Poem: Self-Reflection ending of 2020

Why does my heart, feels so much void within?

Forgiveness set me free!

I pray and kneel—so earnestly;

As I read those daily devotion religiously,

Sent in the mail—oh so mysteriously!

I whisper, forgiveness set me free!

Some sees me as a burden, broken,

A number—statistic, confuse, hopelessly:

Self-reflection, the ending of 2020;

of my painful past that had affected me,

Still I write—grateful,  I can see:

Why does it hurt so much?

To love, to grow, spiritually—in your absence:

Forgiveness set me free!

“Love please, don’t forsake 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.
