WORDS!

Your voice, your words are the power that can change everything

WORDS!

BE THEY SPOKEN

 BE THEY WRITTEN

 BE THEY RECORDED IT IS BY WORDS THAT WE ELEVATE OR DEMOTE

 IT IS BY WORDS WE ENVISION OR REMAIN BLIND

IT IS BY WORDS WE REACH OR STAY STAGNANT

REFLECTING ON WORDS AND THE POWER THEY HAVE, YES AGAIN, WORDS HAVE POWER!

I WRITE ALL THE TIME FOR SURVIVAL

 I WRITE TO INSPIRE

 I WRITE TO MOTIVATE

 I WRITE TO FIND DIRECTION

 I WRITE BECAUSE I CAN’T SPEAK THE WORDS BUT I CAN GO INWARDLY AND PUT THEM ON PAPER.

I AM NOT A SPOKEN WORD ARTIST, I DON’T HAVE THAT GIFT BUT I WILL WIELD AND WALTZ WITH A PEN THO……

WORDS!

BEFORE AN EDUCATOR COMES INTO THE INNER CITY BLACK SCHOOL SYSTEMS THROUGHOUTH AMERICA, THEY ARE GIVEN SOMETHING THAT WILL SCARE THE CRAP OUT OF ANYONE…….

THEY ARE GIVEN A “WELCOME” PACKET AND IN IT, THEY WILL FIND REFERRAL FORMS FULL OF WORDS THAT CAN BE FOUND ON LAW ENFORCEMENT SHEETS DESCRIBING CHILDREN THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN AND DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BUT NOW, HAVE PREJUDICES AGAINST.

FOR ME, THE FIRST INSTINCT IS NOT TO BURN THAT MOFO UP BUT ONCE ONE SCAN IT AND THEN BEGIN TO MENTALLY ENVISION WHY YOU WILL SEE WORDS AS SUCH AS BUT NOT LIMITED TO…..

DEFIANT, RUDE, DISRESPECTFUL, CONFRONTATIONAL, RESISTANT, OBSTINANT, UNCOOPERATIVE, NONCOMPLIANT, OBSTREPEROUS, TRUCULENT, DISSENTING, CONDESENTING, DISOBEDIENT, INSUBORDINATE, REBELLIOUS, FEISTY, UNRULY, DISORDERLY, ROWDY, WILD, UNIMANAGEABLE, UNTAMEABLE, UNCONTROLLABLE, ILL BEHAVED, LAW BREAKERS, DIFFICULT TO HANDLE, UNDISCIPLINED, WILLFUL, HEADSTRONG, IRREPRESSIBLE, INTRACTABLE, DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS, INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE, PROPERTY MISUSE, VANDALISM, FORGERY, UNRULY, DIFFICULT, UNRESTRAINABLE, DISRUPTIVE, RIOTOUS, TURBULENT, UPROARIOUS, BOISTEROUS, NOISY, LOUD, CLAMOROUS, RAMBUNCTIONS, TARDY, TECHNOLOGY VIOLATIONS, ARSONIST, ABUSIVE LANGUAGE, INAPPROPRIATE LANGUAGE, FIGHTING, GANGS AFFILIATION DISPLAY, HARASSMENT, BULLYING, INAPROPRIATE DISPLAY OF AFFECTION, LYING, CHEATING, INAPROPRIATE LOCATION, PHYSICAL AGRESSION, PROPERTY DAMAGE, SKIPPING CLASSES, TRUANCY, USEAGE OR POSESSION OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCCO, COMPUSTABLES, WEAPONS, DRUGS

O, THESE THINGS MAY BE ON POINT BUT THEY LEAVE OUT…..

THEY DIDN’T EAT

THEY ARE AFRAID OF THE ADULTS

THEY ARE BEING ABUSED

THEY ARE BEING NEGLECTED

THEY HAD FOOD BUT IT WAS JUST SOMETHING TO SETTLE THEIR STOMACHS UNTIL THEY GOT TO SCHOOL

THEIR MOM/DAD/GRANDMOTHER DIED OF SOME PERVENTABLE DISEASE AND OVER NIGHT THEIR LIVES CHANGED WITH NO PREPARATION

THEY RESIDE WITH THEIR AUNTS, UNCLES, AND COUSINS BECAUSE IT WAS TOO HARD FOR THEIR PARENTS

THEY WAS WITH THEIR FRIENDS WHEN THEY WERE KILLED AND WELL, THE SCHOOLS CUT THE NECESSARY CLINICIANS TO ASSIST THEM IN DEALING WITH THESE PTSD (POLY TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDERS) THAT THEY ARE JUST ACCUSTOMED TO FACING

THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR YOUNGER SIBLING THAT THEY PROTECT FROM THE FAMILY PREDATOR

THEY STAYED UP ALL NIGHT PROTECTING, AND LOOKING OUT AFTER THEIR YOUNGER SIBLINGS MAKING SURE THAT THEY WERE NOT ONLY SAFE BUT THAT THEIR HOMEWORK WAS DONE AND THEY MADE SURE THEY WERE FED

THEY ARE TRYING TO FIND A JOB

THEY WORKED ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT SO THEY WON’T BE A BURDEN ON THEIR ALREADY IMPOVERISHED SENIOR FAMILY MEMBERS

THEY ARE DEALT POVERTY

THEY RESIDE IN HOMES FULL OF ASBESTOS AND LEAD AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT LEAD FILLED HOMES AND ASBESTOS REAKING APARTMENTS.

SO, YES THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER HAD TO WORRY ABOUT THIS AND WORRY NOT ABOUT THIS ARE GIVEN THIS COVETED POSITON TO COME IN AND BEFORE DAY ONE DREAD A GROUP OF BRILLIANT, EDUCATED, GIF TED, TALENTED STUDENTS JUST BY THE WORDS THAT WAS BEFORE THEIR EYES!

YES, WORDS HAVE POWER AND I WOULD APPRECIATE WE GET RID OF  THESE WRITE UPS AND REFERRALS AND TACKLE THIS LEGISLATED POVERTY, LACK AND MALTREATMENT OF OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF COLOR IN AMERICA!

IF YOU ARE EAGER TO GET ON THE HIGHWAY AND NOT AROUND THE CORNER….

THERE IS NO RESPECT BECAUSE YOU DON’THAVE TO WITNESS THE POVERTY THESE STUDENTS SEE

THERE IS NO RESPONSIBILITY BECAUSE YOU ARE ABLE TO TURN A BLIND EYE AND DEAF EAR TO TOWARDS THE ISSUES THAT PLAGUE AND FEEL NO SENSE OF ACCOUNTABILLITY

THERE IS NO RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE TO FULLY SEE, INVEST IN, AND FEEL THE PAIN AND ANGUISH OUR CHILDREN GO THROUGH JUST GET COME TO SCHOOL.

AMERICA BEGIN PUNISHING US AT BIRTH AND THEN WE WANT TO KNOW WHY OUR CHILDREN ARE NOT COMING TO  US: READY, WILLING, LEADING, HOPING, SHOWING, AND EMPOWERED?

COME ON NOW!

WORDS…..

WHAT MOTHERESE AND FATHERESE DO WHITE CHILDREN HEAR?

CAN OUR BLACK CHILDREN HEAR THE SAME?

NOW THAT I HEAR THESE WORDS, THAT WHEN I STARTED SOUNDED DEROGATORY AS I COMPLETE, IT IS WORDS USED TO END SLAVERY OF THE MIND AND BODY. THIS IS A FORM OF REVOLUTION TO ABOLITION THIS MENTALITY TO SET THE CAPTIVES FREE!
