“Box” by Author, G. D. Grace

Brainwashed to believe that we should always be grateful for the scraps thrown to us throughout life.

Taught to believe in a blond-haired-blue-eyed savior that darns the halls of our places of worship.

Instructed to be thankful for a decent paying job that breaks our spirits slowly over years, just because we need those medical benefits.

Frightened to take a chance or make that leap of faith and follow dreams because we don’t want to loose that false security of our 9-5.

Putting on blinders so that we don’t see what’s really going on in this great big beautiful world, because if we do we just might loose our seat in the hereafter.

Afraid to step beyond what we’ve been taught out of restrictions placed on us since the day we were born.

Confined to the lessons dictated to us by leaders who tell us that they know who, what, when, where, how & why we should lead our lives.

Too proud to show weakness or feelings because if you are living right then you shouldn’t have any worries, nor should you have any second guesses.

Dictated to by a media that tells you how too look, how to walk, what to wear, what to drive, how to stay young, how to love, how to hate, and the time of the year that you should be giving and showing you care.

Memorized by technology and her advances; driven to wait outside all night just to be the first to have and own that new “thing”.

Afraid to move beyond that crabs-in-a-barrel mentality and rise above the ranks to a higher purpose, and too afraid to allow another to climb outside.

Creating new lives without the monetary or mental means to cultivate and care for them so that they can lead productive lives.

Hooked on blaming and expecting something for nothing, instead of utilizing higher education and working from the bottom and rising to the top.

Too busy trying to be a friend instead of being a parent and role model.

Too self-absorbed and insecure to chase a dream instead of a piece of ass.

Too wrapped up in outer-appearance to really harvest inner-beauty.

(I’ll add more onto this later, but for right now these are the things that moved me right now)

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
