I just got word this morning that the race and relations conversation kiki and myself had, is now being featured in new haven Connecticut..
What this shows me, people want to have open and genuine conversations to better understand each other. It’s my hope that neither side gets lost and generalizes everyone into the same category, this act can become dangerous as I hope we have learned from days past. No one is immune from becoming the very thing they disdain. Sometimes this disdain happens slowly and most of the time we are unaware.
To anyone who has viewed this, thank you!!
I am now getting prepared for my sit down interview to discuss rock climbing and writing. Well wishes for this are appreciated
The humanity I see in you exists in me.
Beneath the earth of torn frailties
the earth groans,
the wars and hatred that burden your humanity have grown in me.
This pen that bleeds your silent truth
will write for the voiceless of a broken humanity,
may you find a home and be ever free.
If someone isn’t afraid to lose you,
don’t lose yourself trying to keep them.
“Americas elect have created the disease and we the symptoms.”
Americas plagued with illusions
the looking glass no longer knows reality,
with a single click people tangled in webs of deception.
History trapped inside the mind
lost inside the body.
Groups demand to be heard through the silencing of others.
Women fight against a gender ignoring the behaviors.
Decades later we are more diseased,
no closer to a solution drifting further from truth, becoming the lies we have given.
Whether the wars happen aboard or on Americas soil, the monster needs first be created
dehumanizing a color
to justify the atrocities.
We fight for the system we hate,
we are becoming all that we claim to despise,
we fight against the oppressed
we fight for superiority not equality.
America is becoming the created disease she has ignored.
I have heard them say,
“People will only treat you the way you allow them to treat you.”
I was put in a place and all was barren,
music played but every note was empty of song.
Stripped of all melodies
I heard lyrics,
It is not only you allowing people to treat you a certain way,
they are but a reflection of how you treat yourself,
a mirror of your mind and emotions.
Those that you have wasted time on,
you have first wasted on the illusion of self.
If I allow others to lie to me,
I have first lied to my self.
For some moments there are no lyrics,
only the music of self.
Above is the you tube link for the race and relations discussion between kiki and myself.
To anyone viewing, thank you and I appreciate any feedback.
This will be the first in a series of discussions.
