What Is My Yell?
I am too quiet.
I think about this often.
While it is a good thing to listen and quietly observe, there is a time for yelling. Problem is, I have not used yelling in the right way. I have directed yelling at the wrong people, at the wrong times, for the wrong reasons. This is the wrong yell!

Mercy Is The Only Way Out
I was listening to music while writing code/programming and this song came one and totally gripped my heart.
Andra Day's voice is amazing and the music's irregular nature drew me into the depths of the lyrics.
It's like Andra Day is speaking to me and speaking for me at the same time in this song when she sings...
I can't hear love 'cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
(I can't hear love 'cause we're at war)
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way out
Props to the writers, Cassandra Monique Batie and Dave Wood.
Powerful, amazing, awesome song.

Why I Make Moody Instrumental Musicc
Why I Make Moody Instrumental Music - Testimony by TaurusBeats aka Taurus M. James
In 1997, I was following the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan, striving to be the best I could be in the Nation of Islam. One night, I prayed to God to, "Tell me what I am missing".
I was broke, bitter, angry and depressed. I wanted Him to tell me why my life was so messed up. I knew there was more to life - more to my life, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't make my life better.
The next morning, I awoke saying, "Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the Son of God!" I was sitting straight up in my bed by the third time I spoke these words.
