The Homeland’s Forgotten People

“The Homeland’s Forgotten People”

          A Nation within a Nation, We are considered lost,

But easily found are We, and a little pride would be all its cost,

          America the Proud and the Beautiful, they want you to see,

But much is a different story found upon its History,

          They tell you of the Glory; from Sea to Shining Sea,

But America founded on Death; it swims in Past Misery,

          A Land claimed to be founded by Those that are not from Us,

America the Land Survived plenty, but none were named Columbus,

          Some say we should be revered but we ask only Peace,

But Slandered throughout history, and given small land to Lease,

          America says Respect Others, but to Us they give not a Damn,

Even to its Capital Washington, We are but a Redskin Man,

          They chose to tell Us laws and manners They do not Respect,

And They hope They can leave Us behind, because all Others seem to Forget,

          This is true to an extent, but Most have just chosen to Neglect,

They say a Simple Trail of Tears is all it was in Retrospect,

          But Generations of Pain will not be eased with a Neglectful Smile,

Especially when Its Capital chants its Slur, the name that is so Vile,

          And all Our complaints are met with a False Truth of Lie’s Denial,

They say They want to end Racism, but in Fact It’s Their Capital’s Style,

          They say there was a Dream, but clearly We have been Left Out,

And Ignored are Our Complaints, no matter how We Shout,

          We, My Native People, stand Firm in all Doubt,

Is this Truly What America will have Us tell Our Kids, THIS IS ALL AMERICA IS ABOUT?

Advice to Lance and Others, from Dear Abby

Advice to Lance and Others, from Dear Abby

Upon her death, Pauline Esther Phillips, known to most as Dear Abby, left behind a catalog of advice so robust it includes sage words for any conceivable quandary. Struggling with a long-toenailed husband? Abby’s on the case. Considering a pet primate? She’s got you there, too.

But in order to receive Abby’s advice one must ask for it, and that’s something this week’s newsmakers should have done. Perpetuating a monumental lie for over a decade and destroying other’s lives so it won’t be exposed? Abby could have helped! Carrying on a long-distance relationship with a woman you’ve never met while playing linebacker for Notre Dame? She’s got wisdom for that, too! After a week in which people could have dearly used Dear Abby’s advice, here are some words of wisdom she gave others that would have helped:

For “Formerly-Juiced and Now Contrite” or Lance Armstrong
(Originally written to a kid who was cheating in school)
“It is vital that you understand that when you cheat, the only person who gets cheated is yourself… At some point you will have to take responsibility for your actions — and from my perspective, the sooner you do it, the better off you’ll be.”

For “Led on By Fake Dead Girlfriend” or Manti T’eo
(Originally written to a woman skeptical of a man her sister met online)
“Since you don’t know his background, contact the police department in the city in which he lives and ask if he has a record. Then Google him to find out if there’s any information about him online. ”

For “Insulted By Howard Stern” or Lena Dunham
(Originally written to an overweight woman who encountered insults)
“Because a jackass brays doesn’t mean you have to take it to heart. The individuals making those unkind remarks are trying to make themselves feel superior by putting you down. Please don’t let it discourage you.”

For “Hands Off My Guns” or the NRA
(Originally written to someone advising shop keepers to keep guns)
“If you are suggesting that perhaps if every American had a gun in his home, it would rescue the national incidence of homicide and robbery, I would remind you that unless one is well trained in the use of firearms, he is better off without them.”

My Thoughts:

In the after thoughts of these situations these are funny. I think all in all people should be more disappointed with them but to develop hate over these situations towards the individuals involved is dumb. Unless you have been in their shoes and experienced this before then you are a hypocrite to pass judgement for you don’t know how you would respond in these situations. Also, why do people think heroes can not have flaws cause understand even in the comic books heroes have flaws. Leave your former heroes be and find new ones or accept they are flawed and keep them either way it is time to move on.

A Picture Maybe Misperceived

let me give you a picture of my life,
it’ll give you a little insight to what it’s like,
it’ll give you just enough so you may be able to understand,
the trails and tribulations of just one man,
how will you perceive it: joy or pain,
a life in tact or a life in vain,
will you perceive it as right or a need to change,
a life out of control or one that is well-maintained,
am i running through life or am i guided by a cane,
have i lost my mind or am i completely sane,
will you lay me on the counter or will i be framed,
will your last thought of me be good or followed by the words “what a shame”,
which of these thoughts will travel through your mind,
from this picture of me frozen in time,
so just remember to never judge a book by it’s cover; no matter what you think you see,
because what you saw may very well have been misperceived.
 

I’m Tired

I'm tired of seein death,
I’m tired of seein little kids shot because they got no vest,
so they get hit by a stray bullet right in the chest,
or they take one right in the head,
either way they whind up dead,
and all we have to say is three words that begin with rest,
I’m tired of these kids dying from these drugs like meth,
I’m tired of lookin at life and say what’s next,
and then sittin around and sayin what’s left,
I’m tired takin life slow like it’s a game of chess,
well knight to king it’s time to put some of these things to rest,
cuz while things are like this they can never be a pursuit for happiness,
 
I’m tired of livin life in a small town,
I’m tired of feelin like the whole world’s trying to hold me down,
I’m tired feeling like a prisoner; always bound,
I’m tired of all my hope’s and dreams being rained on until they all drown,
I’m tired of never wearing a smile but always wearing a frown,
I’m tired of never feeling up cuz I’m always feeling down,
I’m tired of trying to hide and always being found,
I’m tired of looking for a verb and only finding a noun,
I’m tired of running to only be run down,
I’m tired of worrying about my ending sound,
the sound that’ll put me in the ground,
I’m tired of feeling like i shouldn’t express my feelings out loud,
I’m tired of looking for a thought and only findin a cloud,
 
I’m tired of kids steady joinin these gangs,
and in return they get lead into all sorts of thangs,
they just keep treatin life like it’s some kind of game,
and when they get busted they start lookin for someone to blame,
well if you lookin for someone to blame you only have to do one thang,
look at your birth certificate and find your name,
cuz you make your own path and only you’re the blame,
I’m tired of people not tryin to change,
this racist stuff is out; times ain’t the same,
judgin me by my color is like judgin me by my name,
the fact is is this damn stuff is insane,
so if you don’t know me don’t judge me that’s all i got to say,
so i guess I’ll go through life just waitin for a change,
just lookin for those better days,
so understand what I’m sayin help me change the game.
