Jasmine Thompson- Old Friends

 

Verse 1]
People who matter don’t mind
They don’t need all of my time
Somebody told me to light up every room
Make them remember you
But nobody here knows what I’m going through
No they never do

[Chorus]
I miss my old friends
‘Cause they know when I need them the most
I made some new friends and they cool friends
But they don’t know
What I do, what I got, who I am and who I’m not
I miss my old friends
I miss my old friends

[Verse 2]
I miss the good times we had
Now I don’t know who’s got my back
And somebody told me to light up every room
Make them remember you
But nobody here knows what I’m going through
No they never do

[Chorus]
I miss my old friends
‘Cause they know when I need them the most
I made some new friends and they cool friends
But they don’t know
What I do, what I got, who I am and who I’m not
I miss my old friends
I miss my old friends
I miss my old friends

[Bridge]
Hey now, hey now
I know everybody changes
Hey now, hey now
I just want familiar faces
Oh hey now, hey now
Growing up can be amazing
But it can even break your heart

[Chorus]
I miss my old friends
When I need them the most
I miss my old friends
I miss my old friends
‘Cause they know when I need them the most
I made some new friends and they cool friends
But they don’t know
What I do, what I got, who I am and who I’m not
I miss my old friends
I miss my…

[Outro]
(I miss my old friends, my old friends I miss)
I miss my old friends
(I miss my old friends, my old friends I miss)
What I do, what I got, who I am and who I’m not
I miss my old friends
I miss my old friends

Breath In

As the world keeps turning

My life keeps spinning

Beautiful black girl

She never stops dreaming

Dreaming of you and dreaming of them

She wraps herself in the distant future

Not afraid of the past

But ready for the oncoming future

She baths in beauty

But all she sees is hate

The light is dimming

So, she leans on faith

The ambiance of treasures

Fill her brain

She walks with doubt

And with so much pain

As the world turns

My life keeps spinning

But I keep livin’ I keep movin’

One eye in the mirror and the other at life

The future is waiting

And I’m deaths bride

He loves where I’ve been

Because I stay to long

Faith in an omniscient being

Has me seeing

Seeing double the time and double the work

I ask for it all, but I breath in the dark

I walk with light as you look at me

My mind races to places that you just don’t see

So, as the world keeps turning

And my life keeps spinning

I inhale the future

And let out the past

I walk statuesque

With a brain full of life

Breathing til’ the end of time

Breathing until I see you

It keeps turning

And I keep spinning

I dream all my dreams

And I end up winning

Faith is hard with something

But I know my future is bright

And I’ll breath it in and wait to see

A Faith Restored

As I lay in my bed and watch Grey’s Anatomy, I’m contemplating my life. I’m watching people on the show with this mount of love overflowing. I mean, I know it is just tv and the characters are fictional, but I could feel the passion these people felt. Shonda Rimes is an amazing writer. Thinking about my life and the people who I let in, has proven to be the x-factor. I allow people to treat me this was, like a tool and I started to feel sorry for myself. I mean am I really that pathetic? Am I really just a love lost puppy looking for a new home. I mean I’m pining over a love that isn’t even real. someone had to write it and create it. they had to show the world what a real love looks like.

As I contemplated my life watching Grey’s Anatomy I realized that it was getting later in the day and I had to take my pills. I remember that I left them in my car, so I get up put my shoes on and open my front door and to my surprise I find a little note clipped to my door as I walk out. I feel it for 2 seconds and realized there is something in there and not just some random note my apartment people delivered to me.

I open the envelope and the card inside is gold. You know the kind you cherish and the world holds precious?! On the front of the card it says “thank you”. I open and see the same color on the Starbucks gift card. I move the card over and read the words “Kai Thanks for being a great neighbor. Adrian #195. I’m in shock first of all and the a big smile comes across my face.

I start to feel good inside. I mean someone finally thought about. Someone actually took the time to communicate to me. I felt important, wanted, and maybe even loved. I know loved is a stretch, being that I do not know my neighbor from Adam, but that’s how he made me feel. He made me believe in hope again. He restored my faith in people again. God has a funny way of showing you things. I mean look at me. I was watching Grey’s Anatomy and feeling sorry for my train wreck of love life and here comes this person, this man and he thought about me. I mean this is what people want. They want to be thought about.

I’m tired of not being thought about. Not being a factor. I want to be a factor in someone’s life. I think God was showing me that there are fundamentally decent people out there and all I have to do is wait for it. It’s just so hard to wait. I mean I spend all day everyday in my house with no-one, but me and my daughter. This gift from my neighbor Adrian made me believe in love again. It has given me faith in people again. Restored my belief that people are just plain ol’ good and I thank him for that. Thank you Adrian you have truly helped me.

The Shiggy Craze

I have been so obsessed with this challenge and wondered where the original was at. I mean I have seen celebrities do the challenge, as well as us regular folk lol. It’s called the In My Feelings Challenge. You might see it on IG or Youtube as #dotheshiggy #shiggychallenge #inmyfeelingschallenge #kekechallenge. This Shiggy guy just did a dance and people followed him, but why?

He’s funny of course!! He did the dance with ease and grace and in his own way. He had fun with it. This dude was really gigging. He so daymn stupid. He is an entertainer. What some people out here are striving to be like.

I see so many people with memes or crazy stupid videos trying to get popular, but you have to appeal to your audience. Keep them involved and motivated and what a way for him to keep them involved and motivated by having them dance!! I mean I’ve seen people who are on point like a graceful swan and people who have the grace of a baby bird and they are killing it either way. This guy has started a craze and people are going krazy. Hey and it doesn’t help that he started it in the mist of the foolish and simple-minded controversy about Drake and we see Drake proved his haters wrong. This song has been a hit and Shiggy has made people love the dance to it, but have annoyed those who are hating on the dance and the song!!! Oh well who gives a shyt!! This guy just received his blue check so he must be doing something extremely right!! Check out a few videos below…

Will Smith Killin’ it

Keke Palmer killin’ it wit her boo.

Musical Talent

Lala Anthony killing it!!

Watch this gyrls legs, they never move!!


Drake himself joining in on the craze!!

I’m back again :-)

Well here we are. I’m back. It took me a long time to get back to here.

Well let’s see, my life is good, my job is good, my personal life well not so good. I need to find the strength to write again. I need to find my purpose again. I wish I were not full of all these daymn emotions. My life is great and I feel so alone.

I have a beautiful daughter and she loves me. I want her to see a happy mm and I think I’m good at faking it. I think I’m so good at faking being happy that I fool myself, until I turn on the tv and see a happy couple or a couple going through things. Sometimes I wish I had there lives. Had their strength. I wish at some point people rather men will see the good in me and the love in me and run or realize that I am the one for them. I know it sounds like a dream and things like this don’t happen or rather people believe it does not happen.

Here is what I believe. I believe everything happens for a reason. God gave me this life for a reason. I don’t want to waste it. I want to be happy. I want to be loved. I believe there is someone out there for me. Someone that will fight for me and love me the way I need to be loved. I know I might scare people with how amazing I am and how perfect I seem to be but, it’s scary. Putting your heart in someone else’s hand and then them slapping it out of your hand like it’s nothing.

” Trust in the loved with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5

Ella Mai “Naked”

 

Take away the big shirts, the tattoos, the sweatpants and Vans
Okay, I don’t wear no makeup, no purse in my hands
My resting bitch face is mistaking for the mean girl
But what if I told you
There’s nothing I want more in this world

Than somebody who loves me naked
Someone who never asks for love
But knows how to take it
Are you that somebody
Who sees a wall and breaks it
Are you ready to fight just to see what’s lost behind my flaws
Can you love me naked
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Naked
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Naked
Ooooooh yeah yeah

Might be a bitch in the morning so catch me at night time
Some of my friends think I’m moody but I think I’m just fine
I could be pissed but I act like I’m not
I really remember when I say I forgot
No matter how hard I try
To run away from love at the end of the night

I need somebody who loves me naked
Someone who never asks for love
But knows how to take it
Are you that somebody
Who sees a wall and breaks it
Are you ready to fight just to see what’s lost behind my flaws
Can you love me naked
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Naked
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Naked

I need someone who loves me when I wake up
Who thinks I’m beautiful when I’m looking fucked up
I want the perfect love, am I asking too much
Someone who shoots for the stars
No one that thinks I’m never good enough

I need somebody who loves me naked
(Who loves me naked)
Someone who never asks for love
But knows how to take it
(Knows how to take it)
Are you that somebody
Who sees a wall and breaks it
Are you ready to fight just to see what’s lost behind my flaws
Can you love me naked
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Naked
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Naked

Hear my heart go ba-dum, boo’d up
Biddy-da-dum, it just won’t stop, it go
How many ways can I say that I need you baby, it’s true
I think I might die without you
Feeling all over my body

Ain’t gotta tell you what to do, yeah yeah

Biddy-da-dum, it just won’t stop, it go
Head over heels in love
Right in front of you, ain’t gotta look no more baby (hah)
I wanna build this love
And everything you want, you ain’t gotta ask for
You got me boo’d up, boo’d up
Told you from the jump I’m the one to choose
Got me boo’d up, boo’d up
Grab me by the waist baby, pull me closer
Ooh, now I’ll never get over you until I find something new
That get me high like you do, yeah yeah

Hear my heart go ba-dum, boo’d up
Biddy-da-dum, it just won’t stop, it go
This is such a crazy feeling, like
I don’t want to get too attached, but
I feel like I already am
My mind’s telling me one thing, but
I guess I should listen to my heart
Right?
