We go right to left, left to right. If you fight to the death, what’s left to fight?”
At times I sit back with a half a hundred sack. I take flight into the strata, and then I leave this solar system. When I settle down, I sit and spin the world on one finger. I wonder how a father could not love his only child, his own namesake. I wonder how could a mother smoke and drink throughout her pregnancy, knowing she’s carrying a future king or queen. I wonder how this country could have a surplus of food yet allow children starve every day. But in reality, these aren’t rhetorical questions. They have answers. Ultimately, there is a single answer. This is an imperfect world. Bad things happen every day, all over the globe. But, at the end of the day, everything comes down to whether you are a glass half full or glass half empty type of person. If you only see the bad in life, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll always overlook the good. Believe it or not, for every bad thing we see, hear about, or endure, there are many good deeds taking place all over. Many go unmentioned. Good news doesn’t have that allure bad news does, so it’s often unheard or overlooked. But this life, this world isn’t as bad as the picture television or pessimists paint it to be. I see so much good every day, and I refuse to be and think like so many nightmare holders I know. #lifeisgood
I’m from what I assume to be the minority of people who aren’t under the presumption that every single aspect of life is about them. I don’t take myself too seriously. I’m not afraid to laugh at myself, nor am I ashamed of admitting to my many flaws and imperfections. I realize, as astute and educated as I am, that I may have the incorrect answer from time to time, whether it be trivial or strategic. I am and have always been open to criticism, understanding that another set of eyes may spot a blemish I may have overlooked. What scares me is that our culture has begun to travel on the complete opposite train of thought. Every idiot in the streets believes he or she has all the MF answers, irrespective of the topic. No one can take a shred of criticism, even if it’s dead accurate. It’s so ridiculously out of hand. Ignorance is at a level that has become quite scary. What’s scary is the fact that knowledge has taken a complete back seat. It’s one thing not to know, it’s another thing to not even want to know. I’m not the pastor, so I’ll stop there. But damn, some of you MF are zoo certified monkeys. Go climb a tree.
There’s a borderline disturbing trend with youngn’s these days of recording altercations with their smart phones. Recording fights has become the standard for teens, and has been this way for a couple years now. The other day in a town in Bergen County, New Jerz, three barely adult idiots recorded themselves sexually assaulting a past intoxicated and unconscious 15 year old. The three idiots showed the recording around the hood like O-Dog’s convenience store double homicide security footage. So, not only did the recording provide evidence of a crime, it also simultaneously became various child pornography charges. Those three boys are through. I’m not making any statement with regard to morals because clearly their offense was felonious and deplorable, borderline heinous. What I’m saying is that the recording makes it a slam dunk in the courtroom. Those boys may never see the light of day. That child pornography could make it quiet for them…and they deserve it. I know I’m old AF, but in my time, we damn sure wouldn’t have recorded any type of dirt. When I was at the height of my hustle and MySpace was jumping, I refused to join. That was the most absurd shit possible I used to say whenever my lil mami back then used to beg me to join. I did my dirt on the low and on my lonely. That’s my advice to any street upstart out there. And oh yeah, stay up out them cop cars and camera lenses. And don’t ever tell. Get yours.
