I came from nothing
or so they claim.
But something from nothing
is outrageous.
You need
at least
a lil’ bit
to make
anything.
I’m here to stay,
forever I’ll remain
a Free Mind,
Open Heart.
My actions
you won’t dictate.…

Platforms

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Platforms and I’m not talking about the shoes,
I’m writing about the people speaking who don’t have a clue

Platforms that were built on my L4 and L5,
giving me chronic back pain from all the verbal jive

Let’s expand on this privilege, the subject at hand,
this platform of yours where you make your grandstand

So absorbed in your spot that you place others in the dark,
never even a thought to appreciate their written art

What is an effort if not the effort to simply write,
judgmental of creativity where comes your insight

In the sixteen-hundreds, the rave was the selling of slaves,
all carried out on high from the platforms that was raised

A jumble of words is all that we saw,
yet 3/5ths of a man was written constitutional law

Words are intentions behind inventions
so next time you’re on that platform…

before I was
and after I am……

A Young Black Prince Dream

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

By HC

Young black prince
living in a world
that don’t recognize your presence,
your existence feeling
the wrath of your resistance,
seeing the hate in your eyes
from morning and evening news lies.

Young black prince,
the odds are against you
but you have to hold strong
like a clenched black fist,
mighty enough to turn
your past into existence
from a prince to a king!

A young black prince dream!…

20 Brilliant 1984 Quotes that Will Blow Your Mind

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Written by English author George Orwell, the novel 1984 is considered one of the most terrifying novels ever written; not because it revolves around scary fictional characters, but because it shows what horrifying actions individuals can take when given too much power.

As you’ve probably guessed, the book is set in the year 1984, where the “Party” takes full control over most of the world’s population. Individualism and independent thinking are banned, everyone is manipulated and under constant surveillance — “Big Brother” is watching them.

The politics and psychology of 1984 run very deep. The members of the “Party” use brutal force and mind control to make sure individuals are kept in line. Anyone who tries to live by their own rules is labeled a traitor and terribly punished.

The dystopian novel 1984 focuses on the darker side of life, forcing the reader to think about the consequences of giving someone too much control over one’s life, making it impossible not to feel anger and helplessness while reading it.

However, the picture the book paints can also act as a powerful catalyst for taking action and finding ways to have a positive impact on the world.

Here are 20 brilliant 1984 quotes that will blow your mind.
