The journey did not end, the paths stretches still before me. My voice is not dumbed down just gathering its power to release and roar once again. It will never be silenced. So many things to say but we must say the things most beneficent to the purpose.
Observation teaches much and when I take it all in, circumstances often reveal the true man or woman we are. We lay exposed, all our intentions and motives spread in full view. I feel a certain call in this time, a call to stand. A call that will separate those ready to answer courageously and those willing to just go along.
Our world is filled with so much injustice. Blood runs in the streets like rivers. We see, surely, there is uprising in all forms. This is not the only thing that dominates my attention however, my true self will not allow me to only see ruin but also the rising. Those standing, speaking out, revolting and re-evaluating. This concept of revolution. What is it really to have a revolution, be the revolution? Yes be the revolution in real Life.
History shows us when there is an uprising; yes there is possible bloodshed yet our ancestors still answered the call. They did not fear death and they live on in us to carry this mission forward. The call to justice, fairness, upfulness is for all of us and we will not be denied. How long will we stand aside or on the wall “a watch dem a crush wi”? Revolution is evolution for survival and while it takes place in the streets it also should take place in our grass roots. When we gather to ground and strive together, it should be to reason, strategize and build our plans to survive. Institutions must be set up to be the framework for the sustenance of the revolution long after you and I have past. So we have the blueprint, let’s execute in our niche by connecting with those of like mind.
Ubuntu and Umoja are critical glue holding us together. We should be as ferocious and systematic in our approach to surviving. My voice, my voice cannot be still, my pen will speak on paper. That is one call I must always answer. I ask who will join me. Who will answer the call? Find your calling. Answer it and let’s connect and work together, Get it? Work together. Many more things to release but time waits for no man. “The people, who were trying to make this world worse are not taking a day off, how can I? Light up the darkness.”
Who is the revolution? It’s you and I when we are self-determined and interdependent on each other. It is you and I using all our skills for the benefit of the community. Farmers, Readers, Writers, Singers Teachers Healers, Lovers, Helpers, and Warriors, we need you all but first we must ground ourselves and when the universe is ready and calls, Answer, answer the call.
