Put on your happy face and appreciate what you’ve got this holiday season. There are people depending on you to be their rock. There are people who are much less fortunate than you. People who need help. People who are down on their luck. Volunteer, give to charity, be patient and show some respect for your brothers and sisters. We are all one family. Just face it, we are all part of this household… Earth. Lets work together to make it a better place.

Don’t let them die. Going to Northampton. Staring at lightning storms. Laying on the beach with the sun in our faces. Don’t let them die. Making art. Writing. Saturday morning coffees, medium-hazelnut-with-caramel swirl and cream. Don’t let them die. Laughing in bed so hard you start snorting. Traveling. Watching movies. Nothing can kill this. I know we won’t let them die. Pass them down and let them live. Pass them down and we will live forever.

Nothing strong enough to break this bond. Not the beauty of the snakes. Not a tropical place. Not time, not space. I run to you. I run to you because it is in me. Chosen roads of reincarnations past. I’ve done this before. I can see it in my dreams. Old souls always find their way back. I run to you. Nothing in lives passed ever tore us apart. Nothing in future lives will be the start… of our demise. I love you and that will never die. I run to you and I always know why.

First light. First sight. First time you open your eyes. First cry. First sounds. First deep breath and a sigh. First night. First day. First time we say your name… to you. First words. First steps. So many firsts left. First you must arrive for your firsts to come alive. First time we see you you’ll melt our hearts. First time will be first, but it won’t be the last. First just stay little, don’t grow up too fast.

Let it fall to the ground, down to the ground. Let it crumble. Let the emotions pour out, pour on to the ground. See the rubble. See the words on the page scream out loud, so loud. Try to say it yourself, to yourself, you would stumble. Watch the ground start to shake, feel it shake through your hands. See you tremble. Keep it bottled inside, inside let it fly, let it fly, fly out bumble bumble. All around us it will collapse. All around you it will collapse. All around me it will collapse. To the ground, watch it fall, let it fall and be humble.

From the footprints in the sand to walking a floor of water. Face the horizon and light up the morning sky. Bless the meek so that they may gain the strength they need to inherit the Earth. Some may go at it alone, but others will call upon you for your guidance. Be the voice of reason. Be everything we need and everything we will become. Be the beauty that surrounds. Be the light. Show us the way.

Walking outside in the cold grasp of a burning city. Claiming to be the second coming of Jesus Christ, she was screaming. There is more to life than this! There is more to life than this! Silence. Marching up and down the block like a rat in a cage she stopped when she came to each sidewalk’s end. Start counting. Not one, not two, not four, not five, not six. Three! Shrieking with the power of God flowing out of her face. Three! Three! Three! Then, like icicles fall from rooftops, her head fell off and floated away to be with the stars in the sky, in the galaxy… in the universe… in the heavens. Her body dropped. This is it for now. The city still burns… the city… still burns.

Marcus say sir Marcus say, red for the blood that flowed like the river. Marcus say sir Marcus say, green for the land Africa. Marcus say yellow for the gold that they stole. Marcus say, black for the people it was looted from.
They took us away captivity, captivity. Required from us a song right now man say repatriate, repatriate. I and I patience have now long time gone. Fathers mothers sons daughters everyone. Four hundred million strong. Ethiopia stretch forth her hand closer to God, we Africans closer to God we can. In our hearts is Mount Zion. Now you know seek the Lion. How can we sing in a strange land. Don’t want to sing in a strange land no. Liberation true democracy. One God, one aim, one destiny.

Three little words. I, love and you. Make someone’s day with I love you. Change someone’s life with I love you. Shape the course of history with I love you. I love you in the morning and when the night time comes. I love you in the moonlight and under the sun. I love you all of the time, so much it makes me weak. I love you… I love you, it’s so plain to see. I love, I love you.

Pulled up with a sense of urgency. Making the situation feel like an emergency.  But what I couldn’t see wasn’t hurting me. You telling me is actually you acting selfishly. Cuz if I didn’t know ‘n’ kept living normally. I’d still love you ‘n’ you’d still be coming home to me. But now I see thru the fields of your misery. I know that you ‘n’ me were never meant to be. Now I’m free to be who I am supposed to be. But the memory of you keeps on haunting me. Don’t know if this kind of freedom is the kind I thought I’d need. Can’t believe that you’re the one who did this to me. Can’t believe the color that my heart can bleed. Can’t believe we won’t be creating memories. Can’t believe… can’t believe you…

A darkness in your beauty. An innocence to your thoughts. Your heart taken for granted. For you it wasn’t just for fun. It wasn’t just a night in life. Meaning was there in the corner of your mind. Your heart fluttering as he walked out the door. Would it have been the same if you knew he was never coming back? Would you have given him another chance? Forgiven in your heart… he is sorry.

(Birch) Sisters get respect, birches get what they deserve. Sisters work hard, birches work your nerves. Sisters hold you down, birches hold you up. Sisters help you progress, birches will slow you up. Sisters cook up a meal, play their role with the kids. Birches in street with their nose in your biz. Sisters tell the truth, birches tell lies. Sisters drive cars, birches wanna ride. Sisters give-up the a**, birches give-up the a**. Sisters do it slow, birches do it fast. Sisters do their dirt outside of where they live. Birches have ni**as all up in your crib. Sisters tell you quick “you better check your homie”. Birches don’t give a f**k, they wanna check for your homie. Sisters love Jay cuz they know how ‘Hov is. I love my sisters, I don’t love no birch.  Bi(r)ches & Sisters ~ JAY Z

What are you guys looking at? Oh boy, I never thought I’d see one of those in person. Is it for real? Where did it come from? How did it get here? I have no clue, but it’s here. What should we do with it? What are you supposed to do with it? I’m not really sure, I’ve never used one before. Should we call someone? No, don’t call anyone. No one else should know about this. Oh boy, I don’t know. I don’t know if I can handle this. I gotta go…

All for peace, but only with love. Won’t get peace dropping bombs from above. It will not happen if in God’s name you kill. Stab a man, shoot a man, it’s your brother’s blood you spill. Peace isn’t something you can fight for. Peace isn’t something found by winning in war. Peace is found by the love from within. Love your brothers and your sisters and we all win. Peace is there to share in a song. Grab your friends hands and we’ll all sing along. All for peace, but only with love. Put your guns down and give someone a hug. Stop the fussin’ and fightin’ and give it all a rest. When peace is found through love it’s at its very best. All for peace, but only with love. FoR PeaCe WiTH LoVe!!!

Deep breaths struggle to mask panic dancing nerve endings. They just keep firing and firing. Breathe in… breathe out. Would it feel the same if she didn’t know what he was like? If she didn’t know what it could be like? Breathe in… She is going blind. Has it all, but looks for more. Going blind anticipating what’s in store, the possibilities. So tense it hurts her skin. Breathe out… Searching to find the stomach pains of the best kind. Ones that let you know you’re in love. Ones that make you feel hungry even though you just ate. Breathe in… But maybe there is something to the way things are. Breathe out… Maybe she doesn’t want the pains of love to ever go away. Breathe in… Maybe she’ll sit on this feeling because not knowing, the possibilities are endless. Breathe out…
