Poem: Mother—Father

Written by empressjournee

Treat me kind: Don’t leave me behind,

Speak words gently to my heart—mind,

So, that I can fly, reach to the highest sky,

Mother—Father, treat me kind

Don’t leave me behind

Speak greatness in and over my life,

That cleanse, every toxic energy,

So, I can unlock the power, that is hidden,

Conceal: Mother –Father, treat me kind

Even when I am not what you expect or think of me

And my love will flow over to many, that look just like me

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.
