Poem: Spiritual Sense

Written by empressjournee

When I was young, I never saw myself,

As a beautiful princess; For I was confuse,

Saw beauty, more in someone else:

When I was an adolescent, I try to find love,

In places, that was not so exemplary, dignify;

My expectations failed me very well:

I was seen as gullible, unwise,

Lack spiritual maturity, inauthentic,

Not the greatest beauty, friend,

Talk too much, lack positive attributes,

To some of them: Now that I am middle age,

Pounds I have gain, in various places;

My mind has taken me, on a self-worth,

Powerful journey, that brought tears,

Joy, hope, life lessons, trying to fit in,

And being my authentic self:

Yet, Glory to God, I am finding love,

More within, “I thank God for teaching me,

The danger, of being unwise;

Giving me hope, through his word,

And much more, spiritual sense.

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.
