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


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.
