“We’ve become so numb to what we’re sayin’. Our culture founded from oppression yet we don’t have acceptance for ’em. Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board. A word rooted in hate yet our genre still ignores it. Gay is synonymous with the lesser. It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion. Gender to skin color. Complexion of your pigment. The same fight that lead people to walk-outs and sit-ins. Human rights for everybody. There is no difference. Live on! And be yourself!” Macklemore feat. Ryan Lewis – “Same Love”
I don’t know how many of you watched the Grammy’s tonight, but it was one great award show. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love” was just so moving. I know there’s a lot of controversy with gay rights/gay marriage, but I just don’t see the reason for it. We get so worked up about major changes, such as legalizing gay marriage, when it’s not a huge issue to worry about. This post is not to debate about gay marriage. I completely support anyone if it makes them happy. Isn’t that what we’re all searching for in life? Happiness? We let issues bring us down that sometimes don’t even affect us. Let people live the way they want to live. Every single person is struggling with some type of battle and we forget about that most of the time. Love is the movement. Take away your fear and you’ll go far in life. Times change pretty quickly and I understand it’s difficult to adapt, but worrying about yourself is all you really need to do. (Even that’s not the smartest idea) Once you start letting others dictate your mood, you’re opening up the door to negativity and worries. How are you supposed to live a happy life now? Realize that change occurs constantly and realize that you are in control of how you feel. Live your life the way you want to but also let others live the way they want as well. Each and every one of us deserves to be happy.
Let go and move on.
