I feel like it’s natural for a man especially being black to feel like he’s a king and he’s lookin’ for his queen. And that’s where I’m at right now. You can’t, be a king until you’ve made yourself, until you’ve done something. And I’ve accomplished my goals, my goals I’ve set out to make me a man. Now I feel like I’m a man, now I set out goals to make me a king. Not a king of anybody else but me, you know? No body else is under my rule but me…and my kids, you-know-what-I-mean? But I made myself into a king, now I need a queen to be happy, so that I can be a teacher and a father. I can’t be that until I find a queen. So I’m stuck in limbo.

“An african is a preserver of nature and humanity; looks to improve the well being of his brothers and sisters while at the expense of nobody. A true african has a philosophy of ubuntu. “How can I be happy when all the others are sad?”. Africa is where life is cradled with nourishment and stability, external forces like to create chaos and de-stability.”
