Money and Violence is the name of the webseries and I must admit i was hooked by the second episode. Its filmed in NewYork City with one camera. All of the actors aren't actually actors but they pull it off and you will be waiting for season 2. I wish Netflix hurry and gives them a deal so they can really do their thing. $
Life On The Go
Soo Hello All,
It's been wayyyyyy too long since I last posted and for the wait I do apologize!!!
I want to talk about a serious matter that affects more than 54 million people over the globe. There are people from every color and race being Domestically, Mentally, Verbally, Emotionally and Sexually abused. Only 22% percent of Domestic crimes are being reported, which rounds in at 1 in 3 Women and 1 in 7 Men. According to a survey women are way more than likely to be victims of sexual abuse, which rounds out to 78% of women and 22% of men. And this might not be surprising, but most of the perpetrators committing these acts of violence are MEN who may be a spouse through marriage or dating, a relative, a friend of your family, you may know this person through work and school, or a complete stranger who's only motive in being friendly or gaining your trust is to attack!!
For me personally I have relatives and i've met many people through the years who have either experienced this type of traumatic situation or who's also akin to a victim. It not only saddens me, but it really hurts even more when there are children involved who grow up watching or becoming a victim themselves. Now if you're wondering what does this topic have to do with my category..let me just say that it has alot to do with it on so many levels. There are many Women who confuse these acts of violence with Love..Yess I said it and I know you all know what i'm talking about!! But, I have one question..when you look up the meaning of Love in the dictionary, where do you see Pain, Tears, Hurt, and Shame listed?? Exactly..my point may be coming across now!!! Let's not forget about some of these Ladies who abuse their spouses, because I know for a fact that there are a few of you out there!
The numbers above really don't hold a candle to the crimes not being reported due to Fear, Death or Embarrasment...why do we make excuses or dust it under a rug when it affects Generations of families!!
I thank you and look forward to any comments that you may have on this subject!!!
The most prevalent theme in the news these last few days to me is mental illness, although it is not always apparent in the content which it is reported.
The kind of mental illness that causes someone to desire his child sexually, kill her mother and kidnap her so that he can have her to himself.
The kind of mental illness that drives someone to hide Doctor's notes and get in the cockpit of an airplane, flying it into the side of a mountain, killing himself and 150 people.
The kind of mental illness that compels a mother to cut off the head of her 3 month old daughter.
The kind that pushes a mother to brutally abuse her four children all of their life and ultimately kill two of them.
There seem to be no measures in place that can circumvent these tragedies, or ways that they can be prevented. In cases where these individuals had been diagnosed and were being treated, Doctors were hindered by doctor-patient confidentiality and in most cases no diagnosis had been made prior to these unspeakable acts.
Incredibly, no one close to these individuals knew what they were going through or what they were capable of.
As a child, the only memories I have of mental illness, are the family whispers of an uncle who returned from Vietnam crazy and of an aunt's best friend's husband who suddenly became violent and eventually was stabbed to death in a bar fight. It wasn't until I was an adult that I reflected on depression versus clinical depression or bi-polar disorder versus melancholy, and I realized so many close to me were afflicted.
Although still a taboo subject, social media keeps the spotlight on this with so many celebrities publicly battling their demons. Artists like Charles Hamilton who had a complete breakdown, losing everything, is now conquering his depression and getting a second chance. Television shows like Empire that showcase a powerful highly intelligent yet flawed person with bi-polar disorder keep us deliberating on something so close to home to so many of us.
Keeping the discussion about mental illness going is what we have to do because nothing will change until the medical industry can reach out to employers and law enforcement to amend policy to deal with the under and mis-diagnosis, the over medication and the inability to advise those who can be potentially and horrifically affected.
OLD SCHOOL SOUND
His braids are gangsta
But his mind is intellectual
His eyes are low and soft
But his brain is so perceptual
His skin is young, those lips are smooth
And his tone is laid back, calm
But his back is wide & his hands are good
& his heart is full & strong
He bops that ol G bop, like f*** with me
He talks that 90's talk, like come get me
His neo soul is home grown, like a thousand years old
& his hard core hip hop speaks original knowledge gone cold
Next to me, he's hot as the equator
Even in this winter weather, his warmth is always greater
Logic vs. Impulse, like land after the crater
We don't have no time to think, we on our 2pac & Jada
To Be Continued...
AND CYPHER ?!
Musicologists & Poets The Same
I've been thinking about my son lately
My precious little baby
His ten little fingers and his ten little toes
His eyelids closed and his tiny button nose
I hope he forgives me for not doing better
I hope he hears all of Mommy's love letters
My Lawrence, watch over me & never forget
I love you, I wish you could see when we met
But God had better plans for you
He needed you more than I do
I didn't always understand
But I know you're special and there's a plan
So from where you are, baby hold my hand
Root for me to make it back
& hopefully Mommy can hold you again
& have my boy, my little angel back
I've been contemplating what my first post was going to be for a few days and I knew I wanted to use this venue to discuss issues in the news that affect us daily whether or not we watch, read or think about what's going on around us.
Ironically, in the news would this very personal entry derive because another black man was killed on another Friday night in America.
This black man however I knew personally. He called himself Black. And he was my friend.
And all I can think is the news doesn't know who he really was.
The news is never going to tell you that he walked my son to the bus stop for me every morning so I wouldn't be late for work. Or that he carried my laundry back and forth from the laundry room because he was simply being a gentleman. Or that I never felt afraid of where I lived when he was around. Or that all the children in the neighborhood knew they could play outside unafraid because Black would never stand by to them bullying or fighting each other. The news will never tell you how he stood up to a pedophile when the little girls mother wouldn't and made that pedophile feel he'd be safer in jail so he turned himself in.
They will never say he aspired to be a Boxer and was his own worst critic. Or that he could debate a topic for hours. And that he was a self-proclaimed ladies man before he was even really a man.
Sadly all the news will read is that another black man was killed more than likely at the hands of another black man. They may say it involved drugs, or alcohol or gangs but ultimately it involves our black men having to live in a world that positions them from birth to fight a losing battle to grow old.
Soo Hello ALL,
I wanted to spice it up just a little for my first actual post...hopefully you will enjoy this heat :)...I wanted to start on 'Pain' and not really the type that will cause tears to flow, but then again you may like that lol!!
When the feeling of Pain first comes to mind...some of you may think of tears, heartbreak, sorrow and/or bruises, but what about that sensation even though in some ways to others it may be wrong, there's a certain pain that keeps you on that edge!!
For now I wanna talk about Pain in regards to 'SEX'..now before those side eyes and looks of confusion come on..let me just say that I know plenty of women who like that feeling of Pain during that intimate moment of bliss..or maybe for some it's just a one night stand..who knows!! From what I have heard and personally experienced..there's something about an ass slap that yess you hated as a child, but somewhere in our later years that same cause and affect....gets you going everytime!!
There are some that like their hair pulled, getting choked, or to be shoved on the bed of course ...but mainly it's the Pain from the actual act itself that some will say can keep them coming back. You know the saying, "she can't take the D" lol...not these women...they are definitely up for that challenge...hell they're even hoping that you are a challenge that they've been waiting to overcome lol ;)!!
For me personally..I have received some of my most intense orgasms through feeling Pain...does that mean that my partner was rough, no not necessarily...it could've been a time when I didn't want to be Submissive..so getting on top meant I was just going to say 'forget that'..I'm taking this lol!! Or on the flip side when he pins me down...and I with a feeling of excitment and being pure in that moment just oblidge..which in most cases benefits us both in more ways than one!!!
I hope that you enjoyed the begining of this topic..but I surely will come back to this subject of Pain that although may hurt at first..it can also draw that focus to tap you into a part of yourself that's just waiting to be discovered!!!
Soo hello all,
I hope your week is going great..I must say mine just got a little more interesting with making this blog...and although the category I picked sounds cliche' or cheesy...I honestly couldn't have decided on another that would fully describe the various topics that I want to touch on!! Love, Sex and Pain is something that alot of us either have experienced for just a moment or maybe even longer...those three feelings can be fun, enjoyable or highly avoided depending on you as a person!! There's absolutely no way I could sum up each with just one word...they can all be exciting on one end or completely life damaging depending on experiences that may have come with them or lack of being present in that Moment!!
This is just a peak of what's to come...literally lol!!
Her tastes are eclectic
Her voice is electric
Perfected by her eccentricities
Made intriguing by her expressive felicities
Of language predicated on her very own life complexities
Effectively, affecting these
The hearts of many, whether positive or negatively
She exceeds her expectations, succeeds her force of entry
She makes movements over plenty
A lyrical gentry
Addicting, unable to steer clear the sentry
Trouble, calling her to save
A sweet, dysfunctional crave
Lavi, a young lion's mane
From purr to growls proclaim
A slow, smooth, gentle brush
Turned loud roar, igniting rush
*Deep Breaths* It's almost like instrumentals brought to life, sound made to words, heartbeats, smiles and tears brought to understanding. How simply someone's verses can take you to a place that once was or to a place you've never set foot. It's funny how something spoken in the middle of silence can make you bop your head and tap your feet or grab at your chest in awe and snap your fingers. Know me, feel me, walk with me without even sharing a cup of coffee or a shot of jack. I'm excited to meet you too, share with me your poetry...
Motives and Thoughts by Lauryn Hill
Rotating bodies, confusion of sound
Negative imagery, holding us down
Social delusion, clearly constructed
Human condition, morals corrupted
Trapped in reaction, lawlessness, war
Dissatisfaction from bowels to core
Devil's technology, strategy for
Human mythologies, urban folklore
Sick of psychology, counterfeit cure
Wicked theology, robbing the poor
Scheme demonology mislead the pure
Strictly strategically studying war
Light shown in darkness, image exposed
Few can see through the new emperor's clothes
Lustful this hustle turn humans to hoes
When the blind lead the blind, just more trouble and woes
It's the mind that they chose
Its designed to stay closed
Standard of jokers, court jester a logic
Sick looking cosmics, from schoolyards to college
Primitive man with civilized knowledge
System collapse and he still won't acknowledge
God is the saviour, studies behavior
Trying to fix the mix mind that he gave ya
Stiff-necked scholars on prescription meds
Wishing their problems were all in their heads
Moral dilemma, pride is the root
Misguided from youth, heart divided from truth
Egyptians and Grecians, spiritually dead
Imperially led, by the gods in their heads
Motives and thoughts
Global economy, in it for self
Heart full of madness, covered with kind
Pleasure designed to take over your mind
Furnished in godliness, painted in good
This tainted priesthood got real saints misunderstood
While classes in government, set up the veil
And cultivate minds for more mythical tales
Typical Hollywood follies good girl
While vice and corruption take over the world
Motives and thoughts
Check your motives and thoughts
Blind with the wickedness, deep in your heart
Modern day wickedness is all you've been taught
Lied to your neighbors, so you get ahead
Modern day trickery is all you've been fed
Motives and thoughts
Check your motives and thoughts
Shout out to Young Money Yawn for this track and video. Great concept this will be on repeat for awhile.We all have to admit that we have been in this situation at one time or another. Ive found myself in this situation more recently than you might thank.
No longer settling because I'm no longer questioning, my soulmate's existance,
She once held me tight with persistence,
Now I see her in the distance,
The body of a goddess
The complexion of a princess
Deeply my eyes gazed upon her natural beauty,
Her rare essence placed me in an everlasting trance.
Day dreaming of our past,
wishing it was the present,
striving for the future,
I shall change our fate,
take control of our destiny,
Would she be mine?
Could she be mine?
She said the fatal "no" and said I did this to me,
Yes I still think God for such memories,
the soft kisses on the hollow point of my neck,
the tenderness of lips on my chest,
it was never just sex,
passion ignited by the flesh,
that shall no longer lay dormant,
it shall awaken like a phoenix,
suddenly, meager representations dont measure up,
and will never be compared,
to our present and future,
or will it just remain the past?
God I pray, but for what?
if someone could right a response that would be nice.. maybe i'll be a able to keep it going. such as a cypha of poetry..
