Baggage Claim

…. but first, my middle name initial stands for Jaye. Over a decade earlier they coined, “money, money, money, money……money!“, yeah, the from the O’Jays.

But it was Tami Terrell whom I’m named under. Even in 1967 it was obvious this was no childhood blunder; that the mountain wasn’t high enough, or tide low enough under.

In 78′, Rose Royce fell onto my soundtrack, when I once wished upon a star, to reach a baggage claim thus far.

I thought it would be money that got me this far. Yet it was just a dream and anxiety; following my heart, planning and accomplishing, money ended up being less exciting to me.

Money is what people feel they need, those with it easily let it bleed. Because the ‘rich’ often don’t pay much in taxes.

The fact is, it’s the reason they increase their quarterly transactions.

But what are my two (2) cents to you, the pot that called the kettle black? Communities before that brought me back. And I’ll go as far as the baggage claim to ensure I’m giving back.

Money is what people feel will expedite them to their dreams. So why is it that those with it say it’s worth less than the Thanksgiving collard greens?

Easier said than done. Once you’re successful you’ll be reiterating the words like I had done. Greed might ever be the secret, but for now just save up and increase it.

What’s forever in the W2? Don’t get offended, I respect it. I just pray you do it for you

The almighty dollar once backed by the quintessential pieces of gold, silver and heavy crowned coin as a scholar. The eagle on the quarter, was freedom during college, because I was able to freely wash my shirts that were collared…

Freedom of choice symbolized on the almighty dollar. The eagle soars high, knowing the people’s misunderstanding, because they work hard, and still pay taxes in the outstanding.

Did the dollars make sense for you? 

But as I once prayed for a W2, I now pray I never rely on signing another or two (2). And if so, it would just be for a select genuine few…

Money can create a belief that if we had more of it, we’d have less grief. But I visited several baggage claims this year, and the promise ends in much grief. Maybe the security is there for you, rewarded by numbers, underestimating what is now your self-blunders.

To the baggage claim rightfully so, often the first captain announces which one to pick up from as the airport operations decides for you, or so? But for some Aviators and airlines, the baggage claim is always theirs and fiduciarily so. 

Money is what people feel make the world go round’. Yet the people coining that term twist and turn; all night long as policies change, and the people eventually learn.

Money is what people want for daily living, monthly travels, business hustles and knowledge muscles…

I then thought synergy.

Mental and physical energy, in one; is more quintessential than the symbolic eagle soaring up high just for fun.
