Don’t Stop

In Communication, Griot, Politics, Self Improvement on November 6, 2020 at 7:48 am

As it pertains to good love, good food, and good drink: Don’t Stop. Keep going, and give us more like the evolution of hip hop. 

Hasn’t hip hop evolved? If not – it surely will. Eventually the listening audience will require an intellectual fill. 

Knowledge-laced rap will be a demand. Communications are still barbaric in this era of  man.

Change is in the process, please Don’t Stop. Get wisdom while the-getting-is-good and higher education is hot.

If you have votes to count — don’t stop that either. America ISO a new route and/or a new driver.

Michelle Obama’s moma is right – please believe her. Do not stand in the round of jesters & clowns. “Keep it moving;you’re a leader.

Don’t Stop believing in good and all that you know — based on how your neighbors decided to vote. 

It’s okay. Because what they didn’t know — is that the world is governed by God, and voting is a civil show. 

Just a pulse of the American people – who tout “in God we trust” and prop up steeples.

Hmph. Thank God that all Americans are not the same. From cars, color of skin, and texture of mane — we are so not the same. 

Differences can be measured in the uneducated or smart; but the real differences that divide Americans reside in our hearts.

WHO ARE WE?

We are children of God. We are not God and we err all of the time. There’s so much we need to discuss beyond this summary in rhyme. 

We have work to do. Good thing that I’m into it and still in love with you. 

Good love… Don’t Stop. In or out of societal fashion, love is still hot. 

The 2020 Election ballot’s are still being counted 3-days after the election —

and it looks like this country is headed in a new direction. 

You and Ilet’s communicate. Care to make a connection? — The last 3.8 years have been void of sincere affection. 

As the vote tally rises I’m looking for a couple of pleasant surprises:

  • I want a new day to set and begin.
  • I want you and I to get more unity in.

We’re more than half-way done with vote counting, the 2020 Election turnout rocked!

I’m Qui

Much respect to thee, I wish a better era for we – so on “the vote counting,” please 

Monday Morning Goodness

sunrise

Goodness always rises – so rise, kinfolk, rise!
Thank God for the day as you open your eyes.

Pull the curtains back and look into the sky,
then hit the home gym, because you’re high on life.

You don’t have a home gym? You’re just not living that large?
Who are you kidding? You have the living room and a big ol’ garage.

Those spaces are good enough! You just need a little room.
Resort to exercise and reading more to forgo “outing dooms.”

It is not safe to mingle and relax social distancing rules; take it slow.
Going out is for essential workers, city managers and confused folk?

I love us all, but we have got to be real.
You may be bored indoors, but COVID19 has the field.

Please don’t feel invincible now;
don’t say “frack it” and go out anyhow.

I really don’t understand…
Why don’t we act more cautious across the land?

For the sake of capitalism?
Hmph. I raise you 1 wisdom:

clowns-in-clown-car

Don’t ride with the clowns.

Don’t join that clown-cramped parade.
The country opening up “regardless” – is a charade.
Science says: “It just isn’t safe.”

Monday Morning Goodness, please be good to us on a whole.
Help us to resist walking and running into a big ol’ hole.

We can do this.
Common sense and compassion will pull us through this.

Don’t huff & puff or hiss — because you have to keep your distance today,
I’m Qui
Excited about we, Mondays and Goodness.  Our united legacy is in play.

Attuned

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement, TV Shows on January 31, 2020 at 1:35 am

attuned-optical-illusion.gif

One thing that I am not into is fear.
God is real and I hold His word dear.

So, while the impeachment show dominated all screens –
I kept my mind focused on the one true King.

I did. I really did.
And the view of satellite news hit the bin.

Shame so deep; senators whose faces should be hid.
I will study them not. “A better life,” is my bid.

Honey child/beloved kid: please don’t get caught up
in between the clutches of folks kissing other folks butt’s.

No balls and all nuts. I have been keeping tabs
on the game of “hockey with our democracy” and the constitutional jabs.

Republicans, dear Republicans what do you stand to win
by supporting ‘no support for yourself’ and an admin that isn’t your friend?

Most of its roster ends up behind bars.
That type of cameo paints no one a star.
Oh no, child. Not by far.

Take a deep breath and think about your life.
Are you refreshed or stressed when you open your eyes

in the morning? To be alive is a blessing
please don’t spend it “status-quo” stressing.

Time is non-refundable and no one knows when they will die.
One thing I don’t do is wait; I stay in search of my best life.

I think about you and I and I’m inspired to write.
I turn the television off for more attuned insight.

So how’s it going with you? Are you feeling alright?
I’m finally turning-in
from last nights editing gig –
‘and don’t want the sun to catch my eyes.alice-in-wonderland-curtsey-bow.gif

I just didn’t want to turn-in before checking in with you
and say: “this week of impeach – I’m happy to bid adieu.”

As for our future and what it may hold —
I encourage us all to be vigilant and vote.

I enjoyed-not the senators show
and I am aware that we can change it with our vote.

So let’s do it; keeping this moment in mind.
Utilize your DVR and often rewind.

Reality was unkind. Please give all concerns to God. He rocks.
A man’s expand is limited to land and will always be in a box

if he intends to harm and/or oppress.
I’m always asking you to pray, now I’m asking you to not stress.

This moment is only a test.
Serious about your spirituality? Then be your best.

Energy is real.
Isolate it or become physically ill.

Consider using this weekend to disconnect and unplug,
surround yourself with good people and give them a hug.

When you kneel to pray, ask God to fill-up your cup
with the fruits of the spirit and a double-dose of love.

Don’t forget to request of God in all of His givin’
that He bless you and I with an abundance of wisdom.

You deserve it. I believe that I do, too.
I’m Qui
Have a fantastic weekend and don’t forget that I love you.

Control the narrative of this story by taking daily notes
and paint a clear picture when next you go to the poll.

Shame on SHAME

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on November 4, 2019 at 5:15 am

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.

tom-jerry-spanking.gif

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.

Ya’ heard?

Above The Fray

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on June 12, 2019 at 5:15 am

fray.jpg

THINK ABOUT IT: Fray is most accepted on a burlap sack – and even then it may be frowned upon depending on what’s in the sack.

Remain there.
Be steady – even when it ain’t fair.

Keep your nose clean – to keep law officials out of your hair.
You can do all of that & then some and still find no advantage there…

initially.
To equate the universes sway to a human peer’s way – will miss me.

I suggest that we take a good look at all situations.
Are they of well-crafted design or fray via communication?

Look at it closely and if there is indeed a sign of discord or tear
“above the fray,” I appeal to you and please remain there.

Do it for you, because it is who you are and what you will and won’t allow.
Lest you lose your bluff and out comes this stuff: “Do what?” then a Boom-Pow!

Please do not let that be you.
Let “being above the fray” be your habitual cue.

This hump day is owned by you and I. Do tell me whatcha got up?
Me? I’m doing some production work remotely — here in the cut.

If you’re down to help me out on lights during my pending shoot – do send me a text.
I’m about crew collaboration. If not this time, let’s hook up on the next.

Time is of the essence. If we take our eyes off of it, it will surely get away.
I’m into being the most productive; my positive cloud space overcasts all fray.

He-ey! Happy hump day to ya! Be happy and remain there,
I’m Qui
Glad to be leaving this note for thee, simply because I care.

Now you know, so go to & fro and conquer the day.
And if that co-worker says one more ill-word to you — keep your head

Museful Monday

muse.gifMmm. Good morning baby, (as I roll in the bed towards you).
Do tell me what you want to do.

Shall we arise, make productive hay, and raise the tent
of intellect on the day? Equate it to wisdom spent?

Of course, we should.
Let intellect be the wood

that receivers want to surf.
Let an understanding be our fundamental turf.

How’s your headspace? How’s your body today?
Ditch the seriousness for gamification and play.

What type of productive term relation is Gamification?

The term incorporates the use of game mechanics and experience design
to digitally engage and motivate people to achieve their goals.”
—————–
Gamification is the way to get it, yo!

The day is new and poised to be a fun day.
Let’s rise to the occasion of another fantastic Monday.

You muse me, I want you and together “we”
should dedicate this space to positivity.

Monday is the space that we will make positive space out of,
I’m Qui
Good morning dear Muse, please accept my Day 1. Love.

Let’s consummate our intentions with a breast-to-breast hug:

RIGHT NOW

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Politics on May 30, 2019 at 12:45 am

Mustafa_Cymba_sunrise.gif

At current — this Thursday is parched
with the thirst of the public’s revelation – at its start.

Right Now that’s what’s going on.
No more singing the “blind clarity” song.

Did you see via Robert Mueller’s lenses?
Words were legal but there were no minces.

He said, in the report ‘that if he could, he would
have told us that the prez was innocent and that all was good

then he said, ‘but the report didn’t state that,’
because that wouldn’t have been a revelation of the facts.

What you say? And um, do what?
Right Now the White House’s lawn looks rough.

So far, so far
[we are] from the word salad of Barr.

Hardy-har-har? I don’t think it’s funny at all.
For the low-hanging “i-word” – many are mid-call.

The speaker of the house resides in a decision-stall. It isn’t easy.
She still remembers what happened to the Repubs when they impeached Bill Cleezy.

Bill Clinton was impeached for lying — one time.
Congress needs to step up and put it all on the line.

Don’t be scared this time.
Follow the constitutions etch and all will be fine.

I will be honest with you,
I’m a bit on-the-fence too.

‘Not overly optimistic about pulling anyone out of position.
I’d rather see our current course just cease;
put the country’s degradation in remission.

That’s all.
To take a breath; an intellectual stall

like the speaker of the house.
Wisdom at the highest levels is still allowed.

Yes-boom pow!
Let’s all reassess, Right Now.

Be not hasty in making any moves.
Adhere to the constitution for leading grooves.

At current — this Thursday is looking kind of parched
with thirst from the public’s inquisition at its start.

Now what? And how now brown cow?

Chronicling a change in the air and it’s happening Right Now.

The Hairy Hump

It needs a shave or maybe a laser.
If the bush is unruly, maybe a taser?

Arrest the entanglement of idiocracy
and return this fine union to inclusive Democracy.

The old hairy hump is upon us again.
I’m taking her to the mat – I’m slated to win.

After today, my weekend officially begins.
I like to roll downhill with a paycheck and friends

to the bank.
Whatchu thank?

This isn’t a time in history where I should go to the mall
without a care for tomorrow‘s fare and spend it all.

If there ever was a time.
Today is that day that you save your dimes.

Start putting away coins; do put away plenty.
A recession is trying to court the U.S. in 2020.

Remember the last time that happened? Good times went to louse.
Also, I distinctly remember it being started by a Repub in the White House.

Dean_Winchester_spits_out_water.gif

I think Jensen Ackles has some of the best reactions

Are we really headed in that direction again?
Well, about that paycheck – please don’t spend.

Save today — or tomorrow you will throat-a-lump.
This is your wisdom cue on this hairy hump.

Take it. Take it.
Take a moment to prepare so that you can make it.

The Hairy Hump always needs a manicure,
I’m Qui
seeding a little foresight and wisdom into your core.

Have a fantastic Wednesday – please know that I love you and that I care.
As for our vantage view atop of this hump, stand in the parting of the hair.

You can guess what’s in the details…

When it comes to bull corn do you really need to know —
down to the last detail from whence it traveled to and fro?

Will not knowing truly throw you into a rut?
You already know what you need to know – just check-in with your gut.

Sit quietly with eyes closed and ask the universe a question or two —
then check-in with your intuition; it’s always true to you.

Then open your eyes and thank God for the depths of truth.
Thank God that you’re not going to hell in a hand basket; His grace is holding you.

So what – if you’ll never know if a man is telling the truth from the start.
Let folks say what they want – know that God knows their heart.

Embracing this grace will prove you to look and feel smart.
Don’t let questionable chatter and worldly banter pierce your heart.

Staying focused on God is indeed a necessary art.
Your intuition is your compass; use it to chart.

What are your thoughts? Do tell what you think.
I’m Qui
and you’re quite intuitive if you think something stinks.

What I Do Know

salt-shaker-dance.gif

A seasoned dancer.

I do know that God is real and that in Him I trust.
What crimes need be committed to warrant the chant: “Lock her up?”

I suppose if Mueller found no wrong doings – then the Clintons must be squeaky clean.
I also know the government does what it wants to take-away from and to add-to any scene.

The worlds way… it’s an old thing, it’s musty and resembles an old box.
I do know that my intuition is gold and that my connection with God rocks.

It’s also true that if you don’t stand for something that you will fall for any old thing.
I do know that we have a creator and it is of Him, to thee I sing.

Wear the cares of this world like salt over your shoulder,”
after mom delivered me those words she turned to granny and said, “I told her!

My ancestors wanted me to know that there is nothing new under the sun.
What I Do Know is that they weren’t lying. Today’s safety is in Wisdom. Get you some.

Don’t spend your time running in packs devised under peer-influenced controls.
God is watching and time is clocking; Vote your interests and pray for your soul.

I don’t need to know it all,
to know not to fall.

This is What I do Know.

What you do with today is solely on you.
Don’t play to the mundane. Call it “an old thang” – that you just don’t do.
On the real, if you want to heal then turn off the news too.

 LET’S ROCK OUT ON LOVE –
It may be our last true defense.

stick-figure-love

Okay. You know me well and how I feel about love.
I’m down to start my day with grown play,  a smile and a genuine hug.

I’m down to tell you just how much your good energy makes me smile.
I do believe love makes cross-country journeying feel like one mile.

Unbiased love is the good stuff, child.
Give some today; be guilty of doling it out.

A good life is yours to live and requires not one day of pout.
Give it and it’ll come back to you; love uses a boomerang rout.

When was the last time that you were God-smacked with love?
I’m Qui
and I’m God-smacking you now. Open up, I’m coming in for the hug.

A WISE SAY: Yesterday, The other day and Today

Seeds of wisdom

The bed you make may be your own.
Consequences matter from a kid all the way to grown.

Be quick to apologize if you’re the one in the wrong
and always pay royalties if you use other artists words to make songs.

That’s just good advice 
if you want to avoid a drama-filled life.

Me? I’m doing quite alright. I’m always digging the wiser say.
Anytime that you may find  me “quiet to the riot” I’m usually in Proverbs phase:

proverbs15-31

To myself and others, I always say:
Pick and choose your battles and be clear about your plight.
Don’t throw your weight around if you’re not prepared to fight.

Aggression is aggression, there is no such thing as a “slight.”
Again, Don’t throw your weight around if you’re not prepared to fight.

img_4439A WISE SAY: Yesterday, The other day and Today
Is nothing more, really – than COMMON SENSE in your face.

If you’re in the car but not behind the wheel – I suggest you pray.
Especially if the drivers skill are comparable to the roller coaster: Run Away.

As in old, herky-jerky, extreme sharp turns and full of thwarted thrills.
Click the roller coaster link; the Run Away is real. 🙂

Remember that a roller coaster ride is limited to its designated tracks,
walk your journey, know your road, don’t be side-tracked by this and that.

The world stage is too big for any type of menial tit for tat,
so if you have issue with your brother — please leave it at that.

Do not go global, do not take to Twitter or Facebook.
Take it God and maybe your best friend, then jot it in a journal book.
Lock it up so that your counters don’t take a look.

That’s A WISE SAY: Yesterday, The other day and Today…
All of your thoughts need not be aired. Some – you can put away.

However, if you’re all about healing the world, what ails the people or unity on a whole,
Hit-up your girl, Qui. To me, that’s Project: GOLD. I’m always down to positively affect the soul.

Good morning to you, be on your wisest beat,
