i loved hard.
and i loved good.

you know a relationship was great when you can look back and know.. that was the best thing in my life. and smile. and then walk forward into something new.
not that i stopped loving you.
not that i ever will.
but we're going forward and living life to the fullest.

i have no regrets.

if you can't handle me at my worst
you don't deserve me at my best

"I called you bitter cause now every man you meet is gonna have to pay for what he did"
"and im not bitter.. i'm mad as hell"

"I used to believe in fairy tales.. I don't anymore"

"It's so easy to say no out of fear. For once take the hard road and say yes"

"anytime you wanna give into that fear you let our love outweigh it"

i know you dont believe in fairy tales. but if you did i'd want to be your knight in shinning armor. youve been through so much. i dont wanna see you hurt anymore. and i may not be able to give you all that youre used to but i know that i can love you past all your pain i dont want you to worry about anything just wake up in the morning and i'll take it from there. theres one condition, you have to be my wife.

"this is for every black woman thats ever had a problem with a black man"

i gave you life even though you took it from me. i wanted children and had you not been with those whores we would have them. you got me all stressed out my hair fallin out my weight up and down cant keep anything down two miscarriages. you took like from me and you never even said im sorry. i'm gonna let you sit here for a few days and let you think about what i've said.

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

"If I win, I am American not black American. but if i did something bad, then they would say I am a Negro. We are black and we are proud of being black. Black American will understand what we did tonight"

"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us" Romans 8:18

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love & of self-discipline" 2 Timothy 1:7

So it's not gonna be easy, it's gonna be really hard. We're gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day.

Do not undermine your worth by
Comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
That each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what
Other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Do not take for granted the things
Closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them, life is meaningless.
Do not let your life slip through your fingers
By living in the past nor for the future.

By living your life one day at a time,
You live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you
Still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the
Moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that
Binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
That we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life by
Saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive
Love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
Is too hold it too tightly;

In addition, the best way to keep
Love is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams
Is to be without hope;
To be without hope
Is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life
So fast that you forget
Not only where you have been,
But also where you are going.
Life is not a race,
But a journey to be savored
Each step of the way.

sooo... looks like i might be interning in ethiopia... dont know how i feel about that...
its not kazakstan... hahah. but i guess. its all for the best.

wrong intentions [28 Dec 2006|10:36pm]
my mother told me i will never feel like i belong here.
i have some similarities but too many differences.
she said thats why my relationships with people are awkward.

i guess shes right. even when i thing things are on the verge of being perfect.. here we are again. that same place.

i need school to be back. i need the encm kids to tell me im making the right decisions. i need someone to understand.

i was so excited for this semester.. now im kinda scared.
but its all in Gods hands.

im so glad this semester is ending (i just have to get through that stupid lit exam tomorrow). im so ready to move on. with everything.
jerre's good for me. he's teaching me what i didnt understand about myself. and how i deal with people.
i think lauren donaldson has to be the most caring amazing beautiful person in the world.
i love it!!! Break is gonna be soooo great. it'll be like old times again, righttt?!!
take the good from the past and move on into the future.
NOTE: i need to do my caldwells schol. stuff.

TRACK IS AMAZING. i loveee being a college athlete. it makes life so much better. between that and ENCM im pretty set. i love being a part of something. it makes everything not seem so bad.

the only people you need in your life are the ones that need you in yours.* good one mig.

always forgive but neverforget
learn from your mistakes
*but never regret
people change, and things go wrong
but always remember
life goes on

“If we're all saying that rap is an artform then we gotta be more responsible for our lyrics. If you see everybody dying because of what you're saying, it don't matter that you didn't make them die, it just matters that you didn't save them.”

[07 Dec 2006|01:05pm]
Lord, the more i seek you, the more i find you
the more i find you, the more i love you
I want to sit at your feet
drink from the cup in your hand
lay back against you and breathe
feel your heartbeat
this love is so deep, its more than I can stand
i melt in your peace, its overwhelming

usc proj quote. [06 Dec 2006|06:05pm]
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.

Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

thank you baby [04 Dec 2006|11:32pm]
