Melody of thoughts
Started with a prelude in his head
Vocals in his heart
Hit the perfect tone every time
Like a treble to the bass
Or a clef to a staff
High-hats led the way and turned his lyrics into rap
A tap of his foot pulsed a rhythm in the sky
And a whistle from his lips
Made it like an ensemble passing by
Repeated again and again
It held his emotions deep inside
But the snare of the drums
Beat too loud for them to hide

A lonely light lingers in a room full of darkness
She shimmers and glows
She dances and drips down to the floor
A breeze engulfs her
But fights off the urge to stop
She’s the entertainment of the night
The star of the show
Bright as any in the sky,
Glowing for all see
Alone in the world
But her fire inside burns bright
The beat in her heart pulses the room
And eyes follow up and down
Her every twirl
A world trembles in fear
She dances no more
A lonely light lingers in a room full of darkness

Hello, excuse me, is this thing on?
I was told that I have only one minute to talk and I have a few things to say. My name is Vincent and I’m just your normal 21 year-old kid from New Jersey. I sit back, live life and try to learn new things along the way. I stay out of trouble and always keep family and others above everything else. I’m here because I was promised by the President of the United States that I have one minute to say whatever is on my mind. This is my first time in front of a camera, let alone being on television, so just bare with me, I might come off as a little nervous.
Well let me begin, my first issue is war, why are we still in it and why are our troops overseas? I thought that we have achieved our mission. I know, many agree and many disagree with me, but I’m just looking at it from my point of view. We promised to send troops home, but many are still out on duty. No one should be out in different countries, they need to be home in the United States. If we are out overseas to look for oil then we don’t need soldiers to do so. Nothing good ever comes out of war, send home all of our troops.
Next, television and music. I am tired and fed up of what music is played on the radio and what is shown all over the world. It is just ridiculous and inappropriate that we are spreading these kind of messages to our younger generations. Many are wondering why, why are we in debt, why are there no jobs and why is the economy is down? I think the messages through music and television are part of the reason why.
Kids turn on the radio or turn on the television and reenact what they see. Girls think that it is okay to be sluts and boys think that it is okay to be pimps. Then we sit back and wonder why there are so many teenagers who are pregnant. Instead of going out and trying to pursue an education or better the world, many kids are sitting home sleeping through life, hoping that the world is handed to them.
It is not entirely their fault, some of the blame falls on the media and you Mr. President. It is the media that wants to make money. They know what sells and that is why they put this sexual, degrading products on the radio and on television. For some reason or another, people love to watch and listen to it and the media knows that. They know that views equals money. Do they care about the message that they are sending out? No. They are self-centered people who only care about themselves.
I’m sorry, but Mr. President, you sit up in your office behind your millions of dollars as the world turns and things get worse. The poor keep getting poorer and the rich keep getting richer. Yet, behind it all you promise change, you promise a different life and a different future for the children of tomorrow. I was naive to realize it, but what you said was mostly a lie. I’m not singling you out Mr. President, I’m talking about you as well as the presidents before you and presidents who are next to follow. All of whom promise the world, but never deliver.
I think that I have surpassed my one minute limit. I am sorry if I have offended any one with this speech, but I’m just speaking from the heart.
Just like Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, I too have a dream.
I dream that the world can one day wake up and realize some of its flaws instead of glorifying itself. I dream for a bright future and a brighter tomorrow.
Thank you all for your time.

What does the word beautiful really mean?
Is it what the media tells us is beautiful or is it really that beauty is in the eye of the beholder? I believe beauty is defined by what the media tells us. It shown to us in every magazine, commercial and television show. Just because beauty is shown in that way, doesn’t mean what it is defined as.
Many people take one look in a mirror and they look away. They say to themselves that they are not “beautiful” and say that they don’t have the perfect eyes, nose or teeth. Then again what does the word, perfect actually mean? The answer is the word, perfect and the word beautiful is whatever you want it to mean. It is a perception, just because someone thinks that something is beautiful or attractive it doesn’t have to mean that you believe the same exact thing.
I really want to know who is the person that invented mirrors. I believe they can be categorized under the top five worst inventions of all time. The only point of a mirror is for someone at themselves and identify their flaws instead of identifying their something good about them self. Even so-called actors and actresses look in the mirror and even though they are considered “perfect” they can still point out flaws about them self. If these “beautiful” people thought they were fine the way they are, then why do they go out and spend millions of designer clothes and cosmetic surgery? It is so they can try to look their best at all times, or what people consider “looking their best”.
Look at any front page of a magazine and tell what do you see. You see the media’s idea of the most attractive person. Why is this the model of what is considered beautiful? Instead of having the most attractive person on the cover of a magazine, how about you put someone who as actually made in impact on someone’s life. I am talking about someone who doesn’t go around, flaunt their looks and collect their paychecks. Try putting someone in the spotlight who has invented something that made a difference or maybe someone who spent their time helping others. Those are people who deserve to be on magazine covers and have cameras follow them around.
Next time you look into the mirror, just think. I want you to think, is this what I want to be? Do these clothes, shoes, and style fit who I really am.
Make sure you are being the person that you want to be and not the person you want others to think you are. Stay true to yourself and don’t change for anyone, no matter what others think of you.
People can call you unattractive and this and that, but so what? That is their opinion and who cares what they may think. Want to know the real definition of beautiful? The people who don’t judge a book by a cover are the true definition of beautiful. Someone who can be them self without worrying what others think of them is what the word “beautiful” really means.

The mic is in your hands and there is an audience hanging on your every word. What you say is broadcasted over the radio airlines and is listened to by millions of people.
Some embrace their power to spread a positive message and others don’t.
I think that radio stations are at an all time low point. A point where there needs to be a censor on some of the music that is played. It is to a point where it is getting crazy. Music artists can say whatever they want and people will listen, they don’t care if it is spreading a negative message, they just want to jam out to a catchy beat.
Artists like Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller make music just to make money. Almost all of their songs are about money, drugs, guns and exploiting women. There is no positive message to any of the songs that they have. Those songs are the same songs that get played on the radio, because people think they are catchy and popular.
Not all artists spread a negative message. Rap artists like Lupe Fiasco, J.Cole, and Common all spread music that actually have some kind of meaning. I’m not saying every single song they have is positive, but a good majority of their music is positive. Music artists like them still don’t get much play on the radio. Even when they do, it’s just usually one song that is over played and the meaning behind the lyrics are over looked.
So music with a negative message gets rewarded with radio air time. Music with a positive message gets put on the shelve.
The thing is that it’s going to get worse before it gets better. If I was a parent I would not want my kid listening to the music that they play on the radio. It’s disgusting, degrading and doesn’t deserve to get the amount of popularity that it does.
Maybe one day someone will finally catch on and realize.
