    The irises of your eyes
    gleamed with this speck of humanity
    A miraculous spiritually
    That awakened the earth
    With a light so heavenly.

    Singing the psalms of healing saints
    Comforting the hurt
    With the wings of an angel.

    A spectacle of awestruck compassion
    Sung through your heart
    with the music
    of heaven’s poetic harps.

    Your words flowed
    through our souls
    like the everlasting Nile.

    A love so pure
    A vision so divine.

    A spectacle of tears
    now flows from our eyes.

    I learned that our souls flow with poetic verses that awaken the mysteries of life,
    Every mistake forming crevices and scars that are planted with the seeds of creating a new tree of hope, under the wisdom of the shade of forgiveness of self, planting knowledge blooming with the sun rays of tomorrow and resting under the moonlight rhymes of love.

    Poetry
    Should be the expression of every
    emotion trapped within
    The impression of the soul
    Paper and pen
    The elevation of the mind
    undefined
    The sacred connection where humanity resides.

    Poetry
    Should be the sword that overcomes oppression
    The comfort the lets go of depression
    The artwork of morals that
    Dance toward heaven
    The home of the lost, wandering and rejected.

    Poetry
    Should be the world that we question
    The meadows of decompression
    Our sin’s confessions,
    Our progression in life’s lessons.

    Poetry
    Should be the art of appreciation
    The soul of creation
    Words forming love
    Words erasing hate
    The connection of hearts
    in a way we relate.

    Poetry should be
    The expression and acceptance
    Of all our perfections and imperfections
    Scripted with our own unique perceptions

    #roots #wod

    Roots undefined
    I wandered through life
    A street child
    A beggar of righteousness
    A prayer for justice

    Alone
    Rags I called my clothes
    The sidewalk
    Concrete I called my home
    Every passage in the Bible
    Referring to the Orphan
    Became my first and last name

    Roots dug deep
    Planted in my soul
    A heart that knew the home of suffering
    A soul that knew the roots of abandonment
    A reality to the image of poverty
    A body that grew in hunger.

    So I searched through the meadows
    To find my mother, Nature
    I flipped through the pages of the Bible
    To find my Father, God
    I sought out the love
    From my brothers and sisters, Mirakee
    My family became poetry
    My ancestry became love
    My roots became all the hope I dreamed of

    My genesis
    The source of my river
    The beginning
    My soul’s sun awakening
    Embedded seeds planted
    In the scriptures of writing
    Trees soaking up the nurturing
    Wisdom of prophetic poets

    Love became the deepest root
    Of my soul
    The place that I defined as home.

    #regrets #wod


    I regret
    Holding on to pain
    Embracing my soul
    With the darkened sounds of silence
    Belonging to the denial of forgiveness
    Under the capturing moonlight crescent.

    I feel the remorse
    Of fulfilling my heart with sorrow
    Darkened shadows against
    the colourful paints of Picasso
    Crossing out hope
    In my diary of tomorrow.

    I lament
    That I let the hues of the sunset
    Burn like embers upon my heart
    Allowing the candle of love
    To fade into the shadows alone.

    I grieve
    That I clipped the wings
    Of the butterfly’s ambition of life
    Withdrawing into
    the cocoon of darkness.

    Regret, remorse, grievance gone
    I reunite with life

    Painting the wind
    With the butterfly wings
    Of love and hope
    from the tranquility
    of my colourful poetic heart.

    I am the face of purity
    Baptized in the forgiveness of God
    The river of love flowing
    In the virtues of faith and hope

    The innocence of Eve
    Birthed in the Garden of Eden
    Created humble enough
    To become His servant
    Strong enough to carry His burdens

    Over mountains and through valleys
    My heart filled
    with the peace of green meadows

    I was created as a helper
    Under the rib of Adam
    To honour and raise
    The greatest treasure of all
    His children.

    I am the scars of labour hidden by grace
    I am tears of the earth overcome by faith
    I am one knee drop away from prayer
    His dust, His Image, His breath, His creation.

    I am a woman
    With a mission
    Defined by God’s purpose

    The heart of love
    The soul of charity
    The depth of faith
    The hope of humanity.

    Dreamy Clouds

    Dreamy clouds
    Capture my stare
    The same way I gaze
    Into your eyes
    Wishing to know
    All the mysteries in there.

    Your heart is like heaven
    Clouds depart
    Uncovering
    The stars that illuminate
    From your eyes.

    Dreamy clouds
    Under the moonlight
    Wishing your heavenly essence
    Into my life.

    Loyalty as deep as the ocean
    Waving through every emotion
    Of life’s treasured sands.

    Absorbing rays of the sun’s beauty
    While being held captive
    by the moon’s midnight calmness.

    Crab, cancer
    We ponder the answers
    To life, in our shell alone

    Protecting our family
    Loving our enemies
    Finding peace
    On the horizon of
    Kindness and love.

    Fearless
    My heart beats
    Faster
    and faster

    I am not sure
    that I am brave enough
    To endure the aftermath

    Of a world that is shaken
    Hearts broken
    Poverty rising
    Death tolling
    Covid aching
    Racial fighting
    Hatred
    Discrimination
    Illness
    Economies crashing
    Schools closing
    Children lost
    In a homeless world

    Lord, how much more can
    We as a world suffer from this pain?

    Yet, I am fearless
    I am brave.

    Just by saying Your name.

    I feel
    Forgotten
    All
    Alone
    in this corner
    of darkness

    Bubbled up
    in depression
    Tears of grief
    Still trying to accept this

    Our world’s regression
    Waiting on God’s interception
    The Most High’s loving expression

    To hold up the world
    In a bubble of protection
    To save each of us
    The lost and forgotten
    To show us salvation
    The corner where the
    Light seeps in from heaven
    The high hope of faith
    that was handwritten by the saints,
    the poets and prophets.

    I reach high in my bubble of prayers
    Tear drops that will soon disappear
    From the corner of my window
    Forgetting about sorrow
    Staring into hope
    and writing my way
    into the promise
    of a beautiful tomorrow.
