On the Fence

So you are saying I’m stubborn as a mule?! @#$^# Well, as it turns out, I’m okay with that–liberatingly okay with that.  Yes, I just made that a word–And don’t you argue with me!  Do you have a friend that knows you better than you know yourself?  I’m beyond amused when someone sheds new light on some trait that’s been carried around for years unbeknownst to its carrier, yours truly.  Besides stubbornness is not the worst thing one could be carrying around and not realizing it. Eep!  But I do consistently forget the depth of my own heels–probably because they’ve been dug in the ground for so long, I’m not sure where I end and the world starts.  That’s a fancy way of saying I’m opinionated and I won’t let YOU forget it.

Just today I had another episode of personality amnesia as I am calling it when I first heard Drake and Jamie Foxx’ new song, “Fall For Your Type”.  Initially, I was drawn to the title of the song–it hits a chord, a note if you will, with most of us habitual creatures of the night.  My opinion rang clear for that reason alone until I played the song.  Now one thing I DO know about myself is I can be brash when it comes to my opinions so I embraced my ambiguity. Know thyself and know thyself I did!  Those moments of uncommitted celebration were exactly what the song called for in order for it to call me.  Surprised by my own vacillation, I went back for more. Third go-round and my overworked eardrums finally surrendered and my opinions rushed back through my soul, returning to their deepest corners.

PLAY SONG HERE: Fall For Your Type

This song gets better the longer you do her–it’s my favorite kind of exhibited passion.  Slow to build, persistence and duration lead to the strongest emotions, the deepest loves, the most talented tortoises.  Bravo Foxx and Drake. You’ve reached my finish line and shown me another reason to appreciate myself and others.

This is why I love music. This is why music is art.  Art changes the willing. And God am I willing…

This post was inspired by an anonymous and very insightful friend of mine that I am happy to have met during my first few months in Massachusetts.

Gangsta’s Galaxy

Someday we’ll ALL be-be-be

With enough opportunity,

Someday you’ll see-see-see

It’s just them and me-me-me

In this gangster’s galaxy….

 

It’s emotional warfare,

Showing someone that I care,

My hormones are on a tear..

I’m painting all these cities red,

High speed chases with the feds,

Dosing self-prescribed meds,

I’m on my way to scene this play,

End this drama, make it all okay

I wish I might I wish I may,

Give me wishes, wishes every night,

Ease my soul’s dragging plight,

Every side’s tired of this fight.

Unlock my looming beast,

End those vamps’ evil feasts,

Last week’s minced meats…

Is this Coolio’s paradise?

 

Someday we’ll ALL be-be-be

With enough opportunity,

Someday you’ll see-see-see

It’s just them and me-me-me

In this gangster’s galaxy….

 

Now I hide my scars behind bars,

Prison made by them on Mars,

These guys will test and prod,

All obsessed with hot new rods,

But none of them have C.O.D.,

Cept a few men with the music,

Wayne, West, Jayz, n’ Ludacris,

Topping out rappers Forbes list,

Inspiring favorite local artists,

Tagging my heart like a fist

A fist in the chest,

marks on my breast,

a love unconfessed,

Weezy is a self-said alien,

But he’ll always be THE ill-ien,

Delivering me from shackles,

Feeding boys to the mackerels.

 

Someday we’ll ALL be-be-be

With enough opportunity,

Someday you’ll see-see-see

It’s just them and me-me-me

In this gangster’s galaxy….

 

BE SEECH ME BE SEECH ME,

I’l bring the skelton key,

open the door to be free,

No more borders, No more mortars,

Bring down this house of horrors,

Do you want just this or more?

Ask yourself. Cuz while you’ve been thugging,

I’ve been hugging, not out mugging.

Laying my head down to pray instead of slugging,

Until that day we’ll all be sleeping,

With the fishes, ‘stead of with your missus,

Save us from this planet, show you Venus,

We can escape these daily trials, just trust

Or who will be first in that hearse?

Let’s hold on and end the curse.

Hold my hand till each line blurs….

 

Someday we’ll ALL be-be-be

With enough opportunity,

Someday you’ll see-see-see

It’s just them and me-me-me

In this gangster’s galaxy….

 

Someday we’ll ALL be-be-be

With enough opportunity,

Someday you’ll see-see-see

It’s just you and me-me-me

In this gangster’s galaxy….
