i have been listening to “the miseducation of lauryn hill” this week.
one of my top 10 albums.
if you never heard it,
ima need you to hop on it.
like 5 minutes ago.
so i’ve been in a weird place emotionally…
but this album has been helping me navigate through my feelings.
and “why does it hurt so bad”…
as you know,
i like to rummage through shit.
if i like something,
jamari fox will find out the “ins and outs” on a full investigation.
it’s only the foxhole way
so in my sniffing around,
i found myself reading up on this timeless album on wikipedia.
well lauryn was quoted as saying this:
“every time I got hurt,
every time I was disappointed,
every time I learned,
I just wrote a song.”
she just let her feelings flow and look what it created.
something that helped the world relate to her pain.
i’m going to keep on doing that.
if you get “exhausted” reading my struggles,
or when i’m sad,
or simply when i’m ready to give up,
then like oprah said:
“lots of people want to ride with you in the limo,
but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”
…and i need you to be there for my ranting,
and complaining all the way there.
you’ll learn to deal…
or you’ll be at the bus stop once i make it.
low-key: please remind me of all the bad days when i make it.
