Rebirth

my father birthed me within his fire, taught me the love was temporary like the days left in my childhood and that one day I would feel content with the rage he would eventually pass down to me…my mother birthed me with her passion, instructed me that the more I spoke, the more I would believe in lies that hide behind every grain of sand would be the one day that water would drown me too…my parents, they would be a statistic to the majority leaving me with an impression that if I begin anything, I should understand the ending too…I was barely a teenage when they gave up on the idea of love but I knew way before I formed words that they were at odds with the fairy tales that were fed to boys and girls my age…my parents birthed me to infidelity before the women I fell for would scar my mind like stars who light up a whole night and manipulate a dark sky the same way my parents led on another into an abyss…I was meant to be born with an idea that hours were counting backwards, not forward, because humanity seemed to be always reverting to a time where we were meant to stay naive…but I was birthed with a sun in my chest, giving rays to a beat that thumps to my hands and feet telling my inner voice that I was born with love, I was born with love – the type that didn’t want to falter in the eyes this earth has…I was born with love that was uniquely designed to fit you and I and when my parents gave birth to me, they gave me fire and passion so no one else could hurt me like I can hurt myself…

finding peace

Here’s the thing…I see a lot of people upset with what is going in Ferguson and everyone is entitled to their opinions and feelings but let’s not act on ignorance… we are forgetting that a family lost a son, and they will forever lose that part of their life… I can’t begin to think or feel what they are, but I know they were looking for a little peace of mind in a form of justice and they didn’t even get that… they have every right to feel whatever they feel over this… yes, there are riots going on, but let’s also acknowledge all the other people who are demonstrating peacefully, which is the majority around this country right now… as a Hispanic and American, I will never understand the discrimination that exist towards the black and African American communities and I’ve see too many of peers be completely insensitive towards this topic… we (people who aren’t part of black or African American community) will never understand the oppression that was built for 100 of years towards them and their rights say they have something called “freedom of speech” like you and I… if you are sick of hearing about their complaints, think about how sick they are about the same things happening over and over… privileges are blind in this country because we made them blind and the people who exhaust these privileges are lucky –not realizing how fortunate they are…this is an example of conditioning to it’s best… too many people have been conditioned for too long and this demonstration is an example of more people trying to chip at the molding of an over-aged foundation….an example that we shouldn’t be conditioned like robots, but like human beings who actually feel the weight of the world…

Live it

your life is,
slates being carved,
foundations getting constructed,
canvas’s turning filled
statues becoming resurrected
and you –
you are the artist
making it work
