Some people come into your life to stay
Others for the journey
When you find those who are made to be part of you,
You make them your priority
And keep them with you forever
Monkey is the synonym for Stephen Kwaku Larbi Darkoh Junior. A pint size man who has had the greatest influence in my life since 2012. We met through our mutual love for creative arts and as I am usually drawn to the misfits and weirdos, we became friends.
Throughout our bond, we have had our ups and downs. They have not always been pretty but we grew stronger with each flaw. We have now gotten to the point where we will make sacrifices for each other no matter what. This must be a fraction of the unconditional love the Lord has for us.
There is so much I have to say about Monkey but I’d rather not. I like knowing that I know a part of him people do not know. Even though he is now taken and on the way to discover a new life with his beloved, I believe I will always hold a portion of his heart like he will mine.
People like Monkey redefine your standards and have you reassessing your values. They set you on high and make you believe in yourself.
If there is one thing I will always be grateful to POETS for, it is the fact that I met Monkey through them.
On this day where you celebrate your birthday, I wish you all the happiness and joy you deserve and do not not deserve.
Love you always.
Donkey aka stubborn mule
