On a plane to Paris, France, Ethiopia,

—Switzerland, true Paradise:

Take me to a land, that knows the Great God,

Have hearts sing, and smiling face, is on the land,

Laughter, joy—true romance:

Take me on a plane, and let love, be the language;

that stimulate the mind; a place where you and I,

won’t feel confine, as you hold my hand

Take me, my beloved, to a place where its’,

just you and I.

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.
