Despite my location, I’m still a King! I haven’t forgotten my worth, if anything by God’s grace my self-worth has only elevated physically, spiritually & intellectually I’ve only gotten stronger & wiser. My situation is only temporary, it does not define me. I’m not a prisoner, I am a very free man. I am a confident, intelligent proud black man. I am not perfect: I’ve made plenty mistakes, but I can say today what didn’t kill me only made me stronger. I’m a 36 year-old from Houston, Texas. I have a good sense of humor, I love to have a good time. I also enjoy intellectual conversations, I love to read & learn new things. I’m also a leader at heart & a man of faith & also a prayer warrior. I write music, spoken word, and poetry. I am in the process of writing my first book now. I love to cook, listen to music, travel & celebrate life to the fullest. I’m in search for some good loyal friends, kind-hearted, genuine people who like to write & have time & interest for meeting someone new who doesn’t mind giving a good guy a chance, encouragement, support & just who doesn’t mind building a friendship. I truly do know the value of time! So you can trust I won’t waste yours. I’m not in a relationship & am very open to meeting a good woman who I can get to know & who is genuinely willing to get to know me. I also believe in platonic friendship, I have the patience & self-control to just genuinely be a friend with no expectations. I have no games, no gimmicks, genuinely seeking to connect & build, only time will tell the rest. I believe beauty is beyond what’s on the surface but a man must have discipline & be seeking to establish something greater than the physical to discover the treasure a good woman hold within. I’m also seeking mentors looking to share good information, life lessons & or take an interest in someone who is very interested in building his own brand & business. I’m thrilled to learn & haven’t allowed being incarcerated to stop me from growing & educating myself. I’m looking forward to a bright future. I have a testimony & ministry in front of me. I truly appreciate your time and I look forward to building; be blessed.

My Struggle Had A Purpose

God was in it
Like the stroke of a paint brush
on the sky’s canvas
He paints the day. He is my potter
I am His clay.

Like a butterfly emerging from ashes;
I discard the shells of my cocoon.
I’m beautiful, even after life’s wounds.
Many scars & gashes, as time passes.

I was purged by fire & strengthened by trials.
In my wilderness of parched places
Searching for streams of life
Facing my darkest nights.

Out of a deep sleep, I was awaken by trumpets
Calling out the sunrise,
To the dawn of a new life.

I know, I was held by a hand,
Though I couldn’t see a face.
Behold the Glory
His Grace!

I’ve been preserved for a reason,
Bearing fruit in due season.
I see now
My struggle had its purpose.
In the end, it was worth it.

Although, there were times
I found myself petrified
LORD, I surrender to Your will
In me be “Ye” Glorified!
My struggle had a purpose!
