I am uniquely and unequivocally me. A mother of two sons, a wife, a caregiver, woman of God, not necessarily in that order. God is definitely the head and first of my life, because with out Him I would not be. I have been writing poetry since I was able to spell words and read. Most times as an outlet for what ever situation I was in at the time. My deepest desire has always been to write a story that will help someone;s journey be a lot easier. To heal the world with words, not destroy it with them. This is my journey to my destiny.

Do you really see me and what is hidden behind my smile?

Do you really care about the heart that beats inside?

So what if I’m not hood, or ghetto as some

So what if I’m overweight and my hair is short

Don’t hate on my upbringing because it’s not what you may think

Who cares if I get my hands and toes done?

For none of that stuff makes up the woman that lies within

The big dark brown eyes, the little ears, the pretty smile

The voluptuous breast, the big round booty, oh you feel me now

Not the long, thunderous brown legs, fingers or this big old nose

None of these things help to make up this woman’s worth


What lies within is a heart of gold

That would give you the world on a silver platter

If you believed in her and chased stars with her

Watched sunsets, and sunrise, listened to poetry, and Mozart

If you could cater to some of her needs at least pretend to care

Be her lover and her friend; tell her jokes even when darkness ends

Whisper sweet nothings just because, say I love you and not fear you’d fall

Take her to heaven at least once a week, treat her special and call her friend

Love her like she’s the only one, and hold her tight when were done

Pray with her, eat with her, sleep with her, and dance until morning comes

If only someone saw what lies within.
