Thank You Holy One

Thank you for helping me write
my story of greatness when
some may rewrite it wrong
Thank you for helping me sing
my song of greatness even when
Some may feel my voice isn’t so
peaceful, loving and strong
and when I am tested every day
Thank you for helping me keep
going on
Thank you for helping me
rise when fear try and may
succeed of tearing me down
Thank you for helping me
dream of my greatness when
I can’t seem to understand
I am being prepare to reach
far, to the place where I
Truly belong
Thank you for helping me ask
you for pardon when my ungodliness
offends me, offends you Merciful
Holy one
Thank you for helping me write
my story of greatness when you
have wounded me I know through
love, you have made me strong!

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.
