I Am In My Finest Moment

Posted in Life on April 8, 2015 by Poetic Flow

RRTake a look at me now.
I bet you never thought
You would see me
Standing here with both feet
Planted on solid ground.

I bet you never thought
You would see
Me walking tall
With my head held high
With my confidence
Outshining your brightest day.
How stupid do you feel thinking
You won over my strength?

Those days you tried to keep me down,
When my tears flowed like
Raging rivers,
I bet you never thought
You would see the days of calm,
When even the thought of
Hating you never crossed
My heart, body, mind and soul.
That I can step to you and smile,
Hold out my hand of forgiveness
And never breathe your name
From that moment forward.

RR2Because I am in my finest moment.
Where life has humbled me,
I have grown into a woman
Who has found her self-worth.
I don’t beg for comfort of man
When I have God on my side
To keep me lifted in his divine graces.
I don’t cry over those who
Found it necessary to walk away
From me because my life
Was not to their satisfaction.

They missed the best part of
Who I am.
The best part of the story
Of what my life has become.
And I don’t chase after them.
From crawling on my hands and needs,
From nearly becoming a part of
The street elements when I had nowhere to turn,
I stood up and cried one last cry,
And God heard me and put me
Where he would have me be.
Yeah, this is the part they missed.
When success would become a better
Part of me.
When sleeping in my car
Was no longer a choice.

Hunger become a distant memory,
And I was no longer cold and scared
Of what was out there facing me.
I can put on my clothes and not
Feel a shamed of who I am.
I can walk down the street and feel
The sun shining warmly in my face.
I am not lonely
Because I don’t fear loneliness.
And I don’t long for conversation
Because sometimes,
Talking to God is the only
Conversation I need.

I am not defeated.
I did not let the struggles
Of my life defeat me.

Tomorrow

Posted in Life on May 5, 2014 by Poetic Flow

I carry the weight
Of uncertainty
On my shoulders every day.
The bricks of weariness
Strapped to my feet
With each step I take.

In the shadows you will
Find me hiding from
Loneliness conversations
That tip toe through my dreams
At night.

I looked to my mother
For her comforting spirit
To find she’s abandoned me
To the valley of lost souls.
To never look upon my face again.
To never speak my name.
To never be reminded of my existence.
I am here alone.

I reach out to the Heavens
To save me from despair
These days have brought me.
And through the tears I’ve shed
Came the sound of my soul
Ripping through my heart,
Tearing my body apart,
To break free from the misery
I have long suffered,
With the sound of thunder
Roaring through the sky.

In the field of Calla Lilies,
Of white pleasance and peace,
My body lay still…
Letting a newness of life
Overcome me.
Being lifted from this body
To be reborn to a world in time
Where music plays of a
Glorified paradise.

Angels dance around me,
Welcoming me to this place of
Calm surroundings.
And my mind is suddenly at peace.
Happiness is at the front door
Of my today, tomorrow, and forever.
And all my wounds
From my days of suffering and sorrow
Have all healed and gone away.

I kick off the shackles
From my feet
Of yesteryear’s past
To kneel down
To kiss the ground of
The path to my freedom of life.

My voice will ring freedom’s peace,
Blasting all those who were against me
To come falling to their knees
Begging for my forgiveness,
Only to come at a price.

I bring you the newness
Of this life.
I bring you the newness
Of me.
Come into this place
Where I reign supreme
In the days I walk
The roads of eternity,
Or you don’t come at all.

Let your eyes
Look upon me.
I am still standing.
Where I was once broken,
I have been made whole.
To learn how to love and be loved.
To live in the light
Of God’s promise to me.
To dance to a new tune
Of tomorrow’s future.

No more tears will I shed
For those who break my heart.
And try to tear down my spirit.
Into the burning pits of hell
Shall they be banished
To live out their days of sins
Committed against me.

Goodnight days of past
That has taught me well.
Into tomorrow shall I ride
On the tail of a shooting star
Into the light of tomorrow’s future,
Where only fading memories
Of you shall remain,
And tomorrow I will wake with the sun
On my face
Never to live in the
Dark days of sorrow again.

Dear Diary, Part I: Love’s Funny Games

Posted in Dear Diary Poems, Life, Love & Romance on December 20, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Dear Diary,
Love has gone and played a trick on me.
Making me love him more today
Than in the days that have long since
Past and gone.
Up until that night he took me into his arms,
I had forgotten what it felt like to be held by him.
There was the passionate sensation
That flowed through me
With each time his lips touched mine,
A sense of renewed love and faith
That our lives can go on in one accord
From these days going forward.

We have suffered such heartache,
Have seen so many tears fall,
That these last days
Has made the time we have left
Here on Earth
Worth fighting for.

We have recognized our wrong doings,
Have struggled through the days of unhappiness,
Only to find our way back
To the guiding light
Of unending happiness
For the rest of our golden years.
And for the rest of my life
I will hold his hand
Through the good times.
Through the bad times.
Through the times
When life feels uncertain.

He has missed me
Into a broken heart
And loved me into
A new salvation.
He has glorified our existence of love,
To where I have begun
Worshiping the air he breathes.

I find myself drifting off into space,
Lost in dreams of him
Taking center stage in my heart,
And dancing minuets on my soul.
It makes me forget why I ever wanted to go away.
It makes me forget why I ever wanted him
To let me go.

Love has played funny games with my emotions,
Caught in his tenderness
And sweet caress
That I fell in love with him all over again.
He whispered we always loved each other
Just needed to express it
In ways we understood,
And in that single moment I wanted to cry,
But my heart was so touched,
That I just soaked up the words he spoke,
Blanketing my heart,
To carry them for as long as
We walk hand in hand to the end of time.

Talking to the Moon

Posted in Life, Love & Romance, Pain, Poetry on February 26, 2013 by Poetic Flow

Pondering the thoughts
Of yesterday’s time.
The wind blowing around
The thoughts in mind of
Where in this place we are.
Somewhere on Lovers Lane
That love I held strong in
My soul for you has become displaced.
And thus I sit here
Talking to the moon
Trying to find where it is
I lost my way.

There is no doubt
In these feelings I feel
That I do still love you from
The bottom of my heart,
But when my eyes envision your face
From a distance when you are not here,
I don’t see the same man I loved
When we first walked down
Flower paved roads.
And thus I sit here
Talking to the moon,
Trying to find where it is
We go from here.

I will never ask you
If your love for me has changed.
I am not accustom to the words
Fear and rejection for they
Hold me captive to my own misery.
You once gave me
What the world could never give me,
Your undying love and devotion,
Your affection that grounded me
And made me whole,
Your warm embrace that protected me,
Your tender kiss that soothed me,
Erasing my troubles for just that moment.
I never feared loneliness because
You were always there,
Your songs of faith and devotion
Sheltered me from those who
Never cared for me.

We were one in the eyes of those
Who would see us.
Our laughter filled the air
Soaring on the tail end of the wind.
My heart used to skip a beat
Whenever you weren’t around,
And I slept sleepness nights
If you weren’t at my side.
That was when you and I were one.
When love was something we had
To hold on to.
And thus I sit here
Talking to the moon
Fighting back the tears,
Regretting the days that have
Pushed us a part.

If in a day,
You want to blame me for the missteps
Our love has taken.
Let me lay down my pride and selfishness,
And take the beatings your words
Shall give me.
The harshness only you know how
To inflict on a woman’s soul.
If in this time your forgiveness
Goes unfounded,
Then let me go into a world of the unknown
Where I will not back track to find you,
Only to keep moving forward
Into happiness bliss
To find where it is I truly belong.
Just don’t keep me here
To remind you of those things you’ve lost
Because if you open your eyes
You are a reminder of the things I’ve lost 
That time can never replace.

And as I sit here
Talking to the moon,
I can only make one simple wish
To ask if in this lifetime it is not
Meant for you and I to share in
What we’ve wanted for so long,
That we equally set each other free
To go into our own
Corners of different worlds
To be where it is we truly want to be,
To do what it is that makes us whole,
To not drag out a togetherness
Built on false pretenses.
