Poem: The Southern Blues

Written by empressjournee

Different, conflicting—without you:

Won’t allow my heart to smile, when days are lonely, and words are few:

The Southern Blues, have the rich and poor, like cage bird,

Singing, unfamiliar songs, yet, it seems,

Some are singing, the same old tune; that tell tales

– to those who have no clue,

That we are one, beautiful, rare and awesome melody:

The Southern Blues, the Southern Blues, the Southern blues,

Let me hear the voice of God, cause you have — inspired,

Stir, awaken— the soul that feels at times blue,

The Southern blues, the Southern blues, the Southern blues,

I am getting to know more of you!!

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.
