Happiness (So Dangerous)

Posted by | Film/Video, Poetry | No Comments

Happiness is so dangerous…because what happens when it stops?

 

It can hit you like a car crash or a face smash

And you drop off a cliff

Into an abyss

A dark well of depression

Can just set in

Like a fog or a mist

Because you now know what youve missed

You’ve gone from pure bliss

To being pissed

Because I remember those times

When I reached heights unimagined

Like I’d never believed

Emotionally on the top of Mount Kilimanjaro … Feeling the breeze

Walks along sandy beaches

Looking out at sunsets and the beautiful seas

But those moments have a flip side

The come down

And it’s hard to stay balanced

And resist the poisoned chalice

When the pendulums swinging

And your holding on for dear life

You only care that your winning

You have all your ducks in a row

Keep hitting free throw after free throw

Everything’s unlimited

When your convinced

Your an unstoppable force

You can walk on water

Your the boss

And you never have to count the cost

Of a loss

 

Happiness can be so dangerous…because what happens when it stops?

 

For a moment

Life is everything life could want to be

It’s grinning from ear to ear

It’s skipping through forests far and near

It’s joy unparalleled its days that never end

It’s connections so heartfelt

That make your heart melt

Before reality hits

And you start to think

Maybe it’s better not to get so caught up in this

But then you’d never experience the joys and the ups of the ups

They can be ever so fleeting

and i never want to look at the world in a defeating way

Deflating times

Delay your life lines

Drawn out in parallels

Mountains valleys crossed

Love won and lost

That is what creates the human being

That you are seeing in front of you

The seething

Emotional volcano spews forth

Rattled, reminiscent reticent, well all the Arrrgghss you can imagine

Living, breathing, wishing, hoping, the next time it’s more stable

Because Happiness isn’t a fable told in stories or books

It’s real, it exists, it’s bliss, it’s simplicity, it’s trust and understanding

Happiness is a beautiful part of life however it looks

It can be jaded mass created greatness..subtle or just pure elation but in the end

The most important thing to remember

It’s ultimately you who creates it

And like the salt

Of the earth

It has worth

And when it’s birthed

I hope this contagious infectious happiness disease is something you find

I just need to remember…not to get so caught up next time.

 

Ive Always had a devotion to happiness

But it’s an unstable emotion

It’s an intoxicating potion

An elixir to fix ya

It can cure all your ails

Once it sets sail

And you fail

It’s time to bail

Because The higher you reach the greater you fall

And they say falls make you stronger but sometimes they just don’t.

 

Is it better to feel nothing than happiness and sadness

Can’t wipe the smile of your face

The Light

Posted by | Film/Video, Poetry | No Comments

Allowed to strike/ turned darkness to light
Uplift and take flight/ turn wrongs into right/
Self belief/selfless indeed
proceed to take heed/ & achieve good deeds /

While others continue/ on the daily grind (boring)
I’m wrestling with deeper/ thoughts of the mind (thinking)
I’m a great thinker/ who instinctively lingers (hmm)
on matters of life/ and our very existence
I wrote this to kill it/I know that I’m different (since day 1)
If you notice I live it/these words my resilience (fighting)
it’s a peaceful resistance/enlisting persistence
to reach/ dreams in the distance (stay dreamin)
because life is /just one instance (make it count)
Climbing a mountain /takes gradual steps (baby steps)
Finding your feet /don’t drop to your death
keep myself in good health/stay up not down
And my footprints imprints/ only solid ground
got a spring in my step/a hop in my leap (woo)
the limp of a pimp/my swagga so deep (hah)

I’ve sowed all the seeds/now it’s my time to reap
bleeding light I receive/darkness retrieved/(retrieve
removing the weeds/and leave behind seeds/
that flower and bloom/find light and consume/
this earth don’t assume/i haven’t made room
for dreams thats achieved/ it’s wants vs needs(uh huh)
It’s you vs me /It’s trapped vs free/(your choice)
It’s living lovely with the bubbly attitude
It’s friends and family/ it’s nothing but gratitude
Surround yourself with greatness/if you want to be great(do it)
influencing those around you/with positive mind state
It ain’t blind faith/ if you see the results(Yup)
Seen it too many times/ it’s as constant as pulse(beep/beep)
town to town/It’s my form of expression(rappin)
It’s my thoughts wrapped up/ as a valuable lesson
life can’t be life/ unless it’s constantly testing
But we’ve got each other/ spread love raise your blessings

I’m feeding off/ my friends energy(feelin it)
and attempting to create/ a synergy (zzz)
Music is so/ intrinsically/ (uh ha)
part of me/ and my memories (ahhh)
Every song and composition/Every note that plays I’m living
its like creating a soundtrack to my visions/ (perfect)Dropping me back/ to that a moment in time

where positive vibes/ are the lifeline
Cause I know that joy/ and I know that sound
from the underground/ my  smile is bound
To my favourite song in my playlist (most played)
and thats what inspires me to make this
if you want to feel my joy/then play this
It enlivens my spirit/I hope that you rate this
my soul is shining and i’m bringing the realest (bring it)
its all silver lining and its love if you feel this

Allowed to strike/ turned darkness to light
Uplift and take flight/ turn wrongs into right/
Self belief/selfless indeed
proceed to take heed/ & achieve good deeds /

The Art of You

Posted by | Poetry | No Comments

The greatest enemy/ that we will ever face (yeah?)
Is ourselves/and that’s the base
of human existence/battle hardened warriors (wicha)
lose in an instance/ turned to emotional worriers
trauma begins/our mind masturbates
no understanding/and explanations fabricate
elaborate/on myths generating hate
that we create/misunderstandings complicate (complicated)
relationships/broken from problems so lightweight
the mastery of the mind/removes these issues off our plate (gone)
dastardly deeds/ keep em moving just like freight
spend your time dealing in the real/ not the fake
weighed down the nonexistent/drama creeps around
break down emotional frowns/flipped upside down
take sound advice from friends/and family in your life
but ultimately only you/can manage strain and strife
Pain can hurt you for years/or it can hurt you for seconds
That’s why your own mind/is such a powerful weapon
It can bring you to tears/but it’s all between the ears
Strict training and discipline/and you rid all your fears
So create joy within/and forget about the hating (forget it)
because you never face you’re demons/if you don’t create them
I’m immune to emotional self harm/I create higher living
My mind can overcome/and so can anyone else that’s willing

Its not the art of war like sun tzu
Its the art of you so run through
Are you willing to rattle yourself for mental wealth
Are you willing to battle self for mental health

If you are mentally strong/ you overcome obstacles (overcome)
It’s what’s deep within/that gives light to oracles
The onus is on you/for what happens on this earth
Our paths are chosen by ourselves/from the moment of birth
Be aware of your surroundings/ and Control your emotions/
If you start with solid grounding/you avoid all commotions
Some people need to create drama/to draw the attention
The true art of zen needs nada/knowledge is retention
Valuable life lessons/self awareness and reflection
Its true that what is known/never has to be mentioned
Create your own happiness/ and you never have to be fed
Instead of self destruction/choose your better self instead

Its not the art of war like sun tzu
Its the art of you so run through
Are you willing to rattle yourself for mental wealth
Are you willing to battle self for mental health
that which creates harmony/ is truly at peace (peace yall)
attack the hardened artery/melt the deep freeze (melt it)
Relax, and be water/then you will be released
for that’s our true armoury/the ability to be at ease
Tranquillity is a state/we all wish to reach/
it’s so simple to attain/there’s no need to preach (no need)
It’s a stable environment/it’s how you use your eyes (use em)
View different angles/use context see truth and lies
Maybe All these ideas/have already been said
From my perspective/it’s from guys already dead
It’s my DNA strand/that creates a positive plan
and hey not every individual/hypothesizes on man

Its not the art of war like sun tzu
Its the art of you so run through
Are you willing to rattle yourself for mental wealth
Are you willing to battle self for mental health

Its not the art of war like sun tzu
Its the art of you so run through
Are you willing to rattle yourself for mental wealth
Are you willing to battle self for mental health

Like Me

I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow, and the empty

A moment in the spotlight or limelight
forget about celebrities I’m the number one highlight
You can follow my life my every thought, every movement
so focused on broadcasting we lost sight of self improvement
See if you give everyone a soapbox then who is left to listen?
It’s just everybody yelling shouting for attention
If I lend you my mouth but forget about my ear
You’ll just keep shouting to the world but never stop to hear
And let me give you this small piece of advice
If you spend a lot of time listening you learn a lot about life
but is that asking too much in a narcissistic society
where people only think “please will you reply to me”
every status update has to be as important as the next
don’t want to be left hanging like waiting for a text?
yeah its pretty obvious what everyone wants
validation with that quick response
10 or 15 likes maybe 4 or 5 new subscribers
Stuck on an island of digital YouTube survivors
All fighting for the same thing – somebody to like us
I’m anxiously waiting for that phone to sing
to blow up and show up that notification ring
before my own insecurities succumb to this plague
every minute I’m connected minutes turn to days
until I can feel assuaged by your praise
It’s become like a heroin fix
I need more & more to calm me its a digital hit
I want all eyes on me
I need your attention
go straight to my online friends if i ever got a question
Jack, Jill & Johnny & umm who are you again?
See now the technology controls us..and we can’t go without it
So you say you will leave you will quit but for real we all doubt it
It’s just another cry the craving of attention
Hoping for those replies cause man I need those mentions
Talk to me please, hear me when I tweet,
like all my photos of the food that I eat
and this right here goes out to all my twitter peeps

I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow and the empty

This whole social media craze..
Has got everyone hoping for that social media gaze
It’s like we are all moths circling the same flame
ego so desperate for you to know my name
It’s now a level playing field and we are all playing the same game
Self obsessed with self put it in a frame
I hope you like me, retweet me, follow me, friend me
I represent the vapid, the hollow and the empty

Everything I got

Posted by | Film/Video, Poetry | No Comments

I put everything I got/my essence my being

to these words that I speak/ to these thoughts that I think

every syllable comes from my soul/

every part of me that makes me feel whole

 

I’m starting to understand /the power of my words

Back when I was in grade 4/conjugating verbs

A lover of language/Intelligence that led to anguish

But Reading books every day/helped me on my way

There are so many things/that can be done with my speech

So i keep rearranging the lines/til  the puzzle truly speaks

The story that I’m telling/is understanding and reasoning

The same words moved around/to generate different meanings

No matter how fast we run/time is what we face

Clear thought is/the space between time and space

and I’m needing time for space/to rejuvenate

creativity keeps my spirit alive/in this place

I’d rather write and give life/than run the rat race

when someone feels what you say/it’s such a beautiful taste

of reassurance and acceptance/my talent can’t go to waste

I can’t afford/to waste precious seconds in haste

 

I’m timing beats/ words and rhymes

I’m forming structures/words and lines

I’m forming life/ lines/

that cross and intersect lives

 

A few simple words/can make someone feel real special

and with that acquired knowledge/I keep my head level

the discipline I’ve practiced/in making the right decisions

gives me the conviction/to make these literary incisions

It gives me hope/and the ability to strive

To keep writing from my soul/and keep my spirit alive

It makes me untouched/and I haven’t changed much

I’m a rock//an impenetrable as such

If you ever need me/I’ll always be there

My heart forever open/and I’ll always care

the thoughts released/on this mic are free

from my mind to yours/is a special part of me

I hope that you grab them/cherish these life tested

ideas keep them close to your chest/I’ve invested

heavily with evergreen/cleverly worded configurations

steadily herding my minds/own complex machinations

 

I put everything I got/my essence my being

to these words that I speak/ to these thoughts that I think

every syllable comes from my soul/

every part of me that makes me feel whole

 

A Different time/A different space

I’m a different mind/I’m a different race

Abject discoveries/lovely mothering qualities

with a sense of forcefulness/a true dichotomy

its raw uncut emotion/presented scholarly

I withdraw my devotion/so you can come and follow me

I’m measured in my movements /towards destiny’s date

I’m feeling the improvement/as letters formulate

the voice I’ve been given/is such a powerful tool

I’d rather use its full potential/to wake up a fool

or pullback the wool/in the face of lies

Man its amazing the impact/you can have on other peoples lives

 

I’m timing beats/ words and rhymes

I’m forming structures/words and lines

I’m forming life/ lines/

that cross and intersect lives

 

I’m timing beats/ words and rhymes

I’m forming structures/words and lines

I’m forming life/ lines/

that cross and intersect lives

 

the voice I’ve been given/is such a powerful tool

I’d rather use its full potential/to wake up a fool

or pullback the wool/in the face of lies

Man its amazing the impact/you can have on other peoples lives
