‎"I shoulda listened when they spoke those between the lines and seen the truth in the lies... so now ima ride this wave even if it be the death of me...let the vultures feed until there's nothin left of me my heart on my sleeve expect nothin less from me." By Unique

‎"Love is like can't expect everyone to CALL, some will only CHECK but most will choose to FOLD without even trying" By Unique

5 seconds I knew u were special/After 5 minutes I knew u were 1 of a
kind/After 5 hours all I could do is imagine n wonder how after 5 days
this could have eva of happen/After 5 months it was a wrap I was
sold/Realizing wat I found was more precious than gold/It was a yr
and some change b4 we took those vows/And
5 months after I still feel like WOW!...." By Unique

‎"I'm boycottin Valentines, I don't need a DAY... to tell my lady that she's mine, how much I need her and that she's on my mind. EVERYDAY I try to show her love, doing little things...just because.

A yr ago 2morrow I said "I DO",
"I DO" to all the things known and unknown,
"I DO" to the expected and even the unexpected,
"I DO" to a lifelong commitment to loving her, giving her my very best...and even then I reach deeper for the rest.
"I DO" to every situation, unconditionally the words resonated through me, fearful that my best would be less than she deserved, I stood tall and just let them fall...." By Unique

‎"I used to wear pain like a badge
I carried hurt like luggage
With my eyez wide shut
I thought I saw the truth but it wasn't
Nothin but lies in that fairytale, lost in that mental jail
I broke free, spread my i see very well."
By Unique

“Mental weakness is a form of slavery, bound and shackled, vulnerable to the controlling force of its master…laughter is disengaged when the seriousness is realized, and foolishly we rationalize the truth and the lies… in hope to keep alive that weakness…that sickness..‎Mental strength is how we become empowered to combat these vices…these habits…it’s the things we really want to walk away from but we reach back and grab it. It doesn't matter how long or short the list, some people are oblivious and don’t even know their…..Mental Weakness” By Unique.

‎"For every father who has failed to answer the call I can give you a mother who has also dropped the ball. So lets take a moment to recognize the MEN holding it down, doing their best without a script, without wavering....not even a little bit" By Unique

‎"Being a father isn't about being perfect, it's about staying the course, caring enough to sacrifice the short term for the benefits of the long term to release to the world a better extension of you." By Unique

How many of us have them?  Today true friendship is hard to come by.  I see my kids and I feel sorry for them that they may not experience the friendships that I have in my life.  A true friend isn't bound to a certain city or state, organization or church group but they extends beyond the barriers of life itself and into eternity. True friendship can't be confined to social network sites like facebook, in which some people have upwards of 500 friends. A real friend has no agenda, there friendship isn't conditional on what you're able to do for them.  The friendship is about the laughter shared, the support given and ability to keep it real at all times.  They tell each other the truth and not what they want to hear but they do it in a way that is sensitive to their situation.  At the end of the day there is a thin line between true friendship and family, and they are often one in the same.  A true friend is blessing that we should never take for granted and count ourselves fortunate that if nothing else we have at least......ONE.  By Unique

In The Mind Of A Man

Lost in the mind of a man with a dream
No one knows the things I've seen
The things I've heard or the things I've shared
But maybe one day when I find my way
The things I will say...will be the things I've learned
While......In the mind of a man.  By Unique

Taking the time......

to appreciate the little things.  Every now and again, when I stand still enough to take in all the beauty that's around me, I get an overwhelming appreciation for all that I have.  Unfortunately life tends to be a race and the destination is never really the finish line.  I love being busy, and with our family there is plenty to keep us that way but it scares me when the state of being busy clouds my mind, alters my mood or maybe a hint of stress that not even I am aware of..  So I find myself wanting to take life in stride, not slowing down but appreciating things more along the way.  I think in some ways being in a mindset of being busy all the time is the devils ways of distracting us, keeping us from what's really important in life such as our Spiritual, Mental, Physical and Emotional health.  It's so easy to be consumed by the negative that surrounds us.  It is harder to be a LIGHT that shines positive in the midst of a downward spiraling world
