The Art of You

Posted by | Film/Video, Life, 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 what you gonna do?
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 what you gonna do?
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 what you gonna do?
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 what you gonna do?
Are you willing to rattle yourself for mental wealth
Are you willing to battle self for mental health

#Selfies

Posted by | Film/Video, Life, Poetry | No Comments

It’s a modern day affliction
When you’re obsessed with your self
You ain’t got time for no one else
We gotta stop feeding this selfish culture
Selfies, the carcass of humanity
Cameras, the vulture its insanity
when society is off feeding their own ego
you won’t gain the nourishment to truly grow
why’s, it all gotta be attention grabbing
trapped, in all these instagram distractions
Breeding apathy and little satisfaction
all attempts, at forcing a reaction
contempt, at those trying to gain traction
all seeding, the same piece of action
I see it, from presidents to actors
conceit, with the ‘look at me factor’
I’ve discerned, I’m concerned at this trend
that you’re more important than your own friends
when, your fellow man deserves thoughts first
when you think of yourself, then humanity hurts
you get burnt, when paying it backwards
see if the camera is always facing back at ya
you’ll never capture the truth
and all we’ll get is the regression of a parasitic youth

damn

the worlds obsessed with itself
It’s all selfies, never selfless

A true reflection is never found in the mirror
living in a shallow world digging a little deeper

your life broadcast for self validation
damn its causing aggravation
from Facebook to Instagram its endless
a digital world of friends for the friendless
its got me restless for the rest of us
it seems now life is rife with bigging up yourself
now surely that can’t be, good for your health
no encouraging signs your blind to life
why would you capture life instead of living it
because then you end up never being in it
your phone has you living for someone else
just to tell you that you’re gorgeous
now that is just plain torturous
I see the greatest art in history not appreciated
people rather take photos of themselves with it
great art and architecture stands the test of time
but a photo of yourself leaves nothing behind
try creating something that benefits society
because just relaying your life story bores me highly
