Just another day feeling like I feel...

I don't think I've ever really fit in anywhere. Earlier in my life, people simply accepted me because I was smart and well-mannered. But now, I feel that I'm not really the type of person that fits in anywhere, other than in my own world which is barren and devoid of anything good.

I sit at home, watching other people develop their friendships and relationships and I wonder what's wrong with me that I don't have these same experiences.  I watch people go to and from work and I wonder what's wrong with me that I can't use my skills or experience to make myself a living.  I watch people talk about how much fun they had with their friends and family, and I wonder what's wrong with me that none of my friends and family even want to be bothered with me.

I know folk who love me will say that what I'm feeling is not true, but I also know they'll lie to me in order to save my feelings, so I can't take what they say as fact.  What I do know is that I…

Education vs. Incarceration

"Broken Promises"

The father tells his son, "I PROMISE you'll see me tomorrow." The father does not show up. The son's heart is filled with sorrow.
The son's heart is deeply broken. That trust can't be replaced. The son will never.... ever  Want to see his father's face.
The son will soon learn to hate the man To which "Daddy" was his name. Every time the man shows his face The son feels nothing but shame.

"Honor thy mother and father" Should be something simple to do. But don't you think that fathers Should have to honor their sons too?

Fathers should take time out And spend it with their boys. The should take them to football games, Not argue, fight and make noise.

A boy shouldn't have to face Becoming a man all on his own. He should have someone to go to Or talk to on the phone.

He shouldn't have to wonder About what he's going through. He shouldn't have to sit and think About who he can talk to.

A son needs a father Someone there at all times He needs someone…

31!

Today is my 31st birthday.  And even though I felt that I wasn't going to welcome it as I have others ages along my journey, but the truth is I'm very happy. I'm happy to know that there are people out there who love me enough to remember and send me well wishes on today.  I'm happy to know that I haven't spent my whole life doing nothing, or wasting time. I might not be where I thought I'd be at this time when I was a kid, but I'm definitely not doing too bad either.  There are some things that I can improve on, but I think that anyone who lives another day, could say the same about themselves and their lives.  Things might not be perfect right now, but I have so much to live for and to look forward to.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank God for showing me His grace and mercy in allowing me to see this day.  There could have been so many situations and so many times where my life could have been lost, but I'm here.  There could have been so man…
