In A Moment

Riding in the backseat. With mommy and daddy in my view. Playing with my baby doll. Enjoying the summer breeze. Mommy laughing with daddy. Coasting along the highway. Taking the scenic route. Then daddy slowed down. Mommy got nervous. Behind me were red and blue lights. What did daddy do? A man gave daddy instructions.…

Parenthood

I believe Father's Day is one of the hardest holidays to face. Simply because there are so many absentee dads. In the African-American culture alone seventy-percent of dads are not in the home. Our kids are being raised in single parent homes and so many mothers are left with the responsibility alone. We have kids…

Rainbow

An explosion of colors. Plastered in the sky. A love letter. Sent to remind. Of His faithfulness. So you will never have to wonder. That He thinks the world of you.    

Solace Keeper

There is a place where I can lay my head. When I have been blinded from hope. It is a place that reaches beyond my limitations. Greater than my bed of affliction. Silences the noise in my head. Rest the matters of my heart. A place of refuge. Escaping from the misfiring of negative bullets…

4 Lights

4 lights came into the Earth. Formed fearfully in the womb of their mother. Heart beating for their Father. D.N.A of an undefeated King. Clothed with humanity. Strength of a lion. Armored with love. Overflowing with mercy. Wise as wisdom. Born with a purpose. To radiate the rays within.    

Stone Cold Love

Pregnant with life. Punched by hate. A love that grew cold. The mother of his child. He forgot to handle me with care. My body lay lifeless on the naked floor. Hearing the racing of my heartbeat. Wondering? How could this be? The life I lived. Screaming for help. But no one heard. Accept my…

Return

Your first love. Is calling you. Back home. To the secret place. The garden. The place where true love dwells. To cultivate a safe place. A place of hope. And freedom. To be nurtured by love.

Only God Can Judge Me

You judge me before I enter a room. You see my brown skin. You see my curly kinks. You see my tall stature. You see me with four kids. And no dad. You see me with only a two year degree. You look down upon me. Because you climbed the ladder. A little higher. If…

Failed Love

You said you loved me. You said you would always be there. You said I could always count on you. You lied. You left me when I needed you most. I called and called. You never answered. Love never fails. But your love did.

Time

I have been lost without you. Searching day and night. Only to come up empty handed. Blinded by lies. Entangled in the past. Stuck in quick sand. Waiting for you. Your silence. Has left me in misery. The chaos of my soul. Is so loud. Be still. My life. Draw near. Acknowledge Him. Before time.…
