A tiger

Viewed 594 times 2017-3-6 18:51 |System category:Life

In a cage, at first, the tiger said to himself that one day I would break the cage and walked back to the real world. The other day, still living in the cage in a carriage of a train, the tiger was moved to another place where he had never ever put his footprints on. Yet, he was forced to be there.

Arriviing there, he came a performing tiger of a circus. He was fed with fabulous food. He came to be milder and milder. He was trained by a beast trainer who was skillful in training a wild tiger into a performable tiger.

He said to himself that I have to make changes; now that I was the captive and there was no way to run away so I had better adapt to my new life; why not?

So he became a kitty-like tiger, tandalizing people with extraodinary talents in playing with rings with fire and the other without fire. He was a adaptable tiger.

For half a year, for one year, for two years and for three years, he lived with the clowns, lived with the circus boss, lived with other workers and other performing animals.

He said to himself that it's enough. So he was trying to be as lazy as he could. In the trainings, he was reluctant to move, lying on the floor no matter he gots beatings or kickings from the trainers. Yet, in the meal time, he ate as much as he could to the point where his whole stomach was full and could not fill anying in at all. For around a week, he became an incompetent tiger, which could not help the circus earn even a penny. He was kicked out of thet circus at last.

While walking in the sideless grassland, he finally felt the excitement with freedom. He ran back to the forest in aim to look for his homogeneous species.

    Never ending 'war on terror' is no accident. With capitalists or against them. And yes change in media and CIA taking complete control is no accident. These actions are actually proof of how scared and weak the American 'elite' are and people hate them more now than in the 90s. JJ  Abraham cannot save them. It's only a matter of time. Conditions are now perfect to destroy them

    Only simple people can be happy with a simple life. I am not a simple person - I am quite complicated.

    HailChina!: Have you ever seen the show 'The Simple Life'? It was an American TV show featuring millionaires Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie and it was about them ...
    You must have got a lot of feelings for what has been done by American media. Terrorist actions are always big blows in America. Maybe the media knew what "the most familiar" to people is what "the most eye-catching to them" . When peace and prosperity were all around America, the media sold peace and prosperity; when terrorist actions and "having fun of the disadvantaged" are so permeated in people's hearts, especially the rich, the media sell those. Commerce runs as it does but we can be not just as what the reality tells us. We may be different from people of other times; yet, we must share the same nature of being. No matter what "realtiy" shows us, the nature of being shall lead us half step forward with half step in thinking through "reality". The reality is so complicated that unveiling real happiness out of simple life will be so precious and cherished.
