The air buzzes with cheer as holiday music lightens up the atmosphere. Christmas is practically upon us but I'm not sure if I'll make it my dear for I have one week left of studying til basically the death of me. It's only five more days but I feel as if I've been here perpetually, here at school, and here stuck in this 2016 reality.
I've endured 20 years now but thus was the toughest one if you know what I mean. Lost a couple of friends and not to mention some brothers to the hands of the feds, fearing for my actual little brother's life because he has dreads and because he is smart and will standout in a circle of basics .
But by golly the year is almost over so I know we gone make it , but we can't forget that many didn't progress this far, losing their lives and souls to hate. And yes I said losing their souls so stop and let that marinate!Like rare steak, there is blood staining the lives of those who are oppressed! Mexicans, Muslims and even the native peoples of this land, but it doesn't just stop there because the whole world is a mess! People making it seem like solutions are just so far fetched but too scared to take the first step so of course, the top of the stairs is a stretch!
But why can't we just make the most of the time that we have left? I mean three more weeks can't make the difference but it's a great theory to test! Maybe for these three weeks you will smile more at people who are unlike yourselves, or for three more weeks don't be the Grinch, but be an elf and you will find that there's more to life than only acquiring material wealth. But in order to change the world, there must first be a change in self! You don't wait til 2017 to nurse your spirit back to health!
