Its KEY

And so

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

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.

cheers-in-spanish.jpg
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.

PS – May I suggest you research a multivitamin? check-mark

 

Let’s Do It

That’s Our Future nudging You.

Let’s do it, go for it, do it big and the likes.
Let’s do it across the board – starting with bettering our lives.

What about the sky? It has no limits from your view.
What does the sky see when it looks upon the lands of me and you?

Let’s pick-it-up, people! That gum wrapper, that plastic bottle, and cigarette butt.
Let’s give the sky competition to which direction reflects God’s love.

What an awesome game to participate in; us competing to show how much we care.
I wish that was the case for real. Why not our reality? It’s only fair.

God has given us an awesome place to reside; Earth is “the giving place” that we call home.
Prove that you love E. and pick up a piece of trash or three, so that the babies can play and roam

tomorrow.
Right now they are marching in the streets in sorrow.

They are hurt.
The ozone has been riddled with gas and appears to be murked.

Well the ozone isn’t completely lifeless; it has the ability to be revived.
So I beg of thee and on bended-knee, that to capacity you share all rides.

#RideShare is fair.

Let’s Do It before we really get into a weathered pickle.
Park your gas guzzler and get an electric vehicle.

Yep-yep. That’ll #Help.

I am in the market. I am duly looking.
In the meantime I’m grinding via Black Car crooking.

The transport concept isn’t any better,
but most of the drivers are hard core go-getters.

I wish them all electric vehicles and I wish it to be soon.
If you asked me what time of day we are in, I’d say noon.

If that were true — but we are late in the day on air quality and emissions.
I could go deep, but fear putting you to sleep – please adopt electric vehicle vision.

The kids are crying.  They say we screw it!
We all deserve a future on Earth, so Let’s Do It.

anyone here-anyone home.gifHello? Hello? Have you left the room?
Did you decide that I’m pandering at a high velocity; vroom-vroom?

Nah. I keep it real. I’m trying to breathe and keep the future fluid.
I’m in search of my own electric vehicle. I’m ‘gone do it.

How about you?
What is it that is restraining you?

If you say “a new car note isn’t in my future” – so you’ll pass,
I’ll meet you with, “What would you do if our reserves ran out gas?”

I think about that often. I’m a writer, it’s what I do.

Encouraging you to do it. Commit to a cleaner groove.

Good morning fam. Today I am on the run.
It’s Tuesday, a fuse-day and I’m lit for fun.

What are you up to hun?
Are you inside or out in the morning sun?

I’m about that CALI life today.
I’m on the West Coast, but not for play.

I’m out here on my scout; I’m perusing locations.
I’m up early hitting you up because I like our relations.

Last night caught me being enamored by the skyline view.
Last night caught me script writing and thinking about you.

So how are ya, baby? What good have you got up for today?
Drop me a pin, let’s hook up and grin if you are out in LA.

The weather. Let’s talk about it. I woke up with matter in my eyes.
I think it’s post debris from all of the mayhem that happens outside;

as in the Amazon fires around the world in addition to our convenient fuel emissions.
I suppose I’m feeling great – good health is on my plate in the face of ozone conditions.

No PHOTOSHOPPING was done on this smog.

I am feeling rather blessed.
With that in mind, I’ve no time for stress.

SUPER SOUL SUNDAY Encouragement

In News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on September 29, 2019 at 6:16 am

REVISIONIST HISTORY by Malcolm Gladwell is worth listening to and reading into.
He has been watching and chronicling the world; what we’re going through.

I am always in search of SUPER SOUL fuel
and I know there’s some in-excess on OWN’s tube.

So I drop in to tickle my ears with such chime –
and to my delight I was introduced to Malcolm this time.

I’ve met many others on OWN who share the good that they ahere.
I have met him, him, him, her and Norman Lear.

There are so many good people sending out good vibes into the world.
We don’t have to know them all personally, but Oprah is their girl

and through her we are all able to see goodness full blown.
There’s nourishment in narrative and reality shows on OWN.

It’s good to know that we have places to go to when we need to recharge,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, today is a great day to seek out and talk to the Lord.
Honestly, it’s because of him that you shine so hard. #Talk2Him

The Climax is About The CLIMATE

Copulation.

Wanna turn me on? Quit the fuel and ride a bike.
I’m an ecological kind of girl; I’m clear on what I like.

I keep it clean and convey clear, because I want you to see.
I pick up trash anywhere and everywhere around me.

You feel me? Do you like it?
We can go tit-for-tat and get excited.

You wanna do that?
The CLIMATE is in trouble and our temps are Climaxed.

Did you know that we can combat that?
We cannot stop it but we can roll it back.

If we re-instate regulations put in place by President 45
we can work hard to repair Earth and sustain our lives.

Young Greta Thunberg isn’t intimidated by age at all,
she showed up yesterday and let the world feel her gall.

I appreciate her, y’all and I was deeply moved.
The world is in a funk – it’s time to change our groove.

Stella Got Her Groove Back and now Earth want’s hers.
We have had our conveniences too long; it’s time they hit the curb.
Ya heard?
To ‘be fruitful and multiply‘ is still #Word.

Trying to be fruitful and multiply is not being effectively spent,
because Gen’s X, Y, and Z are having trouble paying the rent.

Speaking of Generations, who’s the genius that labeled today’s children: Generation Z?
You thought you were clever, you’re going to hate the next scene:

You get old and fate is mean…
Plant a tree and pray that our land remains green.
The youth are awake, wiser and keen.
You’re not really a luster if you have no sheen;
not much at all without a Middle Class steam.

We’ve been copulating for far too long – The Climax is nothing to fear,

little rascal-spanky_chocolate cake.gifIt’s obvious that I’m concerned about men.
White men, black men, male seeds; my friends.

Where is your mind, what are your thoughts?
Do you know that my love for you can’t be bought?

I am wondering about the topic and what you’ve been taught.
I’m a mother of mindful thinking; abolishing the “after thought.”

You are what you say and you feel what you feel.
Woman is your counterpart; she nourishes and heals.

The boys club can be a fun place when mother takes care of the rest.
You were not born a goalie; blocking your blessings – is not your test.

You know what you need best; I respect you and I agree.
Please be respectful while I do the same for me.

Get in the mind frame of us being a team of WE.
When you think of yourself, do you think about me?

I hope you do, because if our daughters ever find out that you don’t —
Family will still exist, but for you it won’t.

We can’t sustain a life where you feel sorry for yourself
and complain about what you don’t have, while you pocket all the wealth.

I need you to be the superior being that you are and to show the kids
how when the world seems out of reach that you have a connective bid.

Diplomacy, common sense and love can go far.
Use what God gave you: brains and heart.

It’s a good idea to find love in your youth.
Youth equates to just being alive – o’ dude. 😛

No specimen without life is considered to be young.
To live life in the dark is to be considered dumb.

You are not unintelligent and you are not overlooked.
Don’t let negative emotions cause you to feel shook.

Feeling down? You’re not alone – though I need you to shine.
Disney took-on this issue in A WRINKLE IN TIME.

Did you see it?
If not, you can read it.

Whatever you do –  “heed it,” and evolve again.
Life was made for two and circumstances were made to bend.

There’s a relationship issue on the table.
We can turn things around; together we are able.

MAW Has Vision

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on September 16, 2019 at 4:45 am

Lois-Lane-Xray-Vision.jpgI am sure that I am not the only one who knows that Mother Nature and your Mother have superior vision over a host of mysteries that plague a young mind. As long as you live on Earth you will be an adolescent to Mother Nature; not ever an elder. Global Warming has been a thorn in her atmosphere for a very long time and her immune system is fighting back.

Earth will heat up to whatever degree it needs to eradicate her issue. I think our fuel convenience and animal farming is a large part of her issue. I enjoy a chicken sandwich and a hamburger as much as the next American, but to what enth of a degree?

Did your mother ever say to you, “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your own face?” Could you imagine doing such a thing? It sounds silly.

Q: Who would cut off their nose, as if they do not need it on their face? It’s ridiculous. Worst than that, who poison’s the world’s oxygen knowing full well that they, themselves need oxygen to breathe and stay alive?

A:  Humans.

When I was an adolescent and my mother was away from the house and things would go awry between my siblings and me, if I was victimized I’d be the first to say, “I’m telling Mom!”  Mom is a term of respectful endearment but is synonymous with Mama, Mommy, Ma’dear, and even MAW. She gives birth; life. She is for her children’s future – even when their vision is short or tunneled.

Earth is being victimized and I think we need to listen to MAW: Marianne Williamson before we unknowingly burn down our home. Respect Mother Earth and vote to live in a world that offers fresh air to breathe and clean water to drink and respect for every human — because YOU DESERVE IT. The love that a mother has for her children is often misunderstood, but in most cases, she without thought would give her life to save yours. I am only asking for your vote. I am a mother, I love you, and I just want you to live.

comic-book-divider1

What will it take to get you to see
that a maternal love may be the key?

Why not?
Afraid that she’ll wipe our snot?

Do you really prefer a nose full of boogers?
Crystalized mucus is not the same as sugar.

Daddy didn’t tell you because he didn’t know.
Mom grabs a tissue, your nostrils and to town she goes.

It doesn’t feel good, but you look and breathe much better.
Mind you much if she takes a go at healing the weather?

We may not like what she will prescribe…
She will apply the RX to sustain our lives.

Look alive and stay alert. I need you on this.
You may be over 35, but what about the rest of the kids?

Don’t let ill-intentions be hidden, as if we can control burning only half of the house down.
Thinking like that is as archaic as dinosaurs; dinosaurs are no longer around.

If you feel me give me a pound and check out MAW today.
You don’t have to be for #GirlPower to want to live another day.

Just be: For Life.

When I read about the fires in California and the Amazon’s all over the world,
It became quite obvious to me that we may need to listen to a girl…

Her name is EARTH.

Are you listening? Because she’s talking to us all,
I’m Qui
a part of Earth’s “WE” and I truly believe it’s time to listen to MAW.

Have you the gall?
