  • ''Just because something someone says about themselves contradict the truth you heard, doesn't mean they are the ones lying. Sources lie too.''

  • ''This is who I am but not all I am.''
  • ''Learn how to rationalize your own emotions, in their irrational nature, and you're home free.''
  • ''When I look at society, at the clothing, the talk and everything else, I am repulsed. I am repulsed. Our current disposition is a direct reflection of our opposition to order, truth and the Lord. All throughout my journey, misjudgment has been a factor. I live my life without adhering to the same concepts that society does. I don't live within the 'labels' society place on things although these things are labels in themselves. It gets deep. Being misjudged is so frustrating because people talk at you and place you into categories that couldn't be further from who you are. For instance, does a hoodie make a man a gangster because another man wearing one considers himself one? Does a certain type of art confine one to the stereotypes and values attached to an art that derived from it in nature? If one just, perhaps, liked the article of clothing itself, does that mean they are trying to mimic the false values associated with it in accordance to the culture in which they lived? Even if they didn't embrace or believe in these things? These are examples of the connotations I desire to see destroyed in society. They are not always accurate. People see external factors and assume they understand the internal. It's not always that black and white, which is crazy, because I do believe some things to be black and white. This is just not one of them. The clothes I wear, the way I act, the way I talk and even my choice of food is a product of my own mind. Who I am is in no way correlated with the next man. My journey isn't defined by the next. I don't desire to be what the next man is and, hopefully, vice versa. Being misjudged, like misunderstood, is a thorn in the flesh, for people don't accept you for who you are because they already have prejudices in mind about your identity. This is why I'd recommend anybody to stay rooted spiritually and turn attention away from the physical. It will save you a lot of pain and torment.''
    society, culture, truth
  • ''The fig trees are mirrors.''
  • ''Untraditional, unprofessional, unconventional.''
  • ''The bible urges us to stay spiritually minded (Col.3: 2) . So that take us from 'individual' to conceptual concerning warfare. But physically is the reality of the flesh so it's rational to speak from that perspective if speaking to the not yet awakened carnal mind.''
    truth, spiritual
  • ''The concept of using other people's 'flows' and styles in poetry is one of pure ambiguity. Because, while some may indeed 'copy' other individuals, it also remains a 'label' that  critics use to discribe original talent that they don't have a definition for. These claims usually don't have any substance but neither do the accusers so truth is very rarely sought after. I pride myself on my originality and I could never 'steal' nobody else's style because I have my own. I am very proud of my growth in the poetry community and as a person. It has had nothing to do with any one else. Any rebuttals of this are nothing but defamation.''
    Poetry, writing
  • ''See, that's the thing about society. Speak 'too much' truth and it has to find a way to assassinate your character to try to devalue to power of your truth. That's the same tactic it uses all the time. That's definitely to be expected.'''
    Society, truth, character
  • ''Our ministries are just one piece to God's elaborate puzzle. No one is more important than the next. We must find the Light before too late.''

Best Poem of Dexsta Ray

I Do My Own Thing

Just the other day... a little birdie came
Told me that I had taken a LOSS
I don't have a problem
That's the name of it all
Only if you are competing though
The statement was
Because... I do my own thing
I don't compete
There's nobody in the world I am trying to defeat
The only reason why I strive is so I can be free
Being able to provide for my
Wife and my seeds...
I try to be a better me everyday
I want to make a difference
So there's nothing more important than to stay committed
Satan tries to throw distractions but ...

Its Okay

Don't think I don't know
Because I've peeped your agony
It had to be
The cause' of this feeling
Grabbing me
And actually
I've been trying to free my face from the tears
But now my fallen soldier is the one who's raised me for years
Now you're in constant pain
