Lights, cameras — shine, shine, shine!

For a moment, maybe sometime:

Keep your eyes on the prize

“Let your presence, be so divine!”

Like a gem oh refined:

Friends, family, I ask be kind, be kind

Discerning Heart, look within, “Oh, be wise!”

Holy counsel, help to elevate, the soul, 

Thoughts — yes, the mind:

Heal the soul, body, the mind, the mind,

Bring success, all of the time!

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.
