The art of Selflessness

By, Lakira Mitchum

The non shameful duty of helping the innocent with a incomparable lust for love and the desire to satisfy  the hopeless  and to see the heavens meet the earth and when I feel as if the throne of God does not welcome me. The feeling of human Compassion compels me, melts me and my heart, it seems as though requesting love its only the edge of a sharp knife, it seems unreachable in the circumstances of life at times. Selflessness can leave us in a blaze of pain and selfishness can leave us alone. So the desire to give can sometimes creep up on us when we least desire the godly feeling of holiness, what I would really want is the constant reminder of humanities’ desire heaven just like me, empathy, I don’t believe I could ever be holy or perfect But, I do believe I’m really Gifted at being human.

Blank stare…

thoughts in a time of distress and failure

The final line, that moment you realize that moment of peace that you needed was completely worth fighting for. “fuck me, for God sake” who is God again oh, wait I forgot someone once loved me. So for the hundredth time once again I’m broken its been seven months and all the things I wrote about hope for humanity, but what about hope for me. Things get funny, when we depend on society to take of us, when we expect the prayers of strangers  to help us be a little more lucky. Can you feel the lack of  ubiety lack of sincerity in the Bible pages….Words in Red.. words in black I stare blankly at the words of the one that created me. Makes me question what does it means to be human in the eyes of God I was born into sin it almost makes me feel like a mistake. I’m no longer on a spiritual roller coaster I seem to be  fighting without the Angel’s wings behind me. So what do you do when religion seems to just confuse you. “Patience” and unimaginable self love to this world yet  confidence in yourself can seem almost poison, sick and deadly. The cadaverous nightmares of going to hell  twisting in my mind like a coiling snake,” oh ,my God not again” its been hard for me thinking I was saved by God, its all haunts me , and that’s my fear, my truest fear is failure and fear itself.

The wonderful world of Disney part 2

The wonderful world of Disney part 2

The art of being a misfit

Disney became a king  not seeing  he was becoming the king of misfits, isn’t it funny how we tend to forget we are human and in the eyes of God we are just babes wanting their mother’s milk again. We seem to  lack understanding what he has been trying to teach us all this time ,I have not once let the humility of Disney dawn upon me  as child, I only saw fantasy and fun but,I do now see that mickey is a mouse because he’s a the Jewish king of the happiest kingdom in the world. Sadly, the world still finds a reason to hate Jews while supporting a symbol like mickey the mouse. We don’t see that the borderlines don’t make sense, the racism for blacks  still exist, but they still hip hop listen at white clubs and parties. maus

So I’m trying to understand what racism is still, in this generation Why is it so hard to see, this tiny glimpse of negativity that still itches my ass in the middle of the night. Why don’t we see the dismembered misunderstanding the things society is still ignoring, you still admit you don’t care about other humans but yourself. “you’re black get over it!” what the hell does that mean? how are we still friends? words echo through my mind that I can’t comprehend what is wrong with me, little brown eyes nappy haired me? So I look at big titles like Disney, they accept him, I look at other races that try to build a self esteem in the community. So here I am becoming the queen of Misfits, the lover of losers the singer of doubtful dreams and idolized Gods. Who am I to admire Disney? a white man’s idol, a little white girls prince charming? I did question why all the princesses were white, and I did prefer the black Barbie more than the white one. I didn’t always think about how my name “Lakira” leaves a sour taste in the employers mouths, or teachers mouths, or anyone’s mouths I just saw myself as a human. I noticed the Supremes, the precious white judges, the pretty white girl that tells me to get over racism because its not really there but, it is. I left my white friends not because I hate them but because in their eyes in, they avoid the confrontation and decide to be the condescending fake, friends that they are not all white people are like this but, I realized the truth is, I accidently made some people realize they hate niggers no exceptions. maus 3.jpg

So what am I supposed to do about this? How am I suppose to feel? I should just know discrimination is implied so much in this country that it seems almost unconventional to even exist knowing no wants to hire my ghetto looking ass . I can’t control others thoughts about my race , my name , or racism against Asians, Indians, Jewish people, native Americans, etc. to be honest manifest destiny still goes on to this day but, they call them missionaries. But, other than that, let’s go  about my explanation  with my why and how I became A fan of Disney, when I found about the book Maus  and what the mouse symbolizes, that’s what made me tick. Mickey mouse actually represents what the Egyptians illustrated as the image of the God of the Hebrews in ancient times. The meek and humble squeaky creature represents the normal working Jewish man, Walt Disney is  and was that symbol the symbol that made the world ignore Jewish pride, the totally disregard how powerful a misfit like Mickey can become, Disney is hope. We see now he is excepted, but their was a time during ww2 Walter was patronized and I do remember this, and I wonder sometimes if he died happy. He was an humanitarian that occasionally guilty of discrimination I admit but, let’s look at it’s a small world.

“A girl got kicked out of the swimming hole today. Inge Hachmann. They said they wouldn’t let us swim with a half-breed. Unsanitary. A half-breed, Werner. Aren’t we half-breeds too? Aren’t we half our mother, half our father?”

Heinrich Heine

 

“Then I looked out onto the horizon myself and realized that loss is the same wherever you go: overwhelming, inexorable, deafening. How resilient human beings are that we can learn slowly to carry on when we are left all alone, left to fill the void as best we can. Or disappear into it.”
Jennifer Ryan, The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir   

“‎I was cursed with the pessimism of both the Russians and the Jews two of the gloomiest tribes in the world. Still if there wasn’t greatness in me maybe I had the talent to recognize it in others even in the most irritating others.”

Oh, the wonderful world of Disney part 1

 

By, Lakira Mitchum

So in my wondrous attempt to find an itching moment of nostalgia I stumbled, upon the beautiful thought of Disney and all of his modesty as an artist. The sensitive and less savvy work that brings tears to my little face even now to this day he captivates me. With the short moment of  musical climaxes rising and falling of each character’s movements as he or, she reacts to their surroundings: that is the moment; that reaches the deepest desire of inspiration to my very being it captured my tiny lust for the fictional journey he sent me onto to see. Silent story telling, without words only an image and music, a  satisfying taste of love and despair ,it offers sort of an meek feeling a soft, heaping serving of the nicest dish he could mix up, that is the often misunderstood motherless tale of (Bambi). Disney wasn’t just an average cartoonist he was a classy story teller, an adult man that just swept us away in his innocence that he was attempting to wrestle with.  Bambi as a mute baby dear’s story is told in mere traumatic failures and triumphs I watched, it

felt more like a cinematic lullaby.I have to say hands down compared to his competitor “Chuck Jones’s” (the creator of Looney tunes) Disney a more genuine approach f story telling that seems more challenging and compelling than others. To him its more than making a cartoon, or a political cartoon, its a him aiming for pure expression more, like putting his own DNA into his work, his personal flaws his, feelings his weaknesses, he made himself vulnerable to the public, which to this day, people judge him negatively for his work, which I accept is understandable he is mysterious yet matchless.

Tick Tock goes the Croc

A poem inspired by Peter Pan

By,Lakira Mitchum

Tick tock, he said, and my heart raced to know his name again.

The seven seas could not compare to how big my love was for him.

And what if that croc, the one that bleeds really ate the man I loved.

He went to sea with Mr.Snead to find ,my child, my son,

The maiden heart it beats with loud a thud, tick tock like the killer croc.

My beloved child died in his sleep, and latter arrived letter from a boy  

That looked sweet, it said my lover was dead, he died at sea,

And his ghost With Mr.Snead were forever looking for him.

His name was peter, They often played

Pirates and pretended to be at sea.

And tick tock went the clock that broke my heart that

Sunday morning.

Home of immigrants “hello America “

By, Lakira Mitchum

Welcome to the humble home of immigrants where lady liberty says “we all belong here” Let’s talk about  illegal Immigration, and just immigrants period.

Here are my thoughts I believe every immigrant deserves one opportunity to have papers unless, they are a serious threat to our country they should be denied access at all. I believe we are a country of immigrants and minorities, misfits and intolerant able fools fighting over racism like Africans and Mexicans , Asians and Jews are going to disappear. Racism is what is keeping our country from prospering we have more to deal with the envoirment , pollution, identity theft, education , pandemics. I believe all immigrants should have a “review background check” and a sign in, including a search for drugs and a medical exam. and a list job of opportunities and as well as introduction to studies, a way for drug dealers to actually possibly sell drugs to our country through the white market. I also believe immigrants should pay a fee and  if they committed a crime they should do community service.

If their is person of an illegal immigrated family  or group they should have the chance to be united with them but, legally required to provide information about themselves a proper fee as well a establishment. I  have to say this country was founded in disaster a constant rotation of immigrant conflict  and really , the debate about immigration is really about “white power” or maybe paranoia. So with this my conclusion America is it’s own problems, too much control leads to war every time, violence , human trafficking, rioting “control is good, protection is good but, is the debate worth carrying on too long.

An example Native Americans: okay so, why was it so hard for the Europeans to form a economy with the native Americans with absolutely no murder or theft.

I wonder what kind of country we would be in? I think trade and ONLY  TRADE should have been an integrated activity between both persons without violence, I can’ t imagine how much more productive our country would have been. Agriculture and technology I believe would have been better our, culture would have been rich with a mixture of both brown and white values more than it is now. I am proud to say my country is diverse, that I have mixed blood in my veins, so I will be honest I love immigrants and immigration, sense the 90’s I remember as a child watching cartoons that had characters of all races and how people bragged about the equal opportunities we have as  a country. I went to a high school with teen agers of all kinds, and if any racist conflict came along we as a school would actually were afraid of losing peace, friends and trust from our peers we often talked about it in hopes we could all get along.  So where does it end?

When we realize the more we contemplate hate the more other countries may not respect us,  we seem to lack control and we seem to lack wisdom. I realize we lack focused on the world around us, which is more important my race, and really all form of immigrants have something to offer anyway. Well in conclusion, I have more to learn about life, I just hope , I really hope immigration becomes less of an issue in our country.

What is nationalism?

na·tion·al·ism
[ˈnaSH(ə)nəˌlizəm]

    [more]
    • an extreme form of this, especially marked by a feeling of superiority over other countries.

    My own definition:

    By  ,Lakira Mitchum

    “when we reject the idea of rebellion and accept the patriotic symbolism of our national cultural and political background as our own view and opinion. A nationalist typically comes with one idea in mind, to embrace their own culture to reject another, or push certain boundaries out of respect to their native region.”

    Wikipedia  explanation

     

Nationalism is a complex, multidimensional concept involving a shared communal identification with one’s nation. It is contrasted by Anti-nationalism as a political ideology oriented towards gaining and maintaining self-governance, or full sovereignty, over a territory of historical significance to the group (such as its homeland). Nationalism therefore holds that a nation should govern itself, free from unwanted outside interference, and is linked to the concept of self-determination. Nationalism is further oriented towards developing and maintaining a national identity based on shared characteristics such as culture, language, race, religion, political goals or a belief in a common ancestry.[1][2] Nationalism therefore seeks to preserve the nation’s culture. It often also involves a sense of pride in the nation’s achievements, and is closely linked to the concept of patriotism. In these terms, nationalism can be considered positive or negative.[3]Nationalism is a complex, multidimensional concept involving a shared communal identification with one’s nation.

“Quote of the day”

“As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
