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


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 as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the higher God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness and love in me. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Peace and Blessings!
