spread the noLove

i had an awesome conversation with one of the noLove homies about our lives’ and how we are perceived by other people… it was a dope conversation… it got to the point where neither of us were talking… instead, we were sitting next to each other thinking deeply about what we had both just said and agreed upon… again, it was dope…

do you remember elementary, middle, and high school? do you remember the relationships you had? do you remember how close you were to your homies? i do… i still am extremely close with my childhood friends… not all of them… but a lot of them… we have a genuine love for each other… obviously as you get older, the dynamics of your relationships change… it doesn’t matter if they are friends, family, acquaintances, significant others… they all change… as do we… but the love stays the same…

back to the conversation i recently had with my homie, we talked about how people develop detailed perceptions of other people based on brief social interactions with one another… we both agreed that this was unfair… can people know who you are from the things you say? can they know who you are from seeing you skate for 30 minutes? what i am getting at is that we rarely take the time to really get to know one another…

i tried to figure out how we can go from having such intimate relationships when we are younger to distant ones as we get older… i realized we are forced to go to school and see the same people for most of our childhood… the repetition of these social interactions solidified our image at school and/or in the community… as you get older, these social interactions are not forced anymore… you create them… and you end them… you can be a stranger to everyone… you have a clean slate wherever you go or whatever you do… love is harder to find…

so, now no one knows who we are, right? they don’t know anything we have done in our life, right? noLove…

every little thing we do from here on out defines who we are in peoples’ eyes… instances that we may think are meaningless or insignificant can be seen by others as the opposite… every decision, every belief, every move we make defines us… but not necessarily to ourselves… to others… this doesn’t seem fair… does it?

i think the person we become is determined by the way we treat one another… not by the silly mistakes we make, beliefs we have, or things we say… if we treat everyone with love and respect that speaks volumes above any and all judgment… we need to build more relationships that have some sort of love in them… we need to take care of each other whenever we can… this world is harsh but we have each other to lean on… so lean on me…

peace and noLove…
