HAPPY BIRTHDAY


Tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri ….. , tanti auguri a te …. Swoosh.”

Today is my birthday. I wont say how old I am this time,but be gentle on the comments and well wishes guys.

In the past wherever I have been and whatever I did my life was like being close to a mirror. Still I say. Image is Everything.I always thought that this observation would thrill all those people who believe or who would want to believe that my complex and controversial innerself is not a golden child but merely and Incubus spawned for the next generation of mall rats. But then there are those few seconds when all the crud in the world and that phoniness is behind you and there comes a time when you have to be totaly honest with yourself. You have to assume personal responsibility for your life because in the end nobody else can see you in that mirror.You can only see yourself.I often think to myself like what has made me tick throughout my life. And at the end of the day finding Inner Joy is what its all about.
In my life I often get caught up in the warp and weft of reality to believe outrageous and provocative catchphrases which is exactly why i mouth things so insouciantly.Nevertherless it has made me the bomb in my crusade to expose me as who I am. Courage is an attribute that is someones best and courage is not the absence of fear but the ability to face the fear and overcome it.
In the end though the fear that I might live with regret is just scary and people are the type that they can let it snowball inside them. Life is a gamble, I have no regrets.You win some and you lose some. It is the comparison between the joy of winning and the fear of losing. Now that is the true aphrodisiac of a gambler.Its about being capable of going out there and being what you want to be,which is 100% dedicated and willing to pay the price and do whatever it takes to WIN.
I guess now people will feel that there is an element of poetic justice in my identity. People may have their theories and opinions that may contain truth & falsity.And it may even explain the extra-ordinary that is characterised by me.
In the end though I have a natural instinct to stand by the people that stood for me. People ask my Why do you do it Swoosh.What are you some kind of Adrenalin junkie or something. I wont say a damn thing. You wanna know why .Its about the people next to you and THATS THAT.THATS ALL IT IS. To conclude though there is definately a Dichotomy between what I project in Life. I have indeed thought about it long and hard. As a person I am simple and low key.

I am who i am.I am Swoosh
Heroes are remembered but Legend never die

AND SO TO MY CREW WHO HAVE STOOD BY ME,TO ALL THE READERS OF THE BLOG THAT STOOD BY ME AND SUPPORTED ME ALL THE WAY, AND TO THE BABES OF POETRY IN MOTION FOR THEIR SUPPORT AND WELL WISHES THE FOLLOWING BELOW IS FOR YOU

“I dont know what to say, the biggest day in our professional lives all comes to us one day. A special day I say
In life we kneel as a unit or we going to crumble. inch by inch, play by play. We in Hell right now.Thats life!
. The passion and the spirits of the past will be inside me again.It will be just like that incredible night in 1997 in Pizza Hut. They will be flags, banners,costumes, scarves, a deafening cauldron of noise, Main Stands, All rows singing for the boys
Now theres two things ,We can stay here and get the shiT$ kicked out of us or we can fight into the night. We can climb out , one inch at a time.

You know when you get old in life,things get taken from you , I mean its part of life, But you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out life is this game of inches.
The occasion really gets to me, You know you get older every year. We can buy time and little designer gifts, But we cant by atmosphere.

People will say to calm their nerves. Giving you a few pointers, But then we have to cross that white line to the most exhillerating day & night of our lives

In life , the margin for error is so small, I mean one half a step to late or too early, and you dont quite make it, one half a second too slow or too fast and you dont quite catch it.The inches we need are in every break of the game, Every second every minute. In my crew we fought for that inch. In my crew we tear ourselves and everyone around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch.Because we know when we add up all those inches thats going to make the most difference between winning and losing. In any fight its the guy thats willing to lose that inch. Ands I know if Im going to have any life any more its because Im willing to fight and die for that inch. Now I cant make you do it. You gotta look at the guy next to you. Look into his eyes, U gonna see a guy who is willing to die, who will sacrifice himself for the owes because he knows you will do the same for him. Thats a unit gentleman and either we yield now as a unit or we will die as individuals. Thats Life guys . Thats all it is
So this is it , the day has come and all roads lead to this special day. We can still do it with fire with passion, with belief. We can do this together because we fought to this day,Today we going to make history. Together in hope ,in dreams, together we stand shoulder to shoulder because together we can make our dreams come true “

To my crew that we fought over the years. We encountered thrills and spills, happiness and disapointment. We went where religeon,or the color of your skin didnt matter. We watched over the back of the next man as he would watch over yours. We were always the first to set foot on the battlefield and the last to leave.And we never ever left anyone behind.THANK YOU FOR THAT

    Congrats Swoosh

    Did you know that today is also the 30th death anniversary of Elvis “the King”

    I guess that this world was not big enough for the both of you.

    One legend had to exit for another legend to enter.

    Wish you all the best.
    Have a great one.

    Now that was an Elite Unit. Green Berets. Inserted where no one dares to go, They only send in Special Ops Units like the Berets for akward and hot situations.

    Its where you develop the Thousand Yard Stare, and where Wingmen hail.

    Happy Birthday Strobson my Boy

    You not only looking old these days, you also remind me of an alphabet which I wont mention on your birthday

    Have a good one and remember that being you is what makes everything so exciting.

    Come on what would we do without the Great Naseem Mayet.

    31 years and still going.

    You know you reaching even higher levels because these days you remind me of a man in CAPITAL where all the women want you to get them on the other side

    I’s all bout being a marine and you have served the marines with honour. Just make sure you carry that flag high and don’t get caught up in being a Minister of any sort.

    Happy Birthday and please make sure you do all the things I expect you to be doing

    Make sure you always have one on behalf of me

    XXXXXXXX

    Happy Birthday Strobson…

    I’ve seen trophies, but none can compare to the collection of the great strobson. Truely a marine that has stood by his fellow men and sometimes had to be draged out of combat but never left a marine behind.

    NJOY and may u see many, many more…
