Forever Queening Presents… Where Is The Love? by The Black Eyed Peas

So yesterday I had a little fun sharing Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow song, but today is a more serious song. Forever Queening Presents…Where is the Love? by The Black Eyed Peas.

With all that is going on in the world, I decided to share Where Is The Love by The Black Eyed Peas.  With the media so readily available at our fingertips, we can open up our phone and see all the devastation that is going on. We have seen so much violence, so much hatred, so much negativity that it’s almost sickening.

Even though it seems like our country is in turmoil, we have got to remember that what we pay attention to, grows. If all you consume everyday is negativity, your mind will soon believe that that’s all our world is. This is not true. There is still good in this world. While it’s good to keep up with what is going on in the world, do not let it consume you and whatever you do, do not allow it to turn into fear. Fear has a crazy way of turning into anger. Fear is the root of all negativity. The violence, the hatred the anger all comes from fear that people possess. Do not fall victim to the enemy. The enemy is not the “bad people”, the enemy is fear.

Now I understand more than ever Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s perspective in how he dealt with racism. Anger and violence never solves anything. He never came with arms blazing, instead he fought peacefully for minority rights. So if you truly want to make a positive difference in our world, posting your anger about it on Facebook or Twitter isn’t going to change anything. You don’t even have to be a social activist. What you do in your daily life makes more of a difference than you think.

We all have a circle of influence.  Your circle of influence are the people you live with, your family members, the people you work with, the people you go to church with, anyone you come into contact with on a daily basis. Remember when I said, what you focus on, grows? This is also true with positivity. Instead of sharing negativity with your circle of influence, share and be a person of positivity. Share love, not hate. You will soon see things change around you. Now you might have push back, there will be negative people you come across, but don’t allow them to steal your joy. Stand your ground, and never give them the satisfaction of allowing them to get your angry.

Okay I am done with the soapbox, I just had to get that off my chest…please enjoy the song of the day. I recommend while watching/listening to it, please scroll down and read the lyrics along with the song.

xoxo, Kay

 

Where is the Love Lyrics

What’s wrong with the world mama
People livin’ like ain’t got no mamas
I think the whole world’s addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that’ll bring the trauma
Over seas, yeah, we tryin’ to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorist here livin’
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods, and the Crips and the KKK

But if you only have love for you own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how this angle works and operates
Man, you got to have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love y’all

People killing, people dying
Children hurt and you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Or would you turn the other cheek
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
These people got me, got me questioning
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love, the love, the love

It just ain’t the same
All ways of change
New days are strange
Is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong
Nations dropping bombs
Chemical gases filling lungs of little ones
With ongoing suffering as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin’ really gone
So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
In this world that we live in
People keep on giving in
Making wrong decisions only visions of the dividend
Not respecting each other
Deny thy brother
A war’s going on, but the reasons undercover
The truth is kept secret
It’s swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where’s the love y’all, c’mon, I don’t know
Where’s the truth y’all, c’mon, I don’t know
Where’s the love y’all

People killing, people dying
Children hurt and you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Or would you turn the other cheek
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
These people got me, got me questioning
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love, the love, the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m getting’ older
Y’all people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin’
Selfishness got us following the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids want to act like what they see in the cinemas
Yo
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love
We spreading animosity
Lack of understanding
Leading us away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feelin’ down
It’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feelin’ under
Got to keep my faith alive ’til love is found

People killing, people dying
Children hurt and you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Or would you turn the other cheek
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
These people got me, got me questioning
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love, the love, the love
