love is an eternal light that chases the darkness of fear to hell
I realize that it may be uncomfortable for some when Black People express their pride in their culture. This obviously is because of the history this country has built its foundation on.
Our Blackness should not be met with your defensiveness
Our culture is pride, unity, self – determination, and resilience we are
a peaceful people…a faithful people…a chosen people
We are a PEOPLE who forgives
We are a PEOPLE who loves
-with our whole heart –
I imagine love
to be an eternal relationship
expressed in infinite ways like
when a king
is blessed with the presence of his queen
his heart rate races in his chest
he takes deep breathes
his speech suggest worship his body language
“Hey, how was your day?”

Your hard work and preparation was prudent and often pays off, however you would be wise to remember that all increase comes from above.
It is God who made your hope whole
Your faith was made real by the All Mighty not your talent, and hard work alone.
Your experience is so unique that your voice is the antidote to the cancer killing the esteem of a young lady suffering from some abuse that she keeps buried deep and far from the judging eyes of the world.
Your life is the LIGHT that will inspire like a star in the dark nights of some young man struggling through a secret crisis.
