Things to Remember When I’m Afraid

By |June 9th, 2014|

Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne

But the thing I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King

There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring

Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst

So why […]

Fearless

By |May 27th, 2013|

I think I could be an amazing woman

And do amazing things

I’ve been thinking

What if I was fearless

What adventure could that bring

 

Could I jump out of a plane?

Or go swimming with the sharks

Could I climb a mountain?

Go dancing after dark

 

Could I learn the salsa,

Meringue, mambo, flamenco

Could I run a marathon, go parasailing

Or taste escargot?

Nah!

 

Could I fly […]

I Am Courage

By |April 12th, 2013|

I am courage

because I am afraid

but despite my fear

I persevere

 

I am courage

because I dream

but despite my doubts

I try them out

 

I am courage

because I stand

despite my trembling legs

and shaky hands

 

I am courage

because I move forward

despite my temptation

to be a coward

 

I am courage

because I step up and step out

despite the fear inside me sprout

 

I am courage

because I […]

Water

By |April 21st, 2012|

Oh, how many ways

because of you, we are blessed

of all God’s gifts to this Earth,

you are one of the greatest

 

You moisten our parched lips

You keep us cleanse from the ends of our toes

to our fingertips

You renew our soul, when we feel blue

You revitalize and energize

We are thankful for you

 

I honor you in your many forms,

lakes, […]

Sunflower

By |April 21st, 2012|

You stand grand and tall above them all

Your golden petals extend with majesty and grace

As the warmth of the sun reflect on your face

 

My dear sweet sunflower

I like it how you always face the sun

No matter what happens, it’s your life’s mission

 

So very much, I’d like to be like you

Make this my life’s mission too

Keep […]

I’ve Decided

By |February 29th, 2012|

I’ve decided to leave it all behind

I’ve decided I’m letting it go this time

I’ve decided I’m not taking old baggage with me

I’ve decided from stress and worry, I’ll flee

 

Life’s too short to waste a moment of it

That’s why I’m not gonna blow it

I’ve decided I want a life covered in love

I wanna bask in the […]

Little Nuggets of True Happiness

By |February 29th, 2012|

At this moment I feel complete

At this moment I can hear my heart beat

At this moment I feel blessed

A little nugget of true happiness

 

Dear Lord, help me preserve

this feeling in my heart wherever I go

So when times are rough and times are tough

And I’m feeling a bit low

 

I can hold on to my nugget of […]

The Real Phenomenal Woman

By |January 4th, 2012|

Her worth is not determined by physical appearances

nor her beauty by the color of her skin

Her extraordinary loveliness shines through

An effervescent glow from within

 

What makes her phenomenal?

Is it the stride of her strut?

Is it the curve of her hips,

the shape of her booty or the size of her lips?

 

What makes her phenomenal?

God’s word discuss

She is […]

A Mother’s Garden

By |January 4th, 2012|

On her shelves, tables, mantels and walls

There you will find framed photographs, photo albums, scrapbooks,

trophies, medals, certificates, momentums of achievement,

boxes of pictures not yet framed or hung

 

Captured moments in the evolution of time

Weddings, Graduations, Birthday Parties, celebrations

and life’s simply joyful times

 

In drawers and storage rooms

Old report cards, artwork, homemade Mother’s day, Birthday, Christmas day and […]

8 P.M

Ahhhhhh

8 P.M

I’ve been waiting for you

Dreaming about you all day

Thoughts of you have seen my through

Now the adults can play

The children are asleep finally

I can hear myself think

Aaaaaaahhhh

8 P.M

You are a good friend

You help keep me sane

Thoughts of you have seen me through

Now I can breathe again

During these noisy times,

my heart rate climbs

Now it can […]
