Intransient


 

Minor setbacks set the scene for major comebacks.

I fall down seven times and stand up eight.

I don't let the roaring storm determine my fate.

I refuse to dwell on what once was.

 I only have time to focus on what is.

Regardless of the circumstances I choose to face my chances.

I embrace my struggles.

I welcome my plight.

No matter if I my choices or wrong or right.

I may buckle but I will stand and fight.

I may battered.

I may get broken.

I may even get reduced to tears tears.

Whatever happens I will find a way to persevere.

Ambition


Let it guide you.

Let it 
 inspire you.

Let it motivate you.

Let fuel your desire.

Let it ignite your passion.


Let aide you on your path.

Never let it's spirit leave you.


Never loose sight of it.


Let warmth from it's glow reside deep inside you.

Whatever you do make sure to not allow it to consume you.

Void




You pray and pray until your knees become chapped.

You give and you give until you collapse.

You train and train until your muscles ache.

You read and study until your head throbs.

You shop and spend money erratically.

You need big houses, fancy cars and the best of anything money can buy.

You eat until your beyond full.

You bounce from one meaningless fling to another.

You don't show your affection you crowd and smother.

You curiosity is never safatisfied.

Your not content with anything.

Nothing you do is never enough.

Your like a balloon with a hole in it.

You'll never be filled completely up.

You keep trying to fill your empty space.

You keep missing the piece of yourself staring you right in your face.

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.

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.

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.

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?

The intent


Be intentional with actions.

Intend to live.

Intend to love.

Intend to give.

Intend to receive.

Intend to be open.

Intend to believe.

Intend on being kind.

What ever desire put intention behind it.

Intend to see it through till the end.

Intend on seeing results and you will always find them.

Reflect


We all fall of the glory somewhere in some respect.

Were all worthy of redemption and saving grace.

How far would you go to save face?

Are you too good to admit your wrong or need help?

Do think you don't be need anyone?

Do think you can do it all by yourself?

Can you show the same mercy mercy you seek or are too worried about appearing weak?

Can you find peace?

After you let go will you have the ability to see things clearer?

You at war but not with everyone.

It's just you vs the mirror.
