Play your part

We all have a gift.

We all have a talent.

We all have special skills that sets us apart.

In times of peril the world demands we use them to play our part.

We all  can help our fellow man in this great time of civil unrest.

We all can do something productive to ease this tension and relieve this stress.

So lets  go out and bring forth all your donations and contributions.

March forward for justice and unite as one to provide solutions.

So builders build.

Muscians compose.

Activist  get active.

Cooks nourish the troops.

Singers croon the tune of freedom

Comedians humor us and uplift our spirits.

Artist immortalize this moment for future generations to see.

Musicans let your your instrument's melody rejuvenate the souls of the  spiritually dead.

Rappers spit that spit. Tap in and reach out.

Religious figures steady your flock for choppy waters ahead.

Poets speak or write the doctrine for healing of the broken.

Leaders lead. Take control of the helm on organize the troops.

Hustlers acquire the funds spread it liberally to fund the cause.

Fighters protect and defend to bitter end.

Resesrchers fact-check media devils. Prevent the spread of misinformation.

Lets stay stay focucused

Lets move as one and not get side tracked or divided.

One thing we can no longer do is stay silent.

We're tired!

When you love someone you tell them the truth.

You tell them the truth no matter how bad it hurts.

You tell them truth because if you don't the situation will only get worse.

America I love you but here's  the deal.

I have to let you know exactly how my people feel.

My people are tired.

Facts!

This isn't "just" about  justice for brother Ahmaud  and brother George.

This is about decades of neglect and having "our" problems ignored.

We're tired.

We're tired of getting followed around the store.

We're tired of being over worked and under paid.

We're tired of being your  medical lab rats that you  conduct experiments on and run around "your" social maze.

We're tired of being told to turn down "our" music.

We're  tired of being told how to dress.

We're tired of having to settle for second best.

We're tired  of being told that slavery, jim crow, regonomics, and  the bushes all happend in the past and to just get over it.

We're  tired of having to console our children after you tell them their not good enough by calling them "that" name.[ n@g#!er]

We're  tired of narrative always being spinned, as if it's our "own" fault for being declared dead on breaking news at 10.


We're tired of  mass incarceration and you passing new laws specifically targeted at "us" just so you can fill your jails.

We're  tired  tired of being told if you hate it here so much then go back.

We're tired of hearing how your immigrant ancestors didn't speak a word of english but found a way to make the American dream work for them.

We're  tired of  having to give our young males a tutorial on how to survive a routine traffic stop when they come of age.

We're tired  of "your" women clutching their purses and covering their cleavage when our males ride the elevator with them.

We're tired of your system splitting up our homes.

We're  tired of red lining.

We're  tired of chem trails.

We're  tired of the judicial branch moving like snails. ( when it comes to delivering  justice  for  us)

We tired of the fashion industry telling our women thier features  are not pretty enough.

We're tired of your news painting a picture of "our"people in a negative light.

We're tired of having to be athletic, perform, or entertain you "just" to make you treat us right.

We're  tired of Becky and Karen  falsely calling the executioners on us and not getting cited of fined for doing so.

We're  tired!

We're tired!

We're  tired!

WE'RE TIRED......DAMNIT!

America we didn't mean to hurt your feelings but I had to let you know.

Now kindly remove your knee from our necks.

Get your feet off our backs.

Remove your vice grips off our wallets.

Kindly stop pumping your poisons into our bodies and minds

One last thing you'll  listen if you trully care. 

 Pull your nose out of our affairs.

We love but Lord knows we're  tired of you.

Owning it

I  call my power back.
I banish all feelings of helplessness.
I silence confusion.
I'm taking back my confidence.
I'm putting it back in gear.
I'm unsticking myself.
I'm done licking my wounds.
I'm taking action.
I'm making strides.
I got knocked for loop.
I'm strapped in now.
I'm ready to ride.

Quarintine challenge

That Cor-ona Viruss!
That Rona.

It has us all shook.


Thousands infected.


Thousands suffering. 


Thousands dead.


Now were all isolated  in seclusion.


We're  all being fed false information that's propagated with illusions. 


We've entered a 

 of face masks and sanatizers.

We do everything  within our power to slow the spread of this virus

We give so much attention to "it" we ignore the dis-esse that's been growing inside of us years.
fuelling our insecurities and stoking our fears.

Now we come up with all. these challenges to pass the time.

Concious yet still slumbering. 
sighted yet spiritually blind. 

You've been doing all these crazy challenges.....Well I challenge you to accept mine.

I challenge all of you to make the very best of this time.

I challenge you to check on your loved ones.

I challenge to assist those without sufficient means.

I challenge to spend quality time with your family.

I challenge you to finish that project you've  been blowing off before the quarentine hit.

I challenge you to stick to a fitness regimen and not quit.

I challenge you to utilize all your gifts.

I chanllenge you to say and post positve things during these times.

I challenge you to practice mindfulness and self- care daily.

I challenge you to be grateful for everything you currently have.

I challenge you to intellectually grow

I challenge you to accept what is gone.

I challenge you to let go of all henderances and move on.

I challenge you to end your own internal war.

I challenge you to "be" the change your looking for.

center circle.

Who got you?


Examine your circle.


Who tells you the truth with love and who takes shots at your expense.


Whose their for real and whose their just for frills.


Who claims you at worst and applauds  you at your best.


Who can you count on when the chips are down.


When you need a shoulder to lean on who can be found?


They say there is strength in number but are those numbers weighing you down?




Examine your circle.

spice

Everything aint for everybody.


We're all unique in this universe.


We all have different view points.

We all have individual tastes.

We all move to the beat of our drum.

We all step at our own pace.


It might be fun to you but all z's to me.

I can't do you and you can't do me.


That should be cool.

That's how life is suppose to be.

Think of how bland life would be if everything was the same.

Celebrate variety.

Welcome change.

hindsight

Sugar looks like salt.
The grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Don't be blinded by everything you see.

Nine times out of ten your probably experiencing a manufactured  reality.

People that you think have it together are secretly  going to pieces on the inside.

Before you rush to judgment look at the situation from a fresh set of eyes.

Do the research.

Acquire the knowledge.

Asses the situation fully before you believe what think you saw or what you believe you overheard.

Judge for your own self.

Don't run with the heard.
