My name is Decardo, and this a summary of my life!
I was originally born in the state of Mississippi and I lived with my dad until I was four years of age. My mom was living in Memphis, Tennessee while I stayed with my father. I really don’t remember the majority of my time in Mississippi with my father so I can barely get into details. I had a stepmom that I actually thought was my aunt. My father’s birth name is Bill, but most people call him Champ because he actually took his high school basketball and football team to the championship games all four years in high school but he messed up his shoulder and collarbone so bad that he still has problems with them to this day.
My mom’s name is Deweese, and she is tall and as beautiful as beautiful gets. She is very kind with a good sense of humor. More like a people’s person. I have two brothers and two sisters. My oldest sibling is my big brother Demarcus. He’s 23 and is a part-time contractor. My first oldest sister is my dad’s daughter Keyana. She’s 22 years old and she is a professional tattoo artist and a nurse part-time. My second oldest sister is Demarion. She is a beautician and she’s 20 years old. Demarion has one child named Kai’dence who is 2 years old. And last but not least, my brother Corey is the youngest. He is 16 years old and he plays basketball for his high school and he is in the 10th grade. That’s my family! Oh, and my granny’s name is Maxine. She is everything that means loving and caring.
In my household, it’s only my little brother Corey and I though. My stepdad is a tall, cool guy but I don’t get along with him most of the time because of his kids. They come over every weekend and they’re so bad because their mom doesn’t tell them right from wrong so it's really difficult to be patient with three kids that’s 6,7, and 8 years old. So I don’t want to be around on the weekends and they use my bedroom while I’m gone and they destroy it. And guess who gets in trouble? Well, I guess you can figure that out, me!
But I had a couple of girlfriends that used to come over every now and then when my mom was in the mood. The first one was Taylor, she is 17, and is like so, so, so gorgeous. She has light-brown skin with braces and she’s 5’3 with long hair. She is fun-size so it’s so fun to hang and chill with her. She actually has feelings though.
But, my other girlfriend was named Corissa. She’s light-skinned, 5’5 with short hair like a bob. Corissa is cool with high self-esteem and she’s 19. She works at Nike and she is very loving and kind-hearted. She acts like my mom but I’m used to dealing with it, so hey!
My third girlfriend is Victoria. She’s 18 and about 5’3, brown-skinned and thick, thick, thick. You know… body shaped like a goddess. She works at Wolfe Chase Galleria at “Journey’s for Kids.” She’s laid back but she be so strict, so I just be kind of loving from a distance sometimes, you feel me?
The last girl is Ashley and she’s 22. She is cool but she thinks that I got to be at her crib by her side 24 hours a day. She’s grown and lord knows I regret talking to her at my sisters New Year’s party and my birthday party. She be calling me like 20 times a day and I be like “Why did I tell her all them lies just to make her feel good?” Well, they were not lies when I told her but I don’t feel the same as I did at first. I tried to tell her but she was like “You ain’t going nowhere! Can’t you get that out of your head? Ima stalk you! Yo sister gone tell me everything!”
She be doing the most! She even popped up on me when I had Corissa over my house for the weekend. I think my sister Keyana set me up though because she was cheesing the entire time I went outside to talk to her to make her leave. But, those are the girls!
I have been living in Raleigh and Frayser ever since 2004. I was raised right and disciplined as a child. I’ve just chosen the wrong people to be friends with. Not that they’re the reason I’m here, I blame myself because I was the one that chose to make my own decisions in the past but, stuff happens. I wish I could’ve had the knowledge I have now a long time ago. But now is the present and the past will forever be behind me.
My goal is to live my future before it even happens. I want to get a barbering license and a business administration degree. My goal is to get several barbershops and at least two barber schools. I’m also going to give back to the children, the youth, etc. I would love to get community centers going for after-school programs and tutoring. I’m going to setup a football and basketball league throughout the city of Memphis, or maybe even Tennessee. Who knows, it might be throughout all of the USA.
I’m going to be a positive mentor to kids and maybe even adults. My life has been a rough journey, but I plan on making other lives better than mine
