Stop Shaming

1 Comment

radicalhope:

I was seriously shamed in college by students and professors because of having depression. I’ve lived through it, but it was extremely painful. I wish they, ( a few at most), could read this and understand how much the shaming hurt. The way some of those people tore me down makes me think about how I am seeing and judging others. I appreciate this post.

Stop shaming people who do not look like you
Just because they don’t act or think like you do
They are still humans with feelings too
No one is perfect
We all have certain issues
No need to add to another’s stuff
Learn to help someone
Or keep your mouth shut
We all deal with enough.

the warrior reminder by Erykah Badu

“the warrior reminder”
i am awake
my mind is free
i am creative
i love myself
my willpower is strong
i am brave
i practice patience
i don’t judge folks
i give, not to receive
i don’t expect
i accept
i listen more than i talk
i know i’ll change
i know you’ll change
i”ll hold on one more day
i start over when necessary
i create my own situations
i am cosmic
i do not have the answers
i desire to learn
i am the plan
i am strong
i am weak
i want to grow
i know i will
i take on responsibility
i hide myself from no one
i’m on my path
warriors walk alone
i won’t let my focus change
taking out the demons in my range

that’s mama’s gun

Life is Fine. Right? Right.

“Life is Fine”
Langston Hughes, 1902 – 1967

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn’t,
So I jumped in and sank.

I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn’t a-been so cold
I might’ve sunk and died.

But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!

I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.

I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn’t a-been so high
I might’ve jumped and died.

But it was High up there! It was high!

So since I’m still here livin’,
I guess I will live on.
I could’ve died for love—
But for livin’ I was born

Though you may hear me holler,
And you may see me cry—
I’ll be dogged, sweet baby,
If you gonna see me die.

Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!
