I Am somebody dedicated to men & women with depression

“I am somebody/even when my
Presence depict uneasiness
as you show signs of mistrust,
Doubt, insecurities
As if/I may brake, fall apart,
By the stigma of diagnosis
None knows but He,
That I am somebody.
“I am somebody
Even in a moment of disillusion
Even in a moment of feeling unsurety,
Isolated that I am invisible,
“I am somebody.
“I am somebody
Even when my eyes, words,
Silence, steps,
May be misunderstood
Misrepresented–through fear
No one knows but God
I am somebody.
As I hold my head up high As i silently pray for you
For me when I am weary
When I am afraid when I feel void when I feel like weeping when I am alone in his presence
Even in the darkest moment
I remember
His goodness His mercy His grace
Where I was—yesterday
Where I am—today
And where I will be—in the future
I will say over and over again even in silence
I am somebody
I am somebody
I am somebody
I am pleased to know
Through Him, he tells
Me I am somebody
a beautiful somebody,
His child, just like you!

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.
