    If someone wants a membership to your heart
    Don't judge them solely on their appearance, physique, income or education.
    But instead closely consider their level of true accountability.
    Accountability is the amount of treasure someone's able to successfully handle.
    You don't just want someone who is willing to help you;
    You need someone who is able to HANDLE you.
    Can you handle my secrets?
    Can you handle my fears?
    Can you handle my weaknesses?
    Can you handle my success?
    Can you handle my past?
    Can you handle my future?
    Can you handle all that I am and hope to be>
    People may want to help you, but if they can't handle your "STUFF"
    they will eventually become a stumbling block or hindrance.
    If someone says they want to help you carry your bags
    but can't handle the weight of the bags,
    you consider them a hinderance and not a help
    Since you find that they slow down your progress
    Brothers and sisters learn your own set of baggage and
    see who can successfully handle the weight of all that you have inside.
    That will help you better discern who is fit to hold you accountable.
    Don't allow people to get so infatuated with your package
    That they forget to consider what is contained inside.
    Stop settling for less for the best is yet to come
    Wait on the King or Queen that can handle you
    For they are out there waiting on you right now

    Did you know....

    That I love when people uplift others?

    Tell me Sister...did you know that?

    Pease, where do you find the heart?

    It is so remote these days.

    I walk around and everyone llives to curse someone out or lay on the next person.

    Sister, how do you compose your beauty.

    Cherish it sister.

    Because when people talk like this....there is no measure.

    GOD BLESS

    We cannot all handle the same type of weight. What may freak one person out, another person will be able to deal. What you speak of here is absolute truth, we all need someone who can handle us inside out. Brilliantly penned.

    I stand here…applying​

    For membership to your heart
    Head held high
    Pleading for that beginning start

    I have read the minimum requirements
    For the position…of which I apply
    I’m more than proficient at handling secrets
    Concerning my qualifications…I do not lie

    I’ll alleviate your many fears
    Raise you from your weakened state
    Support your rise to prominent fame
    Clean up the past…and offer a clean slate

    I stand here…applying…to be your man
    To give to you, love…and a gentle heart
    I stand accountable for ALL I am
    Offering a DRAMA-FREE life…that’s for my part

    No stumbling-block baggage
    No hindrance to your quest
    Just support for your progress
    Joy…and future happiness

    Review my request.
