Poem: The Promise Keeper

Some may have more than others, so it seems:

Some strive for what is right—to please,

Their maker and have sweet dreams:

Some climb high mountains, to see the beauty,

Of the splendid morning star, that beams:

"Oh so, beautifully!"

While some wish to soar way up high,

To see all the beauty of the marvelous sky,

the magnificent ocean—the great big sea:

And some, like me, Is thankful,

That God took his breath and breathe life in me

And say, “Child, I am so please!"

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.
