Poem: A Prince Love Affair

Written by empressjournee

He stood with confidence,

Even when others see him,

As a man with no sense:

He smiles, sometimes befriends,

Those who are wise and unwise,

And lack credence: in his poetic way,

The battlefield is to conquer and protect;

His own — silently yet patiently,

He waits for his precious and dearest,

Cherished friend: Structure and prayer,

Is his spiritual food of the day,

And he is a man that does not,

Take on foolishness, even when things,

Becomes hard, his beloved, has his heart:

He is a Prince always on guard every minute,

Second and hour of the day.

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.
