Shame on SHAME

Shame-is-the-most-powerful-master-emotion.-It’s-the-fear-that-we’re-not-good-enough..png

Shame has quite the fame
even and especially when you don’t recognize its pain.

Many walk around carrying him on their back
because of a shortcoming; a moment of lack.

People hang their head for the hurt that they’ve caused,
like apologizing isn’t enough or that shame is the law.

It’s not true.
Plus no one can render shame upon you but you.

You, alone hold the torch for that.
If shame accompanies a gift — give it back.
You really don’t want that.

Shame mostly lives in your mind
and reflects onto others a hue not so kind.

That hue belongs to you and you alone.
When you exhibit shame you hang your dome.

I am here to say “leave shame alone.”
Ain’t nobody got time for those dry bones.

Proactive measures beat shame.

Craniums hanging low isn’t fashionable or word.
Shame is an emotion; beat it with a verb.

Stand erect and walk to the mirror,
clear your throat so that you’re clearer

and say, “that thing that exists – I own it complete.
Shame: You’re too lame to paint my life weak.”

Say it as often as necessary, especially before facing the crew
that is known in the past to laugh and shame you.

Most people do not seek to convey or invoke shame.
Shame is an easy bi-product of the lower integrity lane.

I imagine that you probably already knew that.
Now use wisdom as a rod; put shame to a bat.

Shame on shame. I tell you, it is not ‘what’s up’ or word.
I’m Qui
Shame is an emotion; beat it with a verb.

A Happy Beginning

Let’s do it together…

No — I have not been to a massage parlor at the start of my day.
A Happy Beginning is me just waking to have my say.

Hello baby. How’s your morning starting?
It’s Saturday! Where are your skates? Rollers don’t do yawning.

ice skating-butt.gif

Put some HEART into it.

Let your skates be a metaphor for how you’re maneuvering through life.
Let Saturday be the day that you give your efforts a full hearted “try.”

Do so by committing.
As sure as I’m about this Griot spitting —
I am about giving my word and committing.

 

You be also.
Integrity is in that particular seed to sow.

Are you a sower?
If you are and of good seeds, then you’re also a grower

of relationships and partnerships.
You likely network well and pay for the sip.

Ah yes… I’m a social reader.
And I’m keen on recognizing and calling out a leader.

Good morning dear leader. Where whilst thou lead today?
I’m up early to chart my course; I’m up early to pray.

Shall you join me? I’d love to hear what you have to say.
This is A Happy Beginning for me, beside obvious “bed-romp play.”

You know what that is don’t you? I like bed-romping very much.
A Happy Beginning with long FX grinning – comes from human touch.

I’m a fan of it.
Communicating with you? I love it.

I’m always happy to do so,
I’m Qui
Interested in your morning glow.

Composing a script with you – is my favorite show.
The day is awake… you and I: let’s go!

Back-it-up, Pack-it-up, and Get Out of Dodge.

Do I need to complete the words to the phrase?
Good morning kinfolk, and what’s up LA?

Good morning California. I’m up early thinking about you.
I’m going to be Missy for Halloween, how about you be moist dew?

I am really respectful of Mother Earth; she’s pretty dry right now.
I know C-A’s hate the relocate. But you just may have to anyhow,

before it’s too late
and all of the good quality air has gone away.

Please don’t wait. Time is not yours to call when it comes to Mother Earth.
Don’t be like those in the past who were consumed by her fiery girth.

Some people waited around as if they had it on good authority
that “the fire will consume others but not mine or me.”

Many of them are not here with us today.
Cali is doing its thing and with you, – it does not play.

It’s imperative that you get out of its way,
I’m Qui
The hills are on fire and more is destined in its wake.

Cali isn’t the only place that’s on fire.
The White House is blazing with no sign of retire.

A massive legal team must be employed or very soon hired.
This Fall is in the business of supporting horror fires.

Washington, DC is a very heated-up place,
still there’s a whole lot of love in these ‘here states.

Allow my country grammar to draw you in;
allow common sense and honesty to commence.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
and if you’re in Cali or the W-H:

Let it go, let it go, let it go.

Don’t worry about your connections; I beg of thee to only consider your life.
I’m Qui
Wanting the best for thee; flee energetic and tangible fires like they’re a spit-ire wife.

Ire is something that no one likes.
Let’s live mindful to subdue the heat of this spike.

Monday is a fine day to make a new decision
to do good to others; utilize vision.

Move in a positive direction. Do it for you.
Monday is a fine day to do what you want to.

I woke up early excited to do me.
Doing-for-self will always be key.

How’s your health and how’s your diet looking?
Are you still eating fast food or at home cooking?

Me? I can do better; let the scale be my proof,
so today for lunch we’ll all be doing JAMBA JUICE.

Oui-oui-oui,
lunch is on me!

Monday is a fine day to care for the lot of.
I’m Qui
feeling nice about thee. Let’s start this week off with a hug.

BRING IT IN
and don’t forget to repent for your sins.

God understands and loves us – it’s okay for us to talk to him too.
That’s really all He’s ever wanted from lil’ ol’ me and you.

Honestly, He’s always given us much, much more.
Monday is a fine day to put-in-on a dimensional high-score.

Leaders Move Forward

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on October 25, 2019 at 2:13 pm

Representive Elijah Cummings.gif

Left, left, left-right-left; whose leading?
Plates are being fixed, but tell me who’s eating?

Leaders take the time to do and re-do head counts.
When they stumble or fall, they’re quick on the bounce.

Leaders Move Forward; we don’t stop or look back.
Leaders push on through, eating a diet of facts.

What’s on our united plate today is Elijah Cummings home-going.
We’ve got a few greats on the stage recalling his life and seed-sowing.

Reminding America:
that our unity can be fairer.

Leaders prompt those who follow to be encouraged and stay up-beat.
Leaders march with other leaders for CIVIL RIGHTS in the street.

The sky was the congressman’s limit – he insisted to press upwards.
Elijah Cummings is the definition of a LEADER MOVING FORWARD.

Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama graced the home-going stage to say farewell.
The funeral looked-like a feel good place; attendants sat in love for a spell.

What a sell of unity. I miss the feeling across the country.
Let Elijah be a reminder to us all, that life doesn’t have to be lumpy

all of the time.
Unite a little more and enjoy the sunshine.

A collection of good energy towards a specific issue is what Leaders harvest and use
to face the dangers of the world, resolve them, and secure protections for me and you.

I appreciate all of the presidents of the past who have led us safely to this point.
I feel pretty groovy about Elijahs home-going being a love-united joint.

Life is great for those of us who are still in it.
Let us use our life force to forge relationship in love and win this!

I’m down with it. Heck!  I been down with you,
I’m Qui
and it’s Friday y’all, let me spring for a cocktail or two.

It’s on me.
Leaders pay first – when they lead. 😛

No Debating HIGH RATINGS

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on October 23, 2019 at 6:26 am

neurosciencenews-lies_vs_truth.jpeg

Today is a big day, yesterday was a big one too.
It’s seems a whole lot of dark stuff is in popping up in the news.

It seems that all it took to deliver us here was an honest-man speaking truth.
It’s all that I’ve ever longed for, reminding me that I miss my Aunt Ruth.

Yes, I do talk about her a lot. Let her name comfort and hug ya.’
Aunt Ruth was about the real and if you couldn’t deal, she’d say “fuck ya!”

I miss her dearly and I hope that you know
that “middle-finger comment” isn’t from me, but  Aunt Ruth’s quote. 😛

So why the HIGH RATINGS last night? What, pray tell is Congress’ view?
Well, it looks like impeachment is around the corner as well as several #PrisonBlues.

How hard can it be to tell, hear, and digest the truth?
I hit up E-40 for an honest POV; a culture-reflective view:

Things are only low for those who have chosen to lie,
to not support the Constitution nor the quality of our lives.

The Kurds are losing theirs; their level of safety is bane,
and then there’s the issue of: quid pro quo and Ukraine.

So why the HIGH RATINGS? We’re in no position to gloat or flaunt.
I believe the ratings are high because this is a moment the people want.

There’s NO DEBATING that the world has been in a funk.
God still has our back and the new script isn’t bunk.

You don’t have to stay-tuned to the news, God will make the truth a prompt in your throat.
May honesty be your shotgun buddy and ride with you on every to and fro.
Having said as much, things are looking up, yo.

Good morning baby, we are mid-week already.
I woke up this morning feeling fly like Blondie and Fab5Freddy.

Everybody’s still fly, right?
I’m Qui
Digging the high ratings for more truth and less debating; I’m about that HONESTY life.

The TRUTH is my JAM.

 

And so

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on October 21, 2019 at 4:45 am

Mick gave us his word, before his word was dead.
That’s when I stood up to clarify the moment and said:

oh-no-he-didnt_DamanWayansJr.gif

But he did. He took back what he said 5-hours prior
when the press corp was in the room and he had the floor.

Weird moments in time have been popping back up
since the media started rewinding “honesty cuts.”

You know, “honesty cuts?” That’s when someone has a moment of clarity
and blurts out the whole-hearted truth then pretends it was all parody.

You gotta be kidding me! And so I just thought I’d mention
what is constant reality in this era’s indention.

It’s an integrity issue and it keeps on happening —
“honesty cuts” show up before faux-talking-point dampening.

Why?
What does it cost you to live a big lie?

I wouldn’t know.
The “lie-laden route” is one I don’t go.

And so today my integrity is in check but not my Vertigo.
I woke up yesterday morning thinking I was on a boat.
Do you know Vertigo?

It’s a relative to TMJ so here I go.
I got this though.

It will not keep me from chatting it up with you.
It will not delay me from honesty and spilling the truth.

As sure as my beloved Aunt’s name is Ruth,
honesty and integrity should rank out-the-roof.

Put no ceiling on that, kinfolk.
And pray for those who lack its show.

Leadership qualities are the bombs and so
I’m eating up the course that’s on my degreed to-and-fro.
It’s a must, yo.’

Good morning kinfolk. What-it-look-like outside?
Are you up for the challenge? Are you down to ride?

If so, I’ll step off of this boat that dubs as Vertigo,
I’m Qui
accepting nothing in my way that keeps me from play, and so

Yee Doggy

Life. Paddle through it.

I once had a friend named Cheryl who was married to a dude named Bobby.
They were from Wichita Falls and to ‘be country‘ was more than hobby.

When Cheryl would come-up on something good she didn’t have to call me,
I’d hear her boisterous-stereo-lungs yelling “Yee Doggy.”

I’m from Dallas, Texas originally, and Cheryl was an implant.
Today I’m the guest in a foreign land and of good energy – I must vent.

Yee Doggy!

Today is Friday and this week has been quite the spinner.
From Monday to this very moment karma has been eating dinner.

Where are Cheryl and Bobby today? I miss them dearly.
She gave and received big energy like mine; thus she never feared me.

Folks:  Today is one of those days where the time is yours right now
to do what you want, say how you feel, and still be loved anyhow.

I love you.
Yee doggy!
Do you love me back?
Karma is a boomerang-girl eating more than a snack.
Did you see that?

Anytime is a good time to recognize your bad,
change your tone and be  a calibrated lad.

Gas, break. Gas, break. If you feel you have to.
Yee Doggy comes up when you find your groove.

Enjoy your life; you have the capacity to make it smooth.
I’m doing me and looking forward to you doing you.

Life is best when you live it in truth.
Don’t sacrifice your life for others who are not FOR you.

Be yourself. To rep someone else is to be funky.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Yee Doggy! Be a lover of your country.

Living The Dream

Just-do-the-work-Don-t-talk-about-doing-the-work-D.jpeg

Are you still dreaming when you go to sleep,
prior to you “praying the Lord your soul to keep?.’

I am. Prayer and dreams aren’t wrong.
Then I awake to research meanings of WHAT is going on.

This weekend I had several dreams, though I’m going to speak on two,
I dreamt one revolving around fam and one revolving around me too.

The first one was a 2For: I saw my nephew and cousin whom I love a lot;
their vehicles were flooded out (by excessive rain) in a parking lot.

The parking lot is a place of stop; there’s not too much that moves.
Both beloveds were with their vehicles; my nephew’s was flooded to the roof.

My cousin’s vehicle was further in the parking lot and on a slight hill.
In the dream he responded to my concern that he was ‘melancholy about the ill.’

Not scared, just concerned.
My nephew, also responded in a tone ‘less than burned.’

suv-underwater.jpg

Are you flooded out with EMOTIONAL STRESS?

That’s good news, because research tells me that water equals emotions and feelings.
Both beloveds were consumed by the water, both are believers in divine endings.

The end of the dream delivered me to consciousness/waking up.
I grabbed my phone upon opening my eyes and started texting-it up.

I don’t graduate from the university until next May,
so I allowed my Psychology knowledge to rule the day.

My cousin and nephew responded on cue
and confirmed the dream is a comparable view.

Each man also said, he is “working things out.
I asked for no details of what their situations are about.

Because I don’t need to know.
I have my own dreams to reverse engineer and sew.

The next night I dreamed that I was sitting on a school bus
with my hand over my mouth. What’s the messaging fuss?

I looked it up and found several says
that assure me “foul conversation” is in play.

Huh? What does that mean?
I took a few more minutes to comprehend the dream.

Basically what I learned after many research hours
is that someone will try to coheres from my lips: conversation-sour.

rogue-bus.gif

I shared the dream and meaning with a confidant and vowed that “ill conversation” will find me being still.
24-hours later my confidant called me and said “rumored conversation” was on the prow trying to reputation kill.

Huh? What does that mean?
My confidant was being beckoned by authorities on the scene.

There is an official investigation in-progress over an intentional lie.
Though it did not concern me, the accused is an apple of my eye.

My confidant woke up the next day to trouble at the door.
The dream I shared with them prior, was hardly theory anymore.

It was manifested real.
Allegations included a familia feel.

This isn’t the MATRIX and no one took any pills; dreams are a reflective clue
of what-in-the-world is going on as it pertains to those you love and you.

Maybe not all dreams have a message – but a great deal of them do.
I’m Qui
Living The Dream starring Me and about You.

To you, I want to toast: prosperity, peace and wealth,
immediately after toasting to YOUR GOOD HEALTH.

So, I’m in my 40’s and it feels like everyday get’s better.
I don’t run to the doctor for much – I just keep my lobes wetter.

I read a lot, kinfolk; I’m a research beast – it’s true.
It yields quality of life to my fam, so I want to share it with you.

If you didn’t know, human DNA was composed to win
and while gravity is real, please do not feel that you have to give in.

At that ball, DO NOT PUNT.
A mid-drift is coming – I ain’t ‘gone front.
But you do not have to succumb to “the dump”
that looks like a lesser-agile-body crunch,
(shoulders hunched over, sit or stand in a slump).

That ain’t right.
Putting-in on staying young – is my delight.

#1. It all starts on the inside. So never mind those face creams,
if you are weak and sagging at your endocrine seams.

Keep your organs operating at optimal function.
Do the work yourself, have some intellectual gumption.

If you find yourself feeling sluggish and spunk isn’t clear as crystal –
I say clean up your (party rich)  liver with a round of Milk Thistle.

I’m no lover of prescriptions and believe that we can find
a lot of what we need in an herbal supplement bind.

Start an herbal garden. Share the aroma with Mother Earth.
It will be a pleasant reception amidst her polluted girth.

#2. Anxiety is real and a lot of folk have it.
We done fell into smoking, drinking and all sorts of habits.

I understand a reason to have “another drink” – but then we keep on having them.
I suggest cleaning up the gallbladder; tending to your cortisol & adrenaline.

Yes! I watch too many night time infomercials and from them I am learning
that optimal health for the long run is what we’re all yearning.

#3. Our beloved diets. We are human. We should treat ourselves better now
and consider how much we really need to excessively eat the cow.

decorative-line-divider1

It’s a matter of life or death for every person equivalent to a son or daughter.
You may not care about cows, but please consider whose currently being led to slaughter.

By methane.
Is it worth farming that thang?

They may cost ALL HUMANS their futures.
Are they really an affordable hunger suture?

I didn’t say ‘lay down all burgers @ once!’ Good lawd, it’s not true. I just think that we can improve
our diets by lessening our demand on the cow and to be proactive at mending our ozone groove.

DO IT FOR YOU.

good-and-bad-posture-slump.jpg

There is no harm in being informed.

That’s it! These 3 things are helping us out tremendously. Today I woke up feeling 12.
The fam and I laughed over cups of jo’ at our ages, lack of wrinkles, and good health.

We thanked God for it all. We are not all “CORNERBACK fit,” though we never cease the route.
What friend would I be to you if I didn’t share with thee what my good vibe is all about?

I endeavor to be your homegirl, beloved sister and 411 friend to the end,
I’m Qui
Good morning kinfolk, take heed and let good health continue to reign and win.
