SHUREE "MANIFESTO" // SPOKEN WORD

Where there is one who will stand up for goodness in the world there are 4000 more. When we join together in doing this we will speed up the coming of a new and beautiful world.
Over the last eight months I battled horrific depression. As a creative person we tend to feel so deeply in our bones the pain we have and the pain of others. The trauma of the world around me, the trauma of my friends, unsure of their citizenship, my community who was mixed with rich and poor, educated and non educated. My city that watched a man die with a forced bullet in his chest with no intellect for arrest. Facebook aired this all live as he consumed his last breaths. I could sense this deep in the cries of the my city, my friends, my community.
The pain went deeper and hit me like a brick when I was told by my "father in the faith" that equality and justice was not a priority in our church. His fearful statements were echoed by some of my fellow co-workers as their racist rhetoric shot bullets into my chest
The sentiments were not subject to one house of worship, but to church's through our land, demanding alignment with a narrative that was deadly.
This was my great awakening.
I was demanded to keep creating spiritual art in an urban setting full of diverse culture and people that severely lacked contextual understanding.
I was told to be kind and not think twice, to accept forced apologies that added further injury.
This led me to see that if I complied, I would be living a lie. Instead, I chose to embrace the world as it is and create ART that give's you my beautiful Patron's an inside look into the hearts and the minds of the Marginilized, the Dreamers, the Justice Fighters and Leaders.
My prayer is that we together can become civilized in the deeper matters at hand.
I pray healing will flow out of the trauma to make strong our beautiful world and become the Church, the people God dreamed of.

Greed Is Good | Spoken Word by Mim Shaik...

This is a spoken word piece taken from the film 'Freehold' - in this piece, Hussein; an oily, amoral estate agent explains the reasons behind his selfish tricks and actions whilst coming to the realisation of what he's doing, and how his position as an Estate Agent (Real-Estate Agent) in the world can be a big problem for society in the long haul.
The line and title 'Greed Is Good' is inspired by Gordon Gekko's classic speech in the movie Wall Street.
Hopefully we can embrace our way to the top, rather than race our way there - Mim Shaikh.

Life is one big learning process,
We all want to figure out new parts of ourselves
we all have these innate passions and desires
but sometimes to discover them, we need a little help
We should all strive to be the best version of ourselves we could possibly be.
Especially at a time where we have access to limitless possibilities.
You have two choices in this life,
You can either fit in, or you can become the person you choose to be.
No one is born perfect.
No one starts out great.
You are the person you choose to be in this life,
You are the person you choose to create.
Work hard to become someone you’re proud of,
I know at first it may feel daunting, like there’s a long way to go,
But it can also be exciting, you get to watch yourself change, progress and grow.
In to who? who knows? Only time will show.
So many people make the mistake of growing up believing they don’t have interests or hobbies
that there’s nothing they’re passionate about
when the truth is most people don’t ever try new things, they don’t take the time to find out.
Growing up I had no interest in poetry and now it’s what I do,
My point is if you don’t give something a chance, you won’t have a clue.
Pick up a skill and try something today, you might discover something about yourself you never even knew.
We are all capable of great things,
Once you unlock your potential you’ll no longer feel the same,
you’ll start growing in confidence, you’ll be running in a different lane.
why would you ever want to limit yourself, why would you ever stop, when you have so much to gain?
Develop skills like how to film movies or learn how to dance,
Don’t know anything about animation, why not give it a chance?
Write incredible stories or learn how to sing,
Life is just too short to ever stick to one thing,
Take every opportunity to work on yourself
and create a life that’s unique and interesting.
There’s always room for personal growth
and we start by understanding ourselves.
Learning to treat our body right and working on our health.
Start training your body as well as your mind,
you need to work on both to get the best out of life.
Don’t spend your whole life waiting for a day where you’ll have it all figured out.
Take the initiative to create it.
We all have potential within us screaming to be let out.
But it takes hard work and commitment to make it.
Take the first step to working on yourself.
And watch as your confidence grows,
When a person focuses on themselves and their worth,
that’s when their true strength shows.
