rebel without a clue

Last night on msn I signed in with the nick ‘rebel without a clue’. Dunno what I was thinking when I took it up. Shakia came online and laughed her ass off. Obviously she found the ‘rebellious’ me quite ridiculous. Then we debated the issue for a while. I WON. (That is I babbled way to much bullshit and she got exhausted)

Anyway, while I was at it, I remembered something I read a long time back. Here it is:

He with body waged a fight,
But body won; it walks upright.

Then he struggled with the heart;
Innocence and peace depart.

Then he struggled with the mind;
His proud heart he left behind.

Now his wars on God begin;
At stroke of midnight God shall win.

-- W. B. Yeats, The Four Ages of Man

To the real rebels out there, don’t let this turn you off. Just go on and do what you gotta do. Cause even if you as a person make no difference, your work may last longer than you think. If you cant seem to find a war worth finding, may be you are just looking too hard. There is a lot going on around you that the rebel in you can make better. Good luck and Godspeed.
