Poetrimony – Seasons Are In The Air – I’m Melancholy – Marley, MJ, Ms. Bey, Lil Wayne & Others – Know What I’m Feeling In This Moment

Today I woke up feeling melancholy again, with Seasons on my mind. 

Seasons are always on my mind.  The theme of this blog is Seasons As Our Teacher.  I gained discernment about Seasons from nature.  God’s breath rests comfortably within nature.  Therefore, I spend time in nature to gain God’s understanding.  In a sense, when nature speaks to me, God is speaking to me.

This post is another mashup.  I love doing mashups because they reveal how eclectic and complex, I’ve become.  But my complexity is not of my own doing.  I am complex because of complex times and experiences.  We’re in a complex Season.

We are in a revolution whether you recognize it or deny it.  We are in the midst of the New World Order and must adapt to the Season, just as nature does.

This post features poems related to Seasons and the melancholy spirit that I feel in this moment.  To accentuate my spirit, I’ve selected original poems, and songs from popular artists, who feel or have felt this same sentiment.

My song choices are also eclectic, spanning across eras, years, and perspectives.  These songs were artistically composed when these artists likely felt as I do today.  Kevy Continue reading “Poetrimony – Seasons Are In The Air – I’m Melancholy – Marley, MJ, Ms. Bey, Lil Wayne & Others – Know What I’m Feeling In This Moment”

People Just Want To Live! – We Should Feel Compelled To Do More Than Just Talk & Pray Or Get Out Of Way – The XYZ Revolution Is Here!

Here it is, in May of 2020 and my mind is confused.

I’m an educated black man. I’m a well-versed black man, and I know the feelings that I have are not wise. On one hand, I’m beginning to hate white people. I know that doesn’t make sense because there’s good and bad in every race. But I’m really beginning to hate white superiority and white indifference.

This is the reason that my mind is confused. It’s because I’m feeling opposing emotions at the same time.

I appreciate what I saw yesterday, the day before, and perhaps today at peaceful rallies against police killings. The majority of the participants were White, as well as other non-Black races. And, we all got along well as we fought for a common good cause. These were primarily young people. They hate White privilege, often to the dismay of family and friends, and they’re White! They were impressive too. They were kind and sincere in their concern and loyalty to the movement.

All Of This From Bob Marley Is Amazing! – Ziggy – Cedella – Damian – Stephen – Karen – Ky-Mani – Skip – Julian – Rohan – And Changing The World, On The Side

This post is dedicated to the legacy of Bob Marley.  …And the one that his children are creating today.

Bob Marley’s legacy is timeless and still resonates around the world.  That’s what some would refer to as a ‘baller’.  He lives on, even after his death.  His life-energy is stronger today than it was when he was here in flesh.  He has influenced the world, even in countries that do not understand English.

That is admirable.

I aspire to leave a legacy behind for the lives that I may touch.  This desire has ignited a flame to produce bodies of work in blog posts, poetry, short stories, recording, and videos. These works are for others to evaluate and perhaps become inspired by.

I leave this for others simply because, as life would have it, I am now too old to benefit from most of the wisdom that I’ve gained.  As they say, ‘if I knew then, what I know now’, I would have done many things differently and better.’ 

Such an impressive legacy is much the same as the ones left by my mother Eunice, as well as, the legacies of Martin Luther King, JFK, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Prince, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Mother Theresa, David Bowie, Tupac, and the list could go much longer.
