Poem: Dear Lord

Written by empressjournee

Some people don’t know how to pray,

Take you seriously, some feel prayer,

Is for the insane:

Some people—lost faith as they go about,

Their day to day; help them even if they stray,

To find their way, see the light—your love every day:

And some are young, just getting, to know you

Still, come what may they pray:

So, I ask you today, Lord, let me be the one,

That rise up each morning—as I take breath,

To give thanks, because you have blessed,

My parents, children, love ones, so beautifully;

For that I ask you, breathe more blessings—over my life,

Their life; I want to know you, more and more each day,

So that I don’t cause myself, anymore shame, grief,

And anyone sorrow or pain.

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.
