Perception

20160823_130936

When you look at the picture, what do you see?  

Am I smiling, sad, or just wearing a pleasant expression that tells the world a summary of what I want to portray?  And how do you know what’s reality; is it just all for display?  If you had to summarize me, what would you say?

How can our perception of things be so very wrong? 

Sometimes it’s like judging a book by it’s cover as we so often quote.  Other times, it’s like the famous idiom, seeing your glass half empty instead of half full, a wise person wrote.  Like after reading this, what will be your perception of this anecdote?

See here is the thing, how we see others and a given situation can depend on our own state of mind.  What is truly reality can get tangled up and unfortunately intertwined and combined with our own experiences.  You may be thinking….so what!  But before you brush it all off as no big deal, think about how this affects the people who could have been in your life but you dismissed them as not “for real”; the reason why the world has become so cold and some of us can no longer feel…that empathy for one another.

Man, perception is a mutha!

Oh, and by the way, in that pic……I was smiling, it was a good day!

So next time you think negatively of your sister or brother, have a bit more compassion and don’t let negative perception prevent a relationship from going further.

“Violence” Poem by Gabby Y

A poem by a very talented friend of mine, Gabby Y.  Pray to see more of her beautiful work soon!

violence

Bloodshed, in reality and on that square we call TV
Nothing but immoral wickedness is all we see
Insanity filling into the brains of youth
Everyone on the same path, so never knowing the truth
ink-303244_1280The world frying it into our minds
Leaving a permanent scare for generations to find
Continuing on what The Man’s goal was
To keep our people against one another
Because of The Man who would kill his own mother
Violence is a sin against the Father
One must stand up and follow the path of his forefathersink-303244_1280
Not the path of this devil
Who enjoys killing, hurting and scheming, yeah that’s his revel
So the people of Judah, wake up NOW!
Stop killing and betraying and take one big bow
Before the Father and pray for forgiveness
That we may all repent from our sins and be sinless
The Father has no intentions of allowing us to inherit
The Land of Milk and Honey with and evil state of mind
We must get rid of that Babalioness, and let’s combine
ink-303244_1280Our knowledge, talents and numbers
So that we may do the Father’s will and this time stay in our Mother!

 

 

Do You Love Me?”

Starting something new in 2017!  A short poem from yours truly illustrating how in my imagination the Father may define LOVE as it pertains to His relationship with us.

Do you love me enough to……

Not put anything or anyone before me?

Put away your idols for your soul to be free, living to work so you can pay the bills and afford that Audi?

Not to create things with your hands to put before your eyes as a mighty one;

Realize that I am He that brings forth life and can send death when it’s all said and done.

Not to play with My name and utter it as such a small thing;

or mix it with foul words as you think it’s clever when cussing.

Not to forget the day that I ceased to work, but remember to set it apart;

it’s not for gettin’ in your over-time, clubbing or fillin’ your grocery cart.

Not to forget whatever your circumstance, that your earthly Mother or Father,

or whomever I gave to raise you, never make them feel like a burden or a bother.

Not to plot to take the life of anyone for this you know is wrong;

going against the 1st command, be fruitful, multiply, sing praises to Me all the day long.

Not to lay with another man’s wife, no matter how much your flesh yearns;

Use reason over emotion and from her gaze and grasp you must turn.

Not to take from one another, without permission what isn’t yours,

with the intention not to return it; go get your own from your pick of stores.

Not to hide the truth from or about your neighbor, spreading lies and even slander;

not stand for behavior of those that devise and deceive, don’t be a by-stander.

Not to wish or thirst for anything that is owned by any other person;

their spouse, car, job, wealth, for this also to Me is a strong aversion.

If you truly love Me my child, just start with these 10 SIMPLE THINGS.

Stand up to the entire world, be different and see what righteousness brings.

Rebellion of the Gridiron Gladiators, by Bryan Long, Featured Guest Artist

husband-father-2

As many of you may know, there has been an enormous amount of injustice done and still being done to African Americans in the U.S. on many levels; just to name one, the criminal justice system.  As an African descendant that was born in America, the injustices that I see on a daily basis hurt me very deeply.  What hurts even more is the inability of others to be able to have any empathy whatsoever.  The following are words of reflection from this talented poet, writer and activist for justice regarding the game in which quarterback football player, Colin Kaepernick, for the San Francisco 49ers refused to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he sees as wrongdoings against African Americans in the U.S.  Many citizens of the U.S. are beginning to understand that the mistreatment of African Americans boils down to a matter of not civil rights, but human rights.  Bryan uses his poetic skills in a creative way in this poem to demonstrate just this point.
