Ghetto Speech for the SOUL 0.1

Does anyone ever walk into your DM’s offering to help you discover the path of your soul? 

Recently, I’ve been getting more of these (always around the holidays) and it’s been itching at me to create a post about it. I tend to weave this soul topic into the W.I.Ps I’m writing. This topic of the soul has been talked about more as years go by becoming a more open, yet controversial conversation, it has become the centerpiece for the next generation to come.

It’s quite clear that religion, whichever one you may be thinking of, is slowly losing followers and people are becoming more spiritual, atheist or agnostic all together. Either way we are being divided in more ways than one. Between believers and non-believers, there is a gray area bigger than ever before, where we don’t know what to believe anymore, and those who can accept that will transcend themselves in a way. Then again, those who cannot accept they don’t know what I call the ‘complete story’ the truth of it all, not just the beginning and the end, what about the juicy middle details? We don’t know everything. And that is more than okay with me.

Go back to the DM I got above and take a minute to think how you’d respond to that… and why? 

Now I’m going to make you read my response again, as a quote/spoken word/poem this time… maybe it will hit different.

“The truth is friend, we will never know our path in life, we are constantly changing and so is our soul.

If you think you’re on the right path, think again. Change is coming, like it or not. I can feel this, my 2022 energy comin thru early.

There ain’t nobody who gunna fool me. I hear them yell at me from across the street 222WAGUANIN?!!?! 

I’ve been fallin in love with myself. I see y’all on those drugs they got you snorin’ on yourselves.

Rocks, powder and pills is what they want for us. You see, they really just stoppin to stop us.

Understand some drugs are underrated, like psychedelics y’know, but the governement like our parents, always tryna be in control.

Then what happens when THEY’RE told “GO TO YOUR ROOM!”

Haha, now y’know why they ain’t ever listen to you.”

I am human, just like you. I have been around for 20 years and although it may not be a lot of time to some, it feels like I've been alive forever. To cope with all the things my life has given me; good and bad, I've always been a writer. Maybe I didn't know or necessarily want to be a writer, but I was always on the creative side, not really understanding how different I was from others; I'm really not that different from you. To this day I'm still eager to learn more about myself, to improve and grow amorphously. I want to use this fuel of constant self-discovery as the direct source of 'energy' that can create whatever I want it to, making writing for me a healthier coping mechanism than most I've tried in my lifetime. That being said, I believe that starting my blog, The Existentialist, (all thanks to Wordpress and Bluehost teams) I finally have the opportunity and creative outlet to unleash my passion for art; writing. The beginning is never easy, and it won't get much easier I am aware. I can only believe in myself and keep my expectations to a minimum; I like to believe I hold no expectations, but they seem unavoidable. To whoever reads this, I'm not one to care about views or reads, I won't encourage/pressure you to read my work because for me, the thrill really comes from just making a finished piece of work I'm happy with, regardless if it is read by others or not; judgement from others is what I've feared all my life. I can only encourage you to have an open mind as a reader and believe in me as much as I believe in myself to accumulate the courage to start showing my creative writing(art) to the world. Everybody creates things in their lifetime, I am just another one of those beings; whether you like it or not, nouns (persons, places and 'things') exist to teach us something about ourselves. There is always more to learn...
