Painting silhouette collarge 

Today me and my lil one are creating mixed media collarge using a number of art medias. I really enjoy being able to wake up and create whatever is possible.

So my son is a 2-year-old and he is sooo forward in his concentration and creativity. I encourage this in him because the sky is not the limit and if he is interested in something that will not be detrimental to his health and good for his mind I will allow him to read to draw to pain to see graffiti or live arts. I feel that it is important the youth of today to have a broader mind, Especially now that technology and other things are replacing alot of traditional learning and games.

AT school

tramps stunk

boys picked noses

straight hair got lice

light skin or white skin

girls got chosen

adolescent boobs

sexualised

boys used girls for head game

back of the shed

popularity meant more

coz self life

got taken

from the day

at 5 being told to sit

in an uncompromising

position

backs straight legs crossed

fingers on lips

don’t say nothing whilst I’m talking

teachers sounded in human but as I got

older I soon realised how human they were

they just brainwashed my newly formed

human self into becoming a slave to there

sorcery.

wow so much to look back

on

never thought I would be

thinking these things

until I became a parent.

son

son

you like the star

in the sky

you shine amongst thousands

you like gold dust I kept

it safely in between

the hands of mine

that once felt like

it never had a use

until you become a reason

son, you smile like you

know me

like you have known me all

of my life.

Son, you are my first

good morning

and last goodnight

you are the reflection

of me

a reflection I am trying

to perfect

so you can learn not

from my mistakes

but from my smile.
