Self portrait. “I’m approaching what feels like the end of my rope. In hard times i reflect on stoic principles and attempt to endure the things in life that dim my light. I reflect on my life as a black man and what success means to me. The layers of contradiction in seeking outward value and fulfillment and what those things represent with internal and intangible values.”
