thisafricanguy Life (def.) - a moment in time. I don't know how this saved to my phone but I'm happy to have a chance to share the video. I used to battle the man in the video, tooth and nail because of the weekly calls we were forced to go to, one day he looked at me and said, "I think they need to rethink this too but while we're here let's just have fun." As you can hear by my laughter... We had fun that morning. This was the last time I saw Ed and this is a memory that I thought was lost until technology brought it back to life, somehow. Don't forget to laugh, tell someone you love them, and most importantly try not to sweat the small stuff in life. I miss this player, he was a fun, guy who was snatched from us too soon. #LiveLoveLaugh "He's out there and one do soon, I'll find you..." #RIPPrimo 2d

thisafricanguy I'm thinking about that girl who told me once that I'd never make it; it's crazy how that's all I've been doing. I'm thinking of that former boss who told me "This job isn't the place for you." Thank you for allowing me to start an amazing life journey. I'm thinking of the group of folks who recently told me I wasn't good enough; let's see if I can turn a good thing, into greater thing. I'm looking at the kid, behind the man in this pic. Cocaine biceps, steroid mind... "I'm out here, come find me." #NeverGiveUp #StriveForGreatness #ReflectOften #LiberianDreamer #GBCCrew #Blessed 3d
  •   thisafricanguy @tjover5 - See, this is why you've always been held in such high regard! The journeys shall be enjoyed and televised. 3d
  •   thisafricanguy @lizziedays - indeed, indeed... 3d
  •   arw327 I'm not exactly sure what you do my friend, but your quotes and pictures let me know you're good at it and you enjoy it! What more could you ask for, right? Thanks for the #inspiration man! Helps me keep it pushin! 2d
  •   thisafricanguy @arw327 - I create stories, I attempt to touch hearts, minds, and eyes. Who cares if you have 2.7 million followers... How many lives are touched and how do you interact. The moment I become "too big" for the system, a system is the very moment said system will no longer be. What I do is a mystery to a lot of folks and it's also a mystery to me. Thank you brother, I hope to continue to inspire. 2d
  •   arw327 Respect! 2d
  •   thisafricanguy @arw327 - nothing but, fam 2d
  •   thisafricanguy @alaverbclothing - who just picked up some gear from y'all, today? 2d

thisafricanguy Today is my uncle's birthday. He was one of the very few men who opened my eyes to the world around me. He was the uncle who lived in England and who always said, "Come stay with your uncle, I'll take care of you." When I did take that skip across the pond, he did exactly what he had stated he would do for me. Life is cruel and I miss you so much, thank you for taking care of me from above, unc. I'm attempting to get as many stamps in my passport as I can and all due to you. #myhero #visionary #loved #liberianking #myace #missyou 4d

thisafricanguy Ya Basta... "You don't understand my words but still you must choose, come, choose life or death." IF you want to war, we can; I hope enough is enough with all of this bullshit. Life isn't black and white... 5d

thisafricanguy It's rare to catch a glimpse of this guy goofing around, on camera, however, think I told him I was the guest singer at my cousin's wedding in Birmingham, England and he started laughing at me. My pop is the man, I go to him in my many moments of despair and uncertainty; I doesn't always give me what I'd like to hear but he does provide me with the perspective I need in life. My wheels are up soon, perhaps you'll follow me. "Don't waste time..." #AfricanProverb #TheseAfricanGuys #MyHero "We're out here, come find us..." 6d

thisafricanguy The road to right here, right now, has been washed out and redrawn

Stolen, then pawned
Only to return anew

My views have been bright with a chance of haze, dark with some hints of grays, windy but no one to play, rainy with too many delays

So now I lay, calm
Two hand with open palms
There's nothing but silence but somehow I've triggered my mental alarm
Who's robbin' me, other than me

When will this all be over
Pass the controller
Sit, listen, now you're the beholders of a little time well spent

What's refraction if the light isn't bent
Am I a light which was Heaven sent only to be hellhound
Who's askin the questions now

My road will be... (Standing Still by @jammalrenel) "We're out here, come find us..." #FashionMisfits #AfricanDreamer

thisafricanguy I don't post too many TBT or WCW but today... Today my #WCW will go to the ultimate surfboard, my girlfriend @heatherbeatherboo. You're amazing not only because you held up my 6'2, 220Ibs body in this pic but because you keep me upright and on my toes in life . 1w

thisafricanguy And it's really that simple, taking hold of it and moving on is the hard part. You can apply this to a few aspects in life. No cool cat cries over spilled milk, the simply welcome it drink it up and move on... Keep it movin 1w

thisafricanguy Sometimes when it's cloudy
I close my eyes and find my inner Goudi

No Picasso or Rembrandt
Even in moments when I'm unsure
I freeze, mid stance
My pen stokes the pages of my mind with simple touches like Dehrur

I've observed many cultures
Walked on many shores
Spoken to many who have implored
"Where are you from and where are you set to go?" Ah, if the answers were as easy as night and day
The sunrise and sun-fall
If only I had the stature of Bunyan
And I was oh so tall
As to stick my head in the clouds and ask God a question or two
Why is it Gentile or Jew
Why is it black or white
Why is it that the blind can still feel the light
The light of this cruel world

Pen or sword
Sink or swim
There's a pot that too many are pissing in... All I'm doing is moving forward on this little stroll down my memories lane.
All we can do is dream a bit of what tomorrow might be. Thank you @jammalrenel for allowing me to be what others thought I never would be. #Strolling #liberianboy #lightanddarkness #Dreamer

thisafricanguy The darkest paths I've walked through with brightest of lights, in the waking hours of the day, my spirit takes flight to yesterday, when we turned to page to find the way laid before us all along... Same songs, being sang by throngs of spirits and other believers, who are here to receive us as we escape the zone... We can keep, keepin on until the light given starts to flicker and then it's dead and gone which way is home, fallen soldiers are remembered in song, curtains drawn, Crayola assortment of clouds I've been sleepin' on, Puff The Magic Dragon chillin with Cheech no Chong, who tryin to tell you where we all went wrong... Create your own song. @jammalrenel called this a stroll in the dark. So much can said through a camera. #LightAndDarkness #AngelsAndDemons #WereAllFighting #Depression #Hope #Laughter #Love #Fear #LiberianBoy 2w

thisafricanguy "In the year of our Lord, how many lords stood, which did the evil and which did the good, in between the living and in between the dying, how many are fixated on Heaven and how many are no longer tryin... The buy in, is your life, true story, when you're talkin to Jesus it'll be too late to say you're sorry, purgatory another chapter, pen in hand, writin on your hearts about the ever-after let the prayin begin..." @iamotisreed that's what I wrote but never shared for Pray. You see the storyboard @jammalrenel has created, now it's up to me to tell the stories. "I'm out here... Come find me." #ArmenianPose #LiberianProse #CanYouSeeMyLight #gbccrew 2w

thisafricanguy My brother @jammalrenel has always had an eye for making the regular seem amazing. There are plenty of photographers in this world but this guy should be shooting pics for someone bigger. This is the face only a mom could love. I remember people making fun of me not too long ago but here I am, all grown up, now. My suit game and bow tie are on point, my hair styled by the magic man himself @isaac_huerta. You know the motto "I'm out here, come find me..." #PhotographersKnowHowToRoll #UglyDuckling #BowTieGang Follow @jammalrenel 2w
