Heat of the Moment II


Choose your leader carefully she said
as I flip through the glossy pages of Essence Magazine
Shaking my head at our obsession with celebrity
from the movie screen to the Twitter page
keeping with trends and gossip is how we spend our days
But do you take two seconds to think about what it means to be human
striving to be a better man or woman
Brother Cornel West talks about paidea
that deep knowledge that comes from getting your hands dirty with the truth
What does it really mean to live and not just be alive
To strive towards a better tomorrow and  not to be on the Kardashians' guest list
What do you hear when your heart beats...

Obviously that piece is unfinished and could use work. You can call it a crime of passionate poetry. Ok. Goodnight.
