Goddess morning Royals. First I need to address a mistake I made yesterday but not paying my respects to the woman who have a great hand in raising me. Happy Belated Birthday to my Grandma Mildred Moore, may you continue to Walk with the Lord. Also sending love and birthday wishes to my twin cousins, Anthony and Antoine Moore. Enjoy fellows and may the Lord bless you with many more.
Now down to business. I wasn’t sure what title fit these post so if you think I need to change it say so. These thoughts woke me out of my sleep so this post is actually being written at 12:25 am. Anyway, we as parents, as people of color needs to learn how to use our voices to be heard. We don’t speak up for the things we want, as well as the things we need. We need to speak even louder for those who have no voice and scream if you have to for those who have a voice but are special and will not be heard. We are their advocates and if we don’t speak, scream and fight for what they need our future and theirs are even more lost then what we face at this moment in time.
We tend not to want to fight so we don’t rock the boat but sometimes the boat needs to be rocked in fact it needs to be tilted the hell over. If we don’t show them you are their strength then they will show us. If we don’t show them respect, how can they display it. If we don’t show them At this moment that is what they are showing us but they are doing it wrong and who are allowing it, us. They are killing one another at an alarming rate and if you think that the government is going to really step in you are clearly mistaken. To them all they see is savages doing exactly what savages do, destroy, kill, be destructive, display their ignorance amongst other things. If we don’t show them peace, how can they live in it. If we don’t show them love, how can they give it. If we don’t show them a better way, they surely will make one, even if it isn’t better. If we don’t bring peace to them now how can we say rest in it later, if they damn sure didn’t live in! I am not a great fan of violence but I will fight when I have to, so I don’t allow people to put me in that predicament.
If you don’t back yourself in the corner than there is not reason to feel like you have to come out swinging. Take pride in what you have to offer this world, because when we show weakness is when they strike. Get that fear out of your heart for what you fear is what you think you cannot have or believe that you should not have. When you speak fear in existence then it shows in everything you do and it becomes failure. Not all failures are disappointing some are just lessons that you did something wrong and should go back and correct it. When we allow the failure to defeat us is when we have allowed fear to take over and we dare to try again. That is that weakness showing its ugly head and we break into a daily routine. Just to keep ourselves from trying again. Yeah I know it was scary but not living is even scarier, not fulfilling a dream is horrifying, not learning from mistakes is devastating.
Don’t be that person because we show the children that fear and then they take matters into their own hands. Without knowing what is really going on, they by all means necessary, become our protectors but that is in reverse. We know it but our fears are now what we are using as excuses, shields, and barriers to keep us from getting hurt again. In all retrospect that isn’t the way, we have to take back that fear and raise our children properly, efficiently, productively, spiritually, mentally, and physically, with love, respect, determination, and patience. We as parents aren’t doing that anymore we are allowing the streets and the system to do it and frankly have the audacity to get upset when they aren’t doing such a great job. HELLO, they are doing your job. STEP UP AND DO YOUR OWN JOB. YOU MADE THEM THEN YOU SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THEM BY ALL MEANS NECESSARY. If the children can adopt this concept why the hell can’t we. Because of fear the system will not allow us to do so. So we give up and allow the system to have their way. I’ll be damn! The system didn’t go through my hours of labor, nor was they there for my time of pleasure.
I am going to stop here because I have too much to say on the subject. I would love to hear you feed back on this one. Am I wrong or do you think I am just venting?
Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove
