The Seed

“The human mind is like a fertile ground where seeds are continually being planted. The seeds are opinions, ideas, and concepts. You plant a seed, a thought grows, and it grows. The word is like a seed and the human mind is so fertile!”

-Don Miguel Ruiz

Rocket: A Poem By Dominique

To know me, to know me
I can tell you, I don't make it easy
To be honest, I'm still learning myself
There are parts of me that I turned off, hidden for years now
If I didn't, I don't think I could function as a "normal" person in this society

I was born an Artist, something that I hide
Here to "starve" that's what they say, Give your heart and soul for little to no pay
I've got book smarts too....
but no matter what I do my he[art] always goes back to Art

There are moments when I'm immersed in my craft and I've never felt so alive
Never have I felt so close to God than through ancient movements
I almost feel like I can fly
Every time it is spiritual...

So, maybe if you want to get to know me, you should start by dancing with me
Experience how my eyes light up with Hope
How my hips sway with the same enthusiasm as my Ancestors did when they heard the drums
And feel my heartbeat jump from excitement with the possibility that maybe---
I can fly.

Aha! I see what they did there....

Earlier I was jammin' out to Sananda Maitreya  formerly known as the artist Terence Trent D'Arby on spotify and his song called 'To Know Someone Deeply is To Know Someone Softly' came on. As soon as I heard it I instantly recognize the beat. 

*sings* "Summer raiiiiinnn"- the song sounded just like Carl Thomas song "Summer Rain" or rather Thomas sounded like Terence Trent D'Arby.

So, I did some research and found out Carl Thomas & TTD both sampled the GENIUS that is Stevie Wonder 'Summer Soft' and Carl Thomas used TTD's version/beat.

SO, the music geek in me was overly excited about this and thought I would share. lol

Here are all three songs below:
