Poem: My Child

Written by empressjournee

Across the ocean lies greatness my strong child

And I held you close across my shoulder

As I give thanks to the wind—to the blue sky

To the regal divine mother and father that form

Shape you and I

Across the ocean lies greatness even when

I cannot see the mystical paradise that was told to me

I am grateful for the blessings, the gift, I now can see;

That you are the bright shining star which was given to 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.
