The Reality of a Situation When One is Bullied

I know…I know…it is shocking!  I am posting TWO blogs in one day.  For this, I must.

First, I would like to announce that I have deactivated ‘E as Poetlove Water’ Facebook page.  It proved to be time/energy consuming, a gauge of the insincerity within general public and not the best tool for marketing my creations (books, jewelry).  Now, here is the true purpose of the latest blog.

Clearly, many police officers in the United States of America are abusing their positions.  There seems to be an institutionally-ingrained disrespect of Black lives.  More and more of these young men and women are dying from bullets shot from a gun (in some cases, guns) of police officers.  NO ONE is beyond reproach! Here are some simple lessons in life:

  • Life is a continuum.
  • Karma / Law of Return exists.
  • When someone “dies”, there is always the option to return to planet Earth to fulfill a mission.
  • DNA carries memories.
  • We are an extension of our family and friends.  Retaliation may come upon a loved one for our irresponsible or cruel acts of violence.
  • Guns are man-made.  The machine is subject to failure.
  • Spiritual power supercede physical power

For those police officers who do not follow procedure because of triggerhappiness, repercussions will follow. Condolences of strength and prosperity to family and friends of wrongfully-slain Black youth in USA!  Justice (Ma’at) will be served!!!

The Houses of Blood Connecting

As the world learned on Wednesday, 28 May 2014, the legendary poet/author Dr. Maya Angelou transitioned into eternity.  Millions were affected by the news, likewise by her literary works and oratorical offerings.  Her legacy spans several decades.  Dr. Angelou’s colleagues had great respect and admiration of her courage and creative sensibilities within the writings.

DNA/Ethnic Heritage never lies!  Although I did not follow her every literary step, I knew I felt a certain connection.  Revelations of Maya Angelou’s background confirmed a lot.  In 2013, I discovered my matrilineal roots of the Mende people in present-day Sierra Leone, West Africa.  Maya was Mende Mama.  Additionally, she recorded a musical album entitled “Miss Calypso”.  I learned of this by legendary Calypsonian and humanitarian, Sir David Rudder of Trinidad & Tobago.  E is known as a “socaholic”, which has its roots stemmed in Calypso.

The protection and continuation of genetic expressions are absolutely astounding!  In spite of the many attempts to sever the ties our roots as Afri-Soulful-Spiritual-Cosmic Beings, it is inevitable through actions/works/behaviours
