inspiration

The Rejuvenation of Hope

Aspiration; that’s what floods my concentration.
Elevation; trying to awaken the whole nation.
Infiltration; into the minds of every race and
variations of speech and deliberation.
But one nation is what I preach to the congregation
on every station; Latin, Asian and even Haitian.
Maturation; is what we need for propagation.
A saturation of love with no hesitation.
And this equation is what will end the condemnation
of God’s creation and bring us to that culmination.
Our graduation; into peace. Get in formation.
Our situation calls out for this salutation.
This information is given out with calculations.
That our nation will finally rise to the occasion
and a celebration will be in order for the duration
of procreation, giving birth to inspiration…

Imperfection Makes Perfect Sense

“A life without perfection makes perfect sense”

I’ve realized that people don’t really want to fix all of their problems. They’d just like to forget about some of them for a couple of hours. We always talk about perfection, but as humans, do we really want to be perfect? I think not because once that perfection has been reached, where will we go then? It’s the act of chasing perfection that keeps us alive, giving us a thrill. The chase makes life interesting; like we’re on a mission. A mission that we really never want to complete.
We hate playing the game, but truthfully, we never want the game to end. This is why when things become too perfect at home, in our relationships or at work, we do something to sabotage that perfection. We start an argument, we cheat on our spouse, or we abruptly quit our job and start over.
In a sense, being perfect is boring. It gives us nothing to look forward to, nothing to chase. It is our imperfections, flaws and shortcomings that allows us to have a sense of purpose. I believe it is in that purpose that we can gain a glimpse of what we are looking for…perfection.

Grant Me This Boon, New Year…

Welcome, New Year…
all filled with joy and cheer.
Blessed be, all whatever you believe.
What you sought in the season, will soon be received.
Every resolution made, becoming solid ties;
instead of false promises, excuses or lies.
Let us refrain from correcting others, lest we stand corrected.
Embrace love, leaving hatred and bias dejected.
Making all lives count, remember, black lives matter.
Do away with prejudice, racism shattered.
Come together as the human race;
judge all by character, not by the color of ones face.
Me personally, I pray to walk out from these obstructive doors;
so I may be able to live and travel like Dora the Explorer.
Last, I sue for perennial peace, praying that America will
leave and stay out of the Middle East.
Oh, and I pray our new President will start to act like he has some sense.
With that being said, let the New Year commence!

Konscious Thoughts

I want to share this quote with the masses. “You have to become that which you are not before you can become that which you are”. Now at first glance, you might be thinking, “what?” so allow me to expound on it a little.
How would you know tall if there was no short? How would you know hot if there was no cold? How would you know if you were a bad or good person if you never encountered a bad person?
In my younger days, I was not the man I am now. I had a temper, was unfaithful to women and had no regard for my life. But, as I got fired from jobs because of my temper, losing and hurting good women that I dated and putting myself in situations that could’ve cost me my life, allowed me the opportunity to be the man that I am now. These past situations, along with my incarceration caused me to decide that I no longer wanted to be the man I was before. I know what’s on the other side of the fence and what comes with it. I made the choice not to experience that nonsense anymore. I now choose peace instead of chaos, love instead of hate and to seek knowledge and wisdom instead of ignorance and foolishness. I also appreciate these things more because I know and understand the pain and tribulation that comes with its counterparts.
So, do not beat yourself up when you find yourself wearing those layers of cloth that were not cut from conscious fabric. Acknowledge them, realize them and decide if they are conducive with the image of who you really want to be as a person. If it is not, change them immediately so that you may become that of which you are; Konscious…

My Struggle, My Shine…

Coming through the fire, I’m no longer in the game, I’ve grown tired.

Of running in the rat race, it’s time I find my happy place.

No more fussing and cussing, no need to justify my actions; end of discussion.

Time to care about me and mine, I’m done trying to change anyone else,

I’ve done my time.

With no appreciation, I am not a miracle worker.

My story will no longer be a tearjerker.

It will have a happy ending, way better than the beginning.

I have lived and I have learned, these stripes I have diligently earned.

But still, I carry my beauty, shining bright from within. Still determined to win.

But will be sure to do it in style. Look at my face; you won’t see a million miles.

From stress, making me look old. That’s why I have turned cold

to all the games and the lies.

You will see my story in my eyes, but it will be that of success.

As long as I keep being me, I will be blessed

in most things that I do. Trust and believe my words will remain true.

Sit and listen as I tell you my story, it will be about my strife and all about my glory…

Konscious Effort

What I learned from self…
1) You can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
2) It’s easier to react than to think.
3) Control your emotions and your attitude or it controls you.
4) It takes years to build trust and only seconds to destroy it.
5) That it has taken me a long time to become the person I want to be.

What I have learned from others…
1) Always leave loved ones with loving words, it may be the last time you see them.
2) That it is not what happens that is important, it’s what you do about it.
3) It is not about what you have in life but who you have in your life that counts.
4) Our circumstances and backgrounds may influence who we are but we are responsible for who we become.

What I have been shown…
1) You can keep going long after you think you can’t.
2) There are people who love you dearly but just don’t know how to show it.
3) That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
4) No matter how far away I’ve been, the Creator loves me…

Moments of Motivation

Situations will arise that will put tears in your eyes.

Silent cries to the skies, sing’em like lullabies.

When you rise off your knees, feel the peace that surrounds your inner spirit;

you will know when you feel it. Yeah, that’s the joy that you’ve found.

You’ve been bound to the devil, been a rebel for years,

still trying to shift your life but keep stripping the gears.

It appears it’s all in vain, can’t let go of the game.

Got used to the pain and stopped trying to change.

You’ve been hit with Novocaine, Cocaine and Night Train

taking over your brain, now you can’t feel a thing.

Trying not to go insane…

Damn, your world is so dark,

I see you need a light, so let me give you a spark.

Close your eyes for a second, try to see with your heart.

HE will give you what you need, just keep doing your part.

Start reaching for the stars and climb out of the gutter.

Time to clean up your life; yeah, get rid of that clutter…

Damaged Goods

They compared me to the devil and called me Satan

but now I’m saving many people with the lyrics I’m making.

Thought that I had disappeared but I was dodgin’ those demons

guarding my semen from gold diggers plottin’ and schemin’.

Everything has a meaning so I took it in stride, swallowed my pride

and tried to keep my eyes on the prize.

Look…

So many lies are being aimed at our brains

folk tales and fantasies are replacing the chains

makin’ it rain but it can’t cover the pain

steady scrubbin’ the stain but it still remains.

You want change for a counterfeit dollar,

how can I lead you to the promised land if you won’t follow?

What’s the use of givin’ chase if you won’t keep the pace?

You’ll watch it from the sideline but won’t get in the race.

If you retrace all the steps I took, you’ll see how

they turned an honest man into a crook…

New Beginnings

I could mack a whole nation with my machinations

but I chose the liberation of this population.

No hesitation. Confident about my occupation.

You’re witnessing the galvanization of our God’s creation.

The stimulation of the minds in congregation.

Now salutations are received at our inauguration.

Let the preparation begin for the celebration

divine meditation led to this revelation.

Spiritual levitation done with no perspiration.

No more segregation amongst the denominations.

It’s the annihilation of the devil’s incarnation.

Congratulations, Heaven has received your reservation…
