Let the Sky Speak

  
Sometimes you can’t resist that moment 

That feeling when the sky opens up And says to you everything will be ok

That I can get through the day notion 

That you can do anything feeling 

That I’m on top of the world appeal 

That it’s a healing moment 

Sometimes the sky talks 

You just have to look up and see it speak..

The Wait 

  
Tick tock 

Tick tock 

Slowly the time paces 

People move 

But motion of slow 

All just looking up 

At a board filled with destinations

Slowly moving up in a shuffle 

Heads and eyed follow 

For some 

these moments are about rest

For the travel holds content 

Books, ink , phones, and thought 

Tick tock 

Tick tock 

We grab our belongings 

Shuffle towards stairs 

Leading down a narrow path

Many push forward to gain a seat 

Close eyes to find more time to 

Tick tock….

A Drummers Hymn 

 

  •    

A drummers hymn will always bring life to you 

a drummers hymn will always bring life to you 

Listen to the beat as it resides in you 

Listen to your ancestors as they talk to you

A drummers hymn will always bring life into you 

A drummers hymn will always bring life into you 

Listen to the cry of children coming through 

Listen as your people make a war cries

They are crying 

Little girls are crying 

As they scream in anger still wondering why someone wanted to burn them behind church walls 

Listen as little boys cry out to you 

He wonders why they hung him when he did nothing special all

Listen to the drum 

Their spiritual is dance rides callus tips

Listen to the percussion as it is the little voices asking why 

Listen as its tap are little voices wondering why 

A drummers hymn will always bring life to you 

A drummers hymn will always bring life to you 

Listen to the beat as it resides in you 

Listen to your ancestors as they talk through you

Inspiration 

As ordinary as we are as people we never know how inspirational we can be to others. This young lady here has been an inspiration to me since I’ve known her a writer a philosopher and a fighter a poet a craftsman a parent using the power within to be her strength where in most situations people would fold. She always contains a smile and a word of encouragement even when the day seems as if it will show nothing but gloom. She is strength and continues to go above and beyond in her journey and for these reasons I celebrate your inspiration today. So my artist friends when you think you can’t always remember how she shows us what we can… 

  

Forgotten Humbles 

So I’ve been listening to “How Much a Dollar Cost” by Kendrick Lamar for over two weeks and my mind keeps going through states of images and seeing Reef the Lost Cauze with equal material. The understanding of what we see and do to one another for money and shun those without has a lot to say about us as humans. We spend so much time fighting to survive that the sight of the world becomes shark infested and we become blind to what we say and do because the story often takes moments back to it being about I but is it really…. 

 

New York State of Mind

“When you talk about a great actor, you’re not talking about Tom Cruise.”
Lauren Bacall

Every actors wants to be noticed for a great performance but truth is many think of having a horrible moment over actually doing well first. Funny thing about getting in front of an audience is they know whats good and whats bad in your performance. As many of the cast mates took to the stage at the Cool Stories Vol 1 Fest some were as nervous as me when we walked in and saw that we were actually in NY to show what we can do. From person to person i watched as they took the time to allow the presence to seep into each performance and allow the feat to become the lead into a moment where the crowd then saw what they can do. In the end, they received the claps the cheers and the bow that all actors great and amateur want total appreciation for what they do..
