Poem 48: Like J Cole

Can we talk about Isis and Osiris
Capitalism? What life is
Love philosophically
How it’s the cure for everything

Or we can talk about Yeshua
You’re a
Beautiful soul like J Cole
Yes you are

Let the truth be told of old pharaohs
Do you believe life after death?
Or the energy dissolves
Til there’s nothing left

I’ll push your hips when it’s too deep

So you can see me
Feel what you’re saying
Taste the meaning
Traced lips while your speaking

About being hated
For being the one who made it
Why the federal reserve is outdated
Why it’s illegal to get faded

How we made it- thank Yeshua
For a
Beautiful soul like J Cole
Yes you are

Poem 46: Shake Off 2014

Country boy where are your people
Surely they didn’t leave you here with me dude
Holding my coat for a do si do
But watching my hips go round
Down and back making it clap
You’re on my side of town
Look but don’t touch
No not my butt
Silly man put me down
It’s all a bit much for the girl with the clutch
Pointing and staring me down
“He has a girlfriend!!”
Girlfriend, I see.
What’s that gotta do with me?
Not playing for keeps I’m just riding this beat
Shake it off like Taylor, missy

So much to shake off these days. Here’s some New Year’s fun poetry I hope you enjoyed it.

Music: Everything is Everything

I wrote a poetry piece after Trayvon Martin was murdered for those who were grieving him. This time, after Michael Brown’s murder, I didn’t write anything. Maybe I will one day. Now, nothing good could come from my own words. So enjoy this record entitled Everything is Everything by my favorite rap goddess ever Lauryn Hill, instead

Poem 44: Why I Will Fall in Love

Unpublished from Jan 2014

I’m going to dive head first
Into water or concrete
Thinking of only
The cool dip of my fingertips
Can’t imagine anything
But swimming
Forever on one breath of him- even

Wear white again
If it meant I could spend
My life with him

One of the Dopest Raps You’ve Never Heard

If you smiled all the way through this song, you might be a hip hop head- that is a connoisseur of hip hop music. I would like to pretend I was the first one to discover this if it didn’t already have as many hits, but chances are, you’ve never heard this little number. At least I’ve discovered it for you. This is the quintessential rap and hip hop head’s anthem by a new pair of artists local to me *coughs* that I just heard last night.

Enjoy

Read the latest Facebook only article on (feed on the right) about my new favorite things for more like this. Don’t you love it? C’mon they just said what you’ve been thinking. If song were a little but longer…

In Conclusion…

From “what I would say…”

If I had to conclude my journey with one last article, I would say:

When you are young, you know a lot of things you don’t understand. The difference between those two are so great that it feels like you don’t know. You start to question yourself, and with questions come mistrust of your judgement and what you know. With that mistrust comes a reliance on the reckonings of others. Until one day you journey back to understanding that the reckonings of others are for the benefit of others and living for others has left you wanting.

At the bottom of this journey is understanding that almost no one is really genuinely happy for you. No matter how hard they saw you struggle to achieve what you have or how they cheered you on or supported the spectacle of your becoming, these were lies to cover their belief that you would eventually give in or settle as they did or some perverse desire to minimize what you have as on some level less than what they have… They will not be happy for or satisfied with you so long as you have become more successful in any area than they have become. If you lean on the advice and persuasions of others, they will advise and nudge you into misery, poverty, and loneliness. Instead, trust and rely on God for everything. This is yet another thing you know but don’t understand until you really do, and the end of the journey here ends back to you.

I would thank you once more for reading my stuff. Of course it is all just beginning

Love,

Meka
