I hope it’s been a peaceful and prosperous day. Thanks for showing interest in me. I sit back daily trying to speak new bonds and experiences into existence. I was introduced to the site by a friend of mine and I’m just hoping to share in the same success of meeting beautiful hearted people from all around the world and share our thoughts, views, and just allow our vibes to guide us to whatever is meant for us.
About me: I love sports… espn almost all day lol. Very spiritual, I’m into positive energy and good vives. And I strive daily to be better. I like all genres of music. As long as it tells a story. NBA young boy “snow bunny” is #1 right now lol. Just looking for genuine connections… Something real I fell that one of the best gifts in life is one that is mostly taken for granted and that’s friendship.
Unapologetically imperfect, real… You could be as happy or as sad as you want to be with me. No judgement, just love and understanding. I love to listen. I want to challenge you mentally. Grow with you, experience you. Create memories and a sanctuary for all that our bond entails.
Whatever you feel that may be missing, I wanna be that. If I don’t know how I would love for you to teach me, enjoy your day.

Why does life gotta be this hard? Is pain/suffering our only destiny? This was heavy on my mind as I sat in my cell watching bats pass on the Mississippi River. It could take you almost a lifetime to get something positive going and you could watch it implode in an instant. Could we blame it on past teachings? Yeah, but there is no time to place blame, it feels like we barely got time to grieve. But it’s like how is it no time to grieve when it seems like time is all we have? We’re on a mission to be great. A greater feeling than we ever had in our lifetime. Something beautiful like the northeastern part of Africa. Right on the Mediterranean. It’s a pivotal time in history, we just wanna take our rightful seats at the table. Due to circumstances it’s gonna require hard work. We gotta embrace challenge. Accept that things will be uncomfortable. It’s gonna take change and we can’t change nothing if we don’t change. We’re gonna embrace the love. I know at times it may have felt like it wasn’t in the cards for us… But I’m here to tell you that it is. We’re not gonna continue to allow it to torment us when it’s one of the ultimate goals so, we’re gonna love even when they don’t love us back. Strive tirelessly, strengthen the weak… Remind the world that hard times don’t last and love always prevails…
