Proclamation #95

Proclamation #95, secured, emancipation
Signed, September 22, 1862
Changing status of 3 Million plus
Loopholes, excluded many, me-s and you-s

It’s effects were not immediate, not till January 1863
101 days for freedom slaves were to wait
If that man tried to leave, Day 99
Would he make it pass the slaver’s gate

3 million plus granted freedom
Objective? saving the Union, Not Human Care
250,000 slaves in border states and more excluded
Another 900 days of agony and despair]

And when it was said, Slavery is now Over
The Freed were advised to stay on as staff
For their idleness would not be tolerated.
Remain, where you’ve been less than a man

Thank God it was ultimately decided
That Freedom was more lucrative than not
Admittedly not to destroy slavery , cause
900 days to get to Texas? Damn that's a lot!

Proclamation #95, Secured emancipation
But freedom is an ongoing struggle
You can not be unaffected by inequality
There is no magical, equality bubble

Sit yo ass down
Sit yo ass down, and chill the hell out
Learn to simply enjoy life’s ride
Stop absorbing and exuding negativity
Move forward, leaving dumb shit far behind
Always looking for there to be a problem
Where there simply isn’t one
But your persistent quest for trouble
Will certainly create one before you’re done
Sit yo ass down, and chill the hell out
Learn to simply enjoy life’s ride
Stop absorbing and exuding negativity
Move forward, leaving dumb shit far behind

Bad Vibes
Bad vibes will affect your well being
Despairing thoughts, bore into your brain
Confrontational bad company, with bad intentions
Coupled with bad words, and your life could change
Words, most certainly have power
Many thoughts and emotions they will bring
Folks speak with, and without consideration
Often not clearly saying what they mean
No time for real, for confrontation
But occasionally, avoidance is not a choice
But be warned, I know, How To Go There Wit Cha!
YOU WILL NOT SILENCE MY OPINION, OR MY VOICE!
Not happy with who you’ve encountered?
You’ve lots of suggestions on what to improve
Sorry to make you aware so harshly
I have no interest, in an opinion, from you
So “Back Up” we ain’t even Potnas
And “Dat Shit” you did, was foul
You approached me “Mad Disrespectful”
SMH!, REALLY?, WTF?, “WOW’
Bad vibes will affect your well being
Don’t let them bring your spirits down
Avoid bad company with bad intentions
Don’t keep negativity around

Every guy, grab a girl

Every guy, grab a girl, hit the dance floor
And let the music take you there
Swing your hips and move your feet
Let loose and enjoy yourself, if you dare
Time is far too precious
To live life, music-less
When your head is boppin’ to the music
You're living life, at its best
Close your eyes and feel the music
It will inundated your soul
Dance and music bridge great divides
Uniting black and white, young and old
Time is far to precious
To live life music-less
When your toes are tappin’ to the music
You're living life, at it’s best
No matter your preferred genre
It all has a beat to savor
Hip Hop, Gospel Reggae
Or Rap with a Country flavor
Time is far too precious
To live without music and dance
Tap you toe, bop your head and shake a tail feather
Every time you get the chance

Creativity without content

Creativity without content
Is an empty copy of all the rest
Creativity with heart and passion
Shines, undisputedly, as the best

Dreams without imaginative foundation
Are pretty pictures stored in your mind
Fueling the chasing of another’s dreams
And not one of your own design

What is the basis of your passion
Creative licence, Money, or Fame?
All that glitters is not gold my friend
Your choice could bring a crazy game

Life has a way of working out, just as it should
Some things happen for reasons quite unknown
Then other times the harvest that your reap
I exactly what’s been sown

Creativity without content
Is an empty copy of all the rest
Creativity with heart and passion
Shines, undisputedly, as the best

Afraid

I’m fearing I may have to cut my losses
Afraid that something just ain’t right
I often question my decision
When I lay my head down at night

I seem to excuse away the logic
That causes me any doubt
I’ve asked a million questions
Still, no clue, what you’re thinking about

And so I’d like to ask a favor
Please spare me any heartache
If you know that’s in my future
Tell me now, that I’ve made a mistake

I’m fearing I may have to cut my losses
Afraid that something just ain’t right
I often question my decision
When I lay my head down at night

Fuck Buddy

Thought I wanted a fuck buddy
But I'm finding Im not the type
Cause the longer that we’re fucking
Something just ain’t adding up right

I have a sinking, sickening suspicion
I'm not the only one you are buddies with
And although I'm not looking for a soulmate
I simply ain't down with the sharing shit

I made it perfectly clear what I was wanting
There's no confusion as to what I was looking for
If that isn't also want you’re here for?
I ask again, please quit knocking on my door

Kinda figuring that you'll feel no losses
If I decide to error on the side of caution
Cause it already seems I didn't make the list
Of what’s important, or at least not often

Though I could handle having a fuck buddy
But I guess that just ain't true
Cause it seems I'm developing feelings
And I'm not getting the same vibe from you.

Confidence

Confidence is great, that's one thing
While arrogance, is quite another
Confidence encourages trying new things
Arrogance lends dependence on opinions of others

If your swag shines outward from an inner peace
And you're happy with who you are
Step into life with a joyful confidence
You'll be successful, both near and far

Arrogance, on the other hand
Is a story you've made up in your mind
One day you'll face the truth mirror
And your arrogance will be left behind

Confidence is great, that's one thing
While arrogance is quite another
Confidence encourages trying new things
Arrogance lends dependence on opinions of others
