To want the best, as you liberate me,

with great songs, that uplift my soul-energy:

You Empowered me,

To vision the greatness beyond the eyes to see

To dream the songs, I wish to speak

To live life excellent, how it should be

To dance magnificent, mighty and gracefully!

You empowered me—even if it was only in my dream

I thank you, claim this now, in the present, future—to be!

I do believe, someday I will be more than,

What I am today, expect to be:

A success, far what I vision of me!

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.
