Poem: Father

Written by empressjournee

I like to feel empowered—great:

Important, worthy—precious,

When your name is mention,

When your face is a reflection, of your love for me,

I like to feel proud like a regal goddess;

When they see me walking, speaking, singing—in tone,

So beautifully:  And know that I am connected to you;

Dad, I like to feel loved—true love;

No matter how rich or poor—I am,

Even if they hate, used, despised—you or me:

I like to feel and know I am your beautiful child,

That represent a daughter from a powerful, mighty,

And great Royal 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.
