Martin Luther King had a dream.
He dreamed  that we would be able to sit down at the table of brotherhood and have a  big slice of equality. His dream has partially come into fruition.
We now have opportunities and privileges we were once denied of because of his dream.
We definitely are in a better place because he dared  to dream.
I have dream too.
I dream that black son's can live in world where they don't have to speak to their black fathers from a correctional facility pay phone.
I have a dream that we no longer need affirmative to get employment satisfaction.
I have a dream that one day we won't have to become entertainers or athletes to achieve the American dream.
I have a dream that one day we'll start teaching our little girls to become empowered women.
I have a dream that one day we'll start teaching our little boys to become righteous kings.
I have dream that we'll start loving our own culture before we make painful strides to understand other cultures.
I have a dream that we'll stop killing each other over dated notions of hood etiquette.
I have dream that we will be able to gather peacefully in public places without having public law officials being called on us.
I have a dream that one day we'll learn to be more tolerant of each other.
I have dream that one day the truth won't be deemed as preachy.
I have dream that one day we will become totally self -aware and self-reliant.
I have a dream that we will stop being so easily divided and distracted on the matters at hand.
I have a dream that one day we'll stop insulting each other on social media and start toasting and wishing each other well in all their endeavors .
It's a nice dream.
It sounds really good.
Pardon me if I drift off on you in mid-speech sometimes.
 I was probably just dreaming.

I'm living in world full of white noise.
My thoughts are being drowned out by polluted air waves.
Every time I turn on the news I get the blues.
Every time I pick up my device I feel like loose a little piece of my life.
People always say things like stay positive and don't let what's going on in the world effect   what's going on in your world.
I wish that was an easy task to do.
I can't unsee the things I see.
I can't unhear the things I heard.
I can't unread the things I've read.
What is the solution?
How do you hit the mute button on a million screams?
Where's the escape hatch?
How do we put this ride on cruise control?
How do we unplug from the machine when everything has been mechanized.
We've all become desensitized.
We're all becoming weaponized.
We're all getting exploited and victimized for your entertainment.
All news isn't bad news but now a days good news isn't news at all.
How do we reprogram the programmer?
How do we take our peace back?
How do we get back on track?

If you have one of the answers.....that's news to me.

Sometimes it's had to find nice things to say when your situation looks so bleak.
Your dead on your feet and staring defeat in the face.
Your last spark just burnt out.
Your now officially running on fumes.
No one feels your pain.
No one cares about your struggle.
No one cares about your plight.
No one can dig you out this  hole.
It's up to you to fight.
No matter how bad things look for you .
You must speak life.
Speak life into your storms and skies will calm
Speak life into your pain and you will heal.
Acknowledge your struggles but don't let it break you.
Life is your own unique journey and no one else can take you.
Speak life into your  weary soul.
Speak life  into your aching bones
Speak life into your situation and the atmosphere will change.
Speak life in everything you do and nothing will remain the same.
Speak it.
Live it.
Breathe it.
Believe it.
Speak life.

Some people call me know it all.
I don't how they could ever come to that conclusion.
I don't know the first thing about most things.
I just know what I know.
I don't know much.
All I do know is that I have a thirst to know more than what I what I know.
I want to know more so I can grow more.
I want to share any newly found gems that I stumble on.
I don't fear the unknown.
I welcome it.
Getting stumped.
I relish it.
If you know more than all means point me in the right direction please.
I want to uplift with my knowledge not put down.
I want to get an understanding.
I want to find common ground.
I want to be relatable.
I want all my opinions to debatable.
I want the type of wealth that can never be depleted.
I don't have all the answers.
I hope I never find all of them.
I want information that can never be deleted.
I want don't want to know everything.
I just really have a desire to inspire.
So, no I'm not a know it all.
I just know what I know.

What do know?

Where are you at?
Why's it taking so long?
Stop analyzing and just do what you were born to do.
They're lost.
They're suffering.
They're crying out for you to help them.
Stop doubting yourself.
The ability's inside of you.
You are the one.
You are the wide awake dreamer they need.
Believe in yourself.
Be the leader you are born to be.

I let my light fill empty space.
I let it glow.
I trust it.
It knows.
I radiate it.
It shows.
I'll let it glimmer and until I'm nothing more than a mere flicker.
I let it shine for me.
I let it shine for them.
It glows for all time.
It will glow externally and warm you internally.
I let my light shine.
I let my light shine.
I let my light shine in the darkest of storms.
I let my light shine for the lonely.
I let my light shine for the for those that morn.
I let my light shine for the oppressed.
I let my light shine for those that have lost hope, the weary, the broken.
I let my light shine for those that can't seem to find like minds.
I let my light shine.
My light warms, comforts, and will always be near even long after  I'm gone my light will remain here.

The world needs a healing

Everyone is divided on all sides of the fence.
People are suffering feeling downtrodden.
They are in dire need of recompense.
We need a healing.
We're all brethren in the house of humanity.
We just look and vibrate differently.
We all bleed the same blood and the breathe same oxygen.
We all require the same amount of water to survive.
We are all one but give off unique energy.
Just because I love me some me does not mean I hate you.
Just because I love my kind and want to see them prosper and thrive does not mean that I want to see your kind wither and die.
No-one should be made to feel inferior.
Who is anyone to claim dominance over another one or call someone else inferior?
We let small things trip up.
Humanity is a race and were all coming in last place.
We're all bogged down with fear and allowing hatred to slow down our pace.
We fell down and got wounded internally.
I wish I could slap a band aid on the hurt and make it disappear forever.
I'm only one man but starting today I'll try to do all I can.
