Why do I appreciate the sunrise?
Just to ignore the moon fall.
Why am I thankful for today,
But fearful of tomorrow?
Why do I give hours to those who don’t love me?
And minutes to those I love.

Waving The Flag.

flag

            What does this flag stand for ? Terror ? Honor ? Glory ? Given yes soldiers have died for the flag. You claim to honor them ? Then why make the flag veterans died for unjust, distasteful and falsify it ? Why stand for an anthem that doesn’t reflect the times ? Many have died for the flag but also how many INNOCENT lives lost because of the flag. How many times America placed its foot down harming INNOCENT families in honor of the flag…Kaepernick opened my eyes to something I’ve been blind too for all my life. Why do I stand ? I thought I had to, I thought it was right, I thought I had no other option. I watch the hate and angry spark from Colin’s stance. The thing that confuses me is that the same people screaming at Kap, are the same people who disrespect the flag. The same people disrespect the president and his family ANY chance they get…The PRESIDENT the man chosen to be the face of the flag for 2 terms gets disrespected. Colin taking a knee is the issue though and not the “Americans” that disrespect the chosen face of the flag. Can we play fair America ? After stating multiple times his issue didn’t have anything to do with the military, countless people decided to take it in that manner. It goes to show how many people will avoid the main problem because it’s makes them uncomfortable. No one attempts to see the bigger picture being shown here. I close with this … Freedom why tease us with something you fear ? Free until it leads to freedo. Free until they believe they are losing control. What is freedom in America ?…Peace&Love

Sometimes you need a voice in your ear,
The way I stand as a man ain’t alone,
How much of a man are you ?
If you make it to the yacht,
But everyone else around you drowning,
Maybe I was raised different,
I can’t call myself a man and allow my brothers to remain niggas,
I can’t build a happy home with pity & a sad past,
Why would I offer you to walk in my shoes?
When we can step together,
No matter the situation & what you come from,
One day I’ll fall too,
Wise enough to prepare for it,
The day I’ll need you there for it,
So if I reach a believable highest height,
I’ll offer my shoulders to help you reach an even  higher height,
This is life how I see it,
Written by a black mans genius,
Hate us but wanna be us,
Black is free
Black is us
Black is you,
Black is me,
Black is God,
Can you see?
Sneaking under the overseers,
To achieve,
The life I deserve,
The rights that I’ve earned,
You can keep the stars but them stripes got to burn.

I Bit The Apple Too…(Excerpt)

image

I bit the apple too Eve
Though this time,
The serpent,
Sat in my palms,
Follows me everywhere
That is anywhere,
On this green earth,
Makes me forever take for granted,
My gifts that was handed since birth,
Now this plants roots tied,
To a device,
I like,
I like to write,
I like to type,
Which leads to tweets,
I forgot to eat,
This video was cool,
Watch the same vine 20 times,
Lost more than a couple minutes,
Didn’t even notice.
Today I’m motivated,
Grab my phone,
Open app after app,
Where’s my focus?….(To be continued)

Something You Forgot.

So is this us and who we are?
Heard you lock the door,
Turn on the car,
Gone…
The silence surround me,
Trying to find answers to your actions,
Not one thing in me,
Couldn’t find a reason for you to leave,
Without me…
Our bond was everyday,
Not a day went by without me,
You touching I,
Who has your back like I do,
