I don’t want to be in your soul tribe


Here she comes
Me -the late bloomer
I have a revelation: words matter circa 2015.

Let me try and type something with substance
Words have power.
collectively we should choose our words carefully.
Don’t stop talking.
hashtag it’s still okay to talk.
start a difficult conversation.

Mental health is here for as long as we humans are.
Fer real…
Stop with the sincerely Stan – suicidal fan stereotyping –
Passive aggressive greeting -Hello hunties!
Yes I have a cunt and I won’t let any man hunt me -unless he is prepared to be chased too.

How can we all be so woke when
Do we still choose to believe in fake news?
People love to give blow jobs on other people’s words.
Most people swallow and don’t spit.
Retweet it to keep it 100.
Can we put a value on integrity?

Words matter -when we stand up for our belief to break away from the mould.
Especially when people aren’t watching.Open mic night’s expressions should be honoured by doing our words -over and over.
Show and tell how to walk the talk.
Match a wage bet — that another brother’s claims of little Miss trouble are too high key.
It’s okay to talk.

Tupac once said:
Real eyes
Real lies

People should see before they make a judgement.
Express yourself – in the social accepted way –
Aspire to appear lowkey?
All these quotes about
Keep your personal business to yourself. –
then do a 180 and take the “power back”.

A calculated performance
reveal you know how to manipulate words – with barely legal finesse.
Hashtag wars still matter.
Use language for positive change.
Start a difficult conversation.
Think about your fellow patient in the opposite bed.
Why does she have Resting Bitch Face Syndrome ?
Why does she stare at back after you state
‘That feeling when you feel like Briney spears circa 2007?

Oh you have problems – you slit your wrists – oh how savage – roll of the eyes.
Let’s get creative with our words.
affected by a mental illness.
Lives with a mental illness ?
or suffers from a mental illness?
How savage (roll of eyes)
These labels – – schizophrenics. Bipolar , psychotic
2018 is the year where Everyone wants to be Insane,
the reason to be a certain way is the new aesthetic
or an excuse

To be lowkey about our true shame and high key about superficial hurt not to lure in the Stans.
Whose that?
It’s not relevant as long as I get approval from my fam or
my Sis from another Miss.

We are more than a tick boxed list of criteria.
We are complex humans, with diverse traits and interests.
Who is that? Over there- making a statement.

Not relevant – That there is just some extra.
to you;
Not part of the true fam –
Is this how we wish people to feel?

For all the RT’ers out there who love to share,
Share your own personal story.
The world will become a place where you are lit by your integrity.
Not everyone can relate to the G.O.A.T.’s
with swagger.

We probably are pretty for real when we embrace our bromances and our militant feminists.
True power is being woke enough to see the ethic in bringing out the G.O.A.T. in EVERYONE of us.
We can all be lowkey.
we are all fam.
I’m not going to say it’s cool to call my new ‘ship interest- Dad.
Words matter
and the lack of them.
What we don’t say .. is a statement of power.

Spoken word – maybe we all have an inner dictator waiting to stand up and be heard.
I don’t know how we can claim to be so woke when everything we do is ‘to death’.
What am I going on about?
Apologies for this is the mix in slang –
I’m not pedantic … I am keeping my integrity – my code of ethics.

If we are going to talk and be true about our feelings – Remember that the words we use to connect on a level can out you as a hypocrite –
Words matter because they help us communicate and relate with a diverse bunch of people who may end up feeling like family more than your own Dad or sis.

Communication can cause dis -ease – challenge our own self awareness;
Not because you go to person to get the latest scoop on someone else in life detention.
It’s cool to be high key about not fitting the mould –
Embrace the idea that to be holistic is not going to conform to your method of living –
for real.

WE don’t have to be conventionally spiritual to have faith.
Well-being of the mind and body is the G.O.A.T.
– the power –
the perfect ratio.
Sometimes we fall – human after all ..
I guess
When we outcast others for assuming their makeup
judging every part of them based on an undemocratic vote of what a person’s true disposition is.
How fair and unbiased are our Hugh key views when we don’t have the whole picture?
That moonscape – that attitude is a predisposition to sus and ghost others because of their diversity.

We spit words , stand up for diversity and equality –
Express ourselves through didactic verse.
Congratulate ourselves on our ethics- to embrace the variety of our culture.
The irony is what we say and do,
What day we are going to do.
And what we do when confronted with someone who is different and not facile to understand.
How quick we are to turn into heartless bastards and turn away from our own race.
Everyone is quick to look at the other person.
I Don’t see colour .. I’m not racist.
I don’t discriminate, I’m well up for equality.
“Look at those tits!”
“She looks well up for it.”
“Crazy, cheating man hating bitch.”
“disrespecting my bro..”
Consult the bro code.
This divine, esoteric oracle states that she was asking for it.
She’s trouble.
Aaah aaah aaah baah!
True story – a woman lived under apartheid then came to live in the patriarchal society of English gentry. She’s spoke up for herself – acted like a dude -how dare she!
Embraced the spoken word and unashamedly campaigned for the right that it is truly ok to talk.
Segreted cos she is diverse and predispositioned to speak her mind, she made as many fuck ups as the people she met, and spent time with.
She decided to end her life with
these words
I don’t don’t give a fuck, I know the world is bigger than a few small minded ,feeble gossips who use their words to bond
I died to be reborn .
I answer to nature not people.

  1. “People should see before they make judgment”
    What a powerful statement! So often we judge others before getting the full story or understanding their point of view and the world would be a better place if we didn’t do that.
    AMAZING work as always

    • I now be the same , LaShelle. I wrote this at a point in my life when I was so angry that people were pointing fingers at me – left, right & centre . It really helped me to purge . And you are absolutely right about people who don’t try & understand or see before they judge. We all judge however we can fix our perspective by asking ourselves questions.
