“New Year, New Hope, Now you are here!”

“Breathe! Exhale!

New energy! New light!”

Make things right, make things clear:

Since the old have passed on, to a newer height;

my tears are less: I am bless!

—some may wonder why,

I miss the face I once knew;

Yet you are with me—to show me,

That there is a greater view:

Your presence always gives me life;

2021-1202 spirit moves me,

to a higher purpose,

The greatness of your light,

—Thank you, great intelligence:

“You have opened my eyes!”

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.
