I am hopelessly devoted to love, in all its forms. I am a lover, not a fighter. And I have the upmost desire to not participate in the hurting of others.... But somehow I keep hurting, seemingly at the expense of not hurting others. Or maybe I just need to accept that certain people will never change. One must have compassion for others. I have compassion for all but especially those who hide behind their insecurities and fears. I have compassion, I have compassion...
I dont think the statement "fight for love" is the right choice of words, maybe "never give up on" or "keep standing up for"..but fighting should not be apart of love. Fight means battle, struggle or angry argument. I dont want anything to do with all that. I want to love, to love endlessly; relish in faithfullness and devotion. I want that all or nothing love. Not the "cant live without" love but the type of love that doesnt know anything else. That moment you meet someone and your life will never be the same kinda love. That kinda love that makes your heart skip a beat and the world around you disappears kinda love. The kind of love that makes a man tell all his friends hes found the one kinda love. That love that no matter what happens you know youre gonna get through.
Is it better to go through life not being hurt but not loving.. or is it better to feel both the pain and the love? Atleast that way you know youre alive. I feel pain inflicted by others cruel intentions all the time. I feel the pain of people who are going through things, when it doesnt even have anything to do with me. I dont choose to feel, I just do. In my head I question what it all means but in my heart I know that I would never trade my sensitivity and compassion for a cold heart. It hurts me just thinking about hurting someone. I dont overstand at all how people hurt people..
This brings us to our final topic in relation to love and pain. The dreaded day women all over the world feel inadequate if they are without a lover. The day men get anxiety attacks and stores make the quota for the rest of the year. Some call this day "Singles Awareness Day" which makes sense, becuase if youre single you defintly become aware this time of the year. Just because you are single though, does not mean that noone wants you, it simply means you havent found the right person yet. There is nothing depressing about this. Learn to love yourself everyday of your life and loving others will come easy. Do "you" the best you can and eventually someone will come along and want to turn that you into "us".... thats real talk.
Just have faith and feel the love around you even if noones there...
Embrace being alone and never allow love to get you down.
Rather than falling, choose to STAND IN LOVE FOR ALL ETERNITY.
thats where im headed.

RIP DOLLA Born Roderick Anthony Burton II, 21 from Atlanta was shot in the head as he and several other people stood near the center's La Cienega Boulevard entrance of the Beverly Center in L.A. Although its not in the police report the shooting is assumed to be gang-related. After the shooting, Burton was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center a few blocks from the mall, where he died. Burton was an up-and-coming rapper who had recorded several singles. He was in town to work on his first album, slated to be released this summer on Jive Records. Although mixed up in some negativity, this man was very young and talented and his heart was good. The gun violence must stop. Guns dont kill people, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE. STOP the violence and spread the love.
This clip from Rap City is one of my favorites, when I first heard this he had already died and I was heartborken at the worlds loss of this beautiful mind and spirit.
Rest In Peace November 25, 1987 – May 18, 2009

Our hotel was right downtown Ocho Rios, so downtown that we had locals sittin by our pool at night lol... slightly frightening at times but mostly very entertaining. It was a very humbling experience. One of the highlights of our many meals, was a trip to "Evita's" for dinner. The place was so beautiful and the service was intensly excellent. While we waited for our exquisitly cooked meal, we browsed the many frames on the walls containing photos of all sorts of celebrities (from LL Cool J to the Rolling Stones). The service was so excellent we had to tip our waiter 50% of the bill because the service was really THAT excellent lol... He basically waited on us hand and foot while we sat overlooking the most beautiful nighttime view I have ever seen in my life.
