Lost In Thought 11/22

You think about it all day,
You think of ways to change,
You think of ways to grow,
Spend your entire day thinking,
Until you think the day away.

You think it’s getting better,
You think you’re getting stronger,
You think you’ve found the solution,
You think that,
Until you think yourself into doubt,
Think yourself into fear,
Hey I think you’ve fell back to square one.

I think you should put thought into actions,
I think you should stand and take chances,
I think we shouldn’t over think,
I think you’d love your ideas when you see them come alive,
Thoughts are not meant to be coveted.
I think you should open up,
Before your door close.

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

July 25th-Emmett Till

Looked a white woman in the eyes,
I should have died today,
Spoke to her kept it as simple as “Hello”,
Though I,
Couldn’t help but think,
I should have died today,
As she turned away I looked once more,
That’s old fashion, Continue reading “July 25th-Emmett Till”

We Tend To Forget.

Mama never thought she was naming a hashtag,
Naming a victim,
Naming another cause for the march ,
She never thought she was naming a headline,
Naming a subject of a CNN discussion,
Mama never thought she was naming another name to the list,
Mama took her time to create,
A name to be place upon a Queen,
Not a name all over the news,
Another grave for black youth,
It’s a shame,
Things we must remember,
Pain isn’t just in our black men,
But also within our women,
Mama we know this wasn’t the she deserved,
I share your pain through these words.

The Message.

IMG_0968They want you in fear,
They kill black men to grab your attention,
They take away your fathers and brothers,
They find the root of your support system and kill it,
They want you to fear giving birth,
They destroy the minds of growing black men so they have nothing to offer,
They tie your black men to a system that forever follows them,
So even when your black man wants to change…he can’t,
They kill us to break your heart,
They want to give you the fear to never experience this again,
They hope you choose not to birth and raise another black man,
They know the only way to get rid of us is to get rid of you,
This is the message they’ll attempt to send you,
Black woman.

Numbers Lie?…

If your argument is more whites are killed by police than blacks, I advise the white community to bring these situations to the light. To me that number means nothing, as humans we tend to know what we see and what we experience. You want us to believe you face the same issues we do? Show us and we’ll gladly fight for justice with you. White & Black hand in hand fighting for our rights. See when a black man is murdered by police we don’t see much frustration from the white community. We don’t see a white community that’s tired of the same issue. We see (not all) but plenty of the white community stand behind the police. When your emotions match the numbers maybe then that statistic may mean something … Until then #blacklivesmatter.
