I got tight today. I’m walking home from playing ball and I see some scruffy ass dude damn near dragging a little girl while she is crying hysterically. First of all he was pulling her while cursing her out like she was a grown ass lady; saying things like “Shut the fuck up”, and “Keep crying and I’m gonna beat your ass”. Seeing that affected me more than I thought because all I could think about was how unfortunate the little girl was for growing up in that type of environment. Granted, I could have just witnessed him on a bad day, frustrated with everything, but that still is no excuse for treating her like that. The girl was no more than 4 years old getting cursed out and mistreated like an orphan. People wonder why kids grow up violent and bitter. It’s like a vicious cycle. People teach what they know, so if the only thing the little girl knows is cursing and violence then that’s how she is going to raise her kids and so on. There are so many other ways to discipline a child.
My mother raised me and my two siblings damn near on her own. All of our fathers are deadbeat bums that have more negative ways than positive. She showed us constant love while teaching us the necessary manners and knowledge to survive in the world. My mother is my idol, mentor, confidant, accountant, and advisor. So I could only hope that the little girl has a wonderful mother like I have. She needs someone positive in her life; preferably her mother because they are the most influential in a child’s life. We could mitigate the unfortunate cycle of violent behavior in our youth just by improving the way we raise them. It starts at home.
P.S…Shout outs to all the wonderful mothers out there and may God bless every child with one because they can improve the life of that child more than anyone will ever know. I LOVE YOU MOM!!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR LOVE!!!!

I consider myself an intellectual dude. I’m very observant to life and everything it encompasses. One facet of life and maybe the most important is human interaction. If you think about it, human interaction is what molds our culture and our way of life. Without me expressing my issues and you listening and vice versa, how can we evolve/improve as human beings? We can’t. My idea plus your idea equals society. If Jesus hadn’t come to spread the word of God, would we know about Him? Would we believe as much as we do? I don’t believe so. Therefore I ask as many questions as possible.
I have a few people whom I go to for thought provoking conversation (no need to name names). Out of these conversations, I pondered a question I would like to ask everyone reading this… What do we do? As black people, are we independent or are we governed by society? Do we dictate our future or are tricked into believing we are? Was it us that had the epiphany that going to college will promise us a wonderful and “happy” future? Or was it society that told us so? A conversation that I had with Francis made me think, do we live by the system, say fuck the system or actually fuck the system? Which one is Obama doing?
If we live by the system, then we must believe in it and feel guaranteed that it will make/keep us “happy”. As it states in the Declaration of Independence under “inalienable rights”, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” is what us as a people should have. I HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE HAPPY. Well people say that ignorance is bliss. So being involved in the system has the “potential” to make us happy but it does not guarantee this. I guess that’s why it states “the PURSUIT of Happiness”. So is Obama involved in the Plan for our Happiness. Is he “fucking” the system or is he merely saying “Fuck” the system? Taking a conspiracy theorist position, is the “System” letting him reach the lengths he has reached so that Us (black people) can feel better about the racism and discrimination we have faced and are still facing to this day. We say: America has to be improving to let a Black man have the chance to obtain the highest role in the American government. He has the ability to “control” the same government that said it was ok to have slaves at one point. He has to ability to “control” the government that created the Affirmative Action law. He has the ability to “control” the government that once said we were only 3/5 human. So is this just another ploy that the “System” has to keep us in check?
Are we Happy? Are we satisfied? Is this it? Is there no need for another Malcolm X now that Obama is here? Is there no need for another Martin Luther King, Jr. or Frederick Douglas?
Food for thought…. Let me know how you feel?

Ok Ok... This and "A Good Man" post are old and gives a lil insight on what was on my mind...
Why? Why are times so rough at this moment in time? Why do I feel the need to write out my thoughts and feelings on this computer just to keep my sanity? Why do I feel like I am missing something or missing out on something? Is there something missing? I feel like everything is crumbling but yet I cope with it by believing in God and knowing that everything happens for a reason. Everyone always talks about being independent and not needing anyone and all that stuff but I feel that having some special significant other can definitely lighten the stress that goes on in your life. I know relationships can be one of the most stressful things a person can go through but when you find that right one, she can not only console and support you but also give you an overall sense of love and appreciation. I’ve said numerous times that I hate relationships but yet I yearn to be with someone.
Can I have a woman without a relationship? Can I experience love and affection without going through the ups and downs of a relationship? Nah, that’s almost impossible. What I think, is that when that right woman comes around, then the relationship won’t be work. It will be a never-ending vacation. It will be a journey through my heart and hers that I am anxiously waiting on. It will be my safe haven when things get rough. It will be my spaceship and she will be my pilot to guide me and show me things that no one has seen or felt. It will be a great escape to a wonderful island that only her and I know about. It will be wonderful, perfect and gorgeous.
You want to know why our relationship will be all of these things? It’s because my woman will be a Phenomenal woman. Her touch will feel like Christmas morning. Her smile will make me forget about all of my problems. Everything about her, the good and the bad, will improve my being and produce the man God made me to be. I know this because God made it so we will be together. Me plus her equals heaven on earth. I sit here, single and somewhat alone because its not the right time. She and I need to be in the right state of mind to create this togetherness that no one else can duplicate. I want her. Sometimes I even think I need her, just to help me through life a little easier. I probably haven’t even met her yet but I know I will be more than willing to give her my everything so she can become my everything.

It’s crazy how advanced yet remedial technology is. I say remedial because like a lil kid, it can act dumb. I arrived at the Tech with every ambition on doing work, but my first social interaction was with someone telling me that starbucks was closed and the internet was down…..jack

What has being a Good man accomplished me?
I say she’s beautiful.
I hold the door open for her.
I text message her randomly just to see how she is doing.
I give back massages and foot rubs when she needs them.
I comfort her with every aspect of the word “cater” in mind.
I stop what I’m doing when she needs me.
I pray for her safety and her happiness.
But tell me something…..
Is what I’m doing not noticed?
Why can’t she get my subtle signs?
When I kiss her on the forehead it’s to let her know I’m here for her.
When I hold her hand while we talk,It’s to let her know that I’m listening.
When we hug and I don’t let go, it’s to let her know that I want her.
When I slip notes in her pocket, it’s to let her know that she means the world to me.
And when I stare into her eyes, it’s to let her know that I’m sad when she’s away.
I guess God must not see us together.
So what has being a Good man accomplished me……..
It gives me the comfort to know that a Great woman is just around the corner.

Yeah, so, this is the first of many I guess..... So I write a lot of randomness but everything makes sense for the most part. I'll start it off with something I wrote a few hours ago.
