under the sun
this is a beautiful world
it's just that the beauty is hidden deep
behind war and crime and social injustice
and hurting people

I don't like the reality of what
this world stands for
where it's been
where it's going

I don't like knowing
that the beautiful things
are overshadowed by the evil
and the hatred that seethes
in the heart of many

knowing that
the holocaust and schindlers list
roots~amistad~the ghosts of mississippi
and the kkk
hiroshima and gallipoli
and vietnam
are all part of my history
and the blood and the hurt and the pain
is still evident today

I hate that
when I turn on my tv
I get to see babies starving in asia and africa
living in abject poverty
or knowing that for every second
in my day
some rapist is having his way with a
woman or child ~ somewhere
or that every 6 seconds
someone dies
and no-one asks why

and my emotions
get confused and abused
with all the knowledge
of what the world is really like
so I have to take time out
to remember that somewhere
good things are happening

I have to keep reminding myself
that somewhere out there
people love~laugh~care
and reach out their hand
to help their fellow man

I have to make sure
I recognise the beauty
before the ugliness
kills me

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
