Take a Knee

I take a knee, not because you want me to.

I take a knee, not because you ask me to.

I take a knee, not because of the solidarity of the protesters.

I take a knee, not in the name of racism.

I take a knee, not because of systemic racism, which has been going on for centuries.

I take a knee, not for the reasons you think.

I take a knee because I have some things to say.

I take a knee because it’s the only thing I can do.

I take a knee because it’s the right thing to do.

I take a knee because of what our God has done for me.

I take a knee because Jehovah gave his only begotten son to save our lives.

I take a knee in the name of the Son our Lord Jesus The Christ (Matthew 16:16, Luke 1:31-32).

I take a knee for this reason, no matter how much faith you put into man, he will always fail (Psalm 146:1-5).

I take two knees for the faith, hope, and love I have in God.

Hope

I always had high hopes for my life. Regardless, of what other people thought.

I couldn’t CONFORM to what other people wanted me to do.

God made me unique and special with all my imperfections.

I am a strong, open-minded, opinionated, confident, independent woman.

I am comfortable In my skin.

I do have bad moments, days, and months.

It’s just different shades of me.

I love all of me the good, the bad, and the nasty.

We all have different shades of ourselves, whether we acknowledge it or not.

All I can do is be me.

“Shout out to the old me, and everything you showed me. Glad you didn’t listen when the world was trying to slow me. No one could control me. I had to mess it up before I really got to know me(5 seconds of Summer)”.

The class of 2020 had to endure the pain of being robbed of their spotlight to shine on the stage.
Our children had to face the realization of not being able to have physical contact with friends or family outside the home.

We became prisoners in our homes in 2020.

The city that never sleeps (NYC) finally went to sleep.
Only stray animals and rats walk the streets.
For the first time, the streets are deserted and full for dullness.

The quarantine can do a lot to people mentally and physically. It’s not just about isolation from others. You find yourself slowing down from life in general. You have time to think about everything you had done in your life. It’s just you and your thoughts no interruptions or excuses. Time literally slows down you begin to realize there is so much time on your hands to complete the things you had postponed because of life.

You start to think about the people you surround yourself with the good and the bad ones. The evaluating process begins with the past and current relationships you had. You start wondering if you should make amends with people or just leave it alone. It’s amazing how you realize the actions you have taken in the past weren’t completely thought out. Now you analyze every move you make. The daydreams start to become stronger. You are more eager now than ever to hit the pavement running.
