as I tossed and turned unable to achieve sleep unable to control

anxiety unable to comprehend why
2Pac is not with us
if those who lived by the sword died by the sword there would be no
white men on earth
if those who lived on hatred died on hatred there would be no KKK
if those who lived by lies died by lies there would be nobody on wall
street in executive suites in academic offices instructing the young
don’t tell me he got what he deserved   he deserved a chariot and
the accolades of a grateful people
he deserved his life
it is as clear as a mountain stream as defining as a lightning strike
as terrifying as sun to vampires
2Pac told the truth
there were those who called it dirty   gansta rap inciting there were
those who never wanted to be   angry at the conditions but angry
at the messenger who report:  your kitchen has roaches your toilet
is overflowing your basement has so much water the rats are in the
living room
your house is in disorder
and 2Pac told you about it
what a beautiful boy graceful carriage melodic voice sharp wit intellectual
breadth what a beautiful boy to lose
not me   never me   I do not believe east coast west coast   I saw
them murder Emmett Till I saw them murder Malcolm X   I saw
them murder Martin Luther King   I witnessed them shooting
Rap Brown I saw them beat LeRoi Jones   I saw them fill their jails
I see them burning churches   not me   never me   I do not believe
this is some sort of mouth action   this is some sort of political
action and they picked well   they picked the brightest freshest
fruit from the tallest tree   what a beautiful boy
but he will not go away   as Malcolm did not go away   as Emmett
Till did not go away   your shooting him will not take him from us
his spirit will fill our hearts   his courage will strengthen us for the
challenge   his truth will straighten our backbones
you know, Socrates had a mother   she too watched her son drink
hemlock   she too asked why   but Socrates stood firm and would
not lie to save himself   2Pac has a mother   the lovely Afeni had
to bury her son   it is not right
it is not right this young warrior is cut down   it is not right for
the old to bury the young   it is not right
this generation mourns 2Pac as my generation mourned Till as we
all mourn Malcolm   this wonderful young warrior
Sonia Sanchez said when she learned of his passing she walked all day
walking the beautiful warrior home to our ancestors I just cried as all
mothers cry for the beautiful boy who said he and Mike Tyson would
never be allowed to be free at the same time who told the truth about
them and who told the truth about us who is our beautiful warrior
there are those who wanted to make him the problem   who wanted
to believe if they silenced 2Pac all would be quiet on the ghetto
front there are those who testified that the problem wasn’t the conditions
but the people talking about them
they took away band   so the boys started scratching they took away
gym   so the boys started break dancing the boys started rapping
cause they gave them the guns and the drugs but not the schools and
libraries
what a beautiful boy to lose
and we mourn 2Pac Shakur and we reach out to his mother and we
hug ourselves in sadness and shame
and we are compelled to ask:
R U Happy, Mz Tucker?  2Pac is gone
R U Happy?

I Watched Them Dance.

metaphoricallyenhanced:

She extended her arms towards the heaven
He stretched his calves down into the Earth,
The music said, “I will be your foundation.”
They danced…

Her back muscles melted into his forearm
And her legs moved into the wind
She was beautiful.

His chest flexed into her humility
And every muscle formed a rock
He was strong.

The muscles in her legs flexed into her leap
Of Faith
He didn’t catch her
He extended her
Higher

She was beautiful
He was strong
And together they danced. 
Together they loved.

FF([M]): Requiem for a Daydream: Day 2 - Crush

lofthoughts:

Day 2 — Crush (guess it’s not plaid!)

It’s a three-way

between plaid, a pair of headphones,

and a cozy invitation

to daydream. I see plaid everyday and it’s the same

pattern of lines and legs shifting in the rhythm

of red, black, and white. Promises to keep me more than blue

alone,…

FF([M]): Requiem for a Daydream: Day 1 — Best Friend

lofthoughts:

Where we at, where we at…

We’ve finally reached the past

with all this history. An email, a post,

and all the time warped to fit

half inside quicktime files and another “half” in that group

peace that never happened, amount to this letter being

sent across seas. This may reach you late,

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
