This stranger talk was held at a great barbershop. Enjoy. Information on the shop below.
Peter sat down
he flirted, gently teased
slightly obnoxious, abundantly sincere
He opened up, shared a love story
Boy did I need a reminder, I was all ears
I’m not proud of my boys
I had nothing to do with it
My boys are grown, an attorney a semi pro baseball player . . . I love them
still not proud
because it wasn’t my doing
I learned this early on
I noticed, my firstborn wouldn’t drink until it was just right
We all start out knowing exactly what we want . . .
From that day forward, I made sure to always give my sons the power to choose
He freed them
Letting go of all ownership
Not shouting. . . May I teach them to be free . . .
Whispering . . . free yourself baby, be free
I met this stranger at Charles Blades Barber Spa (link). An incredible black owned barber shop. Feels like Oakland. Cool, hip, warm and with lots of style. Handsome guys, good cuts, great convos. Highly recommended.
