In Memories of Trayvon Martin

I would love to think my death will not be for nothing. That is something that can’t be promised. So justice is blind; we all should get a fair trial. So I can’t complain when my memory is being treated like I was a criminal, while the perpetrator of the crime is getting a parade. So I should not be shocked when I’m looking down staring at some people throwing a riot to free my murderer. They say I’m guilty even though the evidence says otherwise. The only thing I might be guilty of; I wasn’t born with the right skin. I guess my family should stand by, mourn my death, and hope for karma. That is wishful thinking since the bible said God forgave the murderer.

…..Moving Forward (Part.2)

The love one we care for can’t promise us tomorrow, so can’t we. We need to show them affection, make them our person. When it happens at least we will have our head high; we will sleep knowing we had loved them. We will be able to turn our sadness into happiness. At their awake, we will reflect on the old times, when everything was simpler. When there was a lot to live for, they might be gone. You have to remember you’re still here, life hasn’t ended for you. Soon it will be your time to go, so mourn their lost, and snap back to go on living. That might be your only time you have!!!

You can do it, just take a deep breath and live life like it was your last.

Can’t Go Backward…. (part.1)

Tell me you love me now, don’t wait until I’m gone. Buy me flowers, I will show you my appreciation. I will thank you, but if I’m no longer breathing you won’t know how I feel. Cater to me! Tell me I’m special! When I laid to rest, showing your affection only matters for your own ego. Don’t treat me like trash, when I’m lifeless you’re wishing you had more time. The moment is now, seize today like it was my last. It could be. So put your anger aside and focus on what is really important! Just a little affection will make you smile, at least you know I’m gone knowing you did care. Now go on living for me, enjoy the things that are useless to me.

Black & White or Just Grey

This world is not black & white, I think it’s just gray! That would be another lie I told myself to over look people’s ignorance. I see people thinking they are so clever, but all I see is them stuck in their delusion making them act like they have no sense. They don’t stop and think; to see how their actions are hurting the shadow that stands next to them. Their stuck in their pride, not realizing all fruits taste different. Even apples come in more than one flavor. They look at you underneath their eyes, not gathering people could notice they are staring at you. Their acting like you have evil written on your forehead, they are the only one that seems to see it. Their screaming danger, thinking you can’t spot them pointing at you. I guess when your stuck on your own pride, you become to brainless to snap back to reality to realize there might be a chance there is more than one color than you were taught.
