Poem: He Speaks

Written by empressjournee

He speaks!

Commanding attention

His voice echoes, as a warning

Like thunder, shaken the earth

Still, they could not hear.

He speaks!

Wake up, rise up

This is the way!

But they turn deaf ear.

He speaks!

Commanding attention

But his voice, they dismiss

Laugh at, as they walk away:

He saw their unbelief,

Stubborn ways

As if, they did not care.

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.
