My time will come: It may not be this second, hour,

Minute, it may not be today—it will come!

It may not be tomorrow—it will come!

Am I being prepare? Yes, I Am! So, it will come!

My time will come! And when my time arrive at your timing!

I ask you to speak into my heart, yes—with your great poetic wisdom!

I will be more than a woman, a friend, a companion:

I will be your songbird, valued, respected, classy, proud,

I will be humble as you wish me to be—your quite lamb:

I will be a lady, ready to bring, great, men, women to rise,

—in unification, with compassion: There will be no division,

And we will be filled with more compassion, to make a difference,

For the youths, young men, women, elders, in our home, hearts,

And upon the land, that we walk, and stand:

My time will come, my time has arrived and I can see, the movement,

Of your magnificent people, and a glorious land! Yes, my time has arrived!

And I thank you Lord, for allowing your presence – speak volume to everyone:

You are mighty, sacred, you are Lord, over this land:

My time has come, this second, minute, hour, this year—my time has come!

And this is the greatest, sacred, and precious romance!

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!
