So I’m close to thirty and I know that the a lot of people are like “I’m almost thirty. I’m old”. I look at it like, Thank God I made it this far and I hope that I’m blessed to live another thirty. When I hear people complaining about getting older I don’t get it. As I have gotten older I have become smarter and I seem to enjoy life more the when I was younger. I don’t focus on a lot of the crap that young people focuse on. My life has gotten better with time, because i’ve learned how to make it better.
I had a coversation with my wife the other day about doing music full time and getting my education and her going after her dreams. Her first reply was, “We’re almost thirty. It’s time for us to get settled…etc” My reply was thats a boring exitance. I told her that we are in our prime. We have had a lot of life experience and we have finally found exactly what we want to do with our lives and are both completely focussed on it. We can’t alow the stigma of what a thirty year-old married couples life is supposed to be make us miseralble or we can Live and become what God has intend us to become. There is no better time then now for us to go after what we want.
I always use the example of my grandmother who had 9 kids and got her batchelors degree with out finishing Highschool. There is no better time like the present. You can look at you situation and look at the negitives of it or you can focus on the positive and what you will create your situation to be..
I have not always been one to focus on my destination instead of my situation, but I have learned to do that and it has made me a much happier and fulfilled person. I look forward to getting older because I know my best years are ahead of me and I think I got my wife to understand that her best years are ahead of her to.
“Running from destiny only delays happiness,
but those things delayed are not denied.”
(my Grand Mother)
“I left her standing there holding a cup of tea
The sun was on its way down as I walked down the street
I listened to her silent screams of “Come back Home”,
But I couldn’t come back home till the cup of tea was gone
The sky was a yellowish-blue splashed with purple smiles
Happiness was locked in the pit of her stomach gagged and bound
I was only about a mile away when I saw Her face drowning in tears
Reflected in the market window
There was a subconscious fear of walking away, but I never looked back
Even though I was grateful for what’s behind me
My cup of tea seems to have a decrescendo
You can hear it slowly dying
I cried a little, but the were no oceans created
She failed to realize that Her eyes lost the sun
The end was near and it was only a matter time
Until one of us realized that out time had come”
Breaking up is always hard, Especially when it’s one sided. It’s harded enough to love, let alone tring to love again after your heart has been broken. Sometimes love doesn’t seem like it’s worth it, but i can say that when i look into the eyes of my children they remind me that it’s priceless. There is nothing that can be traded for love. So, Keep living and Keep loving no matter how much it hurts. The Joy will out way the pain in the end…
Integrity is the fingerprint of you legacy…
What up people? Got a new album droping march 24th. Come Check me out at Skully’s for the release!
It’s interesting that people work for most of their lives doing a job that they hate in order to chase a dream. I know a lot of cats that do it. I do it with the belief that I will one day live out my dreams. I’ve been in the position to live out my dreams, but my reality had to be my priority. Now my dreams are again coming into focus and I have learned Balance. In order to reach that goal and live out that dream balance is a necessity. I have God in his place at the head of my life. I am taking each step like it’s my last, being lead to the light by the light and I’m loving every minute of it. If you have a dream, chase it to the ends of the earth, but if you are not called in that area then you will not have good success.
“There’s good success and bad success
We’ll soon see if your empire was built wrong,
the beautiful city may crumble at you feet
Because a foundation is only as strong
as the backs it’s built on”
Make sure you live right and treat people fair. If you build you dreams with a foundation of being schisty and untrustworthy then you success will reflect that and it won’t last. Look a Suge Knight. He had a good run, but his foundation was built on the backs of people who feared him not loved him so his empire crashed. Live life cautious with love and respect for the people around you. Your rewards will come and you won’t have to work the job you hate for too long….
Integrity is the finger print of your legacy
Hey! It’s Illogic here to share some of my thoughts, short stories and poems. Hope you guys like it. Leave some comments and feed back. I’m going to start with a little piece called “Dignity of a Rebel”. Let me know what you think. Don’t forget “Diabolical Fun” drops march 24th on weightless recordings along with the new book of poems and short stories “Tomorrow’s Memories”. BOOM!
Dignity of a Rebel
It seems the stars are in perfect alignment
for the emergence of those whose forefathers
had the assignment of building this country
that holds your freedom in the balance.
We’ve never been closer to a global alliance
and the end of the individual then we are right now.
So excuse me if sometimes I want to escape reality
and bathe in the clouds somehow,
completely captivated by the tomorrow’s
and standing firm on the broken and scarred backs
that yesterday recalls.
It’s up to you to embrace the dignity of the rebel.
Be bold in what history’s canvas inspires you to draw.
Intergrity is the fingerprint of your Legacy
