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.

Poetry

BY MY STRENGTH


The battle you have feared

You’ve already overcome

Not because it’s completed 

But in Me it’s finished; it is done. 

I’ve surrounded you with warriors

Both here and the realms about

Because you are my mighty soldier

And it’s time for My Spirit to go out. 

It is time for truth and justice

For you, dear one, are mine

You’ve struggled and cried out

I saw and heard you every time. 

Take courage and know I’m with you 

You will never be left alone

For you are ready and I’ve made you able

It is I who sits on the throne. 

With you comes great strength

With you comes great power

With you comes far more 

That the enemy will never devour. 

So walk this walk with Me

In My arms you’re always free

For I am your Creator

Now live as you’re meant to be.
