Networking

 

The idea is so redundant
A like, share or invitation request
And we’re suddenly now Connections?

Oh no.
Relationships will forever be traditional
Genuine interactions are what builds connections

Your friends, followers, connections
Do you really know them?
Endorse me?

Of course I can use Microsoft Office!
😑
Do refrain.

Hi, would you like to have lunch or dinner with me?
You do?
Ok, let’s schedule a date and time.

Vision

 

Some are nearsighted
It’s genetics, not a fault
It’s imperative we celebrate our differences

Interdependence
Complimentary
That’s why there is ying and yang

We need the optimists and pessimists
The dreamers and doers
We need the artists and the mechanics

It takes everyone to see the whole.

Empathy

 

It’s a half emotion
Barely enough
Understand maybe,
But what about your personal perception?

I don’t.
I conjure images and emotions
You my dear are irreplicable
As I cannot truly share your thoughts

It may never be ok
I say rely on the strength of another
Until you gain strength enough
We were not meant to be burden bearers

1 Peter 5:7
It’s all I know
Adam and Eve fucked us over
But you don’t have to bear this alone…

I Believed In Me

 

She is so rude
No manners
Lazy ‘pickney’

I simply laughed
Surely I was divergent
Honest I would say
Certainly no hard worker
Doesn’t the end justifies the means?

They didn’t know what they wanted
Incorrectly packaged I guess
Think, but do not question me
Do not lie, but say what makes ‘me’ feel good

Rubbish.
Fortunately I believed in me.
A child shall lead them
I shall never depart from my ‘apparent’ naivety

They know it all
Yet they have no hope
They solve no problems
They are grossly unhappy…

It’s sad.
Pity it is.
But I’m happy I believed in me.

Letters

 

Writing is precious
It translates fear, pain, anger, love, anguish, loneliness…
It captures them all

Words gave us life
A cathartic outlet
An ecstatic rendezvous

Bare your soul carelessly
As I will bask empathetically
Let us live vicariously

I simply love to write
And I hope you do too.

The Lonely Unknown

 

Unpredictability excites me
Strong urges to just run
Long, fast and far
Into oblivion

Fear? Oh no,
I no longer possess that
You see, I am a child of the King
You know, the author and finisher and all that kind of thing
Yes! HIM

I live on the edge
It’s a awe inspiring place to be
I don’t even trust myself
But I trust HIM

Roads untread, paths not yet paved
They make for a great story
It’s where I found Imani,
It’s where I found Christ
In the lonely unknown…

The Masses

 

The masses I call them
So crude
But it’s not meant to be rude

Not at all.
Remember the bell curve?
Normal Distribution they say

Well yes,
That’s who I’m referring to
The average majority.

It’s statistics
Certainly not a dirty word
They are quite good actually

Good gatherers
Disciplined Soldiers
It’s mutual interdependence
The outliers need the masses
The opposite of which also holds true.

Farewell

 

I woke up to snow
That light hearted bustling orchestra
Yes, the quiet rain

I’d admired it you see
The tranquility and joy
I looked on from my window sill

I love dancing in the rain
But I’ve only dreamt of laying in the snow
It’s like star gazing during a meteriod shower

Oooh, I’d love to see one of those.
But, today this beautiful earth
Said farewell my love.

We enjoyed your company
Yes, we had just as much fun
You appreciated us with new eyes
And that was more than enough…
