Poem: An Earthly Experience

I wish not to disturb

Or inconvenience you

Its’ something in me, saying,

‘Reach out, maybe you’re down

And feeling the blues’

I wish not to disturb you

But I just can’t help it

I wish to get to know, the real you

I wish not to leave you

But now, I know, the game is serious

and this is not an excuse

I just can’t be around you

It hurts too much

It’s getting harder to do!

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.
