“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.”

🚨👀BE AWARE👀🚨

(Based On Personal Experiences)

Sexual Harassment, Hints, Innuendo’s, Jokes, etc… ARE NOT OKAY & YOU KNOW IT.

I have been silent for a few days. I was thinking of recent & past situations. I have learned to calm my emotions, before responding.

“A clear & calm mind & heart produces clear actions.”

That being said…
We had this “Me Too” movement, that didn’t really help many, in everyday life. I find that sexual harassment is still running rampant. You can still find it everywhere & yes, it’s in the Poetry world as well, BIG-TIME. Things are just more subtle. Like the movements of a hungry snake. Keeping in mind, it occurs more from men towards women, but it happens across the board.

So what do we do about it? How many people really wish to address it? Not many. Because it’s EVERYWHERE and we know, it will take more than just a few old celebrities going to jail. It’s wa-a-a-ay deeper than that. This type of behavior is systematic & cultural. As women, we’re often forced to deal with it, like it or not. Men, often do not wish to discuss it, many feel uncomfortable because they’re guilty of it or just don’t know how to help. Is it fair? No.

So, one has to be aware in life. Don’t just trust people because you think you should; this can be friends, family, loved ones, co-workers, anyone, pay attention to those vibes/feelings you get that says something isn’t quite right, shut it down immediately, or as soon as you notice it – it may come at a sacrifice, but it’s worth it in the long run. Don’t feel guilty because you experienced it.

Instead?

Educate yourself and get wise, these people have perfected their game, and become masters of manipulation. Own any role you have in it, and correct yourself, be firm and clear where you stand.

See, people who sexually harass others, hope you go along or keep silent. It has much to do with power & control. They seek leverage with their authority, positions, & roles they may have in life. People who are charming & expressive by nature make great manipulators. Certain professions; law enforcement, judges, doctors, teachers, mentors, even people you know, love & care about. This also includes musicians, writers, and Poets. Be Careful! They can talk & woo you into a place, you may not want to be. It really includes anyone. Should you be paranoid & scared of everyone? No. Simply be mindful & pay attention.


Stand Up For Yourself!

It may be difficult, but only YOU can do so. Delete, block, & ignore. Let it be known that, that type of treatment, behavior,  and or innuendo is not acceptable nor will it be entertained, encouraged, or tolerated, and walk away from whatever they had on the table,

SHUT IT DOWN!

even if it means losing out on certain opportunities – it could be a few in a group or 1 person, but you cross paths due to projects/ jobs.
It’s not easy to deal with, and for some, therapy is needed and even legal assistance. We lose out often. It’s time to put an end to this.

KNOW THAT YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING

Waking up EVERY day, looking at yourself in the mirror feeling good about who YOU are, then going to bed the same way & sleeping well…That? That’s priceless.

Remember, that no one has the right to try to use you or make you feel less than who you are.

The Positivity Derived: These types of experiences can be utilized & benefited from, by talking about it, encouraging research, development, creativity, and or inventing opportunities and other methods of getting things done.

❤”The World Is A Mess, So How Do We Fix It?”❤

LOVE…Yes, it is just that simple. No one needs a special talent to do this, be this, share this. “WE ARE OUR BROTHERS & SISTERS KEEPERS, & THE GUARDIANS OF LIFE!”

Each and everyone of us, are supposed to lovingly care about ourselves & others. How can we expect, demand, and protest for a better government & ways of life, when we fail so miserably & so often, on doing the fundamentals? You do not have to be rich, and you may have little, or none, but support one another,  share, lift your fellow human beings up.

We all see people suffering, some of us grew-up in sufferation, and WE ALL ARE SUFFERING RIGHT NOW. Humanity’s morals & conscience is on deck. How are we reflecting?

How Do We Start Change? That family or person that you know is suffering, we see them all over. Give them some food, buy a meal, offer clothing. Winter is coming – why wait until the holidays? Anonymously drop off a care package, heck – get a few people in your own building, on your block or road, to each donate 1 item for a family in need and give it to them, pay for that kid or adult to take the bus/train, buy an extra item or two for the person behind you in line, hold a door, share a smile, say hello, wish someone a beautiful day, help those parents that fight all the time with screaming children – you drop things off anonymously, with a positive note for ALL. No judgment, simply say, you notice the struggle & they are not alone. If you can afford to be like a “Secret” helper? Do it! No one will turn away food, clothing, school supplies, toiletries…Just do it. No one needs to see you or know that you did it. See someone freezing? Give them a coat or a pair of gloves, no shoes – provide it. “BE”, what is needed.

Do you know how many people reading this, right now, have no food to eat or not sure what tomorrow may or may not bring? We Can & We Must change this.

The point is, the time of division, hate, and selfishness is coming to an end. If we LOVE one another, care about each other, show some compassion. The world we create, will bless our existence and all that follow.

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.”

☯️🧘🏾‍♀️Yes, I Meditate🧘🏾‍♀️☯️…

https://youtu.be/gbSeNYzYCiA

I use various types of sounds and inputs. However, it serves to relax my mind, body, & Soul. I am often able to meditate to Jazz, Opera, Dub Riddim (Reggae Music – The Version), and others.

So, meditation for me? Isn’t always about Zen music, smudging (sage burning), essential oils, incense, and teaching myself everything Buddha said. It helps, lol, but there is so much more to it.

I can meditate in a crowded area, and find inner calmness, right where I Am. It is like zoning-out, but not completely. I can do it, looking at a picture. Many know how to do that. It is also on the lines of daydreaming. You go in your Zone. You find a space to take a moment or break, to have serenity. You even regulate your breathing patterns; exhale, inhale a few times and recenter.

Does COVID-19 Have You Lonely?…

As a natural introvert, COVID-19 hasn’t affected me, like it has others. Life today, is a loner’s paradise.
However, I’ve noticed the affects it’s had on many, and it’s heartbreaking at times.

People have become fearful, doubtful, scared of everything, completely confused, and even downright manic, as well as have lost people due to the pandemic and in other ways & causes. It’s overstandable, and honestly needs to be dealt with gently and with care, as I’ve seen people I know need psychiatric help through this.

Since we can’t simply go to those that aren’t near or in the same house, we must find other ways to reach people. Video chats are now the norm. But don’t forget to call, text, email, write letters, or even shout them out on social media. Let people know that you care, even if you can’t be there to give them the hugs they need. Simply asking someone if they’re okay, means so much.🥰🥰🥰

Are We Still Sitting Here, Letting Good People Pass Us By?…

Stop the foolishness, get rid of pride, anger, resentment, jealousy, ego or whatever it is that’s got you acting stupid.

If you meet or have a good person in your life or vicinity? What are you waiting for? Stop playing foolish games. Because if you don’t? You’ll lose out on a good thing. You’ll either end up or stay with someone, who isn’t the one, be lonely & miserable, or get to have a front seat, to the life of the “one that got away.”

Why? Because you’re busy being scared, not getting your act together, not being genuine, or simply being an ass. STOP IT!

This is a major issue. If one isn’t in need of this type of assistance? Then that’s an awesome thing. You maybe able to assist someone that does.

But Mental Health & dealing with stress, play a big part in living a healthy life. I know too many, that are scared & ashamed to seek help, yet they suffer in silence. Not everyone needs medication (there are many options available today), yet some do. Sometimes, But often, people just need someone to talk to, show them different ways to view things, and or to connect with others who maybe going through the similar situations.

As Black people, we rarely trust the medical or psychiatric system (at times rightfully so), leaving us to go untreated & unhelped. It’s okay to admit that things aren’t alright, they’re not okay, and that you need help. I’ve seen many in my own family, battle with various stages of mental illness. I too battled it when I was younger, for trauma & abuse affects us all differently.

The point of my mini novel? GET HELP. Don’t just sit there ignoring it or hiding in shame. ~Maxwanette A Poetess
