SORT BY Relevancy
I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don't believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn't want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I'm not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn't know how to return the treatment.
Gayle Howell, known in the poetry world as the “Lady Silk” is an award winning poet, writer and spoken word artist. Silk Elements "A Poets Origin," is a must read for anyone that loves pure poetry.
E Turner on January 12, 2014 at 7:41 pm said: Silk Elements is a look into the life of one’s soul told by very in-depth person (Lady Silk). This book gives you some insite on sex, lies, deception and truth. “Real Love” was defined in a sort of “sadistic” way In a variety of Sonnets read. I was captivated by so many of her pieces…they were all favorites of mine. Reminds me of personal endeavors in my own life. Would love to see this evolve into a short story as told by Silk or a movie. If you haven’t read “SILK ELEMENTS” you are really missing out.

Ending a marriage can not only take a toll on you emotionally, but also physically. Divorce rates are increasing across the world and the reasons range from alcoholism, physical abuse, infidelity, lack of communication, etc. In this day and age of drive-in marriages, quick divorces are no longer shocking. Several marriages end up in divorces. But there are marriages that do face ups and downs and finally make it to the other side. One has to understand, that a marriage is not a packet of instant noodles. You cannot expect it to magically “work”. You have to work on a marriage. So if things go awry in your marriage and you’re considering a divorce, ask yourself why. Go back to the time the problems started and try to understand if there is a pattern. Ask yourself how a divorce can help your current situation. There are several reasons to stay in a marriage and make it work.

This is an excerpt from http://www.advocatesforyouth.org/parents/175?task=view
When talking about sexuality and young people in our culture, we are much more comfortable discussing disasters (teen pregnancy, for example), disease (HIV and other STIs), and dysfunction (coercive sex, etc.). It's much easier for us to talk about what we DON'T want for our kids' sex lives than about what we DO want. In my work with parents, we ultimately get to the hope that kids:
Will appreciate their own bodies
Will express love and intimacy in appropriate ways
Will enjoy sexual feelings without necessarily acting on them
Will practice health prevention, such as regular checkups and breast or testicular self-exams
When they are mature enough to act on their feelings, will talk with a partner about sexual activity before it occurs, including sexual limits (theirs and their partner's), contraceptive and condom use, and the meaning of the relationship and of relationships, in general.
These things are included in the longer list of behaviors of sexually healthy people, compiled by professionals who work in sexuality and human development. The reality is that, as parents, we want our kids to have good sex lives when they grow up—and, sometimes, better sex lives than we have had. The dilemma is finding strategies to support healthy sexual development when there is so little helpful, public discussion about the positive aspects of sexual life.

This is an excerpt from a letter at Prisons' Wives Girlfriends and Partners
Dear Incarcerated (in relationships),
I spend a lot of time counseling women who have committed their lives to standing by you. These women are the very embodiment of unconditional love. I often see many women hurt, mistreated and devastated by partners whose idea of love differs from theirs. You don’t have a choice to do this time, but we do.
Here are a few things you should know:
You should know that we really love you. We love you with two years. We love you with life sentences. Some of us even love you with death. You should know that if a woman is willing to love you at all during a prison sentence, she is someone worth respecting and hanging on to.
You should know it’s not game to ‘play the field’ behind bars. In fact, it’s lame and tacky. Take a look around. You ain’t ballin’. If you are using someone for comfort and commissary under the guise of love and romance, you should know it’s not kind. It takes more strength of character to tell the truth about your intentions. You may be surprised to learn that some are still willing to support you.
You should know life goes on. To demand that she not go out and enjoy the world she is a part of is selfish. There are two lives dealing with this situation. Don’t make her a pseudo prisoner by sentencing her to house arrest. You should know it doesn’t have to be hard time for both for you.

We've all heard stories and told tales about our sexual prowess either now or in the past. Kids these days can't believe Moms was a freak back in the day. We all know Pops was putting in work because that's how he got Moms.

Lucky1227 writes, OK so someone I was talking to was like "oh you should save your virginity for someone you care about guys will respect you more"... I mean why would anyone respect that, just wondering. And like who actually values their virginity? Like to me its not at all a good thing, its a horrible embarrassing sick thing... I WISH I would have had sex at like 15 or 16 my life would be better. So like I don't understand the value in it?
Is viginity still seen as a virtue? These days if you tell someone your a virgin they look at you like your crazy. Most guys aren't looking for Mrs. right, they're looking for Mrs. right now.

We always hear people whining about their babies daddies leaving or never knowing their father. Is it always the mans fault? Or should you have known he was a bad prospect? With all the single Mothers, Grand's and Great Grand's you'd think the younger generation would start heeding the their elders words of advice when it comes to the art of getting hitched.
