Let’s Talk About It: Domestic Violence

Nobody likes to get hit. Why should you hit someone and not be expected to get hit back? Why are men deemed as abusers for defending themselves? Why don’t women be held accountable for their actions? Why is it acceptable if she hit him?

I’m no abuser but I’m just confused as why am I a bad human if I defend myself. By no means is this blog about abusing anyone but I’m tired of seeing these same situations. If we were to count all the times a woman has slapped their boyfriend then who really are the abusers in the relationships.

Why aren’t women held accountable for bullying men with the constant hitting with the same excuse as to she’s only a woman. Even saying that out of this context would be looked at as sexist. So why use that now? She’s just a woman when she hit you to make it seem like she’s weak. But when the shoe is on the other foot I’m a poor excuse for a human being.

This blog is merely a response to when the male figure is attacked physically and he defends himself. Just making that clear. As for when it’s the man beating on the woman, I think he deserves the time he gets. If anyone is in that position, I think you should get out. That’s not love. You don’t physically and verbally abuse someone if you love them. That’s all I have to write on this subject. Like, comment and subscribe to my mailing list.

Let’s Talk About It: Police

Let’s Talk About It: Police

I honestly feel like there are good cops out there. We just only see the bad. When you scroll through your timeline all you see is cops beating or shooting someone. You don’t see cops making a normal arrest for a crime. You see the bad officers. There’s good and bad in every situation. We can’t judge if we only see the bad.

Sometimes it’s also different from viewpoints. What you see from your side of town is different from what I see on my side. You see a hero and often times I don’t. I see the boogeyman. I get how some would say what about the people in your neighborhood or the people that look like you?

Oh yeah, they’re dangerous as well. I will never put them off as not dangerous. But if I get killed by my neighbor, my family could rest better knowing that my killer was found and put behind bars for life. The police, on the other hand, will live their life lavishly. While my family grieves over my death. Knowing my killer is out there living freely.

Or maybe not. Not everyone is the same. Is another statement I wanted to make. Officer John is not the same as Officer Mike. Just like I’m not the same as my neighbor. That’s it for this Let’s Talk About It. Like, comment and subscribe to my mailing list. View my previous posts until tomorrow.

Top 5 Favorite (Poem)

My top 5 favorite rappers

Would have to be dapper

Not much of a trapper

But no slacker

My top 5 will have to have swagger

And their lyrics will have to be like a dagger

They change so much how can I really pick 5

I will pick 5 dead or alive

I will try to analyze exactly why

I will have to go with the legend biggie

His flow is very tricky

His lyrics could never be shitty

I think my favorite lyric was when he did ten crack commandments

It was so much of an advancement

It was like he was telling you the rules of the game

The rules of the game in his rap it was so much to gain

This line left a stain in my mind

He said money and blood don’t mix like two dicks and no bitch

That bar left my mind in a serious ditch

I’m use to listening to people rap about getting rich

But he was different it was a laid back cool flow

You know just like snoop dogg

But his had a little bit of a edge on it

That’s why he was so hot

My second favorite would have to be the metaphor king

Lil wayne metaphors will leave you amazed

His style is so wild

The metaphors be crazy but make sense

I can’t even pick one cause its so many

J. Cole is next up for a Grammy

And next up on my top five

His songs aren’t full of lies

He actually talk about real life

He is a lyricist

And one of the biggest

Ace hood would be my next favorite

His songs just got a certain hood edge

Like he is full of rage

Like someone locked him in a cage

When he rap its like he on a rampage

It keeps me engaged

Then there’s my last favorite

It would have to be slim shady

Eminem skills is crazy

It can’t be traced

When he touch the mic the whole building stop in its tracks

He has crazy impact

His song not afraid is my favorite song of all time

The story it tells of being brave

Eminem is one of the only rappers I know that could spit for 6 minutes

Rap god was crazy after a long break

I could listen to him all day

All day everyday

That’s my top 5 favorite rappers

Writing Prompt #19

What are some things you can express through poetry that you can’t express in another writing format?

The emotions I can express through poetry is priceless

You don’t know how much I love this

The day to day shit I take

I can let it out on the mic

It’s literally therapeutic

This notepad is my couch

And the poetry that leaves my mouth

Bounces off the walls like a bouncy house

As it enters the minds of everyone in the room and they can finally feel what I feel

I finally can drop the shield

I can finally speak without trying to be this man of steel

I can finally be real

I can finally let the world in on how I feel

Instead of putting up this persona that I am made of steel

That’s what poetry allows me to do

I can write phony story with different characters but how would you know it’s really from the heart

When these words sing from my soul

It takes a different kind of toll

On me it makes me feel whole
