Spoken Word Piece: 3
To The Man That Hurt Me The Most
D A D
Maybe the word dad stands for Deadbeat And Drugs.
Or at least that’s what mine was.
Never showed his wife and daughters love
Would come home with the scent of other women on his clothes
Transformed into the hulk when angry, tired and hungry.
Age 12, is when I caught him needle to skin
Cheating his way with steroids during his body building days
Never was my vision in a haze
My real eyes, realized, his real lies.
The broken glass matched the broken hearts and now broken family
3 boxes of sleeping pills that he committed suicide with.
Luckily the doctors pumped out all the pills outta his system
Wish they had pumped out all his bullshit along with it too.
I love you.
Never have I heard these 3 words coming from his mouth
Up until he lost us
Now he would text me… call me… and Facebook message me that he loves me.
I can’t grasp the history behind my last name
Because he failed at teaching me what my family history is all about.
Because of him, I would see my family on his side only at weddings and funerals
For teaching me the most without doing shit
You’re in my rearview now
I’m not looking at you. I’m looking past you.
Every single person in this class is talented in their own unique way. I honestly didn’t think that I would enjoy being in the class this much. I learned a lot about our classmates, even the ones that I don’t really talk to that much.
For the projects, I enjoyed every single one. However, there…
I agree! Thanks for liking mine. I really enjoyed yours. You’re really talented. I want a copy of your album!
You showed me your true self. When all i loved was the lie. A perfect lie, which you let fall to the ground- and now, it’s old and soiled.
Gallimard (Act III, Scene II Page 89)
He is telling Song that what he loved was a lie. He’s fantasy of Song was in reality false. (Song, originally being a man, but playing the part of a woman) Song replies, “So- you never really loved me? Only when I was playing a part?”
I want the word faith going down my neck and for it to be translated into the filipino tribal writing, Alibata. Being raised in a traditional Catholic family, everything is rooted in God and in faith. My actions, beliefs, and thoughts are based on having faith. I want my tattoo to be on my spine because my family, God, and my filipino culture are my backbone. what i live for.
Another tattoo that i want to get in the future is my mom’s last name, Gutierrez. Because my parents are divorced, i never felt a sense of closeness to my dad’s side of the family. I thought about changing my last name, Medellin to Gutierrez, but that’ll be too much of a hassle since i’m going to be getting married soon (jk. hehe) In my heart and my mind I will always be a Gutierrez. I am more in tune with my mom’s side and they are so supportive and loving that i forget that i have my dad’s side of the family also. (sounds horrible, but thats the reality of it) I want the tattoo on my rib below where my bra would be or maybe on my wrist.
If i get tattoo crazy, I would want a maori/hawaiian tribal tattoo on my foot. (like in the picture above) I know its going to hurt like a b**** but its so cute. I’ve been dancing tahitian and hula for almost a year plus extra classes in the years before. I plan on dancing until I’m old and have my children do it too. I love the language, how your movements make stories, and how happy i am when i see improvement and when i perform.
My mom is totally against me getting a tattoo, because she believes that it’s going against the bible and God. In my opinion, i think that its okay to get tattoos if there’s a meaning behind it and if you really thought about it.
Hey class. I know this is supposed to be for school stuff, but I’m promoting my album everywhere I can. If I get my album pressed out by the time this quarter ends I’m going to give them out to everyone! But here’s a song that I’m going to leak out. You guys might know the sample too hahah. Don’t mind the beginning, we were messing aruond.. Lorisoul - Dear Clarissa.
Diggin’ it! I instantly knew the sample. i think i’m falling-mymp.
Maoti Te Here
I Hiti Ai Te Mahana
No Te Here Nei A
I Hau Ai To Te Reva
We are fortunate that there is a thing called LOVE. No matter where you go, no mattter where you’re at, it will always be there.
( Not the exact translation but the meaning behind it)
