Lost N Found(Recap of Manhood)Part IV

Lost N Found(Recap of Manhood)Part IV

By the time you hear this, it might just be too late.

My eyes been open since

Late 2008....

You see we made History,

first black prez

We all made amends

So at least that's what we thought

But instead we just made trends

#BLACKLIVESMATTER

#ICANTBREATH

Police all of a sudden had WMD up they sleeve.

So many black bodies, shot up hit the floor,

Make a soul shook

Don't even wanna step outside anymore.

2016

Real Eyes

Realize

Real Lies

No surprise

I can see my future

See my demise

So go ahead

hand me my accolades.

First up Nobel Peace Prize.

It's so sad that the people that were part of the best memory, become a memory.

They ask me where's my hearts at, well good luck finding that.

It's Deep submerged in water, trying to scratch the surface above,

And you know how the saying goes...

Every Poet, just wants to be loved...

It seems as if every time I come home...shit hits the fan.

The world turning its back against me,

I mean "you said you couldn't wait to be a man"

Carolina side of mind

I feel like I'm trapped with no map

My mind is twisted insane.

There isn't day

I wanna fly away

My mind is congested

There is No DREAM!

Life Wraps its hand around my throat cutting off the THE Air

Supply my demand and kill the care.

I'm stuck between

right and wrong

Black and White

Real and Fiction

There is no depiction...

Of Reality's song...

My mind is racing

Thoughts submerged in The Devils nectar.

I hate thinking like this cause I slide into a depression,

Wait what's next? I'm having a head on collision with my thoughts,

It just gave me a concussion.

Congrats life, Mr. Poetics is back..

But why must I suffer to write the best,

Is it because I wanna be better than the rest?

Or maybe I'm on a highway of hell, so god care's about me less...

I'm so sick of struggle, I try my

Best to remain sane.

Trying to escape the lynch theory in my brain...

This is a heart to heart

I'm screaming LOVE IS THE ANSWER!

I'm a simple guy

Wanna make my mama proud,

But I feel I'm stuck inside this fantasy cloud.

I want everything to go right,

Despite my daily fight.

Retaliation is that 4-letter word

But I don't think that's the Key,

It'll just spark the born sinner in me.

I'm getting mad more

Way confused more.

Too concerned more.

Stressed is leading to the open door.

If Anger is the cousin of Hate

Then anxiety must be the baby of life.

Tension thick enough to cut with a knife.

I feel like a could go the easy route.

But it'll take me back 10 years clout.

Takes No BS

no time to pout.

A box is the only way out.

Riots, scream and shout.

No More real ones, it's a drought.

I'm boxed in

This holy pin

like Holyfield

All types of sin

Sin city

No sensitivity

Down and gritty

Takes no pity.

Waiting for the milly

It's New Years

But the same me.

So for your New Years resolution,

Would you like to stop pollution?

The pollution of hate, fear, brutality, greed and rape.

Captain save-a has retired.

Ripped up the cape.

So don't you know that I am

To Involved

To Installed

In this world

Ima Hurl

A baby girl

With the fruits of labor

F my neighbor

...I'm worth above my wager

Cause when I'm the king

I will sing

always bring

Peace, tran-quil-ity

I know he's the boss

But what about me!

Cause I'm the man

With the plan

To change the world

write the referral

Im against

the law

By law

And order

Read my message

Clear as water

Son of Jesus

Holy Father

Guide me to them pearly gates please.

Cause the world done made its landscape into a money tree!

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
