Poem: Waiting for God 2021

The home that was chosen for me,

I see nobody, just the mere grass

And semi-twin home, not so grand yet lovely:

They are there, in their own world:

Some are lost & lonely: Shades close,

For privacy—I know they are there,

Watching, looking—longing to be free:

As I go about, my daily duties,

Humming, singing songs of praise, thanking Christ,

That delivered me: even when, I see nobody,

I remember they are there, just like me,

Waiting for God to set them free.

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.
