I Am Not Perfect *****

In Hip Hop, Poetry on October 3, 2011 at 7:15 pm

Today I was hanging out with some friends and they use the N word so casually. It has become such a norm for black people in society, we just regard it as an ordinary word. We consistently hear rappers use the N word in the music scene. I am one of those teenagers that if I hear a good song and I somehow remember the lyrics, I would rap every curse word, N word and other abusive language.   That is when I am alone in my room, but never in public. I am not perfect! I personally don’t have a problem with the word. Usually, it is just people who have passion for their lyrics who use the word and other times people just acting like they lack intelligence and are stupid. I will also say that they should not abuse it even though the colour of their skin and history gives them a slight legitimate reason for its common use in their speech. We should understand the roots of black history while at the same time, aim to make change. That may indeed mean all people stop using it altogether!

A poem from Julian Curry on the subject ‘Niggas!’

Is it really just an ordinary word? What do you think about the use of the word?

Soya Milk

I seriously love soya milk,

Soya milk you are so lovely,

More lovely than semi and whole,

Lots of flavour,

Soya, I love!

Present Time

In Poetry on August 3, 2011 at 5:17 pm

This present time I really wonder on my thoughts,
I wonder like the curious black boy who craves knowledge beyond what the eye can see,
My imagination becomes a natural flood which pounds the water bank,
As I wait for the present time to kick me in the butt,
I stop looking back,
And stop wishing,
It is then I am at peace.

Then life is stunningly beautiful,
Beautiful enough to stand in motion and let life turn and tumble,
Present time, I love with an everlasting passion.
