Living on Paper

By |March 1st, 2012|

Living life in theory, visualizing who I want to be,

and writing about her, that’s easy


Living life in real-time

That’s the hard part.

Sometimes I don’t know where to start


On paper, I feel strength and confidence

I know what life’s about

I want that for real so badly

I wanna scream and shout


Make my paper scribbles and visualizations

more real to me

Make […]

I Cry out to You Lord

By |February 23rd, 2012|

I cry out to you Lord

Because I don’t know what else to do

I am lost and alone; I’m looking up to you

I try to make things better on my own

Time after time

But I fail, trapped in my own mental grime


I scream out to you Lord

Until my throat is sore

Yet, I feel no victory, no winning […]

I Surrender

By |February 22nd, 2012|

I raise my hands up

I reach out to you

No more trying to figure it out

No more wondering what to do


I surrender all

I surrender it all to you

My circumstance, my situation

I’ll trust in you to guide me to a resolution


I will take it moment by moment

One step at a time

Wait for your answers

In the right time


I […]

My Prayer

Thank you Father

For my now and all my yesterdays

For my accomplishments, successes, failures and mistakes

Thank you for victories and my family

Thank you for my siblings, my mommy and daddy

Who am I?

I wanna know

Where do I belong?

Tell me this so


Where is this journey taking me?

Open my eyes, Lord

Let me see


Who am I?

I wanna know

Where am I going?

Tell me this so


Who is the woman I am supposed to be

Is that woman inside of me?


Am I a good person?

Am I a good mother?

Am I a good […]

Dear God

Work in me

Work through me

Work with me

Work on me

Work around me

Strengthen me

Empower me

Guide me

Advise me

Encourage me

Motivate me

Inspire me

Transform me

And help me

To become

A better me

The Sweetest Love

By |February 17th, 2010|

I’m on bending knee

God, you are so good to me

I’m standing on my heels

I’m dancing on my toes

I’m singing with my eyes

I’m screaming with my nose

If no one else here gets me

That’s okay, you do

You understand and love me endlessly

You wouldn’t try to change me

You only want to teach me

To be the best at whom […]

Sometimes I sit alone and just shed tears

Wondering why I was born in this time

A time when one has so many fears


I see the newspaper day by day

All that’s left for me to do is pray

They’re shooting, stabbing, killing for no reason

Without a second thought or care


Everyday you walk the roads in fear

What if I […]
