Poem: ‘We Rise Victoriously’

Written by empressjournee

There are gentlemen, so there are ladies,

Young men and women, having babies,

Chasing dreams and money,

Who appears, a dream, a success,

Greater than you and me.

There are those who succeeded

Nothing stand in their way—maybe

And those who seems to be cheated daily

Yet, rise above like stars over hurdle’s


‘Who say we are unworthy?’

Still, the path will be enlightened

By someone higher than you and me

Who is fair, cares and triumph

Over that which keep those, lost hope

From rising victoriously!

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.
