For the next 351 days, I will be writing entries under the title, ‘I AM TROY DAVIS.’ Moved to pick up the pen not merely by Troy Anthony Davis‘ death/execution, but more so by his life/evolution, I hope that there are those out there who can relate. If so, we must connect. We are already connected. Axé.
Whatever I have been holding back shall be released. I want to feel all of life in every moment. I want my life to be music: a song sung from the depths of my belly.
Like a good laugh, I want my words to ripple into the stream of consciousness, further, until it connects with the all. Words don’t stop. Please, don’t stop. Carry on into forever. Live like dreams. Emotional gravity, please leave me. I want to fly – higher than the clouds – into the cosmos.
Are there limits? Only those that I have defined. Allow me to release them today. In fact, make limits inconceivable today. Make everything achievable. Make every dream dreamable.
I am nothing.
I am everything.
Dreams once light and free, sometimes become shackles.
Free up my heart. Free up my mind, body, and soul to the order: the all in all. I just want to live. I just want to be me. Thank you for allowing this to be so. Axé.
My name is Jonathan ‘Jbro Mpeanaji’ Mahone, and I am one-half of (RAS) Riders Against the Storm. I AM TROY DAVIS.
