Poem: This is me,

Written by empressjournee

Some say I am spice, soft, strong, bold—sassy:

Some even dare to say I am crazy,

You hold my heart in captivity,

Show me the way to Joy— my Holy Jesus,


So ‘You, don’t impune, my integrity!

If I am so free to meet my Majesty

—Help me to be, surrounded by His grace,

Free me from chains that hold you; holds me,

So I can become close to you, closer to my Saviour,

—Jesus Our Amazing God, Our wonderful Hierarchy!

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.
