My Week Overall.

I had a pretty good week. i am usually the guy who’s always super negative about everything but I am trying to change that. Sure I know i haven’t been posting that much these past 2 weeks but I posted something…at some point. I felt super tired this week for no reason. I been taking it pretty easy at work but that stupid headache just won’t leave me alone. My boss has left work…permanently. It was for the best but i am going to miss the guy. I haven’t sold a single shirt this week and it’s making me sad. https://shop.spreadshirt.com/tress/ <<== go on this link and buy a shirt if you have the spare change…I will truly appreciate it and the shirt are mango certified good 🙂 Yeah to make things worst i had spend a lot of money for class and other stuff. I haven’t spent so much money in one week like this in a while!!! Okay I said I was going to be positive but I haven’t said anything nice yet. This week i started watching a few good shows (My Love Story!!, Into The Badlands, The Promise). I prayed more than i usually do so that’s also good. the best part of it all i had plenty of mango!!! The part was that they were mostly good quality mango. I haven’t had those in a while so that was truly refreshing. I talked to super awesome people like my friend’s friend who sends my messages for me. yeah she is somehow more busy then me and its our only way of communicating. Her messages always brighten up my day 🙂 I hope she gets back to me soon. Like I said I had a pretty good week all things considered. Don’t forget to pick up a shirt here ==>> https://shop.spreadshirt.com/tress/ and please tell me about your week 🙂

So much to talk about…

There is so much to talk about I don’t even where to begin. I could talk about TV shows I been watching and, do some reviews. But this isn’t what this blog about, the last time I decided to do a review it didn’t go so well. I could talk about my terrible decisions, like how I decided to abandon the person who care for me the most to be alone. It’s a weird and long story and I am not sure if all of it makes sense. Like does it makes sense to love someone but at the same times to want to be alone? I like being alone and it’s the best way for me not to hurt people. I not sure if she would understand or you would. I could talk about my current projects, like my new shop https://shop.spreadshirt.com/tress?noCache=true but i am not sure if that too self absorbed. I am back and there is a lot of catching up to do…starting next Saturday 😉

Dawn

People go on with their lives, ignoring what is around them,
They are too busy with their tasks to spare even a thought,
To the glory of what is unfolding all around them,
They all have eyes but they don’t bother to see,
They all have ears but they don’t care to listen,

I sit in my car as I drive along to where I’m going,
Yet I can see and hear the joy that is to be known,
My heart leaps, spurred by fierce anticipation,
I see the steady brightening of the sky,
I hear the cheerful rejoicing of birds,

Then at last a beam of light breaches the horizon,
The first warm, golden rays of the rising sun,
I smile as I greet the coming of the dawn,
I behold the gift of a precious, new day,
I know better than to take it for granted.

AOTW

This week’s artist of the week is non other that amazingly talented Rere Charle. I feel like I should apologize first because some of the pictures of him used in the videos of his are a little crusty but to me this guy to me is a living legend. If I was to talk about his full bio, it would take me days!!! I will try to give you the gist of it in a few lines here. He is a christian social activist. He was fled Haiti in the 80’s to safe himself from death treats he got from the goveremnt because of his controversial musics. He uses his music to describe the social situation of a oppress nation! If that isn’t cool enough to find this dude interesting well, let me tell you that  he has 12 kids….12!!! This has nothing to do with music but this fact always amazed me about him. He did them all with one wife of course since like I said he is he really by the book Pentecostal Christian. His music is just genius and most of well know music is done with his trusty Choir! Yeah I mean how many musicians do you know that have 12 kids (with one wife) is part maestro/solo artist that sings about God, social problems, and evil governments?. Despite all of that what people really about are mostly are his lyrics. They are smart, witty, and just simply talk about the things wish we all want to say with this messed up generation if we had a voice. He sings  a lot about God and all but like a lot of musician is very relatable to the average man. This guys is not in it for the money, he is about social Justice and spreading the word of God and hope to a dying nation. I wish a lot more people would speak Haitian Kreyol here because learning just to hear what he has to say is 100% worth it! The song I going to share today is called “La Verite” which is french for “The Truth”. It’s not his best musical work but is really iconic for all Haitian because in this song he talks about The things he finds true in this world, and how some people wants to hide it. He wrote it this one in the early 80’s when Haiti was under the rule of a fearless Dictator. I want to know what you guys think of this guy really because to all Haitian Christian or not, he is just awesome. Let me know in the comments an I hope you guys enjoy 🙂

(Y)our love

love

not sure of what I’m feeling

if only you gave me the time
hearts are not for stealing
but maybe I could share mine
we already share our laughter
some hours of our lives
those things also matter
not just straight dives
head-on into the pool
and while I can only slowly sink in
carefully, unlike a fool,
once I’m in the water
I’ll be there through thick and thin

give me time to look at the outside
before I enter your bounds
let me see you, large and wide,
let me hear your sweetest sounds
give me time, grant me longer
understand that time makes me stronger

but if you’re in a hurry
then leave me behind
I’ll watch you run off, blurry
from the tears that make me blind
and in the end,
when you’re almost out of sight,
these words I will send:
goodbye, may your future be bright

Whatever Remains

The remnants of the night tend to linger in my clothes;

the scent of liquor won’t leave my vest,
nor will that girl’s perfume, who was trying her best
my favorite shirt still smells of cigarette smoke,
or the drunken breath of the older bloke
the unsynchronised beats of the music failed to entice me
no sweat seeped into my skirt, I didn’t set myself free
nor did I get lost in the ogling man’s eyes,
turning him down was his most unpleasant surprise
I didn’t come close to anyone’s lips,
that reeked of mistakes and unfortunate slips
I went home with a friend, who remained by my side
kissed him good night, let everything else slide

And the following morning, when only memories remain
I can wash out the proof of their existence, though to me, it’s all the same
Because at least I can make all these disappear,
while you, I cannot
you are always right here
in my mind, never to be forgot

The Wild West (Unfinished)

Family

As some of you guys may know this year for this blog is all about goals. I am all about posting stuff goal related from now until the end of the year! Goals just like many other things in life tend to somehow relate with family. Some of you might be thinking how does my business goals relates to my family? Well I found out that most people tend to treat their parents and sibling like complete crap when they are trying to accomplish something. They may not even realize how crappy they are to their surrounding because they are so focus on trying to “make the dream come true” or “living the dream”. You never pick up that call when your parents or that annoying sibling is trying to reach you. You are always busy with something whenever they ask you for anything. If you think you fit that description well I am not judging here. I just trying to tell you to not forget those people who struggled with you before you could even spell struggle let alone experience it. You should never abandon your family not matter what stage in your journey you might be. Some of you guys have your family to support you while you are making your journey. Whether during or at the end, you should always treat your family right. I know there are friends and other people helping you in the way too but family will always be the most important. As much as you may not want to believe it friends come and go all the time. That friend you have today that you may think you can’t live without will probably leave you at some point in life. Maybe they will betray you or you will betray them, maybe they will die or be in a coma. I being a little dramatic here but the truth is they probably will move away or something. Not that the dramatic part might not happen it just less likely for some people. The point of this rant is not to weird you out or make you depressed but it’s rather to open your eyes on that really matters when it comes to people. You may not like that annoying sibling but chances are they are more likely to be with you when you old and wrinkly. When people say they consider you like brother or sister, they mean you are the best thing to ever happen to them since your parents. Even if your excuse for ignoring your parents is because they never supported you or believed in your dream but guess what? They brought you into this freaking world! A world you could even dare to dream the dream you are ignoring them for. This the most cliché thing your parents tell you to make you feel guilty but boy are they right! They might have been rich enough to give what you always wanted but they gave you love. Or maybe they were way too rich to give you attention but they made sure that you never have poor people problem aka money problem. Every family has their issues since there is not such thing as the perfect family. What is your excuse for ignoring your people? They gave you life which is something that no one else can give you. Not even that guy or girl you really like. I don’t know about you but that is something you won’t ever pay them for no matter what you give them. The least you could do is give them the satisfaction they ask of you. Who cares if all they want your money or to lash out on you. When they call you better pick up that phone and give them your complete attention! You don’t have to do anything in life remember that. You can ignore your family all you want. When they tell you they need a favor you can ignore them and call they all the names you want. Just remember to ask yourself this, Is that dream worth loving those who cares for you the most? What is it that makes you too busy for them? Is it a job? A Boyfriend or girlfriend? Keep fighting for your dream people! You just got to also keep fighting for your family too 🙂
