Ghetto Superstar

At night I get lifted and dance with the stars

Wondering when ima get mine just so I can make it ours

Tryna hide my pain but they don’t make tattoos to hide these types of scars

Growin up in a world where that’d rather see me dead  or behind bars

Instead of in a Benz with good credit, studying to pass the BAR

Everyone is  scared 

So instead of raise they passed the bar

we grow up brain-dead, only concerned with getting fly and buying cars

Our rationale:if we cant win here let’s shine bright  as the stars

But it take a positive mindset if you want to get far

You gotta have drive even when you can’t find a car

and keep climbing even when the top seems far

So stay grateful for today and ready for tomorrow

Cause one day you gone be a Ghetto Superstar

Exoneration

 

Honestly, I always felt like I was never worth your time, let alone a piece of your heart….but now I see that the way you came up makes it not all of  your fault.

Still, that doesn’t stop the memories from haunting my thoughts…. and if anyone ever asked me what seperated us …I’d say …”it was the bitches that drove us apart”.

You miss birthday’s and  play dates……we never even went on a trip. Then whenever we came to see you…you’d slide off into the night with some chick…..seems like you wanted to be inside of them……. more than you wanted to love your kids.

Got me looking at monogamy with a twisted view…… and my sisters in a cypher of relationships that always leave them bruised.

I don’t even know you middle name your favorite foods to eat……because its was hard for to compete with the trills of the street.

You probably don’t even know I grew insecure and shy …….and often afraid to even speak my mind… and that’s because your bitches all was had your time.

So now when I see you we don’t converse… because for years I’ve pictured you in a hearse

But I’m coming to you… to call a truce…hoping it’ll fix my inner issues….because though you left me sad and blue…… I cant reject that I am you

You and I 

Have you ever notice how The Sun remains still while the planets in its universe revolve and rotate around it? It (the sun) manipulates these movements via a force called gravity. Gravity aligns and organizes the planets in accordance to the sun. So, The order of the Universe is dependent on gravity i.e. (In other words) Gravity is order. Imagine for a moment that Your mind is like the sun and your thoughts are like the planets. If your mind (the sun) is moving at the same rate as your thoughts (the planets) you’ll always be trying to catch up with them (your thoughts) But if you place your mind at the center of your thoughts you can arrange and organize them for maximum productivity. This is how manifestation is done, this is how you and I were created; by order of the Universe. Create order, create peace, then create life (manifestation).

Good Night Star children 😉

The Sinister Statistic

When you look at me what do you see? 
Do you see me as I am or as an image portrayed on tv? 

Am I being judged based on my character or on an infamous Gangster who’s plans you wish to shatter. 

Maybe Nino brown or frank Lucas, because maybe then it would make sense why you have to put me through this.

You seem adamant about killing my confidence and condemning my grace, because youre certain that men where I’m from are such a disgrace.

You try to hide your fear but it can’t help but show, because you begin to shake whenever you feel I’ve gotten to close.

although Id rather be friends you prefer the role of a foe, quietly praying I’ll take the plea and go back to the ghetto. 

I know why my brown tint frightens you, it’s because the government has fed you lies that you believe are true, and now that I’ve seen this side of you….I’ll probably never be able to confide in you. 

You question if I care but they answer is clear… because if I didn’t I wouldn’t standing right here….in your court room, pleading for mercy, while you think of creative ways to hurt me. 

I call your prejudice and you get so offended, becoming more anxious to punish me for crimes YOU’VE invented.

I tried to remain stoic but a part of me wants laugh…..at the plaintiff who’s blinded by a desire for cash….Is this what happens when the love doesn’t last? and Usian can’t even outrun your past? 

If I say sorry, will that make up for the decisions I’ve made? If I pawn all my jewelry can I escape being chained? Or does it benefit you more if I’m stuck in a cage?   

If you were me what would you do to maintain? If you lived where the cowards were murdering the brave, and your only option was to become someone’s slave.

BElieve 

Scientists have agreed that based on their body composition bees 🐝 shouldn’t be able to fly. In other words their wings are not physically strong enough to carry their bodies. However, despite this disadvantage bees 🐝 still manage to float through air gracefully. Because the bee is born with wings it BElieves that it was born to fly and so it does that thing in which it BElieves it was born to do, FLY. What if we are all born with wings? What if the only thing stopping us from flying is us? What if all we have to do is BElieve? 🐝

Journeymen 

On our journeys through life there are some paths which we are required to travel alone or with different and new people . Always remember that when a connection is genuine the people who’ve been connected will always find a way back to each other. So if I haven’t spoken to you in a while that doesn’t mean “goodbye” it’s more like “I’ll catch up with you later”.

What is “Pain”?

What if pain isn’t real? What if pain is just stunted growth? Growth that has been stagnated by our inabilities to let go of the parts of us that need to die off in order to make room for the parts that havent manifested yet. 

I read somewhere that at the root of all suffering is attachment. Based on my experiences with “pain” (or lack thereof) I believe this to be true.
