Poem: The Heart Speak

Written by empressjournee

Where are you my love?

Not the love that corrode

And breaks hearts,

The one that sees my presence,

Worthy—magnificent, because you hold my heart:

Where are you my love?

You who anchor, calms the raging storm:

Where are you great King?

That brings peace, order and joy within:

Did you not promise?

That love would continually be drench within;

—close, not far?

When I am up and when I am low,

I command greatness, great vision, true love,

That honors, seeks, the fullness, goodness, of my heart:

—let me sing your songs that sweeten hearts, as your great reward;

Let favor be your grace and goodness that empowers me,

As you change everything that is not right,

That troubles me—that troubles my heart!

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.
