Train of Thought

As i sit here
beside the second floor window
it's 3:00 am and you have yet to fall asleep
the moonlight enters and like stage lights
head directly for you
Forward and backward we move
and i can't help but smile at your stubborness
He looks just like his daddy, they say
he acts just like him too i respond
and now
while it's just me and you
hearts beating as one, call of love
I give to you all my hopes for the future
devotion, passion, contentment
don't lose your zeal for all things you believe in
but don't let your obstinate nature render you unyielding
We fall hard
that is, when we fall
in all things including love
i hope that you inherit my sense of compassion, empathy
They say walk a mile in another man's shoes
i'm asking you to imagine never owning them
i imagine for the future, a young man
not afraid to stand for his ideals
knowing that his worth is more than what he makes
infinitely greater than what others may say
and although i don't know how much time we have left together
i hope that when this letter finds you in the future
you'll understand

not so random:train of thought

I believe in miracles
Where you from?
You sexy thing
I believe in miracles
Since you came along
You sexy thing

I've had hot chocolate only once.
Threw up and said
I'm never touching the shit again!!!!

nausea, heartburn, indigestion
upset stomache,
anybody else did the dance?

You know what would be digusting?
If someone had diarrhea and was throwing up at the same time
Wouldn't know which end goes

Do the ends justify the means?
Don't always know do we?
Sometimes you won't be able to figure the outcome until years later

I've always wondered if i'd be one of those youth participating in the sit-ins or taking bus rides down south to register black voters or marching with MLK jr.

I'd like to hope i would

I've participated in protests and marches but honestly, can't say if i'd head out to the streets if i thought i'd get hosed, beaten, or attacked by police dogs

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

“Never again.” was the cry
Nazi Germany


We sit back and watch the Darfur genocide.

Why the fuck are we just watching as history repeats itself????!!!!

What happened to 'not on my watch'???

I'm with you. I'd like to think that I'd be on of those freedom riders or protesters. Now that was gangsta.

Not on our watch
Never again
That's a bunch of bs. We live in a world of hypocrites. People don't want to change the world. They just want to put on the front like they care about what's going on. It's a better look than not outright caring.

Do the means justify the end?
