My name is Andre
I am 20 and attend Eastern University
I try to stray from stereotypes of a black young man
i love basketball, and sneakers...
i like art and poetry too, but ballin is my thing
girls who ball and rock kicks get a thumbs up from me

Jeremiah 29:11


i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you’re more than that

I’m so fucking sick of saying I’m sorry when I’m the one collapsed on the ground.
