You don’t know my story
You don’t know my pain
You can’t possibly understand all that I been through
All the opposition that I had to face
Countless nights of crying and suffering
Worrying, questioning, when will this all be over?
Telling myself that it’s just a dream, when it’s my reality
You look at me like this prefect being
My life through the eyes of you look untouched;
no blemish
Look closely and you will see the boldness that I had;
remaining brave when situations in my life warrant me to quit, give up and just die
The confidence in keeping the faith in difficult times
Having the foresight to see the end while I am still searching for my beginning.
You don’t know my story
You don’t know my pain
Through the eyes of you all you see is what I have gained
but make no mistake about it
What I have gained is minor compared to what remains.
The boldness and confidence to preserver through tough times and not be afraid;
that my situation can change and my life won’t remain the same.

Side note this post is not about me. I wrote what I thought courage would sound like. Well lets talk what are some of your interpretations of Courage or have you been through things that you had to show courage in to preserver.

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
