    who am i
    am i that fatherless son looking for the guidance and love that will never be
    am i a father whose sons will one day be ashamed to claim me
    am i a boy trying to be a man with no teacher or handbook
    am i that thug on the corner holdin down the block for all my peeps trying to keep it real or something like that
    am i that corporate brother always striving to succeed but still bumping my head on that white ceiling above
    am i a man who is scared to show how much he loves
    am i a soldier in the peoples army fighting for the cause
    am i a follower who is on the bandwagon of any fight just because
    am i a faithful man of god striving to preserve righteuosness
    am i an atheist longing for the flesh and all its vices
    am i a comitted husband torn between two loves
    am i a playa out to get as much as i can before the man takes it all back
    am i a friend wanting to be more but not knowing where to begin
    am i a friend who is never there when you need him
    am i a relative who only calls when i need something
    am i that voice that just wants to be heard then has nothing to say
    am i heart that wants to be healed yet is too scared to say i need help
    am i a soulmate waiting to be found by another who has already been taken
    am i victim of society that will never be understood
    am i a lost soul that has no place and wanders for all eternity
    am i a lost identity waiting for someone to give me one
    am i a weary spirit searching for faith
    can anyone tell me
    who am i.....:confused: :cry: :censored: :help:

    You are just precious!

    You are a gift from God.
    You are the earth we trod.
    You are the tear in my eye.
    You are the bluest skye.
    You are the old made new.
    You are the very best
    You
    are
    U!

    You are who you are. That's a man that knows exactly where he's been, may be a little unsure of what's now or in the future, but a man that's human. You are special, you're unique, you're in search of many things. And as determined as you are...you're going to be fine in your search. Always question yourself, but don't forget to answer those questions. You're AWESOME!!! :) Keep working hard at it baby, you'll be fine.
