x)

    It just ain't the same all ways have changed
    New days are strange is the world the insane?
    If love and peace so strong
    Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
    Nations dropping bombs
    Chemical gases filling lungs of little ones
    With ongoing suffering
    As the youth die young
    So ask yourself is the loving really strong?
    So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
    With this world that we living in
    People keep on giving in
    Makin wrong decisions
    Only visions of them livin and
    Not respecting each other
    Deny thy brother
    The wars' going on but the reasons' undercover
    The truth is kept secret
    Swept under the rug
    If you never know truth
    Then you never know love
    Where's the love y'all? (I don't know)
    Where's the truth y'all? (I don't know)
    Where's the love y'all?

    People killing people dying
    Children hurtin you hear them crying
    Can practice what you preach
    Would you turn the other cheek?
    Father father father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    Cause people got me got me questioning
    Where is the love? (where is the lovex3) (the lovex2)

    I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
    As I'm getting older y'all people get colder
    Most of us only care about money makin
    Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
    Wrong information always shown by the media
    Negative images is the main criteria
    Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria
    Kids wanna act like what the see in the cinema
    Whatever happened to the values of humanity
    Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
    Instead of spreading love, we're spreading anomosity
    Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
    That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling under
    That's the reason why sometimes I'm feeling down
    It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feeling under
    I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found

  • "i sure hope you get help soon. your lives wont just take care of themselves, go for therapy. "

    Hey Anon,
    why don't you give us the name of your shrink and the meds you're taking?
    Is it working?

  • yingele -
    full credit for not just hitting delete, the response i had expected. but not for feeling so threatened. i said not "you're evil and drop dead", and i didn't ignore your pain either. i did say "i see you hurting, something is wrong, please get help". love is important, but healing often takes a little more.

    lostspirit-
    helpful therepy allows for criticism, but i'm glad we are all keeping shabbes, being that it's well over by 11:57:44pm, no matter where you live. juicy stories? havnt had enough yet?

    hoezen-
    dr. reality, prescribes heavy doses of truth and open-mindedness. quite the bitter pill, but it beats being sick for a dozen years till you have to take regret by IV instead. His phone number? You'll find it in your heart, no matter how much plaque build up you've already got.

    good luck all a ya.
