"We Gotta Make A Change..."

"It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes.
Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
and let's change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive."


There's more to life than money. You can be "broke, busted, rusted" and still reach your success. Everyone stresses over money issues, and having too much is never one of them. America is so fuucking materialistic. We are the only country with no strong apprehension of character over image. We are filthy fuucking pigs. Never satisfied.
A seven year old African boy, dancing around a fire with white powder and warrior markings on his body. Every movement is fluid and a representation of his environment. THAT is rich. We have girls that starve themselves to fit size 0 pants. Cake on makeup and cover it up with extra large sungalsses. We are never satisfied with our own images. If only everyone realized each persons unique image in itself is beauty, our value of life would be magnified. Our way of life is NOT rich. We judge and judge, yet we cower from our true portraits. We ask for ipods and cellphones and never cherish honest time with families. Fuck. We FIGHT with family members! We FIGHT with those who share the same blood! A strong relationship with every member is given less value than a new car. We have no equivalence to the richness of other countries. From Ethiopia to Tibet. They might not have what we have but they truely value life.

We have no storytellers. We have no REAL. REAL love is rare...for we fall in love with what is FAKE. We are attracted to what we can only believe in. I, and only I, interpret love as "an attraction that makes me believe in my disbeliefs. An attraction that makes me question what is real." You can't fall in love with big breasts, because they are tangible. ( No Pun Intended ) You fall in love with the quickness that you respond to their texts and answer their calls. The excitement in being in their presence when future plans are created. With the fact that their happiness is the root of your happiness. You don't fall in love with what you can touch. Although you hold his/her hand, you feel in love with the energy exerted when palms touch. We have no more REAL.

We are never satisfied, we never have enough. We are the most glutonous and greedy country. Therefore we are the fattest yet richest ( $$ ). Rich with no meaning is like having a car with no engine. No. Betteryet, its like having a dog with no sense of loyalty. It will recognize you and bite you at times but still beg to be rubbed by you only when it wants. What's the point of having it?

Find your REAL. Find what you are REALLY passionate about. Find the REAL you. I can tell you where the REAL me is going to be in the next 10 years. Giving back to the REAL people in the Underserved Communities. That's REAL.

You didn't think I could explode like this.
Detonate and flow like this.
No longer a youth at this...
I speak the truth like this.
