Texas, It Is Time For Change…

Konscious Kings

In the State of Texas, jail is a big business and the great state loves to lock people up…and for a long time, I might add. Many people that are serving life sentences are first-time offenders. It has been said that young people, especially males, do not reach a full level of maturity until they are at least 25 years old. Look at car insurance companies; the rates are higher until you reach 25, right? Is it possible this is because these young people have more accidents?

A Kweenz Worth

I want to vibe with my Kweenz for a second.  There is a verse from the Bible I want to build with you (all the ladies) on.  It comes from Proverbs 11:22 and it states “As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a lovey woman who lacks discretion”.  I have shared this verse with the young women in my family because it is so profound.  We all know that the swine is looked at as a dirty and filthy animal.  It has no care or regard for anything except for fulfilling it’s own desires.  A ring of gold back then was something of extreme value.  Something to be treasured and respected.  I have witnessed so many lovely women, young and old, who have put their valuable selves in the snout of a man who acts like a swine.  Just like the swine who disrespects that ring of gold, that no-good man will drag you through the mud as well.  He will drag you to the point where your value, self-worth and self-esteem will dramatically decrease, leaving you to the point where you feel worthless and unappreciated.  So Kweenz, if you truly feel that you are as valuable as that ring of gold, don’t attach yourself to a person who you know will not respect, admire or cherish your self-worth.  Have a greater discretion about who you give yourself to because, truthfully, only a King is truly worthy of a Kween.
