My Reflections, Poetry

Till You Fear No More


Going through the day

Feeling good to be alive

Have family and friends

In a country where I can thrive

Doing what I can

To make this world a better place

Shine a light upon injustice

Trying to eradicate the hate

For while our brothers and our sisters

Continue to live in fear

While too many just see their color

Wanting them all to disappear

Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor,
George Floyd tragically gone

Yet, these injustices persist

While too many have just moved on

If you’ve never been afraid

Of living just as you were born

Being seen as inferior

Even worthless or ignored

When will more finally see

My Black sisters and Black brothers

I see you, I love you

And I’m glad that you were born

For you add value to this world

With your talents and your gifts

While the glorious shades of your skin

Add beauty only you can give

You are strong

You are worthy

And all of this you know

But until you are truly free from hate

You’ll never walk alone.

REFLECTION

 
Lord, may I reflect all that You are

To those I encounter

Please show them Your heart
Through the words that I say

And the actions I do

May I go unnoticed

As they only see You

And while I am just trying

To walk in Your ways

May You receive the glory

All honor and praise.
