What would it take for you to change your XY Axis, the coordinates that are pre-loaded for you by the current system, the system that labeled you a Statistical Criminal, Athlete or Entertainer and not much more before you were even born. What will it take for you to overlook all of those odds, to not be dismayed by your wicked portrayal on the mass media outlets. What will it take for you to dismiss all of those suggestive typecasts, take no distracting offenses to them and Just Be, you know; just Be YOU, like a better you or better yet Be like a Bee. Pretty much buzzing and going around all day collecting ideas, Love, respect, compassion and spreading all of your positive energy from one neighborhood to the next, within your community.
Generation X took out Malcolm, than it took out King. Left the rest of America in a state of why? I don’t know for sure, but Y would come a decade later with a boat load of Coke with no smile, I sigh, and Reaganomics. It’s the 80’s Baby! Those 2 unfortunate events and Vietnam still had a lot of us numb, so without sober leaders; MTV, Hip Hop and Sports kept us glued. Starving, uneducated without a trade, disenfranchised. We’d huddle up to beatbox and break in the park to pass time and keep off of the streets before our mothers came home from work, dad, well dads conveniently weren’t around, but not at work though. Eventually father system came around with deals and offers and Y had no choice but to break records and break down crack at all costs. Completely ignoring the prophet’s teachings to make a profit.
Long after X. The 90’s Baby! Was it profitable Y? Let’s see; genocidal epidemics, rampant teenage pregnancies, no family structure, mass incarcerations; all glorified; for a foolish less profit to problem ratio in its recipient’s backyard, I can, but I won’t go on.
Now, where are we, yes, the hopeful technological 21st Century, what will it take for you to be a Leader today? Pack up, then ship all the remnants of XY and the excuses of yesterday, so that you can shift the momentum your way, in this Present Time. What will it take for you to Be a Bee and pollinate your community with Positivity and finally move on from that X; ask yourself Y. Why do I still allow my past to affect my gift, the Present. Ask yourself, why can’t I Live in Peace, why not me and my family. Ask yourself, Why not me? Why not us? Well, that answer is in your willingness to fight, fight for your personal Peace.
If you’re reading this and you are asking yourself why not me. I strongly encourage you be proactive and search from within yourself to find your Peace, whatever you may be going through or have been through, it’s inadvertently to get to; where? right where you are now, if where you are now is not suitable to your liking, then change your Lifestyle. Change your XY Axis and keep going, keep striving for a better version of yourself and your circumstances. A peaceful you will yield a peaceful community, it all starts with you my King, with you my Queen, with you my Prince, with you my Princess, why not YOU. You can be a better person, father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, friend and etc…, it takes effort, but you can yield success.
If need be, seek help, find someone that you can talk to, join an organization, like Live in Peace; this is a great one, but there are many other organizations out there that are maybe more suitable for you where you’re at, like a church, a mosque, a Kingdom Hall, just to name a few places that can help you help yourself. Don’t allow anybody to take care of you, but yet mistreat you in the process if you’re able to get up on your own two and walk yourself where you need to get to.
Patron, whatever you do, be proactive for change, don’t just sit and wallow in your circumstances. You can change it. Get up. Change your XY Axis. Aim for success. Selah
