GOLDEN (A Tribute)

Golden Her hair was golden Waves like the sea Eyes like sapphire Golden Her heart was golden Take you in Like her own Love you home Golden Words like honey Could wrap you up Make you feel wanted Golden Sunshine in her smile Mischief in her glance Open arms Those open arms Golden Like a [...]

Let Love……

Your love. Deeper than the darkest ocean. Touching my depths. Healing the wound that came when hearts turn away from you. Healing the hurt I never knew owned so much of my soul. It has to be deep, love,  to go down so far. To go down into the lost places. lost hope. lost love. lost sight. [...]

God is Not Mad at You

All my life I've dealt with feelings of being unlovable. In fact, I can't remember a time that I didn't feel that way about myself. But that's not the case anymore and I want to tell you how that came about. I was raised in religion. I thank God for that because it introduced me [...]

Across The Table

I don't want to climb a ladder I want to sit across a table Look into your eyes And commune with your heart No desire to scale a mountain But a garden, cultivate Be fruitful in strength and mercy Arms in jubilance with babes Sing into the midnight A lullaby of faith In God alone [...]

IN BETWEEN

I'm between. Between what I've been and what I'm becoming. It's a funny, awkward kind of place. A place of unknown. A place of just not sure, unfamiliar. Very unfamiliar. Before I turned back to what was known, comfortable and it was like that door was open still to turn to and now- I'm not [...]

MOTHER

This poem is about a woman trying to serve her family while the demons of the past haunt her. They spoke death and doubt to her. She mustered up the strength to raise a family in the midst of the mental onslaught with her Redeemer by her side. It may seem dark to some, but [...]

THE ROAD HOME

The road home is like a long yesterday I can’t forget A distant memory that’s constant, present Trying to revive some long ago A gift from days gone by. The road home has felt like a great returning But can’t seem to find my footing In the place that calls me The place of quiet, [...]

WRECKED

I met a lady quite lovely Yet outwardly some would say not A spirit soaring with purpose Is her spirit Her heart She is grateful So grateful But has nothing But a wheelchair and black filled garbage bags She lives on a sidewalk Her home Her place of belonging And she wrecked my life Simply [...]

HOPE CALLS OUT

Wide open spaces beckon Come breath Come sing The harsh cold wind blows in the distance A reminder The familiar A faint voice Weakened by my awakening Now a distance memory I can still feel it I can still taste the hopeless It's dark damp Moving farther and farther away From my present From my [...]
