Poem: Time Will Tell

Written by empressjournee

I receive a gift: Someone thought of me,

"Could it be you or could it be me?”

It wasn’t something I foresee, nor wrapped up,

Brilliantly, in a fancy box — expertly:

Filled with millions of stars, glittering dust, shared evenly:

I am thankful that they chose me, gives me hope,

That my true God, is watching over me:

Time has change, I wish not to remain the same,

Stuck with old habits, that does not bring God’s glory;

Instead, new miracles that foretell, 

A successful year, and great stability:

I hope my new look, brings, lots of luck, 

This new year, beyond, a beautiful rose bed!  

As I end this poetic piece, by saying, instead,

“Farewell, 2021, and welcome, 2022, a new year filled,

With gratitude, great news, health, wealth, 

Abundance, prosperity, only time will tell; 

I wish you all a good health!

Although I did not reach the level I had aspired for myself to reach and meet great actresses and singers that make the United States of America a grander, refined and famous place to live, work and visit, due to health issues, the path I took; I am given the privilege to work on my mindset and self growth. Its a challenge, still I am grateful that I am becoming awakening to my own flaws and seeing the light of God's greatness. The support of my love ones, my faith, and people who believed in me, I am able to write these poetic thoughts. I also had the opportunity to meet wonderful, great, inspiring leaders that motivate me to think 'powerful and loving thoughts, and encourage me to see the great success in me.
