I hear the voice,

Of the rising sUn, speak—sing:

He calls my heart, and remind me.

Of the greats that lives:

I wish to keep pushing forward,

Take flights higher than I ever think:

I hear the voice 

Of the rising sUn speak--sing:

Through the lows and high tides,

The rain, hail, snow, storm, the seasons, 

Summer, Autumn, winter, Spring:

He rises every season—reminding, all life,

There’s something greater, splendid;

To get up, and spread our mighty wings,

He encourages me to live :

In his silence, steps, to me, he is,

An example of a mighty, precious,

Powerful and wonderful King!

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.
