A powerful declaration through Sean “Love” Combs’ world of changes has emerged. I listened multiple times to Sean “Love” Combs’ declaration regarding the lack of diversity in The Recording Academy. He spoke not only his conviction, but boldly proclaimed the injustice of the industry towards artists in which he has operated for years. I’m humbled by various voices that have emerged with maturity as they share the scars to unveil the injustice they have endured and commit to creating change for others. Through life and challenges, he shared “the truth” and yet some people of the faith-based community struggle to extend the truth behind a podium labeled as the “sacred desk.” Is it sacred because it holds the truth that would not be proclaimed? Are we afraid to call out societal arrogance and injustice because we dare to tell the ugliness in barter and exchange for favorable circles?

I admire Sean “Love” Combs’ internalized liberty and bold priorities expressed behind the sacred desk of creative artistry. While he was creating music, God was creating his life’s mandate; life’s dual sword. I am regretful that I only experience the admiration and not the manifestation in my own sphere. I no longer wonder why certain dreams and visions have not manifested in my own life. There is great responsibility in certain realms that I can only dream and stand in awe. I realize that perhaps I may never reach that level of influence. I think it’s time to stop hiding behind a sacred desk laced with secrets of the so-called saints. I don’t think it’s working, I think it’s been used to confine the voice of transformation. Until I accept and embody that truth . . . I’ll find myself standing in line and waiting “my time.”
