Are You Cool Being You?

Can you look in the mirror and be happy with the reflection?
When was the last time you offered another, unconditional love and affection?
Have you ever risked your life for another’s protection?
When was the last time you pointed a misguided youth toward positive direction?

Did you take time this week to call your momma, or the mommy figure in your life?
Before you left home today, did you kiss your girlfriend, boyfriend, partner, husband, or wife?
When and where was your last random act of kindness displayed?
When was the last time you got down on your knees and prayed?
When you rose this morning, did you thank The ALMIGHTY for another day?

The millionaire and the beggar
The wine taster and the kegger
The original and the bootlegger
Love iz… the universal language, understood by everyone
Let it flow and watch it grow

The act of isolation will only, sow the seed of confrontation
The penetration of hatred and mass frustration
Causing the despoliation of our population
We must change this situation
We all reside under the same sun
Keep watching the mirror…
your reflection will always show true
Ask yourself if you dislike your skin tone… your hue
Then ask yourself, if you’re cool with being you
