I brush your head with the palms

A little bit about myself. I come, from a single parent home, and my father died of a drug overdose two weeks before I was born, so it was a challenge for my mother to raise my twin sister and me.

So often we get stuck on a path in life worrying about what others would think of us; would we be cool or uncool if we act or fail to react in a way that our peers deem we should? A situation arises, and we resort to violence to solve it. Some of our friends will say we’re now hard, we put in work, we’re the man… But are these people who we really ought to be trying to impress? Many positive friends and peers are in our communities if we seek them out. There are youth groups, churches, school coaches, big brother/sister programs, and even many brothers of all nationalities behind walls who care about you.
