Knjiga / The Book

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2017. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

This is my view on the crappy book that many people have been swearing by for the last four years. I am not violent, but I would gladly slap the author upside her face and hope I give her amnesia. It poisoned more people than the event that often appears in my writings. And mind you, I write about the event that poisoned about 1/4 of the planet's population.

I would subject all sickeningly ambitious people who read it to therapy, as it's clear that "The Book" taught them to be anything but altruists, focus solely on their own needs, blame others for their misfortune and "think only about nice things". In my humble opinion, a person who cannot deal with both good and bad in the world should probably test their limits and see how much they can take. Living in a bubble is not the answer, really. Also, if you're saving yourself, what are you saving yourself for, anyway?


Ako ih ne vidiš da pate
oni neće patiti
oni neće plakati
oni neće zapomagati
ono neće postojati..., šta mi napriča?

Stvari se ne dešavaju jer ih nedovoljno želiš?
Začepi gubicu
i pronađi uže,
potrudi se da ne bude duže.

Ti, ti, ti, ah, ti, ma koga je briga?
Dobar toalet papir, ta vaša Knjiga.

Ja, ja ja...čekaj, ne mogu, to isuviše sebično zvuči.
Šta ću, nikad nisam dopuštala da me neka budala uči.


The book

If you don't see them suffer
They won't suffer
They won't cry
They won't beg
They won't exist...
...well, would you look at that?

Things don't happen because you don't want it hard enough?
I beg your pardon?
Shut your pie hole
And go find a rope,
Make sure it's not too long.

You, you, you, oh, you, who cares?
Good toilet paper that Book of yours makes.

Me, me, me...wait, I can't, that's too selfish for me.
What can I do, I never allowed some idiot to teach me.

    Znam na koju knjigu misliš. 🙂 Radi se o knjizi "Tajna", zar ne? Baš me zanima da li si je ti ikada pročitala?

    If you are referring to "The Secret" and are looking for a place to seek intellectual asylum, I can recommend Spain. The level of general culture in this country is rather low, but we don't usually buy crap like that "Secret" paranoia. I must confess I only know that book for what I read in the Internet after having been mentioned by some foreign people I know, but it's not widely known here, thank heavens, "The Da Vinci Code" was more than enough. 😛

    Cristina, it was published here only this year. I felt sick to my stomach when I saw it in the shop window, I almost wanted to get in the store, grab the clerk by her neck and ask why they're selling that shit. Honestly. It took so many good people away from us because they decided to step on others in order to focus on what they think their goals are, the richess and whatnot.

    Radmila, mogu da je pročitam, ali neće me promeniti.
