I Am Thankful, for the Sun, the Moon, Stars—the Sky:

The Ocean, Earth, Silence— Mankind!

I am thankful for the experience, joy and tears, you bring to me

And wiping the crystal rain, from my eyes;

For the days and nights: I thank you for my life, the blessings you gave,

And the precious prenatal chamber, that allows me to feel love,

And fill with smiles: Good morning, Jesus, I thank you for the great men,

And women who teach us etiquette, the holidays, honoring you,

And prayers that save my life: I thank you God, for the many blessings,

Lessons, for healers, my loves ones, friends gone, friends present;

For those who have pass on, into the light: I thank you for the scriptures,

That teach me to be wise: Thank you for what I should know,

And what I should not know: for those who have seen,

Your beautiful light and for those who wave, out of respect and say hi:

Good Morning Lord! I thank you Lord, for those, who have made great sacrifice: 

Great mystical singers—to uplift our hearts, our minds, for the rich, wealthy,

The poor, for—my sight! I thank you for your forgiveness, for those,

Who know love, wish to feel love and be love, those with beautiful,

And brilliant mind & for those who may have passed me by:

And as I end this poetic scripture, I wish to say, I love you Lord,

I love you Lord, I love you Lord; I ask you, please stay with me,

And allow me to have a restful and precious night!!

About the author


I am a proud mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, a singer, great cook, a lover of unique, fashionable earrings, and love to wear & dress in an unique, artistic fashion.
I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin, taught at an Head-Start and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose, World-A-Girl and others I admired. My career ended due to the path and choices I made. However, I drew strength to rise, through Christ, the support of love ones and guidance of Christ. I give thanks for the knowledge and experience that allowed me to see my own flaws, steps I took and the game of life. I am still working on the connections with my love ones that has been fractured. However I am grateful that God has allow me to still have a way of reaching out to my love ones and to express my inner thoughts through poetry. I am growing everyday as I work on a higher Christ consciousness of my mind. I give thanks to my natural parents for doing the best they could to see me through my pursuit to success. I consider myself a great person and love to give of myself, which at times are a positive and negative. I am also working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. I hope when you read these poetic thoughts you can relate, especially people who are battling with depression and self-worth. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts. Think Wisely!
