Look deep within

The building large and elegant
and beautiful with various
people of different color,
background, size and shape
I met a man who told me
look deep within you will
find the answer that you
seek from the outside.
And I heard the choir, the
songs and he spoke to the
mass stand up for Christ
and I saw so many feeling
great about the message,
the word, the song and I
too felt excited; Then
ask “how can I be a part
of this greatness” the
answer ten percent where
your pocket lies, for a moment
I felt defeated and I felt
compel to ask again
how can I be part of this
greatness? the answer
I heard the man say as I
depart look deep within
not on the outside.

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.
