The world is such a smaller place now and, to have experience Light's passion and force, opens it up again. Salute on her new journey.

Today's #Unlockedthoughts :

Just like the Pharell song "Happy", its all a state of mind we have control over. Making the decision of how often and well it applies is by choice. I've learned that allowing another person, place or thing to define my happiness is my choosing to feel unhappy and miserable. And makes it hard to progress. I've come too far to give in to any of those variables deciding my mood. To reiterate, man is what he thinketh...if I allow myself to embody happiness from my first breath today, everyday...its my fault. If I do the opposite, its my fault. Good morning. #Selfaffirmation #BeingABetterBenjamin #BeingABetterBenjaMAN #Nothing2itbut2doit #IBelieve #meant2moveforward #claimingit

Today's #Unlockedthoughts :

We all have the should've, could've, would've times in our lives. Whether it be after a recent life changing event...or past moments you swear if time travel were possible, doing and/or saying certain things differently...your #currentsituation would be more joyful and fulfilling. Some call it, "The take a chance" time frame. Where you had choices. But chose the one(s) you thought was best out of fear, neglect, etc. Not realizing it may be regretted. Thing is, if it was suppose to happen how you wished, it would be so. My point, don't give ya self a coronary on what didn't work out. Fate has a funny way of working out for us...even when we cant see it immediately. Marinate on it this grooving Sunday morn my people. #Selfaffirmation #BeingABetterBenjamin #everythinghappensforareason #LIVE #meant2moveforward #followthetruth #carvethepathtothefutureyoudeserve #honestabepoet

Shelf Ride

Late night...
Lost in my thoughts...
Closing my eyes to write...
The wear and tear and fear away.
Sharing the hopeful solace I want so bad to
Consume...
Shuffling on the shelf ride.
Inside, a man on this road, this street..
Blocks from my expiration date
Callus feet above sleet...
Sitting in the seat my father once told me
I'd have to buckle up into.
At times selling in defeat
My father once said I'd have to break through.
Developing a tolerance for endurance...
Was told I'd have embrace..
Face up to a harsh reality
That supplied no reassurance that my time here...
Would matter...if there was no shift in the paradigm of non 48 Laws of power actions
Either when life knocks me on my ass
Or treading in the storm of resistance
Of habitual change with a flask in one hand
And a Cain in the other!
Ride!
Because shelves in the store of my existence
Were only made to hold temporary goods
So low self-esteem and high procrastination
Ain't gone get a brotha out the hood faster.
Ride!
Where there is no reason
And every reason to be writing this right now.
Ride!
Till love releases its restraining order from my heart.
Seeing that its ready like India Arie.
This wheel has been set on automatic
One too many times while time, opportunity
Road runner away...
That's when revelations keep reminding...
What do you want this legacy to be one day?
Playing the unfiltered hand that was dealt.
The uneasiness of what's coming...
Needs my focus to see through till the end...
