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


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.
