lost in my own breakup there love seem far

flame ignite within and hid underneath the soil sheets

wishing to meet real love there I found out the magic

that sings love lost found near far touch my heart

your presence let me dance I thought was romance

then I listen to fear like a pure tanzanite ocean swallowing

my love that you don’t need me want me the tears became flood

and I drown in my sob there darkness told me that I was invisible

not important felt like I was being swallowed all over again

and shadiness has won then I was awakened to the hypocrisy

and betrayal of a heart confused misused refused to embrace

compassion still kindness found me still kindness forgave me

still kindness sees me goodbye I say to the one I saw

mightier than the sky.

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
