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


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
