Sometimes I think

Sometimes I think I Am alone,
left out, wronged and life
seems so unfair
Sometimes when I see others
soaring and life seems so
tiring, weary and ugly

Sometimes when I look at you
and you do not smile back at
me I wonder how your life is,
Is it worse than mine?

Sometimes I think I am alone
when ‘false love taken the
best out of me

Sometimes I think the road
I took, “was it to really
strengthen or make me
bend on my knees?

Sometimes I feel as if God
deserted me and “Karma’
seems so long and I am
unworthy to even speak
his name like I wish
to do freely

Sometimes I feel life is too
hard, too unsafe and he showed me
how bless I am, it could be worse,
each day I see

Sometimes I think I am alone
Then I hear so many people
lonely, dying, sick and do
not have much to eat
Then I see you pushing forward,
rising higher, greater
even in harsh uncertainty,
You remind me to rise,
You remind me to believe
You remind me to push forward,
smile brighter, laugh even more
You remind me I am important
and you make me see “I Am” Love
and that ‘love’ truly is
the greatest thing in me.

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
