When a Jun E Kid Grows Up…

In Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts, Uncategorized on August 27, 2013 at 6:23 pm

Just a weird kid wanting a different life.. Wanted to laugh, play and dance in the rain… I enjoyed playing with imaginary friends and creating bubble bath from soap… I sat at that table and was a bus driver… The best damn bus driver on the island. I sat in that living room and became a college and Jun E Caniel Olympic basketball player. But they told me I day dream too much. I never could quite understand their language, so they said that I don’t listen…  After achieving certain feats, my success was turned against me… So now I go from being labeled as the little boy who day dreams to the anti social adult. However still these eyes won’t go past six… You know the age where everything is new and not taken for granted.  You know the age where you get excited about a piece of candy, or just going outside and having a conversation with a friend…

Jun E Lion I realize now it will always be something… I realize there will always be more ants than eagles,  more crabs than lions.  There will be more workers than owners… More managers than leaders. I realize now how you’re treated when you’re a revolutionary… They hate you. They band together against you ’cause they can’t stomach the thought that the same  “unstable” boy who day dreamed  and made friends with notepads will someday… Will someday… will someday …

Boxing for All

In Uncategorized on June 11, 2013 at 4:02 pm

Jun E 4am It’s 4am and I am awake, bobbing and weaving to the piano strokes as if I am Floyd Mayweather…  But I am… We are both boxers, however we box different things… You see, I have trouble sleeping lately knowing there is so much to be done to improve humanity. Yeah, I wish I could give you this feeling, but at times it feels like a curse…It keeps us awake.  It haunts us. It’s hard sleeping knowing that 19,000 kids will die today from preventable diseases and conditions.  This is just on my mind, and I know it probably doesn’t concern you. Please pardon me as I go stand in the ring and prepare to fight…

We box for the people who can’t fight for themselves. We box for the ones with no arms, no sight, or no audible voice. We box for women around the world who are still mistreated. We box for people who want to be freed but are afraid, thinking the box they are given is their only choice…Jun E Gloves We box to spread the message that everyone has greatness inside them!  That piano…With each key stroke it signifies hope, another life saved, mission accomplished…

Will you box with us? Will you fight and live for something beyond yourself?  Will you fight and live for something worth dying for? It doesn’t by any means have to be for the same cause… We challenge you to LIVE and leave SOMETHING worth living for.

The Jun E Misfits

As I look into the eyes of our youth, I see hope, I see people who want to be great. I have discover that no 0ne really wants to be mediocre. I have observed adults that go through the motion and kids act as if they do not care. I realize everyone cares if they are given a reason. Most people are just living, waiting to hear approval from someone close to them. We have to instead teach people to live for themselves and make decisions that will make them happy! Only then will we start to move towards greatness or our Jun E! People are like houses, just waiting to be built up, waiting to find that someone who takes the time to build the foundation. They are waiting for hope, love, discipline, and leaders. The leader is within them, but undiscovered. Shame on us if we don’t find a way to uplift, restore, and empower all the beauty walking the streets. I sit back and see all this talent waiting to be molded like clay, but we seem scared to pick it up, and take it upon ourselves to mold. Instead we watch and judge and say, ” That’s not my clay.” The clay belongs to all of us, but who is strong enough to take it on?

Let’s build teams! Let’s build teams that will allow us to accomplish things and give life to others. Let’s be brave enough to pick up clay and mold it. Let’s  not think about just ourselves, but make sure our fellow man has the same opportunities. Let’s learn to look for talent and not judge people!  Let’s be hero’s, even if it’s  for just one day. They’re waiting for us to step up. If we don’t step up, what do we really expect to change?  To all our youth! … Jun E loves you!
