It seems like I have fallen back in the same place. Life is but a cruel game we are forced to play.. I’m struggling between the idea of justice, compassion and all of those emotions dealing with relationships and individualism. Self interest is what fuels everything. Those like me who are to dumb to see that are swept away with the tide. Those who last, fall in love forever, become rich, are those who understand that your self comes first.
Seems like I’m back in the Void…

Scenes from before the civil war in Syria
The unrest in Syria that swiftly turned into an escalating civil war began in 2011, and with no end in sight, the pre-war country fades further and further into the distance. Now, with the possibility of U.S. military intervention, depending on congressional action and President Obama, take a look at what life was once like in the war-torn country.

the94thchamber: I Am Joaquin by Rodolfo Corky Gonzales
Yo soy Joaquín,
perdido en un mundo de confusión:
I am Joaquín, lost in a world of confusion,
caught up in the whirl of a gringo society,
confused by the rules, scorned by attitudes,
suppressed by manipulation, and destroyed by modern society.
My fathers have lost the economic battle

Anonymous asked: What is your advice to a young writer and aspiring rapper who isn't very confident or pleased with their voice?
Just keep working at it. The main cause of voice issues is confidence. Which comes with practice. I still have voice issues. But once you get comfortable, if you have the words and the message you can do big things. Also dont be afraid to show true emotion when you are rhyming. Like not just getting louder when something is emotional but actually express that emotion. Let yourself become vaulnerable. As artists we owe the audience that vulnerablity.
We often use assumptions to better relate/dicconect ourseleves with a group. We often make these assumptions based off isolated experiances with someone and the characteristics that person displays during the isolated events.
For example a general assumption often seen in Western culture are “gender specific acts”. Men are to be without weakness, cannot show saddness or many emotions, cannot wear or dress in what is deemed as “feminine clothes”, and so much more. While not everyone believes that they think this way I’m here to tell you that you do, myself included.
Am I saying assumption are evil. Maybe not, but there does lie a darker power in these assumption.
Assumptions allow us as human beings to avoide discovery. We chose to bring the conclusion to ourself instead of finding out.
So why say this…
Well I encourage you to ask question, dont assume, asuure. Reach out to people through inquiry, that is my challange for you today

Last Saturday, July 27, about 13,200 gallons (50,000 liters) of crude oil spilled into the Gulf of Thailand, pouring from a leaky pipeline, creating a huge slick miles wide. The oil slick soon began washing ashore on the tourist island of Samet, fouling several popular white sand beaches, and now has spread to nearby smaller islands. Pipeline operator PTT Global Chemical Plc. has apologized and pledges to have the spill cleaned within days, as tourism officials have raised alarms about the sharp drop in tourist dollars. Gathered here are images of the early clean-up work taking place on Thailand’s Samet Island.
