Stand Up

janae

Hearing the sounds
Of crying mothers
As you smother our sons
With your hand of injustice
Its just “us”
In these streets
It then repeats
Rapid gun shots
Of glocks and automatics
Its systematic
How problematic
These times are
Raise the bar of
Education and responsibility
Have the ability to
Want better and do better
The letter of the law wasn’t addressed to us
In GOD we trust
We must no longer slain
Our fellow man
Then demand “the MAN” to respect us
And accept us
When no one kills their own
Except US
Of course that’s an exaggeration
But you get my point
This joint effort of unity
Is what we need
Plant the seed
Of acting and taking a stand
Rise out the sinking sad
Begin the resurrection of LIFE

OH SISTA!

Why is it that women can’t support one another?

Sisterhood: “A relationship between sisters”. Now in my mind whether we are blood or not, if I have respect for you and care for your well being your my sister. There is no hate or ill wishes towards you in any way. So why is it so hard for women to support and uplift each other? Either there is no support or false support. The ones that praise you in public and tear you down in private. Its enough room in this world for us all to flourish. You don’t have  to “steal off someone else’s plate” to make it. There is no need to bash one another because their level of success is greater than yours. Also why is it that when a woman is dressed nice or maybe has her hair done, she gets dirty looks? Jealousy?

How does anything she does affect your life unless u aren’t happy with yourself? Whats hers is hers and vice versa. Oh and don’t get me started on the natural girl/ relaxed girl and makeup / no make up debate. Where do u get off telling someone “natural is the way to go” or “I’m not representing my culture right” because I wear a weave or wig. Please! Just because someone decided to wear makeup for whatever reason they choose to is their business. How about we put our focus on bigger issues like battered women,homeless women,women business owners etc. We are why this world exist and we carry much power. Lets put it to good use instead of negative energy and tearing one another down.

Remember the days where a man would pull out your chair, or open a door for his lady or just a woman period?? That seems to have been lost in translation over the years. I hear, “i’m not walking around to open the car door” or my favorite is ” you have arms and hands, cant you do it”. What happen? It seems with the changing of society that respect and manners have gone with it. What do you do when your man hits you with one of the above statements? It’s not the Fairy tail you read about when the Black Knight comes and sweeps you off your feet and shows you respect and appreciation. Its not like that “OLD SCHOOL” love from back in the day that your grandparents told you about. This new age approach to relationships is not what most woman are looking for but its what they get, and are now expecting. Well, at least most woman i know.  Its seems to be all about hooking up and of course SEX.
PLEASE HELP ME OUT HERE…… WHERE HAS IT GONE?           ch
I want to hear from men and woman the reason they believe that chivalry is DEAD

GAY & LESBIAN VS. Religion, IS THERE A LINE TO BE DRAWN?

GAY & LESBIAN VS. Religion, IS THERE A LINE TO BE DRAWN?

Now I try to answer all questions that are asked by viewers. This one by far is the most interesting but also controversial. I hope everyone can join the conversation and add some insight to what is about to be asked. The question asked to Thickly Tat’d WHAT’S HOT CHRONICLES IS:
“I have another question that I think a lot of us struggle with. If you’re a Christian, how do you handle one of the biggest controversies, supporting your lesbian and/or gay friends and family members while following God’s law. Let’s be honest. It’s okay to “crucify” liars, drunkards, fornicators, adulterers, murders, and people with other “ungodly” struggles, but people who express their feelings about the LGBT as it relates to religion are verbally stoned. Any thoughts?”

My honest opinion which I provided was that I love people for who they are, I have gay friends that i adore out of this world no matter what my religion. It is not my place to judge them or crucify them. They are people too and you just let people be who they are. At the end of the day, on judgment day THEY DO NOT STAND IN FRONT OF YOU TO BE JUDGED, THEY STAND IN FRONT OF HIM..

But that is just my opinion!

Maya Angelou, RIP April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014

 Maya Angelou, RIP April 4, 1928 - May 28, 2014

Thickly Tat’d would like to take this time and say Rest in Peace to one of the greatest, Ms. Maya Angelou. She has helped many, including my self with her words of encouragement and intelligence. We love you and may your memory continue on.
Here is one of my favorites that allowed me to feel the strength within myself.

Still I Rise
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.
Maya Angelou

BULLIES & PRIORITIES

BULLIES & PRIORITIES

When I was a young girl, I say middle school years, I was picked on by other children. They talked about my looks, my hair, my personality and anything else that they could think of. The way it made me feel was crazy. It caused anxiety and a lack of self-worth for years to come. What I realized over time is that people who constantly feel the need to belittle others are only trying to make themselves feel better. A lot of folks who were considered the “COOL KIDS” grew up to have multiple children at a young age, un-educated and BROKE and usually having emotional issues of their own.
Don’t get me wrong, I never wish anything bad on anyone but I am a believer of KARMA!
Now at the age of 30,Tamika Mystique promo I learned to love myself no matter what. I am much more confident and I am extremely responsible with taking care of me and my family.
With all that being said, I am sad to say that now as a GROWN WOMAN things have not changed. You now have grown woman bullying others to get there point across or to make others do what THEY WANT YOU TO DO………………. It’s a SAD SITUATION. Being 30 and plus size, everyday it’s something. But I am here to tell you, DO NOT allow another person to make you feel that you should feel bad or apologize for having your priorities in order, or for being plus size, looking different or having a different mindset then them. BE WHO YOU ARE AND WHO YOU ARE HAPPY TO BE. LOVE YOUR SELF IN ALL ASPECT AND KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE MADE TO BE DIFFERENT AND THAT’S WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE. REMIND YOUSELF TO LOVE, EMPOWER AND TEACH OTHERS AND ALWAYS REMMBER TO HAVE YOUR OWN MIND…………
