Sixty-two, “Jesus, move power into my soul!”

When I am up, alone, when I am asleep into the night:

Thank you for—your marvelous light and keeping me strong:

There were times of joy, tears; there were moments, I sigh,

And felt I did not belong: There were also cool touch—a tender smile:

There were good seasons and trying seasons of changes,

In a mystical and historic time, parting months of growth,

December, Spring, Summer, Autumn—life and sound of church bell,

Ringing of great news to bless our lives:

Sixty-Two, kind wishes and greetings of— the magnificent one;

I realize more and more—Jesus is alive, as I listen to your sentimental sermon;

Giving thanks to you—the Holy One: Lord keep me in prayer,

As I pray for my love ones, and bless our community with scriptural

And meditative uplifting songs: Sixty-two, may I thrive to be the best,

Whether I am at home, work or taking a stroll on your blessed land:

I am grateful for the years, the awareness, of your mystical love,

And powerful songs: I can’t wait, Lord to meet you in a quiet place,

As you speak into my heart, powerful poetic notes, bless my love ones,

— with spiritual wisdom, as I share my confession:

Now, I wish to celebrate, your magnificent love, Victory,

Great, marvelous and precious–wisdom: Have a good day, evening, night,

Holy Spirit, for your unconditional love!!!

About the author


I am a proud mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, a singer, great cook, a lover of unique, fashionable earrings, and love to wear & dress in an unique, artistic fashion.
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 working for the Human Resource Admin, taught at an Head-Start and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose, World-A-Girl and others I admired. My career ended due to the path and choices I made. However, I drew strength to rise, through Christ, the support of love ones and guidance of Christ. I give thanks for the knowledge and experience that allowed me to see my own flaws, steps I took and the game of life. I am still working on the connections with my love ones that has been fractured. However I am grateful that God has allow me to still have a way of reaching out to my love ones and to express my inner thoughts through poetry. I am growing everyday as I work on a higher Christ consciousness of my mind. I give thanks to my natural parents for doing the best they could to see me through my pursuit to success. I consider myself a great person and love to give of myself, which at times are a positive and negative. I am also working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. I hope when you read these poetic thoughts you can relate, especially people who are battling with depression and self-worth. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts. Think Wisely! Love Empress Journee!
