I think it’s time to get into some trouble.
I’ve been writing since I was, what…12 or so…maybe 11.
I’m sometimes good at it
With brief sparks of clarityand beauty (I think).
I started and written many blogs in my life
Hundreds of posts
and diarrhea (sorry about that)
I started a blog called “Lynch”
the day after Trump was elected
The first poem was called”Rooting for Trump”.
It was my outlet for processing the world.
I love social media for what it makes possible
I hate social media for what it makes possible
I work to stay on the “love” side
The more I face the violence
and apathy in myself
the more I find the necessity for art
because art transcends externalities
and has the potential to touch souls
and now, more than ever,
touching souls is what I think we need,
It’s what I need.
There is so much that has been unsaid
There is so much that has been left unsaid
As a male as a man as a boy
I am conditioned to heroic stoicism
I benefit from my silence
Not a real benefit
But the perception of safety
The perception of acceptance
My benefit is only a perception
and is not real
In fact, if I am a good person,which I realize I am,
the reality is my silence
has created the world
And I think the world needs to change
so I think trying a different approach might be good.
As the GREAT Peter Tosh sings
“I don’t want no peace, I want
equal rights and justice”.
Before anything and anyone
My son and all those I love
I want justice for myself
my internal self
and without speaking
I can never know my internal self
and if I can not know my Internal self
I cannot have justice for myself
and if I cannot have justice for myself
I can never attempt to offer justice to the world.
There is so much to say
So much to express
so much pain
so much love
and much fear
and much hate
So with the intent to pierce hate
and to temper fear with Character
I will be releasing “LYNCH”
to the world
I hope you’re affected
In a way that touches
