Spoken Word Poetry The Struggle Goes On
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- I grew up in Minneapolis. Spent time in Atlanta. Was in Minneapolis between 91 and 2000, The neighborhood that I lived in was Lake Street. I was one of the few white kids. I would be adopted at age 10 and moved to Saint Paul. During this time I ran with Minneapolis kids. I got out of high school and went to South Africa to study. Now I am trying to become an ESL teacher in a foriegn country. Periodically, I write poetry.
This Blog is meant to stir people's mind. I have seen struggle and my writings show what the struggle has brought. I have different sections from love to war, peace to inner struggle. Faith and community or minority verse the oppressor. My goal is to try to get in the music industry. I want to write songs and be the man behind the camera persay. I don't like to get attention. Rather I want to be known as the guy behind the scenes doing all the work.
In depth about me is that I have lived through a lot. The death of both of my parents. My mom when I was five and dad when I was 8. I had seen just about anything, coke, rocks, nickels, dimes, undercover poe-poe, etc. I knew how to use the stove and bath tub for numerous purposes. When I was adopted I saw things from the otherside of the fence but I could never truely get away from it. I loved my past to much. I visited Minneapolis a lot and saw my old brothers.
Later down the years I would go to Africa and found Islam. I don't like to say whose right, I don't honestly don't give a damn. i got to much respect for the struggle and know that we have to fight together. Forget the racism, colors, and who shot who. How are we going to get the kids on their feet. Bring money back to our hood and families. How can we take care of our grandparents who raised us while our pops was in prison and momma was needle and out.
How are we going to defeat the man, stop the police from arresting innocent black people. How are we going to bring back the golden era of hip hop. Easy E, Pac, NWA, etc. Those are the issues. Enjoy What I got.
