Poem: Sometimes

Written by empressjournee

Sometimes I cry, smile, laugh out loud,

When gloom tries to oppress my life

Then my thoughts takes me away,

For a beautiful gracious ride,

Reminding me nothing can stop me,

From succeeding with ‘hope and faith’ is my life.

Sometimes I write sweet poetic words to my heart,

Like a magnificent joyful nursery rhyme.

Sometimes I wish I’d treasure more my heart,

See love in everyone, more beautiful, deeply as I thrive

That ‘hope’ will place, an attentive, adventurous, faithful,

And ambitious soul, mirrors the image of strength like him and I.

Sometimes I remind myself to be gentle, forgive myself,

Those whom I felt, was so difficult and so unkind,

That is where I look up to the majestic, brilliant, and colorful sky

Sometimes when I feel lonely that is where I find out I am not alone

It is always love, hope and faith, taking me higher, light up my life

That is where I laugh out loud and I smile!

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.
