Poem: Maybe

Written by empressjournee

…….your sweet diction, made me love you:

Or your kind voice, proud walk, persuade me,

To hold your hands—romance you;

Maybe my love was too strong, over powering,

to hold you: But I do understand, I was not enough,

You had to let me go: to find your dreams, to live,

The kind of life you like, you want to do—to find you,

to find a real woman to make you, a better 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.
