Yes, my mind knew him
Oh, too well-
And my heart swore to team;
That an oath was taken

And kisses siphoned all fakin'.

And so...

I swear, by my nose;
That indeed-
Our love was pungent
Our visions like morning coffee
The sex-
Like the first light of another ciggie.


I could swear, by my eyes;
That indeed-
Jealousy couldn't be less captured
That being blind was more of serenity.
My look-
Like a song fiercely communicated.


I would swear, by my mouth;
That indeed-
Kisses were the unsaid words
And words, spoken, should be triple distilled.
Like a double-edged sword.

So now mind knows;
That I know him,
All to well - to be no stranger.

How long will it take
How long will I shatter
How long will I lax

Take time wasted
Mend the broken glass
Tap ren still untouched

How long will it be
How long will I break
How long will I waste

Take what is
Mend the shattered dreams
Tap power within

I can't help it
And I can't loose myself

I can't save me
And I can't make myself

I can't look back
And I can't repeat myself

I can't do me
And I can't undo myself

I can't judge me
But I can make the future

I can't mend the pieces
But I can lose my insanity
Become half-full once again...

Im broken
Innocence laying bare.

Im torn,
With no  face, no name
All in the name of giving meaning-
Meaning to  being woman-
Meaning to being friend.

Im lost,
With missing pieces,
All from being naive-
All from being young..

All I can ask is was the innocence really mine?
Was I once whole?

GOOD MUSIC II : Ignorance is not a Defence

Attention Please: 

This might be a lengthy read. 

Hope you can excuse me as it's the first post of the year.

When you have those random contemplating moments triggered by insomnia and  find it normal to turn to music, I do that a lot. Appreciating all genres and not being spiritual, I turned back to one of my favorite albums of time, The Cool by Lupe Fiasco. Making this post as "short" as it should be and being "religious" to my thoughts, you can continue reading if you are a "believer" to the fact music is poetry and hip-hop is music.

I was checking various annotations to one of the songs he did (well was actually singing along) and one guy, who goes by the name WhenAllLacesIntertwine (yes, I contemplated on that alias; you can follow him at had his ten cents commenting. 

He annotates that:

"... This song is more of a metaphor of a virus and ignorance. Ignorance spreads everywhere like wildfire and no one really knows what goes on until it happens and even then, people don’t know what’s up. You can’t run from ignorance and everybody is somewhat ignorant. There is no way to escape from this reality. Some believe that there is no ignorance in the world while others believe there is too much of it. Some believe ignorance is bliss while others believe ignorance is chaotic. People begin to blame each other. The poor say the rich can cure ignorance while the rich believe the poor are the reason for ignorance. But in the end, everyone is sure it exists. Scientists think it’s only a state of mind while the kid believes he isn’t ignorant but girls are. Church leaders says ignorance is sin and kills the purity of the world while the bum believes everyone said it’s the whole world that’s ignorant..."

"... The ignorance has already spread at this point. We keep falling into a false sense of reality where everything is okay because everyone says its okay. You aren’t truly free until you think, much like Fredrick Douglass' case, where he believed someone is a man when they can use their head. Society and mass media has already defined our future and current roles in society and, due to our ignorance, we wouldn’t be able to tell. We are told certain things but we never question them. All we know is what to do and what not to do as opposed to why we should or shouldn’t do these things. Everything that happens plays a part into the build up and affect of this disease of ignorance. And nothing is ever the way it seems. Things are seen one way unless something enables the introduction of another thought. Scientists see the insanity of trying to understand ignorance within him. The little boy doesn’t know what happened to all the girls..."

End of Annotation

Well, I think I've spread his gospel and Lupe's too on Ignorance, I pray that we shun it and continue looking for such "gospel" in music (Good Music).  You can listen to the song- just had to place the best for last, Streets on Fire (contemplated on the title too):

P.S.  Ignorance is not a Defence!!!
