Sensational Poetry by Always Exploring
This is true beauty from Africa, Decorative garb by a Villager
Making sense of it all and My response to her powerful Poem
I am a descendant of many peoples on this precious planet, from various differing cultural backgrounds, and one of them happens to be African, and from about three differing types of African countries as well. This undeniable fact happens to be through my family blood line, and so stories like this steams up my blood stream a bit "As Always Exploring's poem spoke of", but I have grown wise in my years of travel on this globe to realize many great lies and all throughout history, one of which is that fact that people just like myself, mere mortals were actually masters of people.
Much of my ancestral background though stems from the Americas from 3 types of Native American, Central America, South America, as well as North America, I also have European blood in me as well from my Mother & Fathers side of the family.
My personal beliefs
The part I never really accepted as a youth while learning of such unfair things as slavery and many of the negative connotations associated with it, was the word usage of such things as Master & Slave as well as the harmful degrading racial slurs that derived from such a retched condition for both parties involved. Now, still to this very day I do believe that mankind has made some huge errors, and its up to us all to undue whats been wrongly done, and so this is why I have arrived today in the flesh the way I am, a true freedom fighter of self expression using words, and much of my hyper active creativity, sharing, networking, and all both online and offline on the ground.
I am also a person who believes that true freedom isn't something attained, or reached it is god given & to us all, and man has merely learned of some pretty cruel ways to try and deny us of such god given rights, from time to time. This didn't only happen to the people from the African Diaspora which I'm sure you know, its happened to many people worldwide, even today it is still happening such inhumane injustices and human brutality somewhat identical to what you wrote in your poem.
Today its safe to say that it continues to happen, but I shall do my duty to put it all to and end once and for all, with my writings, creativity, and compassion for that of the true human spirit of forgiveness.
"Thank you Always Exploring for bringing out this side of me today, I truly am appreciative of your poetic words of true inspiration, and I will do my best to help you get the word out."
These two Ladies are the end product of amazing beauty from Africa
The deep onset of roots
I have a great deal of deeply inherited genes from all over the globe, African is the number one most intensely embedded family connection, I have in my genealogy. I am proud of having such colorful ancestry today, and mainly because I do believe that African people of color, are actually quite beautiful.
I just wish I could go back in time and be able to make a difference way back when, because the "White man", as Always Exploring put it in her poem there, definitely made a grave error in our history, what was done to my ancestors, will never ever be forgotten, and even long after I rest in my permanent death bed, humanity has been scarred forever, and even till the day of reckoning, because inhumane acts like Slavery, cannot ever be justified by anyone, and by any walk of life on this planetary system.
I would like to say that my life was affected tremendously by the very fact of me initially learning in school that there was a thing such as slavery that once had been in existence, I will never forget the trauma I had suffered as a very emotional child, and it was very hurtful to think that humans have actually treated one another in such manners of ways. I just cannot understand what it is that drives us to be so selfish, so hateful, so destructive, so unrighteous, so callous, so greedy, and most of all so barbaric.
It was a senseless war zone
Great wars of today & injustice continues onwards, Where is God? Where is the love folks?
One thing is, god must indeed exist, because if it weren't for him, none of these things would have occurred in our human history the way it has. I know that in the animal kingdom, there is species of animals that have had wars with one another, that have went through ordeals of all sorts to make honest attempts at surviving a vicious climate or habitat they live in, but even that doesn't justify the cruelty that was done to the African people many years back, and also to that of the Jewish people by Adolf Hitler, and most recently to the Arabic people over in Iraq.
What is there to say to the youth who grow up from places such as the middle east, that have been bombarded by our Brigadier Generals, and massive fleets, armies, drone fighter robots, and other powerful crushing weapons, and when they had very little if any defenses in the hot desert there. For some odd reason though we still continued to wage a senseless ongoing war against a place that did no harm to the United States of America.
Ok, well Afghanistan may have had it coming (it appears), but why all the senseless continuous wars that still lingers onwards? These are things that I tend to ponder on today, Why oh Why?, and even if it doesn't appear to be like a sort of slavery system, where the people are openly being brutalized daily, and humiliated, its still not right what has gone on for way over 10 years on end. If you feel the slightest bit of a pulse here, please leave a comment about it, because this is something that also needs to be discussed by all of us humans today, or things like this may continue to go on and on and on.
Humanity Change Poll
Do you think humanity has hope to change for the better?
To end this message on a more positive note
Our current president commander and chief is both African American, and Caucasian, so this means that we all definitely have hope today, to achieve some sort of global unity between all of our differences, age old hatreds, animosities, vendetta's and the likes. I think with a great push towards doing whats right for us all, in more positive ways, we can and will achieve such a glorified moment in time, and all the hatred shall diminish.
History surely tells the tale for much of humanity, but an unseen future of prosperity is ahead, if we all choose to utilize such a history to pave yet a smarter course of direction, and away from doing harm to one another. If we strive to be more fair to our common brothers and sisters of differing racial, and ethnic back grounds, such a reality shall come fourth, and I do know much work has already been done to achieve such a thing, but much more needs to be done to make it a true reality for all walks of life, and not just for us here in the United States.
Much of the globe itself needs to heal, many countless people world wide need to be given a fair chance to make it as well, as opposed to being bullied on, and abused mainly because they either look different or because they have differing ways of life. I will pray for such a change to come sooner then later for all of humanity.
