I Thank the Universe

In my walk I saw a path that was
So beautiful yet lonely
And there was so many diverse
Of people in rays of colors that I did
Not know if I would be welcome to
Walk amongst greatness
And so I hesitate, made excuses
Not walking that beautiful yet
Lonely path—so it seems,
For I was without you by my side,
As I saw many soar
And so I spoke to the Universe,
Began to drew strength, breathe in
An exhale, and you fill my ear with
Love, my soul with peace, my heart
With courage, and I began to take
Steps, walk, move and soar with grace
On the path that once seem very lonely,
Unfriendly that was truly meant for me.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
