Water it holds and balances, purifies everything within it's radius, huh so does colour every colour known to man has derived from the colour black and nothing can contest that it is a natural fact.

Black History Month...huh an old wolf prowls while adapting, learning in doing this he's paying it forward to the young ones that will listen. To think my black history which is boundless and limitless has been reduced to a month in acknowledgement. How vanguard it is to be a person of colour in a Y generation with limitless possibilities yet limited worth.

There's no month to celebrate white folks how indifferent people of colour have a scheduled calendar every cycle to celebrate their ethnicity.

Am not a month my predocessors blood and sweat and influence in this world is worth in a multitude of currencies unpayable. So I'll celebrate those who paved the way for myself others with compassion, bravery and fortitude in giving their lives for future generations. And I celebrate them everyday I step out into the world especially how a represent myself individually.

Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them and within them.
