I am a faithful young man raise and born in Gods image. I also have a sense of humor to cheer and lift people spirit when they are down. I am a loving person that see the best in someone, but it hurt's when they change in a instant. God filled my heart with patience, to believe anything is possible. He gave me the gift of writing poetry to tell them about God, love, and how special family is. So, when you are all alone, you always need someone to hold on too. I can draw but I don't, so, poetry is my #1 option. KEEP THE FAITH AND SAY-AMEN,AMEN,AMEN,AMEN. Keep believing.
