Black, brown or white,

I am great in God’s eyes:

I am not less even if I am a mess,

I am great in God’s eyes:

I am great just like you,

Respect is always due;

To my ancestors that made,

The way for me and you;

I am goddess, even in my blues:

I wish the best for you;

although we’ve part, I thank you,

cause you have help me grow

and that is true;

I am a goddess—especially,

when I am with the great me,

and the great you!

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.
