2.16.10 - What Defines Me?
There has been a conversation wrapped around my last post Spinning, one of the more prominent questions that has risen out of this conversation has been, what defines us? Some say everything, some say only our choice at that very moment and some, well, they stay anonymous. So, let’s get to it, what defines me [us]? To answer this question very generally, I would say, “everything!”. To answer the...
2.15.10 - The Weight of Life
My life… My life is but flash, drastically shorter than the beautiful flowing tail of a shooting star and yet I must live like it matters. To some my life will be insignificant, to others its significance will be infinite. Regardless of what category I may fall in for you, I hope to live for you. Conception was not a biological option for my mother, until God decided differently and with...
2.12.10 - Spinning
I really like one word titles… I realized tonight that as this project progresses I am going to have to step up my game and really challenge my creativity or else we’ll all get bored. For tonight… we will stay on my general path of writing and I hope you enjoy it. The world is spinning and whether we choose to stand still or join the chaos, movement happens. Some would say,...
2.11.10 - Freestyle
Confidence is our playground and when our eyes are open to the fullness of the possibilities there is nothing that can keep us from playing! I did something tonight that I seriously NEVER thought I would be able to do. I was at a poetry slam, slash open mic and I performed a poem that I didn’t write down and don’t remember. L!FE gets a little crazy when the “i” in...
2.10.10 - Cold
The icey cold wall of stone that previously resided around my heart has been chizled away over the last couple years, slowly but surely. Although I enjoy my life of vulnerability, freedom and warmth, but there are times that I miss the comfort of the cold. There are times that I really know and believe that the way I live is the only way that I can and will remain healthy both emotionally and...
2.9.10 - Death
We either die to ourselves or we die due to our vices. Just spend some time pondering this.
2.8.10 - Audacious
“It’s better to be hated for who you are, than loved for who you are not.” I have no idea who said that, but I like it! i have experienced both of these and I have committed my life to being me regardless of the response that I get. During the process of this documentary I have really been faced with an opportunity to be true to this and it feels amazing! Be audacious. Be...
2.5.10 - Chains
Chains. We are bound by them. Restricted because of them. We’ve locked ourselves in them. We hold them. They can be broken. Once they are broken we need to run free. There are so many “chains” in our lives, whether that be we are addicted to a substance or feeling, we have been taken advantage of, we have been misplaced and neglected, we have been forced to silence, we have made...
2.4.10 - Without Fail
Love… & when you don’t have anymore to give, keep loving. Your heart was meant to take a beating, better to grant it freedom than hide it from the world. Thats all I have. Enjoy day 4. L!VELOVE
2.2.10 - Liars Die.
Breathing does not mean that you are alive in the same way that being alive does not mean that you are living. Desperate, we seek acceptance from every scum bag that surrounds us. Whether a dealer offering us our next hit or a pastor asking us for our last dime, we wear masks to hide the pain that floods our souls. Like the storm drain during a massive rain we fill up quickly and release slowly,...
