The Past Should Be Just That


"There's a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the negro race before the public. Some of these folks do not want the negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well." Booker T. Washington (1865-1915)

THE PAST SHOULD BE JUST THAT

How prophetic was he, Booker T.

Knowing how people of his race used their liberty

Grateful and successful some went on to be

Taking advantage of their hard fought dignity

Yet there are some who still choose to wear chains

Dwelling on bitterness that in memories remain

Using past indiscretions of our ancestors for their gain

Choosing instead of liberty that for our great grandfathers we explain

And our history will haunt us as still a prejudice prevails

In those who harbor hate and that fact is thinly veiled

It has always been the same free air every ethnic group has inhaled

It's time to know our freedom and upon no cross be nailed

Blindfolded when we touch the skin all feels the same

It is time to bury the past that was brutally insane

We should all be pulling together as free Americans who reign

Singing songs of unity aboard the freedom train

Personal responsibility is truely where it's at

Offer and accept apologies and and just let the past be that.

Terror

"There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it." -Alfred Hitchcock

THE REASON TERRORISTS WIN

If only one victim falls after a terrorist threat

And the odds are against each individual's demise

Just the thought that randomly anyone can lose his head

Is all that a terrorists needs to victimize

It could be any one of us on any corner

It need not be hundreds that die

It is that we all have been brutally warned

In a bloody film prepared for our fearful eyes

Realizing our Responsibilities

"Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breath the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal" -John F. Kennedy

REALIZING OUR RESPONSIBILITIES

We are but children of God

We are different as well as the same

Somehow we have become all Americans

But for some it is only in name

In the common air we breathe

Shouldn't we all be expected to contribute?

Charity must always come from the heart

And our gains not be forced to distribute

We are all mortal and prone to mistakes

The consequences land upon us all

But we should keep our children in mind

It's on their shoulders our decisions will fall

The Citizens are the Mighty

"He who controls others may be powerful but he who has mastered himself is mightier still." -Lao Tzu

THE CITIZENS ARE THE MIGHTY

He gathered the votes through devious means

Racial shame was but one reason he reigns

A mere community organizer

Has led our country to countless pains

He may be powerful in his position

And we bow to him out of respect

But only that he sits in such status

And it is reverence that the citizens expect

Have we stood in error with the protocol?

Should his title give him such control?

Perhaps it is time to name him the source

As to why we continue to fall

Yes, the office deserves certain honor

But the man who sits there must be

One who himself honors the office

And stands to fight for our liberty

We must certainly be our own masters

And recognize our ultimate goal

Is for the best of our country

And it is We, the People in control

The Tribe

We sure do have an awesome family. Thank you Dessip and 3lover for making the long trip home.

Love to all.

THE TRIBE

They once lived together in a great big house

Spirited children with their own agendas

Times were good at 43 South

We did things to forever remember

Typical of families we had to part

Growing into new relationships and adventures

All children become grown and must embark

Into new eras of toil and splendor

Fortunate were we to reconnect

And find our love that hid so dormant

We found it pleasing to recollect

That our love for one another is important

Blessed are we to have these ties

Thank keep us close and bind us

Laughing about good times gone by

That we thought had been lost behind us

I feel a special aura around us

In those special times we can meet

I experience a familiar love surround us

As our memories we try to repeat

Children are we amid the laughter

Telling stories again and again

It is odd that among the stones we linger

In the little town where we'd once been

It is fun to play the part of clowns

With too many years behind us

Feeling the love that has no bounds

Sharing these memories to remind us

Conspirators

April 27th speech by JFK..."WITHOUT debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed...and NO REPUBLIC CAN SURVIVE! That is why the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the first amendment...THE ONLY business in America specifically protected by the constitution...not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and sentimental, not to simply 'give the public what it wants'....BUT TO INFORM, TO AROUSE, TO REFLECT, TO STATE OUR DANGERS AND OUR OPPORTUNITIES, TO INDICATE OUR CRISES AND OUR CHOICES, TO LEAD, MOLD EDUCATE AND SOMETIMES EVEN ANGER PUBLIC OPINION."

Yet now our press uses its power to distort the news to reflect their own political agendas. DF

CONSPIRATORS

Throw the window open wide

Let not the secrets in a White House hide

Shout from the rooftops, Hark!

Let no people be left in the dark

No leader shall be quiet

Lest the people will rise to riot

No destructive agenda will sneak through

While we have our national news

But what, pray tell, has happened here?

Bias contaminates our curious ear

The nightly news spreads his lies

And have become his closest allies

The first amendment meant to protect the press

Has added to the citizens' stress

A leader ruins us with his lies

And the newscasters are his alibi

Unlikely conspirators who will fall our nation

Feeding bias reports with corrupt sensation

The White House and the media combined

To mold like clay the people's minds

Diversion

Dr. Ben Carson. "We need to understand that we are not each others enemies in this country. And it is ONLY the political class that derives its power by creating friction. It is only the media that derives its importance by creating friction...that uses every little thing to create chasim between people. This is not who we are."

DIVERSION

Those in power with clandestine ideals

Use turmoil to alter the people's will

While we look into the destruction before our eyes

Of the leader's awesome duties we sympathise

But he thrives on chaos to hide his intent

Into a diversion his many minions are sent

As we watch the bombed buildings of diversion burn

We are bamboozeled as our republic is overturned
