Do I think this will save all at risk youth? Absolutely not because in today’s society due to excessive influence from tv, other media outlets, immature adult supervision, peers, & plain bragging azz folks in the streets are far more influential to these youth. I never thought I would admit it but the boob tube, technology, lack of discipline, focus, & a lazy azz mentality society has created a ‘Lost and Turned Out” ERA.
I’ll never forget those lyrics over top that lush arrangement of music:
Olivia the slave
Got distracted on her way
To grandmother’s house
A wolf in nice clothing came
Blew her mind and changed her ways
And now she turned
Lost and turned out
Lost and turned out
Many folks in today’s world are slaves like Olivia and lost and turned out. I rarely come across true individuals like myself. Oh, I’m not saying I am or was a saint because I wasn’t. I did my dirt but understood early that if I were to stand a chance to win in life that being lost, turned out and a follower would wind me six feet under or in jail. And this Eagle, who is I, must fly!
Thursday’s episode of Beyond Scared Straight was focused on the females. Many of these episodes seem to be less entertaining than the ones focused on the boys but no less effective. These females today think possessing a bad attitude & a “know it all” mentality will cloak the fact that they are just insecure little sheep who don’t have the strength to stand on their own two feet and be an individual. But it doesn’t.
I almost fell on the floor laughing at Taylor who kept talking about “they all act & talk tough” yet at the same time she was almost shitting her pants. Or Renee of the 3 Muskateers who said she would puke if she had to pick up the pubic hair, like she had options? Notwithstanding she was trying to act tough bragging about being locked up before. Then CoCo aka Courtney with her messed up piercing saying that she didn’t like to learn because she couldn’t learn. WTF? If she thinks learning is tough going down the road she was going would be tougher. But this is the concoction of stories these foolish youth have bought into. Shoot, many adults have bought into this very same bullshit. We can place blame on this and that but folks need to wake up and learn that in life you are responsible for your life regardless of what place in life you start at. Reminds me of a quote that goes something like this: “At 18, you are what you have been brought up to be but at 30 you are the person you have made yourself to be”! If folks focus on that and less excuses we shall see a better society. What a beautiful world this would be….I digress.
At the end of the day you can’t save someone from themselves. But these programs are there to show them that there are other options. These other options are not as sexy as drugging, thugging, and not doing anything productive but they are options all the same. So we need to use our brains and be the true individuals we should be. Maybe, stepping up is the additive this world needs so as to make a better place.
