I’m Just…

I’m just a man that wants to be loved.

I’m just a man who wants to love whole heartedly.

I’m just a man who wants to make all my love ones proud.

I’m just a man who thrives to one day be a great father and beyond legendary husband.

I’m just a man like the other 3,477,829,638 men on this planet.

I’m just a man like the 12 men that has landed on the moon.

I’m just a man who at one time was a boy, just a young child with dreams.

Dreams to change the world.

To make people smile.

To make people heal from pain.

I’m just a man who sometimes can be found up shits creek without a paddle.

I’m just

I’m just sometimes lost in my mind and use my words to create a light in the darkness of my mind.

I’m just a man who… A man who gives it my all.

Even if it’s not perfect, I know that the man that I just am gave it my all.

I’m just a man who learned patience.

Learned to hear God voice through silence.

Learned that the more I sacrifice for the great good the more blessings He would bring to my life.

I’m just a man.

But more so than that.

I’m still that boy.

A fearless dreamer.

A fealess lover.

  1. I love how you humanized your masculinity. And definitely loved the use of the strike-through with the word “just” – because there is definitely nothing “just” about being a man. Especially a black one. Excellent piece King 🙂
