Many songs that allow my mind,

To feel empowered, like it is, I,

Who you truly love:

You speak so highly of our living God,

As I wish you and I could sing

Those magnificent, triumphant,’

Powerful, brilliant—songs:

You sing, my love, your heart,

With deep passion, love for Zion,

In your tongue: I too, sing, 

To those great, serious, marvelous, 

Uplifting, exceptional songs:

As I sit, sleep, work, move — dance,

That allows, the universe to know,

'We are truly loved!'

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.
