Every day, you make a choice
To stay silent or raise your voice.
And that's your choice, and I respect it.
I just want you to know
That if today, you decide you want
To be a lion
and let people hear you roar,
I'll roar with you until you don't feel alone or broken anymore.
Well It Seems That The Truth...
Is That A LOT of Pursuits...
AREN'T REALLY That Cool... !!!

Like The Pursuit of WEALTH...
ABOVE... Mental Health... !!!

And The Pursuit of FAME...
To Have Yourself Placed...
In A World Full of SNAKES...
Who Have... NO SHAME...
And Are MOSTLY... FAKE... !!!

Because Names In The Game...
DON'T Seem To Play STRAIGHT...

When It Comes To ****...
And Things That... STING...
For Them To Get In...
And Get STINKING Rich... !!!

A Pursuit That STINKS...
... Do You Get The Link... !?!

Because Industry Links...
Seem To Employ Tricks...
As Well As... RACISTS... !!!

And When It Comes To Kids...
Their Tricks Become SICK... !!!

Cos’ Their Pursuit of Them...
Has Caused PROBLEMS...
And Lead To... DEATHS... !!!

Because of The STRESS...
That Affect Young Heads...
When They Are Children... !!!

Because of ABUSES...
That MOGULS Be Using...
That Keep On ABUSING...
Just Like... PAEDOPHILES...
Who DON'T Seem To Stand Trial... !?!

Some Pursuits When Profiled...
Make Some People Act WILD... !!!

Like Those Who See ***...
As Something To GET...
NO MATTER What METHODS...
They Use For... *** Sessions... !?!

Many Are... FOUND...
To Pursue More Than HOUNDS...
With Those BASKERVILLE' Sounds... !!!
The DOC' And SHERLOCK...
PURSUE... Like Them COPS... !!!

Who CHOKE Men To DEATH...
When Their Knees Pressure Necks...
To Their Very LAST BREATH... !!!

Because Their Pursuits Lend...
Themselves To New Trends...
Like Those That NOW MATTER...
When Death Becomes BLACKER...
Than... Racist Attackers... !!!

You See Some Pursuits SHATTER... !!!

And Fuel PRETTY CHATTER...
That Pursues A New Chapter...
Where Black Folks Aren’t Left...
By Policemen For DEAD... !!!

You See This Poetry...
Is One That Yes Deals...
In..... REALITY.....

NOT... Pursuing POWER...
Like Those Who Now COWER...
In Bunkers Like Trumpers...
of... IGNORANT Numbers...

My Pursuit NEVER Slumbers...
Or... Pursues Those HUMMERS...
Like Suckers Now DUMBER...
Than Dumber And Dumber... !?!

It’s Really A WONDER...
Why People Pursue...
And... Do What They Do... ?!?

To IMPRESS... Be WELL DRESSED...
And Pursue What’s WORTHLESS... !?!

“It’s All Relative...”

Is What Some Would Suggest...

However To BETTER Your MIND...
... Is The Type...
of Pursuit I Now Like... !!!

Cos To Tell Y’all The TRUTH...
I’m TIRED of LIFE...
And Pursuing A Wife...
Good Times And Good Vibes...

Cos This Life’s Given PROOF... !!!
That It’s Best To Be SHREWD...

And To NOT Get TOO Cute...
When It Comes To The Moves...
You Pull To Be... “ COOL “...

It’s Like Pulling A Tooth... !!!

You Must Go To The ROOT...
of What Lies WITHIN YOU... !!!!!

So Be CAREFUL What You Choose...
And Be... WISE And ASTUTE...

When It... Comes Down To.....

....... “ What You Pursue “......
So many things that people pursue in life, but as the saying goes, sometimes, curiosity may well just **** the cat.........

Caught within
the cot I built
to slaughter
all the goals that fit

A miasma, thick
with success and stress
in growth, the wisest
call duress

on my throne
sits the black honed axe
seething at my fauna,
as I contemplate their imminent trauma

I'd rather watch them grow
as steel plummets to their throats
augmenting my flock of ghosts
enclosing the lonesome cot and throne
Mental duress, old and new.
She's in a
self imposed cage.
I can see it in
her eyes;
a demon's hell-fire.
She loathes humanity,
especially men.
Anyone can blame
past circumstances for
how they are currently,
but ultimately,
love unlocks the
door to the
prison of hate.
Hate and love are both choices.

Wasn't the one that fit in,
   table to myself, an ocean
                          of pressed wood

that I float on alone....


But...


    You know there's always a but,

Never really wanted
                                  anyone
on
       my life raft of solitude.

I just look up and know
that
        there's
no one to obscure
       my view of life...

My ocean is a fishery of thoughts,
                                  that are mine.

Swimming into
  uncharted life choices...

But I'm fine alone,
I'll talk to the fishes
every now
and then.

But throw them back
             when

I've finished with them..

For the pessimists you were born the day you hurt,
For the optimists you were born the day you survived,
For those unclassified you were born the day you decided to live,
For the realists you were born on the day you touched air,
For the dreamers you were born everyday,
For the independent you were born into your first thought,
For the hurting you were born on the day you died,
For the empathetic you died with them and you were born with a burden,
For the diplomatic you were born head first,
For the curious you were born skeptical,
For the brave you came out colored,
For the kind you were born battered,
For the lost your were born found,
For the found you were born lost,
For the new and untouched you were born fearful,
For the evil you were born most perfect,
For the forgiving you were born with an undeniable strength,
For the newly classified you were born to change the world,
Fate paves the roads ahead of us and obligated are we to follow,
except, why else did God build crossroads?
