Last year after Trump won the election and Kanye went to the Trump Tower to what seemed to be to pose and cozy up to him, I was enraged with an intense anger in my heart. My heart exploded so, that my mind could not think clearly. After taking a few days of refuge to breathe so that I can think again I was able to see how short-sighted I was. This onset was not without preparation either, I had been traveling the country and then working the polls during the primary elections and had been telling some of my friends I saw Trump taking it all. I wasn’t buying the left-wing polls, I was listening to the people. When I returned to California others were laughing while taking the spectacle as joke, I was beginning to boil over with outrage as I expected his upcoming victory. However, it was like loosing use of my legs as an onlooking speeding train blazed straight toward me. Petrified in anger and feeling there was nothing I could do.

By the time election day was approaching I had already went through my acceptance phase of grief and was dishing out hard blunt truths. But a dull blade as this was merely only a training weapon for defense, and no tool with which to build on. After several marches, protests, and organizations, the resistance was looking futile. It was far past due time Americans took to the street for what they believe, energy felt more rampant than ever, but the focus was blurry. The young had the desire and drive but were new to this; and the old had the know-how and wherewithal yet man had quite frankly forgotten what democracy looks like. ‘Democracy is most certainly not a spectator sport’ and it was a grand spectacle watching our neighbors go by the throat at one another deciphering our way through it all. The first amendment smelt of decay and fresh blood and it was so fucking beautiful.

Finding my way through it, all the while knowing that no piece of paper is sovereign enough to define my rights. We are human, not a law nor barcode. ‘You have the right, as a human being’; that is to say, ‘I exist, and that’s it!’ Which is not to say that these laws have no decree, but rather that a human being is beyond law. Cher ami, remember this: No gods, no idols…The people of this nation are far too great to be led by a president. For acquiescing to a belief that is not your own is your choice alone, no matter how much a ‘shock doctrine’ may convince you it was your choice all along. And freedom that opposes another’s freedom is not freedom, but oppression. In the words of my friend Tim Holland, “I’m not anti-anything, I’m anti-everything, it fits better.” And thus, within this search of finding my way through I was fortunate to come across a stone where then turned I am able to fight against terrible policies proposed by Trump, Bannon, and the powers that be, with several amazing organizations that do not give in but instead resist with all might on the daily. I am so grateful to be active in democracy, for tyranny reigns when the people refuse to take action. So act daily, for the final judgment is always upon us dear human family. Hating Trump does one no good and only brings one anger and hatred within self, but loving one another will keep stirring the fire in heart to stand for what you believe. “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” ‘for we are all we have, and thus, it does not take each of Us, but all of Us.’

For whom this may concern, many blessings to thee, read this prayer in thy heart:

The Prayer to St Jude

O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honoureth and invoketh thee universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, and of things almost despaired of.

Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of.

Come to mine assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolation and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity.

I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour, to always honour thee as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to thee.

Amen.

Trump is a disaster with issues on climate change, true. But the change of our economical structure is inevitable as solar, wind, and renewable energy sources grow less and less expensive they are passing that curve where coal is too expensive thus forcing more and more coal plants to shut down and large corporations switching over to renewables because not only are they cleaner and more efficient, but they are becoming more economically beneficial for them as well. Therefore, our environment will not be saved by political reasons, but because of economical reasons. Silver lining yah yah, keep hope ey 😉😇

I was talking to a DACA recipient last night and his story of how his family came over here is incredible. His mom came here when he was five and his little brother was born here. They are super loving people and hard workers, all of them have no criminal record and multiple jobs. If Trump’s DACA plans are to go through after these six months here, his little brother would be left here without a family and him and his mother would have to leave their family and work to go to Mexico where there is no family or livelihood waiting for them. Please write your local representatives to stand up for DACA. Text “RESIST” to 50409

Hops on soapbox:
No one needs you. They prefer your presence in their life. Self-preservation of life is the first law of nature. Despite how much we may think we need someone, we learn to live without them if we have to.

Thus, what this need we feel is, is a selfless love to share part of our life with one another. Therefore overwhelming gratitude to my family and friends who prefer sharing part of their life with me. Thank you for not needing me, yet still choosing my presence. Infinite Love

*hops off soapbox*

The difference between the truth of this world and the truth of Love is that one divides and tears down and One builds up and gives grace. The alikeness is each truth pisses everyone off in one way or another 😂

The mystical Black Lion looks out ahead with his eyes fixed and focused out unto the horizon. Upon some point of past shadows and demons with the blood, he paid through countless battles to be at the point where he is now, is still poignantly fresh and trickling down his eye and the front of his mane. Here he still stands victorious. A heart catharticly emoting the treasures and wars of it’s own eternalness. This is my spirit animal. This is my story. This is Kidnapped.

This album Kidnapped is both literal and personal for me from a whirlwind of emotions from when I was young and then extrapolating that metaphorically paralleling the effects of an enslaved mentality and the way the world works.

 

In case any of you may be interested in the breakdown of this universe deemed Kidnapped, this is in way a double album that works to each of it’s parts. The halves CD 1 & CD 2 are split in 18 songs a piece, symbolically representing the gift of ‘Life’ blessed to Us. (חי )

 

Each part has it’s respective bonds as well. Tied to the trauma of Kidnapped thy psyche…

The first half represents physical and emotional trauma. Each half however, is in two parts, broken between 9 songs a piece…9 numerologically is linked to the cross and finality of things. The first nine songs tied to physical and the next nine emotional.

 

The second half represents psychological and spiritual trauma. Also to note, the first 9 songs of the album and last nine allude to each other more with words while the middle flow with each other more musically, giving the universe of Kidnapped a circle, mathematically π or ‘Life’…

 

The weird and wild chaoticness of a Kidnapped psyche is balanced by breaking these two testaments of lives within themselves for a structured four parts bound by the cross, or nine. Four represents disciple and stability, thus winning back the psyche from what was Kidnapped. Furthermore, for each part of nine there is a song that acts as a bridge on the fifth song of each of the four parts. The fifth being perfectly fit to give flux within each part to give ties and leeway respectively within each.

 

Lastly, there are three bonus tracks. Of course three representing the trinity. Two books of Life with the trinity hiddenly woven beyond it. Thus, we brave the thirty-nine stripes of Jesus Christ. In essence, One may be Kidnapped, but the soul only grows beyond…Thusly, in a world of where religions are bastardized, the holy spirit within Us cannot be defeated. God was stolen from Us. Kidnapped is the stealing of God back unto His children…

 

Love has already won; so we will always overcome…
