East

Stuck starring at the time

Waiting for that golden Sun to rise

As time passes, I fall asleep

Wheels turning we're heading East. 

 

All I'm saying is that I wonder

Whats a storm without its thunder? 

And if you're blind what do you dream  

Why are the wealthy filled with greed? 

 

Stop starring at your face

The one that's painted on this blank white page

The door closes and the blinds are shut

Making love was not enough

 

All I'm saying is that I wonder.

Whats a storm without its thunder? 

And if you're blind what do you dream  

Why are the wealthy filled with greed? 

Make a promise, just to break it

Fall in love, but you don't make it

Why do I pay social security

Thats money that I'll never see.  

 

 

"Wifi is a basic human right."

I'm the type of person who constantly is self reflecting on what really matter in this sphere of existence. I often think about what priorities here in first world cultures and how it differs from 3rd world.

I actually said the statement "Wifi should be a basic human right to the homie Richie @Deladeso out of my own frustration with not being able to stay "connected." 

After the  fact I realized I was complaining about something that reflects first world perspective. Doesn't mean it's right or wrong but definitely worth in hind sight has humbled me. I started to wonder what other countries basic human rights consist of or what they may think should be basic human rights.  

From my experience in Mexico, El Salvador and Cuba, I realized that their basic human rights sat on the end of values vs. tangible things.

They appreciate just living and breathing. They have nothing, yet everything and don't think twice about offering the little tangible things as signs of hospitality.

I highly respect this kind of existence and one word comes to mind when I about what I can learn, selflessness.

Thoughts become things.

When I get worried or too stressed out about things not manifesting in the way I had orinally thought, I think the best thing to do is to roll a joint, get on a level and get creative. Let go of any expectations and going with the flow allows opportunities to present themselves. It's a simple as reframing your thoughts to become the things you want, not the things you don't. 

 

 

 

 

             

Life as it is.

 

 

                Anyone taking the time to read these entries as they ebb and flow from my brain, I truly appreciate you and your interest in my thoughts. I think that sharing through text seems to carry a bit more intimacy and depth. It allows room for imagination and helps to organically build a vision of how others perceive who I am. Also, I want to give those who are following along this journey something permanent to reference in order to live 'life as it is.'
