Op-Ed: “Dream”

November 24th 2014 OP-ED #3

OP-ED-UNIQUE EXPRESSION-INSPIRATION

 Rant of the Week

Experience.  Dream.  Risk.  Close one your  eyes  and  jump. Enjoyed  the  free-fall.   Choose  exhilaration  over comfort. Choose a magic over predictability.  Choose potential over safety. Wake up to the magic of everyday life.  Make friends with your intuition. Trust your gut.  Discover the beauty of uncertainty. Know yourself fully before you make promises to another.  Make millions of mistakes so that you will know how to choose what you really need. Know how to hold on and when to let go.  Love hard and often and without reservation. Seek knowledge.  Open yourself to possibility. Keep your heart open, your head high and your spirit free. Embrace your darkness along with your light.  The wrong every once in a while, and don’t be afraid to admit it. Awaken to the brilliance of ordinary moments.  Tell the truth about herself no matter what the costs.  Own your reality without apology.  See goodness in the world.  Be bold.  Be fierce.  Be grateful.  Be wild.  Crazy and gloriously free.  Be you. Go now, and live.

Poetic Lyrics by Intersection

Into It. Over It. “The Shaking of Leaves”

Into it. Over it. “The Shaking of Leaves”
By Intersection

Late this afternoon I heard your voice
It was the first time in what felt like years
It was a whisper in my ears and then the wind in the trees
It was the shaking of leaves that shook the streets while shaking me

Late this afternoon I heard your voice
I got hit for the first time in what felt like years
It struck me down a harmless jab at you while you rang loud and clear
You tore down the walls
Just as quickly you were gone

The New Haven expose
Must’ve heard me call us off
Must’ve heard my brief applause
Must’ve heard my disbelief

The New Haven expose
Confirmed they caught a killer
Well I caught a chill
When the newsprint said the gunman was nineteen

Late this afternoon I heard your voice
It was the first time in what felt like years

“Opening to Live”

Poem by Jennifer Kiley
Post Saturday 22nd November 2014

 

I am using this beautiful video with a rebirth and music to accompany the poem I am writing and not have written.

Rose of Jericho

Opening to live

Opening to live

An arms moves

The hand engages

The writing begins

Words with meaning

Searching for release

A thought lost

But now found

Inside the mind

Trying to make sense

Out of words

That come together

Communicating

A truth

All who believe

Will try to understand

Meaning

Will it be found

Or become elusive

Take flight

Like a butterfly

Doing its death flight

Never knowing

What is ahead

Do we want

the same privilege

no knowing

keep it to yourself

we will meet the time

when it arrives

not a moment before

isn’t that a relief?

What is Anonymous?

Anonymous is not a group, it is not a person.
It is an IDEA. Specifically it is the idea that all of us deserve freedom, freedom of thought, of speech, of expression of knowledge and of belief. The freedom to determine the course and destination of our own lives.

If you share this idea then you are one of us.
You have likely heard many things about Anonymous, some of them are true and some of them are not. We are not terrorists and we are not violent. We are citizens of the World who bear witness the tyranny, oppression and censorship.

We are your neighbors, your friends and your relatives. We prepare your food, repair your appliances, write your books, compose your music and create your technology. We are your postal workers, barbers, store clerks and lawyers. We are Atheists and we are…

OP-ED: “Apathy? Who Cares?”

November 17th 2014

OP-ED-UNIQUE EXPRESSION-INSPIRATION
RANT OF THE WEEK

Apathy? Who Cares?

INTRO (D. King) You are now listening to Tha Truth [VIDEO FOLLOWS]

What’s the point of gettin out the ‘hood with sports or rap – going back seeing your friends in jail, dead, or on crack – it’s that constructive criticism I unleash – though they say only god can judge me not no person on the street – saying don’t judge others that you meet when you speak – I speak with love – don’t judge – I critique corrupt governments and police – up to us find peace – up to us rise above – find ideas to try and seek – like homeless people – they don’t really need the food we give ‘em – what the homeless really need is some freaking homes to live in – Carlin had some vision – a plan you can understand the mission to take wastes of land where golf courses is sitting and use it for the homeless so they can have homes arisen – it’s too much apathy – that means people only care if them and their family’s living happily – it’s sad to see – we actually don’t know that we’re one human family it’s profound – we’re all African ’cause Africa’s where the first man was found we have the same background – rewind that back again – all racists are African no matter the color or their faces we’re all one race that’s African – Boyz N the Hood was a movie in the beginning that said like I would – like you could

HOOK:
I see apathy is everywhere who is gonna care (x3)

One day it could be you who needs help from who cares  It’s hypocrites saying they don’t dig hip hop’s rhythms – they don’t listen judging me ’cause of privilege and ageism – able-ism – heterosexism – look up the definition this system pits neighbors in competition – I got a vision of making a difference and sharing what we’re given – it’s something missing living with capitalism – bosses fire as many workers as they can and get rid of ‘em – they’d rather use machines then pay people so they can buy what they need – we believe people shouldn’t be rewarded for having greed – what’s that mean? that means money should never come before meeting human needs – being rich doesn’t impress me – you see it’s nothing special – it’s impressive to help the poor live on a better level – bosses paying minimum wage – acting like we slaves – we say how ’bout we enact them a maximum wage – ’cause in the richest country in the world we got to many poor people – a few people with too much we can’t trust to treat us equal ’cause under Republicans man exploits man – under Democrats it’s the opposite scam rewind that line two times to understand (oh you flipped it!)

They say heroes are crazy just for doing something nice – the crazy ones do nothing it ain’t right – we superheroes in real life – the world’s so evil we got real life superheroes in the night – watch the (Superheroes) documentary – you might join the fight – I wrote this verse in my rhyme quoting Albert Einstein – it was a crime in ’64 when Kitty Genovese died – stabbed to death – bystander effect – when people heard ‘em screaming it was a mess – instead of doing something they did nothing – 38 witnesses on the scene in Queens – in New York she was raped before she died by the thief – outside at 3 – late – she was only 28 10 years later same building Sandra Zahler faced a villain – just like Kitty they heard her screaming – didn’t try to stop the killing – it could be you, your cousin, your sister or your mother – do something – put yourself in the shoes of another no doubt – there’s a hero in you – let it out

People see someone in trouble – often ignoring it like they in a bubble – if you see a person – something bad’s gonna happen – gotta help, gotta help, gotta help help and take action! that’s the reaction we would want if we needed help without asking – can’t bypass a person in trouble and just pass ‘em  - treat others the way you want to be treated with a passion

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.” ― Jim Morrison

Labrinth – Let It Be

Post Saturday 15th November 2014

The music lyrics speak for themselves in this reggae piece of music. It is rhythmic and moving. Soulful. Enjoy. <3 jkm

Labrinth – Let It Be

“Let It Be”

Put my money where my mouth is
And I laid my cards
Imma go out fightin’ and leave my scars
I don’t know about tomorrow
But I know I got heart

Put my feet right on the margin
and I just might hit the bottom
Throw my hands out on the breeze
And let it be

(let it be)
(let it be)

Baby this is Russian roulette
And it ain’t my gun
Hallelujah I ain’t dead yet
and I’m still going strong (woh oh oh)
I don’t know about tomorrow
But the [?] ain’t done

They say losers are forgot
And I just might hit the bottom
But we all gotta take the leap and let it be

(let it be) Oh let it be
(let it be) Oh let it be
(let it be) Just let it be, woh
(let it be) Just let it be, baby

It’s time to turn the gun
Oh I gotta turn it all
Hope and pray
I think it’s time to catch that train
I don’t know where it starts
And I don’t know where it ends
I guess that’s the name of the game, oh no

Oh, got to let it go
Yeah, I got to let it go, yeah
Woh, let it be
Woh no oh no, let it be

(let it be) Cmon oh, cmon oh
(let it be) Let it be, baby
(let it be)

When you’re holding on your last breath
When you’re looking for a way out
Woh let it be
(let it be)

let it be
let it be
let it be
just let it be

Moulin Rouge - Come What May

Come What May

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I have never seen the sky before
I want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I love you more and more
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sings
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you until the end of time

Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn’t seem such a waste sponsored links

It all revolves around you
And there’s no mountain too high
No river too wide
Sing out this song and I’ll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather
And stars may collide
But I love you until the end of time

Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day

Oh, come what may, come what may
I will love you, I will love you
Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place

Come what may
Come what may
I will love you until my dying day
