Poem: Let Go and Let God

Written by empressjournee

I pray this morning,

For my eyes to set upon your face:

With glowing praise and not disgrace,

And I sang a precious song I hear,

Ringing in my ear: “To God be the Glory,”

Each and everywhere:

I read the scriptures over and over,

Giving thanks he has save me;

Asking Christ—come into my life,

More every day, “Please Lord, do change me!”

And for you to see a brand new me,

As I hope in the midst of my quiet prayer–about you,

—you would have heard me so clearly:

That his presence shines light upon your steps,

And every stride you make, it would be magnificently;

Building great vision for you and me

And I hope it would lead you right to me:

I know you may not see my sacred and precious King

The one who formed me; yes, he is there,

Pruning, carving a better and a brand new me,

He is working his power—good works through me:

I pray this morning—harder, greater, passionately,

Than I did before—to forgive you, forgive me:

But I only heard repeatedly, “I Am God!”

“Let go and let God, make space for me;

—and leave you be!”

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.
