The Wish List

Photobucket

Sometimes I Wish...

• I could play the saxophone.
• I didn’t curse so much.
• All the violence would end.
• Monique would stop screaming.
• People would leave judging others to GOD.
• I didn’t procrastinate as much as I do.
• My student loans would disappear.
• Tupac never signed with Death Row.
• Jabari’s body was bulletproof and he would be alive right now.
• J’Dilla was still alive.
• People gave more and took less.
• Sarah Palin would retire from politricks.
• Everybody had food, clothing and shelter.
• Black men were more unified.
• I could know what my dog thinks.
• The Black National Anthem was more accepted.
• I could create a cure for hatred.
• One day I’ll write a book that will be considered a classic.
• More people knew that genuine love requires concentration and effort.
• We would do a better job of taking care of one another.

What's on your wish list?

  2. Beautiful...

    • I didn’t curse so much. I do that myself and am trying to express myself in less expletive ways LOL! Sometimes it just works.

    • All the violence would end. Me too! TODAY would be great.

    • Monique would stop screaming. Overdone! That is one of the reasons I stopped watching - aside from her lack of interviewing technique.

    • People would leave judging others to GOD. "Amen!!!" It's why the severance of my relationship with a family member was so on time. Judge and muthaf***in jury! Not your place!

    • I didn’t procrastinate as much as I do. I'm guilty of this myself. Working on it though.

    • My student loans would disappear.

    • Tupac never signed with Death Row. Man. Tupac was such a voice before his time and is so needed NOW. That is why he was assassinated...

    • Everybody had food, clothing and shelter. I mean at the very least, damn. We need to get right with this. In this lifetime.

    • Black men were more unified. My god! This is a wish of mine before mine gets to adulthood. For real. We need something other than the Million Man March that outlined all that was wrong - but not how to fix it.

    • I could create a cure for hatred. Yes, self-hatred because that is what WE are suffering from and it's killing us.

    • One day I’ll write a book that will be considered a classic. Don't wish! Do it!. If you ever get a chance to watch Lady in the Water, do it. People bash M. Knight because they don't understand his work, but there is a HUGE lesson to be learned in that movie and it speaks to this.

    My wish is that WE, as a race of people realize that we are better together, than apart. I think that too many of us have lost our way and have no thoughts of fixing what's in the house, before we go outside our house seeking cohesion with others. We are better in numbers. Fuck that "We are the World" shit until we can solidify our world within.

  3. I LOVE your list! I too wish I could play the saxophone, didn't procrastinate, and that J'Dilla was still alive :/ And you made me laugh with the Monique screaming thing, I swear that woman only has one volume level: OBNOXIOUS.

    Here's what's on my wish list:

    I wish..
    -I could vibrato on my violin, especially since I've been playing since I was in kindergarten
    -I didn't get writer's block so much
    -My parents weren't so African so they would let me do whatever I wanted
    -I actually liked some of my "friends"
    -People thought more before they spoke
    -I had a man
    -Young Money never materialized
    -That Uncle Sam wouldn't take so much of my paycheck
    -That all love was unconditional

    What a great post :) Thank you Jason!

    That GOOD GOOD Blog

  4. Mega potent list, Brotha Pen! Very cool entry.

    Hmmmm... let me see...

    I wish I had more quiet & respectful neighbors.

    I wish that thick black women would stop calling everyone "BABY!"

    I wish the rent in NY wasn't so damn HIGH!

    I wish people would manifest their love, instead of showcasing their hate.

    I wish my next publisher would honor our contract!

    I wish our President would grow a pair!

    I wish I could afford an extended vacation in Tahiti.

    I wish I had the same energy I had in my 20s.

    I wish I were paid all the back monies I'm owed.

    I wish I had better piano skillz.

    I wish all my favorite artists would tour together.

    I wish black people would have better representation in government, the media, the arts & in the world.

    I wish everyone would recognize their own potential.

    I wish I had more time to finish this wish list.



    One.

  5. Loved your list Jason...

    I wish...

    I wish i could play electric guitar and rock on stage with Prince or the Isleys.

    I wish everything was cheaper, food, gas, housing, education...then we could all live well.

    I wish my younger brothers would stop killing each other, that a gun was never invented or allowed into the hands of those who have no idea of discernment.

    I wish the people in Haiti could get some real care, loving care.

    I wish to also write a great classic, something that will be remembered for a long time.

    I wish Phyliss Hyman, Luther Vandross, and Marvin Gaye was still around.

    I wish to feel that great feeling on being in love, being loved and cared for by another...yeah, that's what i'm wishing for.

  6. greetings brother... such a good wish list... this post made me pull out and listen to bilal's "sometimes"...

    i wish i heard more soul artists on mainstream radio...

    i wish the US carried the tradition of siesta because i sure could use a nap in the middle of the day - right after lunch!

    i wish the media would present positive images of people of color.

    i wish that all people who are blessed with the gift of children do whatever they can, whatever they have to do to take care of and protect their babies.

    i wish i didn't feel so paranoid all of the time...

    i wish some of life's answers could be plain as day...

  7. Funny, I was thinking of writing a similar post, except mine would be called "genie in a bottle." Great minds (and hearts) think alike.

    I wish you may, I wish you might, have at least one wish, come to light!

  8. I wish Mo'Nique and Sherri Shepard would both go away.

    I wish I was living in Chicago.

    I wish there were White Castles on the West Coast!

    I wish my electric bike wasn't broken.

    Jason, Sarah Palin has retired from politics! She just can't say so because that would hurt her money.

  9. Co-signing!

    I wish I could tell "him" how much I need and want him in my life...maybe he already knows *sigh*

  10. LMAO @ wish Monique would stop screaming! And Sammore to that list.

    I Wish...
    -I didnt procrastinate...story of my life.
    -I was a millionare...who doesnt
    -I had a book publish by now.
    -people would stop supporting ignorant music
    -Everyone could find God
    -That the bullying & crime would stop.
    -I had a better job
    -That everyone would get along & stop judging

  12. I feel a new post coming on...

    I wish:

    Black girls would stop making every possible excuse to get out of being black: 1/2 Creole, 1/3 Cherokee, 1/4 German... Is being African American THAT bad?

    Getting a record deal involved being able to sing. The Mariah Carey from the 90's had more talent in her pinky finger than all of today's R&B chicks combined.

    I could make millions off some useless and irrelevant product like Sham Wow or Shake Weight just to laugh and say I did it.

    B, C, & D-list celebrities would stop paying photographers to take their pictures and sell them to blogs and tabloids. Someone just "happened" to be patrolling the Target parking lot with a camera waiting to jump out of the bushes and snap a few shots of you, right?

    Oh... Okay.

    Kanye West would come out with his own reality show called "Everybody watch my f*cking show!!!" Each episode will document how much of an amazingly gifted & talented artist he is and why everything he says and does is pure genius. It will feature guest appearances from Amber Rose, Taylor Swift, Matt Lauer, the college drop out bear & Selita Ebanks.

    Flutter was a real website (instead of twitter).

    People would stop rapping like Drake

    "Girls say I'm sexy.... like Taylor Lautner

    'Bout to do some laundry... fabric softener."

    I would stop talking about how bad I want to learn another language & actually do it.

    Sarah Palin would go away.

    People would use common sense when texting: You could have just spelled it correctly instead of using the same amount of letters to spell it incorrectly ie: strait VS. str8te

  25. great post..! I wish I could play the saxophone too.. I also wish that people could see the good in each other,,! btw say hello to your new follower..!

    ReplyDelete
  26. My daughter plays the saxophone, well sort of. Hahaha.

    Co-sign both Tupac & Dilla.

    Gave more & took less - I believe this is when there will be peace and, therefore, change in the world.

    The Black National Anthem sounds extremely good when song by the right voice.


    I wish: my health, peace & properity for my kids, enough money, best-selling novels, travels abroad, Heaven.

    That my little sister could fit in my back pocket and never leave my sight.
    That my intuition wasn't so damn sensitive.
    That facebook Christians would quit perpin'.
    That girls hated my bf's poetry and didn't bop so damn hard.
    That I didn't have a driving complex.
    That my lease was up.
    That I had footage of the ass holes who broke into my apt.
    That I had never stopped running track.
    That Lupe Fiasco would come on with this marriage proposal...ain't got all day!
    That I had a cheat code for relationships...like the all weapons code on Grand Theft Auto.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i agree with u about Dilla and alot on your list. Please, Sarah Palin needs to leave as well.

    I wish women would take the time to see that I'm a good man and not dismiss me so quickly.
    I wish I could start my life over.
    I wish I knew my birth mother and siblings.

    and alot more

    "That girls hated my bf's poetry and didn't bop so damn hard."

    Ha Ha...I saw his video that you have posted on your blog and it made me search for more of his stuff. He is dope. The admiration is well deserved. You're a dope poet in your own right, I'm sure you have nothing to worry about.

    Along with Lupe coming up with the perfect proposal, how about he puts out that album like right now!

  37. Now this should be done carefully as different Xbox games offers
    different amount of free codes. Credit cards are readily available in
    both Sixteen hundred or 1000 stage sects. These occasions aren't common and only occur when sponsored by some other company.

    My website; msp codes
