This week's Rant literally DROVE me crazy! Living in the city, I'm sure hundreds of you can relate. That's why I don't feel so bad presenting this topic as I believe I'm expressing points that most of us have thought of or still think about...maybe even worst. Check out my words and follow what I mean.
Most people are influenced by what they see on television or read in magazines, blurring the lines between reality and entertainment. We used to be able to tell the difference between the two, but society has changed that. Now we're being told that we're not good enough. Offering yourself to the system is the only way to succeed. I say I'm nobody's whore! And after you check out tonight's Blogisode, I hope you feel the same way.
Back from vacation, Floetry Friday is back with another new poem, dedicated to all those who have questions about the ways of today's world. Questions pop in my head everyday and I'm no closer to finding the answers. This is what I feel when I get eluded by those answers and don't know where to search for them. Take some seconds to read this poem and see if you feel the same as I do.
Nas at one time said that hip-hop is dead. He couldn't have been more right. The real sound still exist, but not on the radio. On this week's Rantin' Thursday, I get in on the poorly, saturated sound of today's version of hip-hop music...at least that's what its being called today. (Personally, I call it something else.) Check it out and feel my Rant!
I've heard the old expression that sometimes the teacher can learn from the student. In this particular Blogisode of The Eleventh Hour, I learn a lesson from my son as his determination to not be left behind by the pack motivated him to learn how to ride a scooter! If a 4 year old can have the heart to not quit, even if it seems like the dream will never come true, we as adults should take note and realize that nothing is too far out of reach. Perseverance is the key! Read tonight's Blogisode and enjoy!
There are so many songs that we grew up listening to still played in today's culture. I wonder why that is? Could it be because that's what our parents forced us to listen to or did we search for certain songs that talked to our hearts? On today's Blogisode, I discuss how my own songs are taking the first steps towards the journey of music and how it may affect their lives in the future. Sounds intriguing, huh? Read on!
With all that has been going on this past year, I just felt it in my heart to speed the message that we are all God's children. Hate can only go so far, causing nothing but further pain. We're not only this Earth for very long. Why waste your days with hate? Spread the love. Please
