Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.

Texas Toast Tuesday

So I woke up this morning and I was still in Texas.

Damn. I actually moved here. What the hell just happened? This time last week I was in Chicago freezing my ass off, contemplating my next move. Boy that happened quickly.

I still have the desire to be other places. I know in my heart that Texas is where I need to be now. You know, plant a seed or two and see if any other place'll take me. I still desire to be in Georgia, but there is a lot going on right here... In my mind. That whole editing phase looks like it'll take place right here in the lone star state. For a second I was tired of writing and searching for the right copy edit service, and then I pulled all of my stuff out to give it a once over.

Damn. I like writing.

Funny, I haven't been inspired to write new stuff as of late (meaning December thru February) and the new stuff that's been on my mind has a new slant, a new twist to it. I'm not ready to expose any of that stuff right now but I do have a piece I can share:

I now see you from the corners of my eyes
You exist in the shadows, lurking out of sight
I know you're there
You affect my thought on many occasions
your influence invokes change from within
I want to hate you for that but I cannot
Instead I amplify my abstract thought
embellish emotional senses of well being
or lack thereof
I admonish the blah and embrace my ultra creative
Releasing additional epithets of empathy for the boring
Tweaking more twists in my mind
I play with snippets of brainwaves to tease you
Hoping you would come out to rejoin the cognitive
and once again you'll be my muse
But you hide from me and I cannot accept that
Quit playing and bring that ass out...
Daddy needs to write more checks

I just made that up... Whatever. I hope this thing still works.

I really admire (envy) your ability to just get up and go. That kind of freedom is something to be treasured.
