Inspired by the #MakeItStop campaign

Truth be told, in my opinion, campaigns to stop women abuse should not exist… AT ALL. There should have never been a reason for them to exist. Unfortunately we (men) have let our women down.

How, as human beings, have we gotten to the point where we have to start mass movements, campaigns and protests to stop what should have never started in the first place? The continued verbal, emotional and physical abuse of women is something that should have never taken place.

As a man, it is in your nature to conquer and destroy, attack the competition and always be the best! But to conquer is not to conquer her mind, but her obstacles. To destroy, is not to destroy her body but destroy her fears. To attack is not to attack her, but to attack all those things that would put her safety in danger. To be the best, is not to be better than her, but be her equal and create an environment where YOU are the best partner for her.

Before you strike her, think about the fact that she is someone’s daughter, she is someone’s mother, and she is someone’s role model. How would you, as a man, feel if someone put hands on your daughter, mother, sister, significant other?

Cherish one of the most precious gifts that men have been given and protect her to the ends of the earth.

These are just MY opinions.

Show Them You’re a Different Kind Of Animal

Whilst walking the road of life we will often find ourselves facing MANY different challenges ranging from family issues to personal inner conflicts, but perhaps the most frustrating of them all is conflict within us that is inflicted by society and external pressures… From trying to outdo the top achiever at work to trying to prove that you’re deserving of your position in life generally. Out of all of this one thing will always stay relevant and true and that’s the fact that you must always stand… This can be achieved simply by being yourself because no one does you better than YOU!!!  So when they try to frustrate you and keep you down, rise up all the time and SHOW THEM YOU’RE A DIFFERENT KIND OF ANIMAL!!!!!

To the president

Am I the only one who sees it?
Like having visions in my head while dreaming
More like nightmares that have come to bare
The voice of the people soon we will not hear

Am I the only one who feels this?
Like venom running through Africa’s veins
Taking notes from neighbours on how to remain
Plotting and scheming evading negative publicity
Plans made in the shadows like secret societies
Looking for your next free full meal, yeah
When times got real the scorpion was killed

Tarnishing that which Robert Sobukwe stood for
Rubbishing ideals Steve Biko was slain for
Erasing values that Oliver Tambo sacrificed for
No respect for time Nelson Mandela served
Belittling the struggle of Walter Sisulu

Those letters(ANC) Another National Conspiracy
Changing constitution, what gives you the right?
What would mama Adelaide think & say?
What would mama Albertina react to this?

I refuse to dance to your tune, move to your beat
For my President said “I am an African”
My freedom was fought for and I will enjoy it
So try as you will but Mzansi WILL resist!!

A Ramble

Sometimes I wish I was born to a world of brothers and sisters instead I was born into a world of coons and kaffirs, niggers and niglets. I was born into a world of “pimps” and “ho’s”, a world of separation and division, a world of arrogance and short tempers and no vision.

Sometimes I wish we hugged and kissed, said “I love you” and meant it, and lived in a world of total bliss. Heck, a world where what is mine is yours and what is yours is mine, but all we do is push and shove, cut and stab, shoot to kill, injure and maim, build high walls so it becomes safe to play,society corrupting you with moral decay, “FUCK You move out the way!” Is that anyway to speak to your brothers and sisters? The definition of “elders” now means “victim”, “easy target”, gotta be honest I despise S.O.C.I.E.T.Y.

Sometimes I wish, Yeah that’s all it is nothing but hopes and dreams and we all know how fickle and fragile those can be.
So everyday I wake up and I make a wish, maybe one day that wish will come true but until then I’ll live in a world of H.A.T.E.
