Poem: God, Can You Help

I received calls that are not so jolly

Faces unknown, I cannot see,

Still the sun rise, yes indeed:

Some calls are silent, some are fill

With deep love for you and I

Some calls are off, in their reasoning,

 I did not foresee: Some shared ‘their needs

For money, even when much is given,

Thinking that will bring inner peace,

Sometimes, Lord, that is truly me:

 I ask you, teach me to be still

And get more closer to you beautifully:

In any form of disharmony, and respond

With great elegance, with great integrity:

Some callers seems has if they are bored,

Like they are always lonely, that seems off,

Weird, that seems crazy:

“Great God of the highest heaven

Can you help us, to be true, completely?”

“Erase our painful past, painful history,

“Let true love speak oh, so gently!”

“Give thanks, for all the grace you have shown us!”

“Give thanks, for what you are doing within us

Reveal yourself truly and fill our hearts and mind,

With pure love—joyously!”

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.
