I don’t run with crowds; though many need them.
If you fall in their midst; you may not succeed them.
What If I rebel; would I be freed then?
I’d die on the vine, if I were to believe them.
They tried to change me; called me a weakling.
Nor for courage or support, did I ever seek them.
They took me to the gates so they could stone me.
But I opened my heart and made them look phony.
They then realized they’d never own me.
My reaction to their fears was as though they’d never shown me.
I walk a narrow road; though it be stony.
Although I go alone, I’m far from lonely.
I don’t run with crowds: I know where I’m going.
I lead them; where faith is showing. - Akil Johnson of Lies I Never Quite Believed

I want to weep and jump for joy at the same time. It’s hard to be here and not feel the depravity & triumph of the time. April 4th was the anniversary of MLK’s assassination, a day when he truly gave it all for what he believed in and in doing so made humanity better.

Prize yourself and stop tearing yourself down. Build on your strengths and your weaknesses will come around. Lastly act and think in ways that make you like yourself better. After all it is only through love can we see ourselves properly as well as each other.

Once you decide who you want to be in the world, you a have to make peace with the fact that there are certain things your very presence will not allow.

They’ll make room!

I’m sure people ask you how is (insert wherever you live) all the time. I hate to get into discussions about pros & cons of locations. Find freedom within your situation, wherever you are let your life be a celebration. Make of your mind a place that represents the heaven that you seek. So that when you look at life it will no longer look so bleak.

If you want peace, live peacefully. If you want love, learn how to love. If you want to be brave, live authentically. If you never want to be lonely, learn how to enjoy your own company. If you want to be happy, say no to misery. You can’t live in a truth you don’t believe in. If you don’t love your life, you are the reason.
