Love Me Enough

I don’t want to chase after you
Like I did before
I don’t want to tell you silly
And foolish things like I did before
I don’t want to show you
How I feel even if you can see
Through me like I did before
I don’t want to cry as girls
Like me do, like I did before
I don’t want to dance alone
Like I did before
I don’t want to smile
Too much for you to think
I am easy like I did before
I don’t want to look and look
To find you were never there
And it was only my own illusion
Like I did before
I don’t want to see no other
Like I did before
Only if you love me enough
To do all that I don’t want to do
Like I did before
I just want to really know you,
and you know me so that I can be
All I can be to you, only you,
Like I never did before.

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.
