Trying out new things in my artistic and expressive self. I liked the last challenge and thought it would be nice if I converted it into a small video.
If I can’t join the Illuminati,
Maybe I could at least be a Mason.
I can stop doing drugs, no more sex
so I don’t feel in life, I’ve been wasteful.
I can stop talking of politics, no more opinion
no more complains on this chaotic nation.
Lets act like a slut, or a whore,
lets keep inequality, lets all be hateful.
We can only endorse evolution
and never talk of god’s amazing creation.
I can pretend you yelling at me ‘Beaner’
lets me know you can be playful.
Discriminate me and follow the rhetoric
and the narrative so successful
that shows the world that actions don’t matter,
just the words that show strength,
and lies that make something graceful.
Ken’s verses (Ken’s Twitter)
I always thought the ugly duckling was the prodigal son.
I’m stuck living a lie that’s so tasteless and playful
cause I’m just another lost soul trying hard to be graceful
and it still doesn’t matter how hard I try or how hard I work
all you do is criticize, tell lies, and call me a joke.
I’m like the fucked-up restoration on the painting of Jesus
I know the artist meant well, but it sure as hell, didn’t pleas us.
The intention doesn’t matter, it’s the outcome that judges
makes me a day late, a buck short, a cripple with no crutches.
Just want to cut my own wings off and fly at the same time
I miss the times when what you don’t see, is what you don’t mind.
So now I’m still stuck with this lie while I sit and grow hateful
I told you I was a lost soul trying my hardest to be graceful.
I don’t look up to authority
but I respect those who share knowledge
I don’t have to follow guidelines
we don’t need rules on decency.
I don’t need you to say
what is right or wrong
I don’t need you to accept
my plants or the bong
I don’t need your help to succeed
I don’t need your negativity and doubts
to succeed in life… I don’t need your permission.
Ken’s verses (Ken’s Twitter)
Lately things have been changing faster than the speed of light
it’s been way too damn long since there’s been innocence in sight
like a drug affecting me straight to the brain.
My time on this earth is a slow passing drain.
Political correctness and extreme sensitivity
have joined forces to expand cultivated plasticity
no space for imagination just mandatory submission
lately to be myself, I’ve had to ask for permission.
Hello… I am a legion of ideas and Personas, but my name is Jahaziel. I am a poet in search of life’s light and happiness. I have written 3 poetry books up to date. I wish to write a novel and hopefully I have the opportunity to do so in the near future.
For my own sake, I am now writing a bit more on my opinions on life and my journey on finding happiness, since life is too short and my memory scattered and unavailable most of the time. I figured if I keep my thoughts, believes and experiences saved somewhere other than my mind, perhaps they can come in handy for my kids in the future or someone else might benefit from what someone like myself can and is able to say. The world is full of colors, beauty, dangers and is constantly changing. Like the world I think my life, my opinions, my views, my persona seems to change but when viewed in detail one can see that not much really changes with the world itself, but is our surrounding that is constantly changing. We can either feed the beast inside us, or become the food being fed by the beast around us.
To have no child left behind
you have to push them through or hold everyone back,
to control the internet
Apple, Sony, Target and all companies need to experience a hack.
To control the constitution
our terrorist leaders need to plot another attack
if we do not have fear
our liberties will never give them back.
The more you say perfect
the more I notice the system’s crack
Things can’t stay as they are
we have to read politics
not just of our favorite movie or TV star
we have to talk of injustice and demand change
in our city and those that are far.
If we live in a democracy
why do we need a Czar?

I wrote a short poem once inspired by
The Young Turks 'Wolf Pac' This poem I wrote also because of the inspiration they gave me. I find them quite passionate on what they are doing, they can be very informative and funny. As I continue to enjoy their show and work, let’s hope I not only became passionate about politics as they are but manage to write something that can truly show their awesomeness.
I recently was able to see my work on a wall instead of storage, I must admit it looked better than I expected. For couple months I’ve been trying to find a location where I could display some of my canvas. Previously I had a piece here and there on other galleries/expo but its the first time I get to see my work displayed in an entire wall. I must say that I truly enjoy it. It inspires me to try and accomplish having a full gallery of my work, which hopefully I do get to achieve in the near future.
If you come across this problem there are couple things you can do, the easiest is the have the first list item -which will bring up the hidden menu- not be a link and use the onClick=”return true” within the < li > tag.
If your skills in CSS are up to the task, you can also make it work with pure CSS, as some of the work in the Innovar Marketing Portfolio (http://www.innovarmarketing.com)
I had some free time to read what some of my colleagues have been doing or what work or words they have to inspire the rest of us. On one of the latest post of Matt Kloskowski(http://www.mattk.com), an amazing photographer from Florida who on this blog post I enjoyed talks about how many of us try to make our own version of things. I agree with his post and opinion and I too when something amazing catches my eye feel the need to create not the same, but my own version of that Landscape, or in my case portrait, movement, action. Photography is so beautiful because just as any form of art… Even if every subject has been created before you, it has not been created by your hand, your version and perspective of things is new.
Matt’s -why so manay people love Landscape Photography post…
I think every artist, or mostly everybody for that matter feels we do not belong where we are in life, or in what we are doing. There have been times where I’ve had that emotion, and on the urge to get rid of that feeling, or deal with it, I came up with an idea for a video edit to express a little of what goes inside my brain.
How many times do we charge with all our energy and will to do something, but for whatever reason we end up failing along the way? How many times do we sit waiting for the perfect moment, and we sit too long our time passes? How are we to know when the right time has come?
I believe the more you try, the more you will learn about what works, what not to do again, and eventually learn to take chances on opportunities that can generate many doors to open along your way. It is essential to fail, in order to succeed. Thinking back when I saw my kids learning to walk. They constantly kept falling down, over and over again. Yet, despite their failure they kept standing up and trying. Just like a baby learning to walk, we live our life constantly trying to do something failing, and trying again. Sometimes the best way to succeed is to have someone hold us while we can stand on our own, walk holding ourselves in whoever and whatever can hold us till we are capable of standing alone.
Success does not rely on when or how you try, but you’re willingness to keep trying and the intensity of your effort. The essence of time is such beauty that if you invest time in something you are passionate about you will see positive results from it. Don’t let your ego blind you on taking or letting go certain opportunities. Success is at our reach, take the time and effort to stretch enough to grab it.
