Reflection of a heart

Detach from your sacred womb,

you embraced the soul frame—body,

With eyes, gentle, soft, your love calm fear.

“I am” all that you saw, you ever need.

You knew ‘I am ‘ that we were bless by His majesty.

You placed the small frame on your bosom

In the moment of void—his presence, you felt,

was connected to the great heaven

an overwhelming  warmth,

life felt pleasing—pleasant with God proclivity,

As your baby cries: tears of joy seeps,

your arms open wide

You pray; thank the Lord,

 that the baby was by your side,

tiny, innocent and fragile—a gentle child

you remove from your bosom

the prize, the gift, so beautiful—tenderly!!

Life begins to do the work; the child turns

To be the journey, recreate, share the blessing,

the hope—that Christ, Holy Jesus, died,

Risen from the grave, forgives us, loves mercifully!’

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.
