Not all black people are gang bangers, not all white people believe in slavery, not all asian people want school on Saturdays, not all native Americans believe in spirits, never judge someone base off their skin color. Trust me when you get to know people you’ll see that racism is never ok.
The financial battle and unrest ended when he realised the fight for love was worth a lot more than the fight for money...

yesterday I was in search of love
today am in search of humanity only.
LIVING A DREAM I NEVER HAD
i woke up to a dark room i didn't recognize. i felt immediately that i was going to be attacked. i was shaking from fear and my heart was pounding in surround sound. as my eyes were adjusting to the obsidian room, i scurried to my feet and blindly searched for the door. as i found the knob i felt someone standing behind me. i quickly swung the door open and just as the light entered the room...i woke up, again. this time i was safe in bed. i was about 5 or 6 when i first had this dream and i've had it repeatedly over the years. tony (my brother) was about 6 or 7 and i remember thinking, as i sat there in bed, that if i could just see his face that i would be ok. ...
Yesterday I did something that took courage and bravery. Something that has been holding me back for the past 7 years. Something that I was finally able to give closure to.
I feel good. I feel better. It is not holding me back anymore. I feel like a part of me has healed. Besides, I gained back an important friendship that I lost a long time ago. To be honest, I missed it a lot. I... missed her a lot.
Her support means so much to me, and now that I know I have it I actually feel stronger. It is true that what people say about "the truth will set you free".
Try it. It feels phenomenal.
My advice for you this week will be the following:
If you lost someone due ...
Dear Mother Nature,
I did it. I held back the tears as the blood stained my panties this month. I keep telling myself that each month it will get easier. This month that I won’t be upset as I receive your gift. Others rejoice over it, shouldn’t I? There has to be a reason behind it. It’s just not the right time, I have so much to accomplish. I don’t understand though. My arms and heart ache. Please just stop.
A hill feels like a mountain,
A star feels like a sun.
The grass is green and sweeter,
than the passing of time allows.
So much blindness in youth, who would have thought
that this is who we are now.
If we learn to care for ourselves, then we just may be capable of caring for someone else.
Find your calm,
You're a good person, a good soul.
Sometimes when your actions are bad, those actions are not you. Those are actions that you will learn from.
Remember your actions may affect who you become but your bad actions are not you.
You're a good persoh, a good soul.
Every thing is at peace ! ! Feeling of neutrality is there ! There are no wrongs , no rights ! No one is good no one is bad ! You breathe the fresh air n think life is above the materialistic things! There’s something more than we imagine! You build up the connection with nature ! You love the morning bells of chirping birds!! You enjoy the sight of monkeys family ! You develop love for stray animals !! You feel so relaxed and living the life you wanted to live ! Thank you universe for ultimately giving the pleasure of life !!
All of these years I've completely understood that,
no matter what happens
I always end up loving my people.
that's real me!
I get peace that way and
I actually love to be like that.
This life includes pain and hatred but where is that love? You said love is real so where is it? I can't see it or am I just blind? Where is true peace you talked about? You said some day everyone will respect and love one another and live in harmony but is that peace really true?
Knowing is not the same as understanding.
Meeting is not the same as connecting.
Hearing is not the same as listening.
Feeling is not the same as expressing.
Seeing is not the same as observing.
Liking is not the same as loving.
Recovering is not the same as healing.
Breathing is not the same as living.
Silence is not the same as peace.
Know your words.
Know your actions.
Know your worth.
Know what you want.
Know who you want to be.
Be all you can be.
Be all you need others to be.
Throw away those self help books
Read the Greek Philosophers
Read Plato, Socrates, Aristotle
Zeno, Seneca and Epicurus
Study them closely
They spent their time
Considering what it means to be human.
And we have changed very little
Even though we think we are more advanced
Scientifically and technologically
We still share the same emotions,
Insecurities, fears and dreams
That all of our ancestors shared.
We are simply human after all!!!
Peace is all I want, and yet why do you run from me? I search and find you but then you are gone again. Peace please I need you know more than ever! I and the vessel calling out for you fill me with your everlasting self!
Fight with Mom
Today my mother and I got into a fight. For nearly a year now, I've been helping my mother in every way I can and oh boy did she take advantage of me. Between puppy sitting, apparently never cleaning after myself because the house is always a mess and it's never my mother's doing. HA! My mom is like a step or two down from a full out hoarder, with a few unusable rooms in our house. Well now the realtor wants the house presentable so instead of sitting on her ass for nearly a month she should've been getting the house ready, but no, she had to wait until the last minute and then, after helping all Saturday and baby sitting her puppies all Sunday, I'm sitting here upset becaus...
You believed in me n stood by me,
When, even self-love and faith on myself was devoid of me.
Hadn't you been with me,
I wouldn't have been the good and happy me.
I know I never opened up completely to you,
But destiny and time had other plans for me n you.
Slowly and steadily you crawled up to me,
And in no time it was no me and you, but we.
All the good and bad times spent together,
Made our friendship grow stronger and deeper.
To all those intellectual and crazy meaningless discussions ans so called 'difference of opinions',
To the all drinking together and nights full of getting into oblivion.
I wanted to quit and let it go so many times,
But you always holded me and never left my side....
Peace is forged by battles, bloodshed, war, deception yet its peace ...
So is the paradox of life ....

The first blood is a maelstrom of violence. I weep in to myself until my mother comes to hold me. She seems so happy to invite me in to her book club. Her errands become my errands so much that her children are my children.
I begin to shy away from my broad shoulders. I sink them behind my chest and start to cross my legs even when I am sleeping. My screams become quiet suggestions on curtain colors. I dip my wrists in lavender.
My daughter now is not my own. I did not birth her. She is bought with the work of my heart, paid for in lawyers’ fees. But still, I set a seat for her. I tell her of the book club, but I hope she learns—
The dramas are between the lines.
ISQH KI RAAH PAR
Chadh gya hai isqh tera iss kadar
Na rastay ka pata hai na manzil ki khabar
Hum to bas chale jaa rahay hai tere he bataye iss raah par hokay befikar..
Sambhal lena tum agar dagmaga jaye mere kadam,
Pahli baar chal raha iss kadar isqh ki raah par..!!
