Michael Jackson

People say all this time that they grew up listening to Michael Jackson. I can remember spending countless hours in my uncle's room at my grandmother's as a child listening to, singing along with, and attempting to dance just like Michael. I was four years old when the Off The Wall album was released and there was always something about his music from beginning to end that always inspired me. He was an entertainer completely and thoroughly. Some of his music made you laugh, some made you cry, then there were those songs that made you sit up, stand up, pay attention, take a deeper look at yourself and try to do better. No matter what he did, you could always feel it. It was always sad to me how the media repeatedly tried to bring him down over the years. I'm still saddened and shock by the loss of this man, a worldwide icon, and will be sure to share his work with my nieces and nephews, and someday, my own kids. He was truly, the greatest of all time. He will continue to inspire and influence individuals all over but, there will never be anyone else like him.

Randomness IV

i've been staring into your eyes for what seems to have been an stomach is doing jumping jacks, cutting flips, the whole nine because of the anticipation of what's about to happen. As i lean closer towards you in an attempt to steal our first kiss I realize that, this could be it..the moment that God has trained me for, the moment that I finally receive my queen...As our lips get within a centimeter's reach from each other, I can feel electricity pulsating throughout me that moment I...and then you...and then with eyes closed...I feel your kiss forehead...

Randomness III

for many years, as I've walked life's path, there have only been two sets of footprints accounted for. it seems strange now that as i look back, i see three sets and i look to my side and see you there. i can't help but smile knowing what that God has brought me full circle by blessing you with me. i now pray that our footprints are never washed away as we leave our imprint on the world...

Randomness II

-our paths have crossed once again but, i can't be as enthusiastic as the first time simply because the last time ended on such a low note. is this supposed to be a new beginning or a reminder of where not to go on my next time out. i truly miss the high notes we used to hit together but i'm afraid that if i try you again, those notes will only be falsetto. how long would we be fooling ourselves this time around? i love you, but i love myself enough to not willingly bring pain into my existence once again...

-Don Savant


Your voice is so sweet it's like music to my ears, making me with I had you in my headphones at all divine as I climb to the top of your favorite persons list..I wish..I could wrap you up an seal it with a kiss. MUAH!!

Happy Father's Day!!!

Father's Day
Just because you're a daddy, doesn't mean you deserve the honor that is Father's Day. That's something that must be earned through your actions. There are good men out there that aren't taking responsibility for what they've helped create. On the other hand, there are those that aren't given the credit that they deserve, or are afraid to let it be know that they are doing the right thing because of who they surround themselves with. A lot of people think that daddy and father are one and the same. That couldn't be further from the truth. Daddies are cool to have, especially when they are around but, a father is that man, that pure definition of what a male with children, whether they are paternal or not, is supposed to be.
A father supports his children without being forced to. He doesn't do what he does because Family Court says so, he does it because his heart is in it completely and he wants to make a difference in the life of the children that he's responsible for. Being a father doesn't start or stop with monetary support. He supports his children morally, mentally, and in any other way that he can. he's there in some capacity each time that he's needed to be, and can be depended upon no matter what arises. He's that kind shoulder to lean on, and that stern and heavy hand when you've done wrong.
A father would never stand for being called a baby's daddy. There are far too many males in this world that accept that terms as normal. It doesn't matter if you're a young man, an old man, or in between, you need to stand up and claim your true title. Especially the young ones that have so much negative influence around them. It's time to step up and be the man that your daddies may not have been. Give your child a reason to be proud of who helped bring them into this world or who was their guide in this life. be a positive role model to those that look up to you as a father figure. Take that child under your wing and help them grow to be the men and women that others look up to and allow them to proudly proclaim, "My father taught me that!!!" Don't allow whoever is surrounding you influence you in ways that may be detrimental to your seeds. Don't be what society expects you to be simply because it's considered the norm. Go against the grain and regain your individuality. You don't have to be perfect, just be there enough to show that you want to be there. Try to always be and stand for and accomplish more than what anyone including yourself thought you could ever be. Give the real people, your true supporters, your loved ones, a valid reason to look at you and say...
Happy Father's Day!!!

Summer Is Almost Here!!!

I know it's already hot outside and the flip flops and sandals, short shorts and skirts have already come out but there's still a few more weeks before summer is official. Summer is my favorite season because it's gives more freedom in a sense than the other three season do. You have cookouts, swimming pools, trips to the park, the beach. There are so many more activities that you can do during those few months. The only real bad thing is the heat but, you can always find ways to cool off, which adds to your list of activities. I can't wait to go on vacation next month, not because I'm going somewhere but because it will be seven wonder-filled days away from work. If y'all get out and have some fun this summer, make sure you be careful and watch out for others just as much as you watch out for yourself. Y'all be blessed.
