Realizations of a King II: Message to the Queen

There is an old saying that says, behind every great man, there's a great woman. I have realized how true this statement is. To be a great king, you must have a great queen by your side.

Where would Martin Luther King Jr. be without Coretta?

Where would Malcolm X be without Betty Shabazz?

No king can be great alone. He needs a woman's support that can help him get through the good times and the bad. In my ignorant days, I thought you didn't need a woman to be successful. I felt that a woman could be the downfall of a man. It turns out that a woman can push a man to heights he could never reach alone. That's why a king needs a queen. He needs that person by his side to remind him to make the right decisions, even when he is pressured to make the wrong ones. He needs that person to keep him focused on the light at the end of the tunnel, even when the light is too dim to be seen.

When the whole world is on his shoulders, she gives him the strength to hold it. A queen is a king's second wind when he gets weary in the race of life. Her love is fuel to his heart. Her love can silence his doubts. Her love is the upper hand in the fight against the negativity that a king faces every day.

 She is the cavalry when he goes to war with his demons. She is also the welcome party when he comes back victorious.

A king's primary job is to lead, and a queen makes sure that he never forgets why he is leading.

A queen is that support system, the extra words of wisdom, and the king's overall heart. A queen is why kings don't fear failure; because she is the reminder that there is no such thing.

 he love of his Queen inspires the realization of a king.

It says in Proverbs 18:22, "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord."

 Once you realized you're a king, you will be able to look to your side and see the Queen that was there all along.
