24 CHANGE MUST BE SELF-MOTIVATED NOT FORCED.


Wrapped in Joy by Salaam Muhammad
If I change solely for your benefit
Who then am I?
Where do I fit in?
Where do I factor?
Where do I exist?
If you want a mindless twit
Please, pick up the remote
It will do as you say,
When you say
How you say
And be vocal only when you dictate
Allow me to enlighten you
Just in case,
You
Mistake my compromises as subservience
My silence as consent to mutilate my self-esteem
Use my psyche to defecate on my integrity
In an attempt to erase my identity
So you can bask in your false notions of superiority
My transformation is my responsibility
My power begins in me and ends with me
My evolution is my determination
I say who,
I say what,
I say when,
I say where,
I say why
In the right time,
In the appropriate way
For reasons that are relevant to me,
My life,
My happiness
I am content with who I am
Joy radiates through me and in me
It is not dependent upon your presence
It was there before you and it will be there after you
Make no mistake
I
Do not need,
Nor do I seek your approval
Thank you for the lessons
Thank you for reminding me,
That I am a blessing
That I am blessed
Now
There is the door,
Don’t let it hit you in the ass on your way out.
See yah!

  7. Absolutely, the desire to change and the will to change must come from within; and at times, all of us need to look within.

  10. "change must be self-motivated not forced" Indeed, what is change for, if not for your self? Let us live life, the way we wanted it to be.
