It's in the air...the panic and pandemonium
the confusion that transcends the unusual
unification of two things gruesome
into something beautiful.
The way you or I would utilize
the mind in order to stereotype and scrutinize
or to merely turn truth into lies
in order to ruin lives...
It's in the air...the niggardly ambition
of one who's intent, through fear,
is to manipulate current affairs,
so, like a pot of stew, they stir the air
and by way of cause and effect,
one's morals are subject to change
per the quarrels and stress of those
who lack substance and conquers wars through death...
It's in the air...the formula to the solution of life's problems
the intricate details that boggle perceptions
the message...the lessons...
The acute perspectives that defines
the most asked questions,
to such a degree, in which the answer
lies right before one's eyes
It's in the air...the medium
which one uses to convey thoughts.
Knowing that once I utter my decree
at 1,056 ft per second above sea...
That which created in mind
is now manifested via matter
per sonic vibrations that redefine
the conceptual structures of atoms.
It's in the air...to where as
once spoken, the air waves become open
alternating between unseen forces
that flow by forward motion.
And once perceived, that knowledge
becomes the wise words that, once spoken,
becomes the key to help others
understand such blunt notions...
It's in the air...let it resonate
allow the pressure of said words to build
until the vocal levee breaks...
It's in the air...
So Far We've Come
by D. Bland March 10, 2018
I ponder the change...I contemplate the transformations that we've made
as a people, from then til now, in this new day and age.
I...I think about all the things that transpired...the slave trade,
the genocide, the indoctrination, the riots. The dreamers that prophesized.
The...prejudiced deprivation that enabled segregation, and...ended
in sacrificed lives.
It's been a long time coming...but does it end here?
I pray for continuous elevation, but degradation is all I've heard.
And Solomon said that: " Life and Death is in the power of the tongue",
so why do our actions speak louder than our words...
"In the beginning was the word"...one of the most famously quoted lines...
but it's a lie!!! Because words are the by-product of thought,
which is a reflection of the mind. See, thought came first, then the words
were transcribed, but... they say that, that which was second is first
because words are manifested in time. So think, brothers, My brothers...
thinking is an action that keeps our words circumscribed, and a man who
thinks five times before speaking, is truly said to be wise.
So, first save self and then save lives...So far we've come...to where as our
tribulations and our trials don't seem much grander than our goal.
Our aims become deterred by the distractions that were thrown.
And for some of is that have seen those stones which laid amidst the
road we roam and stayed true...we stayed bold.
Our vision is never blurring, we stayed focused, we stayed cold- never warming
to those..."histories" they've told.
All we know is that...we stand for centuries of broken souls of those
who were pulled from , or slain in those broken homes.
...The first Creation of the Creation. Betrayed by those who envied,
and slain by those who were in abnegation of the truth, which some call
a mystery...is this a curse? To be sent forth first...to be deceived,
to be trampled. But we arose, we adapted, we've shown that our bones
aren't just ample. We endured, strived, fought, stood,
Made history, changed history and understood what's over stood.
So far we've come...from those slaves to these presidents, I ponder such change
I contemplate the transformation that we've made as a people, in this new day and age.
Views- by Davon Bland
March 2, 2018
As I peer through lenses at a world unevolved
witnessing the good die young, due to the persistence
of these vindictive rebels
those who chose oppression over liberation,
who pD. Blandlace false knowledge before education
would rather pursue destruction and degradation,
but would debate equality and better wages...
See, some say there exists a bigger picture
and pragmatically speaking, it encompasses all raw truths
and the line that divides bravery and stupidity is blurred
due to the youth who's in lieu of the wrong boots
in desperate need to fill shoes that won't fit
or make woeful attempts
to express views they don't get
from crews and cliques
to groups of movements and schools, cause like fish
we move in unison as one unit, we're smooth and swift
but it's a lose-lose, as if
certain rules got bent
by dudes who were sent to free, but went with greed
and our ancient creeds, with a mix of jewels
were submerged in pools, knowing it's truth
would imbue controversial views
Views that these murals won't portray
Views that these false prophets won't say
Things that these MP3's won't play
no more than what encripted scriptures will convey
But, no more...No more! To the decay, I say no more
I state that from a standpoint that stands for more
with my hands up, I prance with joy
as this ficticious decay of the government's ploy
first, get exposed, and then destroyed
and then I go and ponder...I sit and ponder
as I peer through lenses at this world
and listen to its ridiculous news
shaking my head, knowing how each pivotal move
could egregiously influence our ubiquitous views
