Keith Smith

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy! I am a MAN who calls you beautiful instead of hot. Who measures your intellect. Who calls you back when you hang up on him. Who is supportive not competitive; A man who is strong where you are weak. Who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... Wait for the man who pursues you, who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off when you’re in sweats. Who holds your hand in front of his friends. Who thinks you are the prettiest when you have no makeup on and insists on holding you around the waist. The one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you.... the one who turns to all his friends and says "that's her." I guess im misunderstood cause they... They take my kindness for............WEAKNESS. They take my silence for.............SPEECHLESS. They consider my uniqueness...........STRANGE. They call my language.......................SLANG. They see my confidence as..............CONCEIT. They see my mistakes as...................DEFEAT. They consider my success............ACCIDENTAL. They minimize my intelligence to.......POTENTIAL. My questions mean I am.................UNAWARE. My advancement is somehow..............UNFAIR. To voice concern is.............DISCONTENTMENT. Ifi I stand up for myself I am too......DEFENSIVE. If I don't trust them I am too......APPREHENSIVE. I am defiant if I........................... SEPARATE. I am fake if I.............................ASSIMILATE. My character is constantly.........UNDER ATTACK " Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress...."
