"Better Living Through Chemistry"
Her mind goes up and down, as she’s unable to controlAll of the horrible feelings she feels deep within her soulShe knows her brain is a liar, while it festers and congealsAnd she just wants some modicum of control over the way she feels.
So she tries to escape the void by trying pills of every kindPrescribed different combinations to see what she can findThe right balance is quite tricky, and the side effects are a choreShe still wants to be herself, and not a soulless vacant bore.
Searching through the galaxy to discover what works for herIt can take months to know if it’s working, and the days become a blurIn the empty void for so long, it’s hard to know what feels rightBut she’ll settle for not wanting to tear her face off, each and every night
Hopefully someday soon she’ll be comfortable in her own skin,And until that time comes, she can only try and try again.

Once these two are binded we can not be destroyed! No such thing as helping the African women or supporting the men! Only supporting the African family and culture! We are one in the same!

African spiritual systems predate all religions and all other spiritual systems. It’s not hard to understand this because humanity started in Africa. Many invasions by outsiders, slavery, and colonialism led to the destruction of the African civilizations. 
One thing that is devastating is that Africans are very spiritual people by nature and their conquers would make it a mission to rid them of their native spiritual systems. They would beat, kill, rape, demoralize, and propagate Africans away from their native spiritual forms. 
Today many people believe that systems like “voodoo” are “evil” this is a western interpretation that has plagued the world. Many Africans have actually internalized that their native spiritual systems are inferior to that of the oppressors. Like ALL religions and spiritual systems there is “good voodoo” and “Bad Voodoo” meaning there are good ways to use voodoo and bad ways. Anyone realize The KKK identifies themselves as Christians? They sure do have some “righteous” ways , huh?
Back to my post this propaganda about voodoo plagued the world. Many Africans abandoned their native spiritual systems and adapted their conquerors. Today a lot (not all) of Africans don’t even realize this because they don’t teach the true history in schools just like they don’t in America. A colonial influenced spiritual system is the only one that is accepted.
Interesting fact? The Haitians prayed to the God “Ogun” (God of War) before they defeated the oppressors for their freedom. Ogun is an Orisha from a spiritual system considered “Voodoo” …I guess voodoo (Vodou) can’t be all that bad, huh?

I feel like these 3 questions on employment applications lower African American’s and Latino American’s opportunity to actually land the job they’re applying for. When Peter in Human Resources see the answers to these questions and the answer is “Black or Latino” you just know that the application is headed for the waste bin at that point.
