Listen to the southern revival songs

The poetic messages, the heart of memories’

Of hope, and take heed, that old

And young legacy lives on:

Reminding us all, that angels are there

To help those who have never felt love

Those who are in love, those who are broken

Those who are mourning a love one,

And those who, will, themselves to live on

Despite what they have done

Somebody or someone is in the wrong

Listen to the southern revival songs

To those who did not listen, take heed

Those who did not take care of themselves,

Who were wrong, lonely, afraid

When we hear the trumpet sound

Angels are rising all around

Listen to the southern revival songs

That teach the young and old songs

That they should and can carry on

That was and is still around.

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
