Letting go is the hardest thing you’ll ever do when you’re torn apart with a breaking heart. Fears trickle in to spaces of your mind you’ve never used for thinking. Moments of time replayed on the backs of eyelids blinking. Every picture, every show, every song is a reminder of a reminder of a reminder of what used to be us. Sitting on the shower floor is just… the only thing that makes sense. Tears get pushed down cheeks, lips and drains. Hearts bleed the pain of every emotion becoming detached from every memory that you don’t want to let go of. You are unchained.

Stand in love, don’t fall. Don’t let negative evolve. Stand in love, be strong. Listen to the heart’s song. Stand in love by me. We can do anything. Stand in love hand in hand. Walk side by side through this land. Stand in love, don’t fall.  Nothing too big, nothing too small. Stand in love with me forever and we will have it all.

Something in the way. See you though the crap. Something in his face. Just give him a slap. Temptations can be the downfall or they could be the start. Everything starts somewhere. Something’s tugging on his heart. Feel it when the wind blows. See you through the storm. See your little kindnesses that will keep him warm. He knows what he should do. She knows she’s right for you. She’ll see you through the darkness and guide you to the light. He’ll give in to your heart. It won’t even be a fight.

In a cage under heavy protection you beat. Over and over again. With the pain of my thoughts you beat. Over and over again. With the fear behind my smiles you beat. With the excitement of my anticipations. With the happiness of my love you beat. In my cage… in my skin. Over and over again. Playing the internal baseline of my life. Taking on all emotion with no worries. You are the only one I’ve got and I wouldn’t trade you for another.

All we are saying, is give peace a chance. Put up your signs and put up your hands. If Lennon were here would it all be the same? If Lennon were here would we be so insane? All he was saying was give peace a chance. Bombing our brothers was not in his plans. The words that he chanted were give peace a chance. Give peace… a chance. All we are saying is give peace a chance. If you give it a chance you might start a trend. Keep this thing movin’ and don’t let it end. The movement is needed and needed right now. Give peace a chance, give it right… now.

Stimulate Your Mind was carved back in the day. Found it again and gave it some paint. Gave it some paint and changed up the name. Stimulate Revamp, say it again. Stimulate Revamp may never get changed. Unless it gets bought, messed with in some way. I worked really hard with the tools that I used. I hope it’s enjoyed and never abused.

Standing quiet in nightmares haunting without sound. Words fall upon deaf ears, words fall to the ground… shatter. Pieces picked up, but never fit back together right. Open wounds on hearts fill buckets that get flushed down drains. Always were the sweetest thing. Sweetest thing leaves sweetest pain. Night flashes tap brain… waves. Wake up, it’s just the rain. Like tears, like puddles, like fears, like floods… evaporate with you into forever. Always were… the sweetest thing.

Some days we’re spinning, spinning… out of control. Feels like there’s no winning, winning… no letting go. Day turns to night turns to day turns to night. Go to bed, wake up again, again… get ready for the fight. Don’t want this nine to five no more, but times are getting tight. Just want to stay home and make, make… art for the rest of life. But it keeps spinning, spinning… out of control. It keeps spinning, spinning… no letting go.

When life gets me down I put it on and play it loud… Don’t Worry.  When my niece gets nervous, to calm her down she sings your song to lose her frown… Don’t Worry.  When my brother is bummed cause the sun is not out, he puts it on and clears the clouds… Don’t Worry.  If you are feeling sad, if you’ve got the blues, just put it on and he’ll sing to you… Don’t worry, about a thing. Cause every little thing, is gonna be alright…

A huge thanks goes out to Christian Gallego for letting me “steal” his idea. His Bob Marley caricature is the inspiration behind my painting.  You can see his caricature and more of his art at:  http://christiangallego.blogspot.com/p/2d-characters.html

Thank you again so much!!!

From this world to the next your spirit will live on. Just because you are not here does not mean you’re gone. Your laugh, your smile, your humor and your heart are forever burned into our minds. People that you’ve touched in this life know you’re one of a kind. We will cry, we will mourn, we will ask for reasons why. We will share stories and remember, we’ll be feeling you inside. Good times that we’ve shared will carry us through the days of pain. Forever shine your light down upon us until we meet again.

See you on the corner, just came off the bus. Usually pass right by without making a fuss. Something in the way the smoke swirls around your face could change the whole feeling of this place. Or maybe it’s the way you talk ending sentences with laughter. Or maybe it’s a mystery that will be solved after. Not really sure at all, it seems like it’s a joke. But there’s something that makes you pretty when you smoke.

Smiles exchanged from across the way turned into heartache and pain. Miss you like the summer on a winter day. Seems like yesterday when I didn’t even know your name. Danced into my life and it will never be the same. Be with me now, you have been from the start. Be with me now, listen to your heart. Don’t let it slip away, don’t let me wait in vain. Don’t let the beauty of your smile be the life behind my pain.

Gotta break free, gotta get away, gotta separate. News, media, violence on TV, too much hate. Kill in the name of your god and say that it’s fine. Car bomb, school shooting, what will it be next time? Two people in love can’t get married cause they are gay. Who are we to judge love and say what’s okay? Social media everyday all up in your face. No really thanks I don’t care what you ate today. Soldiers sent to protect this land for the government. Come back home, one less leg, on unemployment. Politician grants a favor looking in your eyes. Turn around take your money, spend it on his lies. Is this really what is meant by being civilized? If it is, then… you can count me out… No one hears our cries… Separate.

Sunflower power flower powered by the sun. Do a little dance and have a lot of fun. Wave your arms from side to side, wave your arms way up high.  Get your head out in the sky, move your body cuz it’s time. Flower dance now everyone. Flower dance now for the sun. Feel the rays touch you on your feet. Get you up out of your seat. Move your body to the beat. People dancin’ in the street. The time is here, the time is now. Tell the people in your town. Have some fun in the sun. Cuz this summer is almost done.

Take a piece of this peace. Spread a piece of this love. Learn the way of the rasta. Learn the way of above. Not all about dreadlocks ‘n’ smokin’ weed. More about brotherhood ‘n’  livin’ in harmony. Lend a hand when you can to help out your fellow man. It’s a part of the plan and with Jah we will stand. Lift me up hold me high keep my head up in the sky. Feel the love from above and guide me with his light. Give me strength give me life help me always to do right. Walk with me by my side he is there he’s a guide. Give a piece of this peace to share with the world. Take a piece of this love for every boy and girl. This is us we are here we can’t do this all alone. Take this peace and this love and spread it so they know. Rastaman vibration taking hold of my soul. Got this peace and this love and I won’t let go. Give a piece of this peace to you and a friend. Give a piece of this love spread it till the world’s end. Peace Love Rasta again and again…
