I see a man who is misunderstood
I see a man who is assumed to be up to no good
I see a man who has a good heart
I see a man whose heart is regularly ripped apart
I see a man that wants to be loved
I see a man that focuses on heaven above
I see a man whose skin color is assumed to be a threat
I see a man whose own family he may one day come to regret
I see a man who shines bright as a star
I see a man whose life will be way above par
I see a man whose mother is the love of his life
I see a man who one day will find someone like his mother in a wife
Who is this man I see?
It is my son, my life, an extraordinary part of me.
Dedicated with all my love to my son Xavier Floyd who will one day become the man of someone’s dreams. Thank you for being your mother, Mara Prose’s, biggest fan.
