The things u write about!!

Throughout my time as a writer, I’ve received some very awesome encouraging comments that always seem to bring a smile to my face. Some of these comments go as far back as 2007, after I went public. I’ve come a long way since then. There are some comments from readers that have become lost with time, but the ones that I’ve still got I cherish dearly.

Thanks to all who comment, read and have grown with me. You readers are really one of the main reasons that I keep growing, so continue with your comments. Let’s grow together, continue being my fertilizer, and I’ll continue bearing food for thought. Thanks you once again.

Finding Within

May 2, 2010

-A perfect connection.

A single teardrop had made it’s way slightly above my cheekbone, down to the very tip of  my nose. It ended up being absorbed back into my skin. I guess there wasn’t enough emotion in it to make it detach and splash upon the floor beneath me.

So many things going through my mind, so many persons my mind fell upon. I felt so deserted. Thunder roared outside while rainfall fell, heaven cried too. I haven’t prayed in so long. Heavenly father I need you, please come rescue me. Many have failed me, I have failed myself, but we all have come short of the glory.

I sent her a message saying that I needed to talk, she said I could call her anytime I needed to. That was about 2 years ago, about 2 years later I took her up on her offer. That night we spoke, her voice was so soothing. I needed those words of assurance, those words of encouragement.

She herself had been through a lot and I myself am going through much, it was a perfect connection. Did I mention her voice was soothing. Her children should know that they’re being loved by an angel. Anyway I just wish things was a little different, at least with family and friends. Then I would be feeling so much better.

When it’s all said and done, I’m still human. Despite how tough I may seem, I too can crumble, we all can crumble. We need each other, we need God, we need ourselves. And in that moment something happened, the rain stopped, there was no more thunder, no more gloom, but most importantly…

A Weight Had Been Lifted.

The Lost Boys

May 1, 2010

It’s a hard knock life, especially if you have no one that is mentoring you or helping you mature into a model citizen. Most times if you mold yourself based on your surroundings, especially if you’ve grown in poverty, then statistics show that the end result won’t be what many view as successful.

Why are we fighting against ourselves? We all can prosper and make it as a people, but perhaps many don’t believe so. I wish I could do something right now, but what really could a pebble do when dropped into the ocean. By the time I can really make an impact, many young men and women will already be lost.

I guess it’s the way of life, the way of the islands, the way of the world. But I wish it wasn’t so, but it is… & until I can actually do something about it, that can be as impactful as a 7 ton boulder when dropped into the ocean, I’ll just have to watch as it unfolds, documented though my words of observation, through my words of reality, but most sadly, through my words of hurt.

What we’re missing more than anything else in society is strong males who mentor and nurture young boys. Mentored young boys grow into model young men, who will in turn play it forward. But un-mentored young men end up dead or in prison, or destructors to a place many see as home. Where are our strong men, and why are they not being mentors to those who need them most?

-When young boys are nurtured correctly, their hearts will never frost, & we would see a drastic drop…
