Simple

No matter what they say…

Believe in you.

No matter what they say…

Seek and uphold only the truth.

No matter what they say…

It doesn’t matter what they say.

Just. Be. You.

Hope

Have you ever dared not to hope? Ever been plagued by the plague of reasonable doubt? Ever confidently secluded yourself behind the fortified walls of your justified unbelief…?

If so then you, my friend, have practiced suicide. Not to worry- most humans do… myself included. Afterall, why run the risk of hoping for the improbable and then having to scrounge around for a remedy to the disappointment…?

And yet… a hope guaranteed is no hope at all. Fear has damned us all… if we don’t know it, then it’s not worth experiencing… but how can we ever progress beyond if never dare to lose it all?  How can we attain the future’s treasures lest we risk regressing to past snares and pleasures?

You see, by embracing the mock safety of not daring to hope whenever we need protecting we have stripped ourselves of life… Soul stuck stroking around a moat, while the body degenerates and the mind decomposes…

The jousting practice of preventing hope from being unseated is just as important as the war in which we depend upon our hope to yield victory.

Wield your mighty hope mightily…

Though sight be made blind, and dead fingers be yet pried- never surrender the burning light of your hope inside.

A Slice

Humility.

Just the very mention of it makes one cringe.

Unbidden, it conjures up images of bowed heads and foully manipulated subservience. Afterall… in a world that barely honors masters- who wants to be a servant? But we can only claw our way to the forefront for so long before the bloody muck of our fellow denizens stops and gives us pause…

Humility.

Teeth grind. Eyes glare. Muscles clench. Everybody boasts about various aspects of strength, but there’s only silence when it comes to this. Nobody that wants to be good at not taking credit. Nobody wants to excel at excellence if the spotlight is exed out for extra merit.

We are wholly unwilling to be a part of a thing if it is bigger than our roll in it.

And its even worse when you know winning, it’s like goal tending, you’re shot blocking even before the throw is finished…

But being a humble visionary might require you to take a backseat. Whisper loudly, pray intimately, and seek Wisdom outside of your comfort zone and long reach- stretching beyond your limits…

Humility.

It’s spotlight shows the humbly proud.

Humility…

Humility…

Humility.

To Be

To be what has not been requires being oneself once for self and then again for men.  There is no being without self identity just like there is no friendly fire without enemies. It’s plain to see. That if you’re about the life you claim to be you can’t be striving for assimilation of the latest mass produced copy. That’s sloppy. And your life will be in vain like needles in a mirror. You need to be clear so you can be clear so when who you are begins to BE right here…

There will be no doubt that your light can’t be sat on like secret eyes from outside the atmosphere.

New Day

Woke up this mornin feelin like a boss
Poppin tags like my swag was from Ross
Similar to Mike Jack I’ve got a bad moonwalk
Outta this world like Marvin and that ain’t table talk
But I am breakin boards- karate choppin the charts
Unsigned hype, no signature for what is right
Been shinin all my life, you can find me in the light
I’m a surgeon of impact, connoisseur of inspiration
Superman sent to make superlatives of the nations
I’m walkin on clouds. Standin on water.
If ya wanna unseat me, ay buddy don’t bother
Come for a king, and you’ll wake up servin paupers
Threaten my state of being, and you’ll end up in a walker
Put this veil on like a middle eastern daughter
I suggest you team up with greatness before you end up in a coffin
Cuz it’s a new day, and I’m feelin so swell
Hell pales when Heaven shells itself out so well
And I’m here to represent it. Avatar for the kingdom
Shocking power like Benjamin, indomitable like freedom
