And so here I am, 31 years in the making,
What appears to be a life for the taking.
So well do I hide my soul that is aching,
These invisible scars, I wear them with pride,
Gather them along for the ride for this life,
It’s just a never-ending training session,
Crashing with others for some type of connection.

Yet everywhere I turn I see nothing but fake smiles.
Although it’s been a while I’ve witness something worthwhile.
Instead we’ve got fellow brothers and sisters, mothers and misters trying to Trump one another.
We educate, trying to get stronger,
While that human cancer simply gets stronger with that hateful armor.

Bring down a brother or sister of color, hail the shooter, bravo!
Yet, who remembers unsung heroes like Tale-Yax?
Shout out to you, Hugo Alfredo, no tengas miedo. I’ve got your back.

31 years of stare downs, simply because I’m brown.
Don’t you people see we’ve got the same blood running through our veins?
So why do you speak about us with disgust as if we’re some vicious stain?

How can we let the Bannons, Trumps, Pence and McConnells use the power of the pen
To silence us with violence, dump and throw our dignity right over the fence?

These chains echoing our pains, resonating through our bloody veins.
Like a titanic train, ready to reign over our names.

So to answer your question my dear mother,
I’ll tell you to forget it and not bother.
To be a father, I simply don’t want that honor.
Because the world we stand on, it’s filled with too much dishonor.

Read the sorrow-filled lines between my brown colored eyes.
I’ve witness too much to want to desire my very own baby cries.

Instead I’ll ride all through the night, like a knight, with my pen as my knife.

Maybe someday, somewhere, we’ll no longer have to fight.

Almost every single pre-teen synced with Nickelodeon was shocked, not to mention the adults, when they read and heard the news: JAMIE LYNN SPEARS. 16, ACTRESS & AND SOON-TO-BE MOM.

Seeing her older, and much more publicized sister being scrutinized by the media, one would have safely assumed Jamie would have done things a bit smarter, maybe rise above the expectations. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

Nine months later, OK! Magazine ran their best selling issue since 2005, with Jamie Spears right on the cover along with her new born. What does that image really mean, though? In my perspective, the media is simply glorifying teen pregnancy. Granted, it’s not entirely Spears’ fault, but the truth of the matter is she did in fact received a hefty amount for the rights of those pictures. The end result? Teens all over the country, and across the world even, will rush towards that pedestal in which kids (that’s what pre-teens are), have kids. Babies having babies.

Not only are these teenagers cutting short their chances of succeeding, of becoming someone in this life and accomplishing beyond what individuals of past generation could ever hope for, but they are also contributing to a growing problem that affects the whole world.

Mass Population.

We’re already seeing the effects in countries such as China. The issue of forced abortion is a hot potato that nobody wants to hold. Africa is slowly rising to the same dilemma. Mass population is one of the reasons they can’t control malaria. Although, Bill Gates is working on it.

Central American countries such as El Salvador can’t seem to house all of their people, so they let them venture out to other countries. The U.S. too, seems to be slowly showing the symptoms of mass population. Henry Kissinger and other individuals had different ideas to solve the population crisis. Forced abortion. Genocides. Depopulation through food. These are all crimes against humanity. I’m against it. But there is another solution. A smarter solution.

Protection. And if you really want to have a child and help the population crisis? Adoption. Think about it. Adoption.
