Just no.


You gave until it hurt.

It hurt so much it nearly destroyed you.

It's ok to be their and help out anytime you can but it's not ok to be treated less than.

Now its to  embrace and exercise the power of no.

Say no unapologetically.

No I won't keep being the clutch.

No I won't go somewhere I feel that I'm wanted.

No I can't help you move.

No I can't watch.

No I can run you.

No I can't sign for.

No  I can't loan you.

No I don't have time.

No you can't vent.

No can't help you with that menial task.

Don't even ask.

No.

No .

No.

Just no.

hits different.


 
You can dish it out but you can't take it.

It's cool as long as it's not happening to you.

It's all just  jokes until the jokes on you. 

Your so witty and have "so" much to say until it's time for you to have your day.

Your critical of others mistakes but when you mess up all the sudden it's no big deal.

Your quick to advise others on how they should feel but when your the one going through it all the sudden you can't deal.

It's easy to sit outside of the bubble and look but it always hits different when the shoes on the other foot.

Figure it out


 

Take a deep breath.


Don't stress.

You have plenty of time.

Play it out in your mind one step at time.

Remove all your anxiety.

Quite all your doubt.

You have the help and resources you need.

You can and will figure it out.

I know

 



Don't should on me.

Don't tell me what I "should" do.

I know me.

I know what I can do.

You do don't know the first thing about me.

You don't have a single clue.

If was to ask for your help or your feedback you wouldn't have anything to say.

Just do us both a favor and stay out of my way.

Charmers.




All smiles aren't friendly.

Every one in your circle isn't who they claim to be.

 Be more selective of who you choose to share things with.


Some people that claim they love secretly want to see you fail.

They'll give praise to face and secretly be plotting to take wind out of sails.

Just be silent and let them talk.

They will eventually reveal themselves.

Its better to walk alone than recieve false help.

Check in






Life's all about routine maintenance.

Its nesscary to pop the hood sometimes too see if everything's still running smoothly.

Just take a  moment out to reflect on how you feel.

Breath deeply to see where your at.

Are you ok?

What's the format?

Did that thing really bother you?

You need to know.

Your true feelings won't always be aparent.

They won't always show.

Check on them.

Take inventory.

Make time to sort everything all out.

Find your center.

Create a safe space.

The last thing you need is to slip into a sunken place.

Outside


 You don't have to be perfect.

Just be real.

Be true to yourself.

Be true to your art and express how you truly feel.

Don't be affraid to color outside the lines.

Live your truth.

Stand firmly on  your beliefs.

Don't seek validation.

Stick out like a sore thumb.

Embrace your flaws.

Don't be affraid to fail.

Above all just be you at all cost.

Don't try to follow after the crowd because their all lost.

Full circle.


Things have a way of ending the exact same way they start, that's why you must take great pride in your art.

Don't horde the knowledge all for yourself.

Give it away how it was  given to you with intention to help.

Give freely.

Lovely unconditionally.

It will return full circle to you.

Keep heart noble and your intentions pure and watch all the wonderful things that will gravitate to you.

Move at a divine pace and you'll never be on the tail end of "anything" no matter which direction you face.

Just remember.


 Just close your eyes and capture this moment in this instance of time.

Do you feel how calm and serene it is right now?

It feels nice doesn't it?

Enjoy this feeling because it won't last long.

A storm is brewing and the minstrels are composing new songs.

The winds of destiny are blowing and it does not  bode well for those that have chosen to forget or worse yet those who are not the least bit concerned with the ongoing plight of the oppressed.

The seeds of revolt are germinating.

There will be another civil unrest.

When it happens again get to higher ground and do not act surprised.

Just reflect, receive, and above all remember.

Remember all the  times that the gavel banged for false injustice.

Remember all the falsely accused.

Remember all the trumped up charges.

Remember every man, woman and child that ever got strung up by a noose and hung from a tree.

Remember how the word picnic came to be.

Remember every piece of land ever stolen from us.

Remember every lie ever told to us about us.

Remember slavery.

Remember Tuskegee.

Remember Jim crow.

Remember cointelpro.

Remember redlining.

Remember chem trails.

Remember Flint.

Remember Tulsa Oklahoma.

Remember Merger.

Remember Fred.

Remember Bobby.

Remember Malcolm.

Remember Martin.

Remember Emit.

Remember Mike

Remember Tamir.

Remember Freddie.

Remember Sean.

Remember Eric.

Remember Philando.

Remember Sandra.

Remember Rhogena.

Remember India.

Remember every dereliction of duty.

Remember every loan, bail, and opportunity denied.

Remember every tear shed from a black parent as they were told their child died.

Remember all these injustices as the tension slowly mount.

Remember how you benefited from it or stood ideally by as it was happening right in front of you.

Remember how each soul felt before the first blow was delt.

Remember all the shrieks of pain from the past.

Remember all those things as you gaze upon the rumble and the ash.

Remember how we groveled

Remember how we begged.

Remember how we pleaded.

Remember how we confided in you and the way we vented.

Remember if you would have only done "something" this could have all been prevented.

Moving forward.


You call it change.

I call  it efficiency.

I just get straight to the point now.

I don't have time to invest in things that do not better me.

I won't waste time on things that do not nurture my creativity.

I no longer waste time on painting pictures for those who are too blind to see.

I no longer have the constitution to be around those who do not believe in me.

I snip a corner here.

A tuck an edge there.

A fold here.

A crease there.

Now it's all rearranged to "my" liking.

I'm now operating efficiently on my time.

Listen up





 Sometimes people don't want answers.

Sometimes they don't need truth.

Sometimes logic isn't required.

Sometimes no feedback is exactly the remedy they seek.

Sometimes they just want to open up to an ear kind enough to hear.

Promised


 Promises promises.

Why give your word if you do intend on keeping it.

You promised your time and and you wasted it all up.

You promised you'd be there but you never even attempted to show up.

You promised your loyalty but the streets collected the debt.

You promised your devotion but  you live only to serve you.

You promised to keep word.

You promised to stay true.

You continuously break your promises.

What's that say about you?

Run that back

 



No way.

No how.

I haven't even started yet.

This is just the warm up stretch.

Your getting yours off right now.

I'm letting you enjoy your turn.

Just remember

I got next.

I'm  nowhere close to being done .

It's not over until it's over.

I haven't officially started yet.

Now let's try that again.

Don't get hyped up by the score board.

Don't get cocky from the stats. 

Ball in.

Game on.

Run it back.
