Oppressor's Realization {Part II}


" When you felt that your place in authority would be forever and allowed yourself to be in need of making other's feel insignificant a wake up call would be made with the recipient being none other than yourself. "



He is the brotha that you talked down to 
You treat him like a lesser being because of a paycheck 
Your gross income surpasses his revenue 
He is now the inferior because the ideology got to your head 
A brotha gotta endure this model behavior 
Just because you got a college degree and a fat cheque
Pat yourself on the back, you must feel like a G.

He's already accumulated more I O U's than you've had in your lifetime
He's probably smarter but that don't matter
Always thought that he was dumb, you never knew his IQ
A brotha's struggles never seem to end
It's a long term depression gotta break that mentality
It's real funny what life can take from a person
Lady what would you do if tomorrow you woke up 
And there had been some sort of role reversal

He was in your position, and you in his 
Maybe this would make you understand things better 
Understand that a man's story should not be based on his beginning but rather his end 
For the riches now possessed were once rags 
You wouldn't blame a brotha if he tried to get you back 
Maybe in an attempt to get an apology out of you
Or to make you see things, may not always be forever
And that so called cashflow you got will eventually end
'Cause when you get called home you going back the way you came

Without nothing but yourself to account for 
A brotha's scaring you making you come to the reality 
That in due season you'll be living Ecclesiastes 5:15


That is my word and poetry presented for you to be blessed as you will, I hope you enjoyed reading that

Oppressor's Realization {Part I}

Prepare Yourselves This Is Going To Be A Longer Than Usual Reading Session. 

Many times in life we deceive each other that we understand each other’s struggles and issues that are to be faced, we give fake solace with expression of smiles and compassion/sympathy that don’t even pass our teeth or hearts. In these acts we indirectly inconvenience and even deceive ourselves, and this should not be the case we should be able to open our eyes to see beyond that person’s struggles and see in which way we can help each other out in order to make the recovery or overcoming of those issues easier because you never know the day the tables will turn on you or even someone close to you. We should also be able to tell each other that, no I don’t know what you’re going through but in any way that I can help you get through this I will be more than happy to help you, simple!

In all things that we should learn and take from life, one thing we should strive to take and build on is selflessness, this can be practiced in various ways through charity, helping others, take that time out to just make conversation with that boy, girl, lady or gentlemen that we may sit next to in class or in your office or any other place where you find yourself on a daily basis.You never know what they could be going through & yes I know that you as a person could have your own things to deal with but ain’t no gain without pain. In getting across to them, maybe try to say “Hi” make a little conversation; at the worst that person will be rude but it will be at their loss they never even gave someone so special like you the chance to be known.

 In your efforts to reach out to people or make conversation, you not only feel better about yourself but you get to know something or someone that you didn’t know about before. The whole point in living is to learn new things as you progress on this journey; the moment you stop allowing yourself to be educated is the day that you stop all development and add to the individuals that just exist as mere life forms breathing for the sake of just being able to tell someone they can breathe.


I’ll stand today and tell you that as Pebble$, I admit and acknowledge that I may not know you because in your opinion you’re not famous but in Pebble$ Personal Opinion, I believe that anyone given the privilege to live in this life is a great celebrity with a purpose and mission in life that they must complete, now whether that mission is completed or not is up to the individual. Some have fame attached to their mission while others are blessed to have lives considered to be low-key that are blessed enough to be VIPs in their own cities, towns or neighborhoods for achievements or just standing for great values and standards; that are enough to drive generations that follow to ensure that they maximize their resources and secure themselves great futures.

You, dear reader are a great person and you should know that, you are valued not just because you are reading this but because you woke up this morning and decided to make it worth your while and, I hope after you leave my blog you leave knowing that you have a great future that is waiting for you to pick up the building blocks and build away to your own certified level of perfection. Someone out there is waiting to have the privilege to meet you and they are depending on you to get to the next level in their personal journey. You have the keys that they need to push forward; these keys could just be a few words from you or anything else that you hold as a gift that could be a blessing to someone else.

Please understand that even though you are relied on does not mean that you have the right to make that person feel any less than you because if you do someone else can easily be risen up in your place and used as the instrument for elevation and progress. So understand how precious you are to hold that gift, that position, that job, that role, those words, those keys, those unique qualities.

Remember that as great as you are there is also someone out there that is also supposed to be the one or ones that you are given the privilege to meet that can help in your progression; appreciate everyone because you can never be sure who they will be. Maybe the old lady that gets on your last nerves next door, the lady or the gentlemen you meet in the elevator every morning but have never spoken to in the 12 years that you have both caught the elevator or subway at the same time.


Woah, OK !! After writing all of that, which I didn’t think I would end up writing when I started this post, I think I’m lost for words to say so watch out for Part II which will be posted shortly, which was the basis for this great Pebble$ L. King Speech .. Lol !

Callin Out !

One of my newest compositions which captures the thought of an individual daily and frequently noted in a diary, throughout taking note of these events and thoughts she constantly mentions Dear Diary, this shows how a diary is used to take in all the individual sees from their perspective. Enjoy! 

Pebble$ 


I hope to open your eyes
For everything that could have gone blurry
For all the days it could have proved to be true 
They're happy. They have freedom
Dear diary they have freedom
They have happiness, 
Where their frights take flight and their worries are carried away on 
lorries

Red lorry, Yellow lorry, Blue lorry, Green !
They have lullabies diary 
Dear diary they have lorries, they have no worries
Dear diary they have no worries
They are free, they are good
Dear diary they sit and they sink
Dear diary they sit and they sink

Dear diary they have worries, they have worries 
Dear diary they have worries 
No longer taken on red lorries yellow lorries 
No lorries more
They are great people but they do not know how to comprehend
Dear diary they do not know how to comprehend
They go on with the motive, let's do this 
Let's do this!!
Dear diary they say let's do this

They are driven, constructive no space for destruction
Dear diary you hear that, they have no space for destruction
Nor corruption, nothing to corrupt the SoundCloud or the hard drive
Dear diary they are alone

They are alone dear diary
Dear diary they are alone ..

Hope Is Here




You see all the chains that try to bind you 
Thinking how you're going to break loose 


Everything seems to be locking you down 
In this trial we will have tears and, sorrows 

But eventually smiles and freedom will come

Times made you feel you couldn't carry on 
Those that surrounded you filled with so much negativity 
Best thing to do was break away 
Where the spirit of the Lord is 


Evil does not prevail


His presence and guidance is what kept you 
Light the torch and keep running with it 
Though the pains of life, may get you down 


                 The love of God, will keep you standing 
                His guidance, his favor will give you strength
               It's the way he shows mercy that will amaze you 
             None can love you like him, 
            A love that gives despite your wrong 

                                                                       When hope is lost, and the storms of life rage 

                                                                           It is in him our souls find peace 
                                                                    Faith is the main key at times to unlock the blessings untold 
                                                              With a word that shows us nothing less than the truth

August Is Here !


Hellur y'all and welcome to this 8th month of the year; so, so, so .. 


I wish you a successful and fruitful month ahead but instead of all the sweetness this post I would love you all to reflect on your year thus far. Is there anything that you stated on that hypocritic list of resolutions that you have not yet achieved; if you have successfully completed anything make yourself feel good and check it off your list. For those things which have not yet been achieved, ask yourself why they have not yet been completed, if you know why - sort it out !

If you feel that what remains on your list is not enough, why not add some other things to your list to challenge yourself to complete or accomplish by the end of 2013. Everyday should be a day to put yourself in check, if you cannot place your 
finger on one thing that you had achieved that day then you have a problem to solve, to ensure that tomorrow is different. The only person that can truly challenge or outdo you is yourself; if you don't the world will overtake and leave you behind in your unproductivity.

As my lovely and devoted readers if I'm moving forward you all have to be moving forward with me. My success is your success, my talent is your gift to enjoy, my knowledge is your knowledge and my wisdom is your wisdom gained. So if you don't usually know how to challenge yourself; today I challenge you to do something you wanted to do or that you have never done before.  

Write at least 5 things you'll do by the end of this month or by the end of 2013. Here are my 5:

1. I will find a way to be more comfortable with my world .. but not conforming to it.

2. I want all of my readers, YOU to feel free to leave comments even if they are anonymous. 

3. Getting merchandize produced for my readers and listeners.

4. Organize all the old literature, art and work that I have found in my archives.

5. I want to reach 10,000 hits (Blogger), 80 likes (Facebook page), 50 follows (Google+) and more shares on my content. 


Additionally, if you have younger siblings, nieces, nephews, kids, grandkids, cousins etc. feel free to share my Blog with them as my blog is for everyone, there are no restrictions. In my expression as an artist and poet I refrain from using anything vulgar in my posts; if the younger generations have any suggestions for me please feel free to comment for them, let them comment anonymously or otherwise feel free to get in touch with me at the following;




IF YOU WANT TO CONTACT ME PERSONALLY JUST SET THE PRIVACY BETWEEN ME & YOU ..

Peace out, have a great month .. Challenge yourself !
