Convincing Whom..

One of my blogs convinced me to blog
I had a respondent on one of my recent blogs say, they had wondered who I was trying to convince,
When I rambled and they had concluded, I was trying to convince me...
I am not sure if convince is the proper word,
But my blogs are surely therapeutic for me,
I will go through something,
See something,
Feel something,
Hear something,
And in order to have it make sense to me, I will blog about it,
I always did, it was just called journaling at that time...giggling...
So I am not sure if I am convincing myself,
But every single time I blog about something,
I am certainly reminding myself,
Trying to enlighten myself,
Keep myself straight,
And if in any way someone gets something from it,
To Quote Ice Cube, "It was a good day"

Love and Blessings,


I hear so many people say slavery is over,
Is it? And what I am talking about has nothing to do with Lincoln,
If you get your paycheck on Friday and most of it is gone by Monday on stuff like designer clothes,
Fancy restaurants and keeping up with what better paid friends have,
When necessary things are going unpaid,
You are a slave...
If you are living with your mama,
Allowing her to take care of your basic needs,
While you are underemployed and full-grown...
And not paying your child support,
You are a slave...
If you are lying beneath a man,
Who you don't love and who doesn't love you,
Because you are afraid to be alone,
If you are unable to go to the store for a loaf of bread,
Without being consumed with your appearance,
Well you get me...
And the most frightening thing about all of this,
Is that these messages are passed on to the children,
Which is why slavery never really ends,
If we teach our children that designer clothes,
Are more important than education,
Or allow our sons to live with us,
While driving overpriced cars and not paying rent,
Or sending messages to our daughters that if he ain't a baller,
Then don't let him become your caller,
We are not just slaves...
We are slave masters....
We better FREE....OURSELVES...
Lincoln is dead, and legislation can't help us with this one...
