Hey it's me rocket.... I uhh lost my dad today.
He gave me the name rocket because I was his rocket and his first son was his rocket so I think he was keeping his legacy alive by nick naming me rocket. It's probably because I #justrocket. Meaning I'm fast like a rocket. He'd say " rocket slow down and think before you speak"! In everything I did he would teach me the right way to do it.
Everything he taught me is still with me. He loved his family with all his heart. He always will be my heart. He is here in spirit bringing light to my every room. He is my guardian angel.
I'm sad he didn't make it back from his walk today so that I could see him at least one more time, but I know he made it home and will see him again.
The father I loved, is the father I will always love because he lives in my heart.
Hey Dad, its Rocket, I hear you now more than ever before loud and clear I hear you, you gave me the world, I'll make you proud dad I promise. From now on all my words will be positive. One day we will meet again... This time in the light of understanding. Have fun up there and give Khali and grandma a big rocket hug for me I love you Daddy, I know you love me too.
You always knew what to say!
I'm gonna miss you so much in these days on this earth without you
Your son, rocket.
P.S. Thanks for giving me such a legacy to uphold I don't know if I've ever told you that. With that said I'm glad to have life love and rocket, and a father that knew who he was, and wasn't afraid to rocket.

A kid around the age of twenty six is walking down the street when he see's a book on the ground from afar. When he gets closer to the book it disappears right before his eyes he finds it odd and wonders if he was just imagining things. he shook it off and kept walking, never to fully catch his balance, this was when he almost tripped over the book. He picked up the book and starts to read it
kid: Imagination rules the world
Questioning his own knowledge.
The kid puts the book in his pocket and keeps walking hears more noises in the woods before now. Acorns drop like bullets, he looks around. Clanking from hammers to houses. Homes being renovated he thinks of his mind being his first home he starts to read and renovate his home as well. Hammers continue to pound. Fuck! The worker says about his job done incorrectly as he gets down the ladder, as the kid walks past the contractor, they exchange greetings. The kid gets around the bin waves to another car passing and goes behind a tree to take a leak and in the process finds another book. He takes a picture of this book since he forgot to take a picture of the first book crickets grasshoppers birds all the sounds of the woods start to kick in an add paranoia in the peace left in the piece of his mind. The peculair sound of acorns dropping on the surface of the water slowing down time for the second the acorn hits the water. A break of beautiful silence is cracked by another acorn falling on a house sounding loud enough to set off car alarms. The kid keeps walking. Listening to music by jhene aiko he starts to read the first book he picked up still questioning the dream/day he was having. The cars passed some waved some didn't. He cared less about them. He was too busy looking as this glowing book that made him so anxious to study every parameter of this book. He had no idea, but what the kid had in his hands was the answer to all problem.
He avoids cars as he walks reading this book when a car stops and it's asks if he wants a ride.
He gets in its his friend bb from Bitely and another kid he did not know. The kid begins to rant about this movie he is writing and asks them if they want to be in his movie. They ask him how much weed he smoked this morning, he admits he had a few. The passenger now known as bb's friend is rolling a blunt and begins to rant as well cutting off the kid in hopes his new proposition will be worth listening to. You ever heard of the cheddar boyz? he says miraculously the kid had he knew a few Detroit artist so he was hip to the groove, but he couldn't tell you a song they sang for shit. The passanger kept rolling the blunt and giving his bit on how all he needs is a studio and he's gonna be on. The kid had heard this numerous amounts of times he didn't want to waste his breath but he was interested in the conversation he agreed to meet up and get in the studio. The passenger went on as he lit the blunt and passed it to bb the kid gives bb his number and gets out. The kid says a few more words about some Detroit artists he knew and the passanger continues big Sean wants to do a mixtape with my brother right now. The kid was thinking anything can happen no matter where you are its about the right time for everything. He got to a quiet place at his grandparents house and started reading.
His grandparents come out and get into an arguement
Asshole she calls him
He leaves before he could hear her. The kid just listens, excuse my French his grandmother says as an acorn cracks the slide he used to play on when he was a little kid. What in the' his grandmother says... She has a mouth in her today the kid thinks he puts his reading off to start painting his grandparents picket fence white.

Before we begin I want to say that we must read in order to find, learn and know our history. Ted Turner once said:
"Lead, follow, or get out of the way".
So with our imagination we must find, and nuture our personhood. We may not think reading is (cool) or popular, but anything being cool is a foolish state of mind.
Only a fool will want to be unwise for his entirety.
Noah once said this about being caught in the storm in other words being made fun of for being wise: tis better to be laughed at and be safe from the storm than to be caught in the storm just because you didn't want to be laughed at.
In conclusion, we must change the world by starting with the mind of our children.
By teaching them to read we are keeping them safe. We can't harbor our children in our homes in hope that we are keeping our children safe. American businessman John Shedd once said "A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.
Thank you again
