Just Because…

As a man -as a young african-american man from where I’m from- I’ve overcome a lot of misgivings. I still struggle with a few but one that still puzzles me to this day, is the relationship between a man and a woman. The struggle hasn’t gotten easier with Instagram, Facebook and being a model. However, I have learned that it doesn’t always matter how I feel but rather how I make others feel; respecting their feelings and beliefs.

And I want to let my lady know, that I appreciate you. I say it to you daily, but my actions sometimes overshadows my words. You mean so much to me. And no I’m not in trouble but a lot of times I don’t become desperate to show you affection until I am. I’m not ashamed of the love and appreciation I have for you. You’re special to me. You allow me, even though you may not see it, but you allow me to dream. And you allow me to jump off that cliff to try to fly. Even though you’re there to let me know jumping was foolish in the first place, but I’ve learned you only feel that way because you don’t want to see me crash in the first place.

I don’t know what the future holds for us because we’ve been through so much already. But today, if only for today, I adore you. I cherish you and I love you.


  1. This makes my heart cry & smile at the same time. I am proud of the man your becoming. You have done well thus far. know that a lot of women want an established man but a strong woman will be a part of his struggle, survive it, succeed together and build an empire. Thank God for her. I’m proud of you both!!!!
