A Man of Variety by Shana Jay

His words are a like a fine wine a delicacy that accelerates my heart jump starts my mental capacity I love his inner trilogy
His smile is captivating I find myself navigating towards the thing I crave for most his presence stirs my inner child
His poetic rhythm appeases me as I watch him make love to the mic
Like Vivaldi, Mozart and Beethoven his spirit is classical so eloquent as if he were the inspiration to B minor mass 22 Benedictus
When he speaks his tone is as gentle as a lamb never persuasive I just surrender to it
His lips are soft like the clouds his arms are as strong as steel
I’m honored to be apart of his life his thoughts are limitless no fabrication he just keeps it real
His ideas are remarkable he is the epitome of brilliance he paints the picture to help me see clearer into the inner depth perception of his mind
He is my muse the free spirit that infuses all of the creative aspects of me
He’s not perfect nor does he proclaim to be but he is the one who holds me up and this is my version of a man destined for excellence a man of variety

Twitter and Facebook Abuse by Shana Jay

What is social the social networking service?
A social networking service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on building and reflecting of social networks or social relations among people, who, for example, share interests and/or activities.
What is Trolling?
A common misuse of social networking sites such as Facebook is that it is occasionally used to emotionally abuse individuals. Such actions are often referred to as trolling. It is not rare for confrontations in the real world to be translated online.[citation needed] Trolling can occur in many different forms, such as (but not limited to) defacement of deceased person(s) tribute pages, name calling, playing online pranks on volatile individuals and controversial comments with the intention to cause anger and cause arguments. Trolling is not to be confused with cyber-bullying.

Now let’s talk about how I feel about this new found social networking abuse. Facebook and Twitter are sites to encourage promotion of entrepreneurship etc. If your business is prostitution this site is not for you. I am so sick of hearing about how wet you are, how fat it is and how someone “can get it.” I don’t want to read about your vagina monologues nor hear any of your “dick”tations about how deep you can stroke it. This is totally inappropriate and utterly disgusting. If you want to date there are social networking sites out here just for you please google black For Facebook users and your profile pictures I want to see your face and not your ass ok…This is “FACEBOOK” not “ASSBOOK.”

Anytime type of leadership positions such as politicians, pastors, teachers, business owners, health care professionals etc. should be very careful on how they depict themselves on social networking sites. There should be a level of limitations on what you post because things can be misconstrued and taken very seriously even if you meant no harm.  I would love to share some examples with you but I may offend those who are unaware of what they doing.

Let’s talk about your representation on Facebook and Twitter and your real life once you log off. I am so sick of these add water, instant made, so deeply religious sanctified holy rollers who was there when they crucified my Lord Saints of Facebook and Twitter. Oh but I just saw you at the sports bar and grill the other day and you bought the bar out talking bout I’m in love with my bartender. See don’t be quoting all these scriptures on Facebook and Twitter and trying to give counsel about something and you are clearly not living, okay. You’re the first one in church on Sunday and the first one to make it rain at the strip club Monday night I’m just saying. Here is a better example quoting scriptures in one post and cussing someone out in the next …that’s just not right.

Lastly and I’m done ….Twitter and Facebook are neither your therapist nor your journal some things should just be kept to yourself. I read my time line and news feed and think that some of your are slightly bi-polar ….for those who have seen the Kevin Hart’s stand up his safety word is “Pineapples” and I’m adopting this term too. I’m screaming pineapples because you’re doing too much. Let’s use Twitter and Facebook for what it’s meant to be thanks here. My name is Shana Jay and I approve this message.

The Season for Creative People by Shana Jay

Could you imagine a world without music, poetry, art, photography & choreography (dance)? It would be a sad, dismal, mediocre place viewed in black & white instead of multifaceted color.  Music is like a smooth glass of wine it mellows me out and helps me to convey my words like lyrics to a song. If I had to choose whether to be deaf or blind I would choose to be blind because I couldn’t fathom a day without hearing the melodious sounds of Stevie Wonder’s version of “As” or Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.”

Music connects with poetry that’s why it flows together so well.  Poetry is the outpouring of the heart and it expresses in words what music cannot.  When I write poetry it’s a form of release to me. It’s as if the ink is nourishment satisfying the needs of an unquenchable thirst the paper so blatantly holds. “Like the Song of Solomon his love is like a scripture to me. Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth; for thy love is better than wine this describes how in-depth my love is when I think of my brilliant mind.”

Art is eclectic so diverse and free when I think of all the colors of fall swirled into patterns mimicking the ripples of the ocean I get excited deep within. The oils and different textures mixed together by hand giving birth to a room that was plain and lifeless is exciting and liberating. Artwork gives a room warmth and substance. It helps creative minds to think clearer producing ideas that shoot like electric currents giving power to every fraction of the brain.

Photography captures every minuscule detail that the human eye would miss with just a click of a button.  Its been said that a picture is worth a thousand words but to capture a special moment never to be relived again is priceless.  A photo can depict any human emotion and can be compared to a time machine taking you back to the memories saved in the hard drive of the mind.  Photography is like a visual journal illustrating the memories of the past, present & future.

Choreography (dance) is by far the most creative and energetic aspect in the creative culture. To watch a ballet dancer perform with such style, elegance & grace is the epitome of artistic ability in my opinion. Choreography helps one to feel the passion in the music. It’s like sign language quietly illustrating a story being told.  It’s a beautifully crafted form of expression that everybody loves.

In conclusion, this season is the rise of the creative and highly talented era. If you have ideas step out the box and pursue your dreams the world is thirsty for artsy people such as yourself. If I can write a book of poetry based on my life experiences you can do whatever you put your mind to and succeed in it.

The Right People at the Wrong Time by Shana Jay

Processing the hurt………
I opened up
I gave my all
Still trying to comprehend how I managed to let you in
You saw the nakedness of my soul
I was transparent with my thoughts open with my fears
Here my dear ….here it is
I took a risk or should I say a plunge
I want to run and hide
Its feels like my world is about to collide
I made myself comfortable you put my mind at ease
I knew this was too good to be true
High off you, someone exciting and new
Snatched away just as quick as you came
Heartbreaks and 808’s
What I wanted was way too much for your plate
X’s and O’s I use to love those
Questioning myself
Dissecting the truth
Analyzing my thoughts and everything else when it comes down to you
Damn I pictured a happy ending
Staring at this painting on the wall
It reminds me of the warmth I felt when I laid my head on your chest
The colors of Fall is what I see
As the days go by our love will be a distant memory
No tears just really dazed and confused
My beautiful King the man of my dreams
 My Brilliant Mind……….
“The right people at the wrong time”
