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.

Just Another Nigga.

Something I could never be,
Born to leave a legacy,
Though I’m born into hell it seem,
This little light of mine I let it beam,
Refuse to be another nigga the world already seen,
Don’t need a screen to change the scene,
Change your path alter expectations,
Snakes hidden in the grasses waiting,
See you fail they congratulating, Continue reading “Just Another Nigga.”

The Bottom

“You’re never as low as you think”-Bas
It takes time and true understanding to learn that we create our own idea of “the bottom”. It starts internally with the things we tie our hearts to that brings us joy. When they aren’t working in ways we believe we need them we begin to feel hopeless. It’s almost like having tunnel vision towards your desires. Too many times to we limit ourselves & our happiness to the things we want instead of the things we need. The only bottom we have is the bottom we create for ourselves. Sometimes when we hit what we believe to be the bottom it’s the first step to raising to the mountain top.

Somethings have to be said..

America, we can ruin countless young black lives & trap young black youth in the system. Yet show pity to the white youth. A topic I can expand on but before this Brock Turner situation is made about race. The victims here are women, a blatant slap in the face. How do you defend someone’s choice to forcefully take something ? A person’s choice to leave a woman with an event that may haunt them for the rest of their life. His fathers plea that it was only “20 minutes of action” is even more sicken. 20 minutes or 5 minutes rape is rape. For his father Dan Turner to even mention his sons depression is insensitive. No matter what Brock feels you can’t make him a victim. To look at this picture deeper it’s sad that this mentally exist in men. I’m tired of the “she was drunk”, “she wore revealing clothes”, no matter the case nothing entitles you to forcefully take anything from a woman. All it takes is self-control its sad something so simple seems as it’s hard to execute for some men. On top of that its a shame that certain court systems can really sympathize with the rapist. As a gender how far have we really advanced when we still have men that act like animals entitled to whatever they desire. The struggles we may face as men is nothing compared to this. I pray to one day be in a position to shed more light on these issues. As a man myself we can’t allow for these type of cases to continue to pile up as well as the situations that are never brought to the light. We as men have to do better & protect our women.

Reasons To Die Before 25 (Excerpt)

This would have been my suicide note,
Filled with pain and promises I broke,
Giving your eye a tear after each line that I wrote,
I would have told you how I gave up,
How I was tired of standing at the edge of this cliff,
I jumped to see if the bottom was better,
Ironically the bottom when I used to pray for the highest heavens,
That would have been the end of me and this letter,
But it continues so I can tell you,
How instead of jumping off the cliff,
I gave my head a lift,
Instead of leaving you to suffer,
I’m here standing in the war with you,
My pen a pistol,
Lethal weapon,
My power beyond measure,
Through it all I just want to see your world better,
My today’s just want you to see tomorrow.
