      In this life, there are brief moments of perfection. All moments, when accepted for what they are, both good and bad, when accepted, for what they are, perfect.

      Perfection is merely a perception. Society, industry, the media has cast molds as to what the standards of perfection are. Humanity has been brainwashed, thirty seconds at a time by a little screen that plays advertisements in between the regular programming telling us you are too fat, you are too bald, your penis is flaccid, buy our pills!

      Reality is accept yourself as you are, make changes only for yourself, you are perfect as you are or as you choose to be.

      I was born in a small town in 1970.

      Trying to hold onto the 50's, throughout the 60's and trying even harder in the 70's as the way things were slipped from their grasp.

      I watched the Archie Bunkers slowly change their ways. There was very little diversity.

      But change, change comes, regardless, the harder you hold onto the past the harder change takes you.

      The tree that bends stands once again when the weight of the wind is taken back, the tree that doesn't snaps.

      We must not fear that which is different because it is different.

      We open the door to be distracted from that which we should righteously fear.

      Humanity is constantly manipulated.

      Reality of humanity

      So much insensitivity

      To the diversity

      Perhaps we change this sick perversity

      For inside

      We all take the same ride

      As the world grows smaller

      There is no place to hide

      We must blend and mend

      Learn to accept our difference

      Put down the fist

      We must resist

      The urge to be herded to fear each other

      Sisters and brothers

      Turned on each other

      So the masters of the nations

      Commit subjugation

      Wearing fancy coats

      Keep us at each other's throats

      So they can profit from the poisons that they feed us.

      You stand, you raise your hands in the air, you send a message, you are a protester deserving the protection of the police.

      You wear a mask, you burn, you loot, you are a criminal deserving to be arrested, detained and prosecuted by the police.

      You fire bomb a business, private or public building and you are now a threat to the greater public and deserve what you get.

      Be a part of the solution rather than fueling the division, the incision which destroys unity we must unite and stand together to stage a peaceful coup and hold those who manipulate the masses against each other to allow them free reign to attain great wealth at the expense of the masses.

      It sickens me, what goes down in Baltimore. Somebody is stirring the fire, the flames grow higher and black and white grow further divided.

      The more we make things about race the easier we make it for the true villains to commit their crimes against all of us.

      If we want to save our kind, humanity, we must unite, we must educate each other.

      All races, all religions, all genders, all people. By dividing us large corporations manipulate laws in manners that allow them to sell us poison as labelled as food. If they keep us at each other we remain ignorant to their actions as we are too busy hating to be paying attention.

      We must unite, we must scrutinize the politicians who are bought and sold by the business man. Politicians are a traded commodity. If we do not our people are doomed.

      We do not have to be the same to see eye to eye.

      We do not always need to see eye to eye.

      For we are all the same, and we are all different at the same time.

      This is what it is to be human.

      In order to be at peace, to stop the insanity created by humanity, we must open our minds, look into each others eyes, see the truth, and realize what a diverse species we are.
