Something New For Sunday Night

Good Peoples,

I've never done this before so in the spirit of 'theres-a-first-time-for-everything' here is a snippet of one of my poetical pursuits . . . a journal that I use to think and create and hope and dream and vent and a lot of other things . . . enjoy

Lyrically sell dreams like Dow Jones stock brokers
To those that this life has knocked over
To the bums junkies the thugs dummies and lawn smokers
To get they heads up like Abraham Lincolns in loafers
To get your hopes up instead of weed keeping them choked up
Shorties said they never knew what they was worth until I spoke up
Never knew they was allowed to blow up when they get older
Cuz all they see is mediocrity from us that’s grown up
That’s when I got choked up
As I recall gang signs getting thrown up
And Benjamin not ducking quick enough around that corner
17 and dead won’t live to grow no older
Never come out of that coma to go and get his diploma
Too many soldiers got pokered with pellets and folded
Without seeing the kicker way earlier than they were supposed to
A family is broken and another brother’s hearts colder
As a result of another adolescent’s gun smoking
These repetitive events have got my mind open
Got my eyes leaking and got my soul hoping and focused
On a time of blessing after this hocus pocus of famine and locust
Times I examine them closest like doctors with old folks its
Imperative that we get it right cuz it’s the last quarter
Devil’s out to make quotas with any soul that’s floating
So I’m hangin in the Gap fo ya like snaggle teeth and old posters
To expose imposters like spaghetti noodles I’ll show ya
Just because it start with a Jay don’t mean that he’s Hova
Just because he’s winning battles doesn’t mean that it’s over
The state of your soul is what this war’s going on for
Never ever could’ve seen eternal life until He showed up
Take heed and get you and your family’s house in order
Like a thief in the night He’s comin . . . the Real J Hova
Selah . . . now press rewind before the game’s over

So that's it . . . hope you enjoyed this little blurb of my notebook . . . Thank God for life, health, and strength as we get into another holiday season . . . act and spend like you know that we're in economically troubling times and love your neighbor as you love yourself . . . be better to yourself today than you were yesterday.

until next time y'all know what to do,

First Blog Post Since History Was Made


So by now the world has witnessed the election of the first President of color in the United States. At the time of my last post I was definitely a lot less upbeat about my American-ness but over the last week or so I have been feeling more and more like anything is possible. I need to be careful not to attribute these things to Barack Obama but to remind myself that the Lord's grace, mercy, and favor make nothing impossible for me (and for you as well). This refreshing sense of something (not sure exactly what to call it) has served to help motivate me for the last week or so . . . I've exercised a couple times, stayed at work past 5pm and done a lot of things that have me kind of scratching my head as I look back at it. Maybe I feel like my investment (hard work and long hours) can actually yield something in the future now that I have seen with my own eyes this very thing happen for someone else.


Not much to report under this word. I have been loving my pillow lately, enjoying sleep a lot more than I usually do for some reason. I am pretty sure it's because I have been putting out more energy (physical and mental) during the day . . . I've actually been dead tired when bedtime comes around hence the awesome times with the pillows and comforter. My love of reading is beginning to resurface as I am becoming more comfortable with being inquisitive on my job and in my thoughts and in my conversations with friends. I am loving the fact that the content for my first book is FINISHED and that my first idea for a start-up is steadily churning along . . . 2009 is going to be a good year, I'll tell you that right now.


The way people get excited about different things has been a very interesting case study in this election season. I've read a number of horrific stories having to do with a clash of opinion and the general inability to come to resolution in a civil and decent way. I have begun to think about what it would take to take certain people from immersion in indoctrination (in you name it) to a place of willingness to listen to (and maybe even learn something) another point of view. We have heard about the true genius of America in a couple of Barack Obama's speeches, but I would like to add that some of its genius will come from its citizens' diversity of thought and expression . . . we used to be (maybe we still are) the hub of innovation that all countries looked to and patterned themselves after . . . I hope the next four years take us back to that as we embark on a case study of what a diverse nation of people can do when enough of them commit to a 'change for the better' a 'change for the betterment of our children' a 'change we can believe in but also be a part of' and a 'change that we no one saw coming' . . . are y'all ready for that? I am.

that's all for now . . . God bless and I'll be back soon

til then you know what to do
