Jun ’11: Before You Judge Me, Try Hard To Love Me

Different

 

“Before you Judge Me, Try hard to Love Me”

 

Since 1987 I have been designing and implementing arts based Life, Love & Leadership Programs for NYC schools. In 2009, I embarked on a 2 year hiatus, to begin writing a series of Best Sellers. In April 2011, I was contacted by a forward thinking school administrator to serve as workshop facilitator for students at a specialized school. Although my creative genius has been thought & knee deep in typing manuscripts, Spirit guided me to acceptance of the 7 week journey, knowing that another beautiful blessing was on the horizon.

Different?  That’s the one word question I walk away with this last day of school. What does that word really mean? For the students who could not speak audibly, for those who could not move anything but the eyes and mouths on their faces, for those who could not go to the bathroom on their own or feed themselves or even chew their food, for those who got frustrated at their stuttering, for those who whispered in my ear “I am not really a retard”, for those who painted some of the most beautiful prom decorations I have ever seen, for those who knew what they wanted to be when they grew up and stated it with confidence and pride, for those who just wished to be stress free, for those who knew automatically that Aromatherapy can heal your life, for those who who, who, who, who who only look like they are “Different” than you and me, for the day that instead of calling me Aunty Salaam, my fun loving, free spirited students renamed me TiTi Magic and I was honored by their appreciation and trust, I discovered that our Universal yet secret desire for Love & Acceptance, makes us all just exactly the Same*

I smiled into their eyes, for my 3rd Eye to see what their lips could not say. I opened up my heart to feel beats that in their dreams they’d tap with moveable toes. I listened to the sounds that emerged from their raised throats and acknowledged ‘YES” I hear your call. For those who wanted to get up and dance and could not, I CHEERED at the singing and dancing of the “abled” SUPERSTARS that represented for the Whole Team! Most of all, I was “bow down” grateful inspired that every word they could utter, was of sheer truth… more than I can say about many “not different” people I know, about the way they really and truly do feel.

Different may quite actually be the determination of true love. Because… because Different comes with strings attached that we can all see from the start. No time to puppeteer into false expressions… no time to fix your face into fake smiles… Just moments of truth… of “Human’s Being”.

Einstein inspires us to “Think Different”.

Beethoven inspires us to “Play Different”.

And the most influential artist in the world, the whole wide world, was a young Black Man who, “Thank You Dear God Almighty”, shared a talent that moved all the worlds nations to feel, collectively, simultaneously, at the depths of their hearts and souls…. Spreading a JOY, Sharing A Wealth, Living a Life that was “Authentically Magically Different”.

“I did not know that the world thought I was so weird. I just thought that I was Different. I was born with a gift… Still I never celebrated Christmas or had time to play.  That’s one reason why I love children. My young life was exchanged for hard work and success. Still, I would not change my life for anything in this world. I want to thank all those who have helped me to channel my talents on this planet.” Michael Jackson*

 

Ever wonder why the so called aliens and UFO’s we see in movies strikingly resemble tall sculptures, statues of African origin?

Have You Seen My Childhood?

 

I’m searching for the world that I come from
‘Cause I’ve been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart…
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities…
‘Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me…

People say I’m not okay
‘Cause I love such elementary things…
It’s been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I’ve never known…

Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne…

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?”

 

I See You Michael.

P.S. I Love U … Always Have… Always Will*
