It Was in the Air

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...

It Was In The Air

​It was in the Air… Moving Swiftly, Silently, Destroying Order and Creating Chaos…

Attacking families, friends, husbands and wives, blowing constantly in the air of unsuspected children and turning them into killers of self and others caught in their destructive path…

It was in the Air … Preying on the children of God and teaching them how to live in reverse so that generations after generations keep being cursed…

It was in the Air…Desperate faces, angry faces, despondent faces, all in pain, all seeking relief from their full time grief…

Attacks against the flesh, attacks against the spirit, attacks against the Words of God, has intensified…

Evil hands are showing up with guns blazing attacking schools, attacking innocence, and attacking just because it can and anyone can own a gun...

Unjust laws, affluenza, favoritism and racism keeps protecting the guilty, keeps freeing the guilty and many times not even charging the guilty with some crimes that boggles the mind.

It was in the Air…Protest, unrest, distress and racism beating on its chest…

Bombs bursting in the air, suicide bombers appearing any and every where...

Inclusion is still an Illusion, equality is still not on equal bases with all the races of mankind...

It was in the Air… Making it hard to breathe for the seeing eyes and the eyes that realize that racism didn’t die and they refuse to accept that lie…

Something has been unleashed and it is bringing out the beast in men, women and children…

They never should have picked the lock on Pandora's Box...

People better do more than praying, and start paying more attention, because something has invaded the air and when it appears , Pain follows...

Look beyond the control fogs and don't give up on God...

Be vigilant, be alert for signs of an affected mind poisoning the air, with despair...

Pay attention to the tweets there only true purpose is to disturb the peace and distract you from what is really going on behind closed doors...

Pay attention to the callousness from attitudes that refuse to acknowledge that Human Rights are God-Given-Rights, that Every Race is Entitled to.

Pandora's box, they never should have picked the lock...

      Yes, well said. I agree. Love ... big word. Let us strive ... it's never easy. God grant us His wisdom; His Peace ... the river Jordan is not only reachable but inevitable. You seem clued on. Loving thoughts.

      The advocates for a greater humanity will never remain mute, and it is through their prose, poem, songs, and wisdom talks, which will help humanity continues it growth...Who Knows WHY? not I...

      It's being said : "If you See Something, Say Something... I did!

      This is one take on it, Malik and I appreciate your response. Presidents come from the same or similar schools, colleges, universities ... as the microcosm, they tend to reflect similar views to the macrocosm.

      Case in point is that the President won the electoral vote, never mind the argument about the majority. It's still a lot of votes, right?

      Prophets say that a disruptive society is a reflection of society and not the views of a person; they say that we get what we want or deserve.

      My initial question was deliberate. The ideals we cherish and hold dear, spring from the Jefferson's; the Emersons; the Christ's; the Lincoln's ... only our Energy (Spirit or Consciousness), do not reflect their own. We repeat cliches like 'Love yourself.' and 'Be the change you want to see.' Who understands?

      Light must descend into darkness, as the dark cannot fight the dark and win and right now God wants us, perhaps, to do our part, individually and collectively, to love and elevate mankind. Are we lacking in will, perhaps?

      We are still living in Times where Civil Rights are deemed more important than Human Rights and until that is resolved, there will always be Something In The Air...

      Well, you seem to express it very well in your poetry. Very vivid and realistic account, I must say. But why is it all happening, Bro? Do you know?
