Manifesting Your Gift
Turn your gift into your calling. Discover the meaning of self manifestation. What you want is on the other side of hard. Manifesting Your Gift If there’s a silver lining to bad or hard times it is this, “When facing server challenges your mind is normally at it’s sharpest.” When you’re under the biggest pressure that is when your mind is at it’s sharpest. Human’s have seldom created anything…

Guilty Confessions
I held on to this far too long. I have to release it in order to move on. Especially, before I close my eyes… Behind everyone’s life is a mind altering journey, a motivational experience and a physical adventure. Everyone will experience all three. It shapes and defines us as it unfold. It reveals our personal history. It constitutes our obligation to share our gift and to fulfill our…

Confessions of A Single Man: The Life
Confessions of A Single Man: The Life
I’ve been around it all my life. At least most of my childhood. Growing up in the hood, it was part of a typical daily routine in the uncompromising urban city streets to step in or over dog shit, urine, and broken crack pipes while avoiding dead stray cats my friend Carly killed in a project basement across the street where I lived. Leaping over piled up neglected garbage and drug addict’s vomit…

Relationships & Swallow Minded People
Your location is not your destination. The most valuable aspect in every relationship is having the ability to relate. Do the people you currently have in your circle relate to you? If not, why do you allow them on your ship to your destination? Your ship is constructed to travel across the 7 seas which consist of rough and deep water.
Relationships & Swallow Minded People Shallow minded people can’t have deep conversations. They’re not built for the rough times ahead. They can’t swim the distance that is necessary for survival. Shallow minded people can’t grow nor go with you into the deep waters of success even if you provide them with a life preserver. Shallow minded people are not equipped to sustain the relationship when a storm arise. They drown in the mist of your presence and they will only resent you and hold you back from obtaining your destination. In short, it’s impossible for them to relate let alone comprehend.
Relationships & Swallow Minded People
The pursuit of happiness lies within your dreams to your destination. It’s a lonely, scary, solitary and dangerous pursuit. You can’t wait for someone to think you can do it. You have to believe in yourself and just do it. You have to be willing to risk everything to become the seed of what you believe.
Relationships & Swallow Minded People
The objective in life is always to elevate your mind, body and your total being each and every day along with those you keep around you. This is what we call, real talk. Not everyone in your circle can go with you to the White House. I mean no disrespect, but many of them have to be left at the port before your ship sails into the sunset or take flight under the moonlight.
Relationships & Swallow Minded People
There’s a saying I use and believe in, “Dress to kill instead of dressing to be killed. The choice is yours.”  Adapt or die. “Adapt to rapid change better than your competitors and you can make tremendous strides; ignore rapidly changing circumstances and expect to go the way of the dinosaur.”

It doesn’t matter if he or she are the sun, moon and stars which make your personal world rotate. You will never be good enough for the wrong person. Even in your absolute best you’ll still not be good enough. However, at your worst, you’ll still be worth it to the right person. Love is key and it must be the driving force in your relationship.
When Choosing The Wrong Person
Key factors which reveal the real you and your partner. 
Alcohol:
Add this to your checklist. Some call it, “Spilling the beans”. Alcohol is a truth serum. You should want to see the person of your interest in their best/worst behavior while under the influence. This allows you to quietly observe your significant other or your poor choice of character as they sip away and making a fool l out of themselves. Free drinks tell the entire story.  Knowing your limit, is priceless. It displays what’s to come and what your future will entail. It’s also can be viewed as a tell all sign of what may and may not come into fruition. 
Alcohol has a way of revealing a person’s true nature. Some of the things that will spill out of their mouths can save you a lifetime of misery. For the most part, whenever a person abuse any type of a drug there’s an existing form of depression secretly concealed and often revealing themselves. When their defenses are down sit back and view them with a helicopter point of view of the subject and watch the fireworks begin. Stand back to avoid the repeated splash. Also, have plenty of water and breath mints because the party has just begun. Also, when the mints don’t work, try a bottle of Listerine.  Just tell them not to spit it out too fast. Instead, tell them to let it sit in their mouth for a good two minutes, if not three. if they swallow it that’s even better. Keep in mind, this method works both ways. If you have anything to hide you may want to re-frame from drinking. 
Drinking on an empty stomach is not a great chess move. 
Drinking and depression doesn’t mix. It only escalate the problem.  
Drinking and driving comes with a price tag or a toe tag. 
When Choosing The Wrong Person
Anger: 
Run, as if your life depends on it. Anger equals danger. Don’t waste anytime, the sooner the better, especially if you don’t have time to waste. You don’t want to wait and discover 5 years later that your hubby has unresolved issues. You should want to know how a person manages and deals with a crisis well before you get deeply involved. You should want to know if they are built for the next 20/40 years. 
Are they fair, diplomatic and reasonable in their decision making? Or, are they compulsive, cunning, deceitful and conniving? Are they playing with a loaded deck of cards? Are you the type of person who’s quick to jump into relationships before respectfully examining your damaged fruit? You can’t afford to misinterpret what’s glaring directly in your face. All the signs, signals and symbols are present. At all cost you must see whom is truly standing before you. Sometimes you have to push the right buttons to reveal your knight in shining armor or uncover what could be your frog of a worst nightmare, ever.  
A “Knight in Shinning Armor” is a metaphor. It’s a fantasy/fairy tale like Sleeping Beauty, Snow White & Peter Pan. They don’t exist. You should want a person who’s passionate, loving, kind, brave, thoughtful and considerate.  
If you like pain, torture, or simply getting your head bashed in by all means let me step to the side. Call it love if you want. You may want to stop reading this and seek professional help instead. 
When Choosing The Wrong Person
Money:
Micro managing? Is there someone recounting the money you’ve already counted? Are you feeling cheap or short changed? Does mommy dress you after she dresses herself? Do you choose your own socks, even? I’m just saying because, um. Well, never mind. You don’t have to answer the last question.   
Do you have a person in your life that use money to mask their shortcomings? Are they an obnoxious butt-hole whose full of themselves? Are they flashy, loud and boisterous? Do they spend needlessly?  Are they king of the campus? Do you like the attention? Do they drive fancy two door cars, two door trucks or live in a huge house that compensates something else? Do they spend wisely or are they careless with their money? Money has a way of exposing the worst and revealing the best of a person. What is their attitude like when they have money and what are they like when they don’t have any money?  
Always have your own money. Never rely on anyone to do for you which you should be doing for yourself. 
Two door vehicles screams, “I don’t have room for any kids that aren’t mine”.
Your car note is your car note. Your lease is in your name. Nobody should be responsible for anything that is in your name, but you because that’s your responsibility. 
When Choosing The Wrong Person
Denial:
Some people like to see other people squirm. Other’s may find it amusing to play mind games. Any form of abuse is not love, it’s actually the opposite. There’s no need to shake your head in denial. We should ask ourselves a few questions.
Are they a good listener? Are they grateful and appreciative or are they selfish, pigheaded and a natural pain in your backside? Do they actually hear and grasp all you’re saying to them? All the telling signs are right in our face but we tend to look the other way.  Sometimes we hold on to things and people whom aren’t holding on to us. Living in a fantasy world, fronting as if, when they’re not. Many of us are dreamers who are full of wishful thinking. Some of us force circles in square holes. Denial is not a river in Egypt. Failing to smell the awesome aroma of coffee even when it’s right under your nose can be nauseating, to say the least. 
When Choosing The Wrong Person
Your Lowest Point: 
How a person treats you while you’re at your lowest point in life is paramount. 
During the rough, suck and tough times never hang your head low for any long stint of time. We must get back on top of the bull and keep a united front. There’s no need to wear our hearts on our sleeve. You know who you are. You know exactly what you bring to the table. You shouldn’t have to prove yourself to any of your doubters. How your trusted loved one treats you during the hard times or when your down is not only important but it’s very telling. You should key into this factor. There’s no excuse for being demeaning, or mentally placing one’s foot on the back of your neck while you’re down and in need of support. 
Tough times don’t last, tough people do.
Pick yourself up from off the ground and dust yourself off.
There may not be an “I” in “team” but there’s two in “winning”.

Pulling Yourself Up By Your Own Boot Straps
Information breeds confidence. Silence breeds fear.
Pulling Yourself Up By Your Own Boot Straps A person said to me, “I feel comfortable asking you this and if I’m out of line please tell me. As other ethnic groups have come to this country with only the shirts on their backs and managed to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps why can’t your people do the same?” I looked at her, smiled and replied, “The reason why some Black people fail to pull themselves up from their own boot straps is because someone has stolen their boots. I added, “If anyone can pull themselves up by their own bootstraps without having any boots then they’ve just preformed a miracle greater than A Miracle on 34th street, and it should be televised immediately.” She looked me and said, “You’re so silly. If you didn’t know just say so.” I said, “If you didn’t get it then you’ve been misinformed. Your people stole everything, including our mind along with our boots.” Education comes from out the mist of struggle. When you’re educated during a struggle you’re educated with a new reality.

Beware of Falling In Love…
Never fall in love with anything or anyone that doesn’t belong to you. Especially your degree, your experience, your day job, your life, your career or even your wife. Things and people (nouns) are always subject to change.
Beware of Falling In Love…
Beware in falling in love with your title. You weren’t born with it. Never be too full of yourself where you can’t see who or what is actually standing before you. What you have today isn’t promised tomorrow. Change is constant. Change is necessary. I’m here to tell you, your coffee has arrived. You may want to take it Black. Cream will only make you dream. Stay woke or be broke.
Beware of Falling In Love… You can’t see the forest for the tree. Be prepared when shit happens especially should you lose your income. Be open to take on new and challenging career options which are foreign to you. It’s about putting and keeping food on the table. Your family shouldn’t have to wait to eat. Never play yourself and stay in your lane. Swerving is prohibited. Don’t let the cheese slide all the way off your biscuit. Trust me when I tell you-you will not like the aftermath.

The Arrival of A Dream
The Arrival of A Dream
Lights, Cameras, Action…
Tumblr media
The Arrival of A Dream It’s 34th street, Madison Square Garden. The traffic on 7th and 8th avenue is thick and heavy. The main attraction and entourage has entered the building. The vibe inside the arena feels intense and full of electric. The energy creates a buzz which puts you in the mind of being inside a bee hive. The intensity is building and bubbling to a point…

Welcome to the “New World” where reality has arrived and smacked you in the face as if you stole something.
 Surprise you’ll be, should you ever uncover then discover the diabolical genius of the devil who’s actually god wearing a ski mask. As the tables turn you then finally learn everything you were told was a lie.
The Invisible Invader
The Final Stages Of Mutation
The process of the new norm is almost complete. The reconstruction of a better hamster wheel is in vogue. The United Nations has been dissolved and evaporated. The implementation of a global government has taken shape. Social distancing equates to social distress. The silent game changer has the ball in its spores. The transformation of the final product has begun. Panic and hysteria run rampant in the streets across the globe. The death toll for the infected has spiked and is at an all time high (7 million globally and climbing). 
From the unemployed including the mental health and the homeless sector to the on-call tail wagging, (cash app) slurp & burp foundation, the numbers will only continue to grow.  The main population of concern on a global scale are the unattended, the forgotten, the untreated and the uninsured. Many of them sleep above and below the earths surface. They travel like nomads and go unnoticed when crossing borders, state and county lines. Some, will use public restrooms while others will relieve themselves in public without washing their hands along with no toilet paper insight.
They play, dwell and shop for 5 finger discount specials in your local stores, school yards, parks, garbage dumpsters and playgrounds during the day and far into the night. For some, turnstile hooping has become a musical event and a obstacle course should the police ever give chase. The infected ride the subway, airplanes, trolley cars, taxi and private line buses. The threat is real. The wishful and foolish thinking don’t take this matter seriously. They continue to gather in small or large groups thinking it can’t happen to them. Time will tell, especially when they gather together to say their final goodbye. 
Meanwhile, indigents find themselves rolling the dice and stray off from the crowd to tough it out on their own. Collectively, we all are fighting for survival. It has become a doggy dog world. Every man, woman and child fending for themselves until the end. It’s not a dream, it’s a global nightmare at its best. It’s similar to an unbelievable movie. It’s like some Mission Impossible Tom Cruise type of shit. I’m talking about life inside Knuckle City where the days and nights aren’t so bright and nothing is pretty or high sadity. The comfort of life is no longer what it use to be. Those days are forever, gone.
The Invisible Invader
Let’s be clear, never bet against the virus.
A dark cloud hovers over the world. Like an airplane as it touch down on a runway the process of a new way of life has landed. An updated “tracking chip” has been successfully implanted. The persuasion for inoculation of the herd, has been achieved. The prison system and the private sector are all on board. However, there are many who stand firm against change and believe in the right and the fight for refutational preemption. Former civilians who escape capture go in hiding either into the hills or deep underground to create a more natural (holistic medicine) resistance for tomorrow’s future.
Until further notice, drinking Clorox is not the answer for this dilemma. The genie is out of the bottle and it’s becoming hard to breath. Women in the street are on their knees crying because their babies are dying. People are trying to wrap their heads around the madness. Men are out of work, rent is over due and the child support system is looking for their slice from your pie. Our heart breaks from the ache. The stress alone puts many of us six feet under. The entire ordeal scars you for life. It forces you to reach deep down inside yourself to discover the gift that’s within. This smells like a recipe for the apocalypse with a side order of cocoa bread with extra cheese. A once hot economy now turns into ice. Planes, buildings and everything on the ground is on fire. People in the street screaming, running in panic and out of desperation. It’s as if the world is coming to an end. What have we learned from this experience?
The Invisible Invader
Animals such as dogs and cats that travel outside can bring inside an unwanted visitor such as the incredible invisible invader. It will hitch a ride and can travel in their hair and on the bottom of their paws. It can be hidden in their stool. Your pets sit and lay on house furniture and jump on your bed to stretch out and fall asleep. Some wipe their butts on your carpet and bed spread. You walk on the same carpet and track it throughout the entire house/apartment. Cleaning your pets properly is mandatory. The streets, sidewalks and many public/private places remain filthy. Who is responsible to govern and properly clean them? Why hasn’t this been done? Population control comes to mind.
The Invisible Invader
 Some people portray themselves one way during the day only to transform into someone or something else during the twilight of the night. Those who wear a white or blue lab coat while working may have an assignment to cure diseases. Other people who wear the same attire may have an entirely different agenda.
What is the cost to create part-time jobs to train and properly (disinfect) clean, scrub the parks, playgrounds, streets, schools, subways, airports, bus stops, office buildings and homes? 
The Invisible Invader
This is history stuck on repeat. When will many of us wake up and learn from the lesson(s) from the past?  There’s no such thing of a magic bullet. Health officials knew back in December this was coming. The late response isn’t acceptable. Watching refrigerated trucks deliver and store deluxe size refrigerator coffins shipped to hospitals only to stack and pack the bodies is very telling. Hospitals are experiencing a shortage of medical supplies like ventilators and personal protective equipment. Some people have to remind themselves we are living in a first world country; one who leads the pack. Let’s rewind the clock and take a closer look.
Phase 1: The Outbreak (70 days ago) 
Effective fitness… It’s order-less and unseen to the naked eye. It quickly spreads from people to people at a rate never experienced before in the history of man and his kind. This invisible invader can live on surfaces from 2 days to close to 25 days, depending upon environmental conditions.
Those whom are asthmatic, suffer from HIV, cancer or have type 2 diabetes are in danger the most. Many people who don’t have medical insurance are ass out and up shits creek without a paddle.  Respiratory droplets are produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. The virus is airborne. It can live on the floor and on most surfaces for days and possibly for weeks. Social distancing of 6 feet to 33 feet may not be enough especially should the wind current dictate its reach. Toilet seats are not safe. The invader has the ability to infiltrate through feces and diarrhea. It also attacks the gastrointestinal tract, heart, liver and kidney leading to organ failure. Research study has found the virus in semen.  
The Invisible Invader
Phase 2: The Smokescreen (68 days ago)
It’s the year of the elections and the poles are open. The people have turned out in droves. Citizens in outrage, they demand a change and are eager to cast their vote. A new President is in sight. But wait, there’s something else just beyond the horizon.
A news flash has been posted on the bottom of a television screen about a virus outbreak. All election poles have been temporarily closed. A 30 day quarantine has been enforced for the safety of the population. The government has ordered the shut down of commercial and private businesses. 
The Invisible Invader
Phase 3: Global Pandemic (Present day)
The quarantine restriction has been extended. Sadly, there isn’t a vaccine at the present time to alleviate such a pandemic. Major corporations fold, close shop and file for bankruptcy. Many small businesses have been hit the hardest and fail to survive the aftermath. Massive lay-offs affect the entire globe. Unemployment claims are at an all time high. Wall Street, stock prices spiral and plummet. Corona Beer stock prices surge upward. Many corporations  benefit and save money from having selective employees work from home. Eliminating the use and the need for office space has been a tremendous upside. Door Dash and Uber Eats profits sky rocket. 
The Invisible Invader
Phase 4: Curfew & Quarantine Status 
The cause & effect. A divide exist among the haves and the have-not. Stock annalist fear a crash is near.  The American economy suffers another critical hit which threatens to send the nation back into the days of the Great Depression in epic proportions. Empty sounds of static occupy the airwaves.  Wireless devices and flat screen televisions across the nation are in the dark (Picture-less).  Broadcast stations, radio and television networks haven’t transmitted a broadcast signal in three days.  April, May, June and July’s rent is past due as August quickly approaches.  Protesters march to voice their opinion as rioters and looters look to take advantage of the given situation.  Rioting becomes the language of the voiceless and the unheard.  The stress builds when there’s no jobs, no vaccine, police brutality which often lead to murder which ultimately builds a bridge to civil unrest. 
The Invisible Invader
Inside random apartments, arguments can be heard from residents living upstairs, downstairs and next door. The view outside of a complex window reveal people fighting and cursing at one another using colorful metaphors of expression. Their threats become more vile as heads begin to butt with vivid visual animation. The scene must have been taken straight out of a cartoon. A reign of terror has dropped down on the heads of the unexpected like an anvil. The rage outside begins to bubble, boil and spill over. Terrifying screams from people being accosted, accompanied with fear spread throughout the city streets. Citizens barricade themselves inside their homes armed with enough firepower to supply a small army brigade.
The Invisible Invader
Bio-germ warfare. In this case, it’s airborne, odorless and invisible to the naked eye. It invades your space unbeknownst to the host.  Like cancer, it takes over your body.  Unlike cancer it will accelerate and terminate your existence at a faster rate. 
Every noun occupies space. In the mind of others, a depopulation agenda occupies space and has moved-in next door along with the means to carryout it’s hidden agenda. The agenda can be found inside or around our local schools, place of worship, movie theaters, supermarkets, shopping malls, playgrounds and workplace.  What’s on the surface may not attract your attention or stand out to the naked eye. What’s beneath the surface will eventually rise to the top and make it’s presents felt. The seen and the unseen can be one of the same. It could be standing or floating right in front of you, later introducing itself at a later date, in, around and above a local community near you.
No more trips to Africa to test a new vaccine. Why not try something different and go to France or Germany and spearhead a experimental campaign of a new drug on that population? Compassion should be the gasoline that fuels the light which guides us as we travel down the rabbit hole. Where’s the compassion for humanity? Don’t answer that last question. 
The Invisible Invader
This journey has a way of leading us all into calamity and ruin. We pray for a story of triumph after a storm of tragedy.
It went on deaf ears when, we were warned years ago of a possible virus outbreak. Today, a pandemic is on our front porch. This is not a movie on Netflix, HBO or Showtime. This shit is real. Standing six feet from each other (social distancing) is better than being buried six feet underground.
The blue or red tape on the floor is not to be ignored. The hand sanitizer on the wall is for our collective safety. Just don’t kill the good bacteria. It would be better to wash your hands oppose to being and protect yourself by wearing a mask, instead of being placed inside of a huge refrigerator with other dead bodies. The time has come to finally wake up. You’re not dreaming. You are here and living in the present instead of living in the hereafter. You are needed to fall in line and possibly make a difference.

When the right information lead towards the proper education to weather the blinding desert storm which clouds our vision.
A Diary of A Single Man: Paying It Forward
“Lunch is for wimps”
When I graduated from high school, entered college and became aware of the fact that I had been mis-educated, I began to assume the responsibility for reeducating myself.
After we seek out and obtain a higher education some people fail to realize and reveal the fact when we obtain a Bachelors, Masters and PhD we’ve actually passed the test to acquire another persons point of view or philosophy. We spend hundreds and owe thousands of dollars and brag about obtaining the ruling class mindset. To ensure and to secure the main objective of the hamster wheel. Skinner’s box is real. Just as some of us wear the mask because we have to. While others, can’t wait to put on the mask. 
Every person has two forms of education. One is the one that is given to him/her. The other, which he gives to himself. The latter is by far the most sufficient because everything that is important to a person(s) life is that which they must seek out for themselves. It constitutes their real education. So it is all right to get the paper so that you can go out into society and do things. Just don’t think that-that paper (That Degree) is your passport to success.

A Diary of A Single Man: Paying It Forward
Education and travel is key. Education is not confined to the four walls of any college. Many great people have made major contributions to the world without ever placing a single foot inside any university. To travel and to witness how other people around the world live is extremely important. The objective is to place ourselves in the position to better understand and to communicate with the entire world.
We have an obligation and a responsibility to see to it that we put into our minds, put into our conciseness, put into our spirit, knowledge of our History, knowledge of our Culture, our Ancestors and our Creator. So that we can exist within this society and keep our sanity as we continue to build a better place for those that come behind us. That is our obligation. That is our responsibility. 
The goal is to pay it forward; to unlock and to change the mind of a Frankenstein. To make him/her think differently. To make them see what they once only looked upon. Have you ever heard the worn out clique, “You can lead the horse to the water but you can’t make it drink?” What if you fed it some crackers to make it thirsty? What if you ride it hard to the water? I bet it will drink. Have you heard the clique, “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?” The answer is neither because a cell came first before both of them. Don’t allow people to limit you to limited choices. A or B when in fact, C and D exist. Challenge the worn out clique. Stimulate the mind of others. Examine the root of the tree. For it is feminine by nature. Every time you look at your navel you see your connection your mother. Your not missing a rib. All life points to a feminine origin. From molecules to cells to mineral, to vegetable to insects to animal to humans. When you examine the Bee kingdom the Queen is the center of its base. The same for the Ant Kingdom. In the Lion Kingdom if the female lion doesn’t go out and hunt the pride doesn’t eat. The oldest bones discovered are bones of a woman. Some 3.6 million years old. Think about how deep that is and how it translate.

A Diary of A Single Man: Paying It Forward
It’s easy to pay it forward to a loved one, friend or family member. To truly pay it forward is to give to someone you don’t know.  To give to a person you have no reason to give to and hold them accountable to do the same. This is one of the best ways to reaching the entire globe than just being local. To be international rather than domestic. Touch someone in a way they can’t keep it to themselves. They have to share it. Keep in mind the world is watching. You know the saying, “The streets is always watching”. They watch for the good and for the bad. There’s young people watching you every day. Some of them are secretly looking up to you. Some are inspired by you. Yes, others despise you and they look at you. Some people who live in impoverish communities live in the dark. They live and dwell in pain and how they express themselves is by conflicting pain unto to others. Frankenstein does how Frankenstein thinks.
Dress to impress and keep in mind some of us are tied to a group that are considered to be a permanent underclass. Chose to dress to kill instead of dress to be killed. Now let that set in for a minute or two. To hide in plain sight. To never let them see you coming. Master the edge. Give yourself the best chance possible. Life unfolds very slowly and we must pay attention and guard against from repeating our collective mistakes of the past. 
Never educate a wolf, a fox or a snake. For that wolf, fox and snake will sprout wings and grow feet. Lastly, whenever a noun; A person, place or thing doesn’t appreciate all that you bring (to the table) take your gift(s) and talent elsewhere and make a difference. Don’t you ever hesitate to plot your course. Always see beyond the sand. 
Harlem,
  Heaven is at the foot of Mother…

Feeling down, tired or worthless?
Self medication may start off as recreational but then it gets real when depression sets in.
We start to depend on the substance while dealing with life and its consequences.

Diary of A Single Man: It, Be Calling Me
(Somber music softly play in the background with a dark voice-over)
“Sometimes I creep.  It’s mainly at night when I can’t fall asleep. I hear a faint voice In my head which I’m familiar with.
Deep down, I know who it be.  It’s “Ole Girl” standing over me in the middle of the street, with her broken wrist dangling for all to see.
There’s no doubt in my mind it be she, who be callin’ me and won’t let me sleep.”

Diary of A Single Man: It, Be Calling Me
(Chorus)
I’m too cool for school. I have it all under control. I can’t help myself. It, be callin’ me. I go crazy when I can’t find it. My hit. Where is it?
Flyin’ higher than Delta in the friendly sky. Walkin’ high, feet never touching the ground, In this shameless ghetto of a city called, Harlem. 
(Verse 1)
Sometimes, I just lose myself and glide through the clouds like a Boeing 757.
Unemployment & sickness run rampant. People hangin’ and mopin’ around without a cure.
The sickness. Oh my, to all the sickness. The natives are becoming restless, exhausted and strung-out.
(Mother please be there to greet me)
Sleeping in the city streets. Some never waking up. Portable housing; life on the iron horse. Experiencing and missing the ultimate sacrifice.

(Verse 2)
Dwelling in the dangerous palace of lights. Danger lurking on every street corner especially at night. One day it’s all going to catch up to me. If I run, if I hide, maybe I’ll have a chance to decide. 
Sacred money makes no money but in retrospect it becomes an afterthought because I don’t have the time to invest.
(Will she find me?)
I’m too stupid to be afraid. This life is going to consume me.
I can feel it when I hear it. She, be calling me.
I’m foolish in thinking I can control the urge.

(Verse 3)
Early in the morning, I’ll do it all over again. Holding that glass $ick in my hands became my best friend. As soon as the cloud disappears, It sucks me back in and then she reappears.
My very faithful girlfriend. We’re friends til the end.
She just stands there and keep calling until I anwser. At night her sweet voice doesn’t stop tempting me. All the pain that she bring. I’m never able to keep nice things.
The pain, oh baby the pain I’m feeling. 
(Verse 4)
I’ve seen nothing but trouble baby. Nobody but you really understand, me lady. No, they don’t get it. So I go to that place where that good ole feelin’ awaits.
Idol worshiping. Self-destruction in my hands. I’m hooked my friend, to the boy who made slaves out of men that worship him. Women who sell their souls also find their light to be dim.
Please believe me when I tell you.
I’m flyin’ higher than Delta in the friendly sky. That’s right baby, I’m flyin’ high.

Happy 420…
Welcome to my world.
There’s no turning back.
Hopefully, I’ll see you there, my dear. 
At the same place and at the same time.
Turn on that blue light for me.
You won’t need that red dress tonight.

Inside The Mind Of: A Cloud of Smoke
That’s my girl This my world That’s my wife She’s the important Structure in my life
That’s all I need in my life Just peace No strife No drama No bullshit Just weed as my wife
She totally understands me She doesn’t get pissed off at me When I’m playing XBox or PlayStation She knows that I’m home because She’s sitting right next to me She gets me We understand each other She compliments my weaknesses She amplifies my strengths She offers me food for thought She doesn’t order selfish meals She’s always thinking about my pocket instead of turning them inside out
I’m well rested I can finally breathe At night She loves me good She treats me right She holds me tight She don’t be askin’ me fo shyt She doesn’t pressure me For real dumb shyt She strokes my ego Let’s me put my feet up She already knows I don’t need that kind of shyt She lets me do what I wanta do Just as long I don’t stay away From home I’m stress free
She believes in me She holds me when I need her Every day and especially at night She rocks me fast To sleep She’s there’s in The morning light And talks to me Not at me She never Tells me no

I use to joke about it but I called weed my girlfriend. She never let me down but was never around if I didn’t have any money. I would say I didn’t need anyone just the weed. She talks to me and understands me like no other. I close out everyone and would be most happy in a cloud of smoke. I would work 2 jobs for her and I’d take the shortcut route home just to touch her butt. She calls me every day, never complaining about dumb shit. She’s always there for me to help me sleep. I love her and she loves me.
Daddy discovered the hidden needle in the haystack therefore, he never claimed me. For some reason I was never bitter. I knew someday I would understand. He did the best thing ever by giving me life. The rest was up to me to uncover a better plan. I’m his constant reflection in my mother’s sore eyesight. I just chose a different path in this life.
Happy 420 to me, my lonely life and my wife.
