Poem: Flame of light

Written by empressjournee

…………..……I use to wish, to be chosen,

As a strong, vibrant—Rastafarian,

Fill with love, gratitude & greatness:

A wish, I dream of in the silence,

Of my sorrowful heart and when we parted;

I became enlighten of the sins of my thoughts,

The world and my broken heart; and I weep,

Pray, ask for pardon to the God of breath:

To the sons of light.

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.
