A Help Meet for Him

Genesis 2:18-24 And the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Come see if society has taught us these lessons – “Choice”

“she needs makeup
to cover up
because society taught her

to coat her lips
in a soft delicate hue

to beautify those eyes.
that shan’t dare to dream, and if they may,
those dreams shouldn’t see the light of day.

needed is a pink blush
(artificial of course)
to add a natural red tinge
to those otherwise ugly cheekbones.

to edit her skin tone
she needs a thick layer of foundation
of a shade that somehow
garners her some appreciation.

but how long
before we realise
she ‘needs’ none of these.
she has a choice.

I planned to link the video to this post, but like so many other things on Facebook, it seems to have fallen into a rather unfindable abyss. The video detailed the struggles the rapper endured throughout his childhood: his mother’s abuse, and the bullying he was subjected to as a white kid in a predominantly black community.

He began rapping as a means to cope. He memorized the dictionary. He entered rap-battles.

And he lost.

It wasn’t until Eminem adopted an alter ego that he became a household name. Slim Shady was the man who made us all stand up. He took hold of the rap scene in 1999, and held on with murderously tight death grip…
