In the few years  especially the last two years . I learn a lot about myself .  Here are some of the thinks I learned. 

Family 

We need family the most. This is we go for support , advise, trust and so much more. But sometimes that is not always the case .  It make you sad when them don’t have your back but it life .

Friends

This is similar to family but not blood related.  One thing I learn we used this word so loosely , I guess we are trying to find the stuff that we would get in a family . But it not always the same. Sometimes you get friends for life. These friends are the least expected one. And the one that you taught that are  your friends are the one who put on a mask  and can used you in the most possible way

Alone/lonely 

This can turn into a disease so becareful .  But it have some benefit to it . You can take the to reflect as you as a person and work on your dreams and goals. You can take time and learn to love yourself and try to build your confident  . Cause let face it we get our motivation and confident a from our family and friend if it broken . You feel worthless of your self .

Hurt 

I learn that when try to protect the people you love. You end up getting hurt .  Because them don’t see the same thing that you see.  You don’t want to see them getting use  but sometimes you have to let people learn on there own and step back . 

Strong 

Sometimes you don’t know how strong you are .  Untill some negative force in inflicted on you. 

Opportunities 

In life we  miss out on so  opportunities cause we are fear what people would say .  Just take them and go from there . You never know what is at the end of the tunnel

Happiness 

Never put your happiness in a man   Or create your happiness in other people. Do what make you happy . Do what make you get up very morning and you want to life. 

Goals and Dream 

In life we have goals and dream but we don’t work hard for it. Cause we look at the other person or looking for validation from our family or peers . So we fall short . Just work for it and don’t tell anyone . Outside force is the worst unless you know the person is going to support you go for it. 

In conclusion live your life to please you. Sometime it good to just care about yourself and forces on your dreams and goals

Being myself 

People call me weird, stupid , problem , bored and the list goes on .  I get call these name just because I don’t follow the way on how the world see it . Most of the times I don’t fit in but I was told ,  if I want to fit in I have to be like the majority. But why? Why can’t I be myself and be part of the society.  Why I have to follow to crowd just to get notice. It just kind of heart broken that I can’t be me and still be part of a group. I just hate I have to drink alcohol, do illegal drugs , party , wear makeup to look pretty and the list go on. All I just want to be notice but on my own term. I just want to feel love, care for, have fun, be happy, do positive stuff and people say hey that a good idea. Instead I have to hold my mouth because of fear. I just want be outside of the box not inside the box. All I just want is to have people who be there for me and not pretend. 

Sad

It sad that you feel all alone.

 It sad when you think you know someone you don’t. 

It sad people say I’m here for you but don’t .

 It sad that the people you think who would support you always have an excused why not to do this or that . 

It sad people only think about surviving but not living. 

It just sad ………

Caring 

One thing I learn about caring for people , is that you end up hurting yourself.  In the end you end up all alone. Then you wonder why? When you look back , these people was just playing you.  It be so hard to trust people again .Cause in the back of your mind , you will be thinking would this happen again?  But the caring person still help and the cycle repeats again .

Rise up

Does any of these names sound familiar?
These are some names of men and women who had paved away for us,

There taught us to be confidence in ourselves,

Them show us that no matter the color of our skin,

We can be come great, 

There taught us to embrace the color of our skin ,

And the jet black hair which look like tar.

Them taugh us we can achieve anything,

Whether  it a politician, inventor, doctor you name it ,

We are equal.

But most of all , 

Them taught us to be strong and to be a proud black person.

And don’t settle for less.
