My Daddy Walk

My daddy walk with me
through spring, summer,
winter, hail or storm
my daddy walks with me
as I seek his presence
my daddy tells me I Am
great, I Am peace, I Am
beautiful, I Am his love
My daddy sings songs of
hope to me–to my soul
as I hold my head high
my daddy loves me like
no one else can
my daddy say I will never
ever be alone
and when I feel joy,loss,
sadness or when I am weary
My daddy holds me close
to his heart
and say, “I Am here dearest
child, You will never
walk alone”.

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.
