Poem: 4mySisters

Even though we were separated,

Across the Caribbean Sea—Jamaica,

I remember you, as I go along:

Our ancestral spirit carries us,

Through, a path, away from our,

Mother’s tongue:

Yet God was there—all along:

In our insecurities, doubts, shame,

Division, shakes us, scared us, break us,

Uplift us—change us, to experience,

The peace of God’s wisdom:

Still, I remember you Sis—our mother’s tongue:

As I go along, I thank you, Sovereign Spirit,

Cause, you, pour out your mighty love,

You never leave us; You forgave us,

And allow us—my sisters, to

“Sing, God’s Prophetic songs!

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.
