Today, I woke from the dead and mourning has ended. Looking at my body lifeless on the bed. I am ready to start again. Giving the spirit to move forward, I am thankful to have a second chance. Leaving behind the pain and seeing that joy is my purpose. Staring in the eyes of the people I Love, I am present. Alive in the facts that I am Loved. Passion leads me through a heartbeat being used to strengthen others. I have survived. So, I smile and find matching smiles….
God has a sense of humor! The pleasure of creating a life, doesn’t always measure the pain of bringing that life into this world. I mean, people talk about the greatest trick the devil has ever pulled, is convincing the world he doesn’t exist. Yet, God’s trick to reproduction is a great pleasure before watching our women go through the worse pain imaginable. And us men are just bystanders. We kissed their lips, danced in between their legs, and came together. Just to be yelled at, pushed away, and made to feel like we are being torn apart. But, when that head emerges and the life we created is rested between us; we contemplate doing it all again. At that moment, all we can do is thank God for all the pain because the joy can’t be measured.
We approach opposite sides of the corner at the same time. Both looking at our phones waiting for the light to change, so we can alternate sides of the sidewalk. The light changes, we raise our heads, and our eyes meet. We both look away, killing the perception of being over zealous. Yet, we both feel the other isn’t interested because we didnt allow our eyes to stay connected long enough to solidify that interest. As we pass, I look back, our eyes meet again. The mutual interest was there but we decided to settle for “until we meet again”….

We were planted together. Our seeds opened at the same time and we merged at the roots. When we came out the ground, we were already one plant. No one would have been able to tell that we were placed in the ground separately. We met at the foundation of our existence. We let eachother in on our past and discovered we still wanted to work toward a future. We debated until we related! We were unafraid to lose because we knew that was the only way we could win. We had no secrets between us. Starting to intertwine, we found Love. There was no longer a you with me or an I without us. We bloomed as one and everyone else are just able to admire us from the surface because only a few would dig deep enough to understand us from the root….
The heart never held us hostage, we are just two people free of all the lack of purpose that hunts so many others. We wake up everyday in one another’s arm with meaning. Fighting for togetherness has bonded more than our union, it has connected families to families, and more hearts to minds. We have started a trend that will multipy for generations that will generate Love across a growing gardening. It started with two seeds because of us the path will be softer….
She writes to me. Telling me I am everything she hoped, I would be, when she dreamt of a man beside her. Yet, she goes back to the obligation of a home that she built when she was youthful enough to believe the world was cold. She married the first person that warmed her heart. Now, we have crossed paths and I play the devil which temps her from honoring a committment under God. I never saw myself the villain but now my beat draws me closer to a woman I can’t never trace. We talk about a life where we can be but that life isn’t ours. It’s just a lust we want to Love….
I am not here to audition for a part in your life. I am not here to prove that I can be a great asset. I am however, letting you know that I will be dedicated, devoted, loyal, and honest in showing you Love. I will show up everyday ready to grow closer together. I know my worth and when I enter someone’s life their existence always increases in value. I study what you need and will provide most of the things you want. I realize that I am interviewing for the most important position in your life and I know I am in a position to enhance our positioning. I am here to merge our worlds, which means my purpose is to assure our lives together have meaning….
