~ A Note from"DB"~
I told y'all Facebook a few weeks ago, don't be surprised if you hear that I'm, living my life as a man of God. As of tonight and here on after , I'm walking as a man of God, and will not live my life another day in sin. I pray that everybody else find their way before it's too late! These streets ain't worth nobody losing their lives over them. Whether it be death or prison, it's not worth it trust me. 
Ladies first, so to my ladies don't throw your life away behind partying and chasing dudes that are not about treating you like the queen you are and ain't nobody perfect but God, and His Word, and same thing to the men, don't throw your life away neither. God Bless, God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, this is the Trinity. Greater is He that is within me than he that is in the world. 

God stay with Darryl; Darryl stay with God
