Poem: I Am Your Sister

Written by empressjournee

I am your sister, with different shades, hair,

Texture, which tells a story of where we began:

Created magnificently!

Created with love!

I am your sister, remembering the history

Told about Moses, Harriet, Rosa,

The first American:

And the white dove, that symbolize peace,

Like a great, calm moment, a sweet meditation.

I am your sister, learning what it means

When it hurts so bad, yet I am thankful

For I am getting closer to my destination.

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.
