"Father and Daughter"

When he realized he was going to be a father
He stayed up for two days and with sleep he did not bother

This was something new to him in his young life
He wondered if that made her mom his wife

He taught her everything that he knew
Although not right at times, what ever he did she did to

She looked up to him as her fearless leader
She saw him stand his ground and he was no pleader

He showed her how to show she had compassion
And wear her blackness as a regal, fearless fashion

It did not take long for him to forget the act
Do not ponder this notion because it is one of those facts

When two dogs get together and make a baby
The girl is considered a bitch and never a lady

This is the story of my Quincy and Basha
If you thought this was about humans, I got ya

So do not ponder this any farther
Quincy and Basha are the father and daughter

Poetic Passages
Proverbs 23:7
As he thinks in his heart so is he

Proverbs 23:9
Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the
wisdom of thy  words

II Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith and not by sight
Step in My World
Step in my world and you will see
All the things that makes me –me

Notice the smile that extends to my eyes
But my search for the Lord, is what makes me wise

All my help comes from the Lord
I study His ways and depend solely on His word

Amazing grace sets this sinner free
Jesus Christ died just for me!

I am just a normal girl
Is what you will see when you step in my world

My Windows

My windows have been privy to many things
I have seen rainbows and sunshine
Darkness and death
Weddings and divorces
Poverty and wealth
I have seen accidents and planned events
Losses and victories
Affairs and fidelity
Crimes and mysteries
My windows have been privy to many things
Except the man of my dreams

"The Dedication"
This one is dedicated to the man who said he loves me
Told my friends he would do anything for me
Yea, anything but love me unconditionally

Was I the wife for your convenience by day
Receiving many accolades for your good choice as they say
What a beautiful, God fearing, dedicated lady
While you played in darkness calling someone else your baby

This one is dedicated to the man who said he loves me
Told my friends he would do anything for me
Yea, anything but love me unconditionally

Blamed for your shortcomings makes you sound like a wimp
Taking my money as if I were a whore and you a pimp
Not giving me credit for anything I had done
Thank God I did not birth you, I would hate to call you son

This one is dedicated to the man who said he loves me
Told my friends he would do anything for me
Yea, anything but love me unconditionally

As time goes by, you may take a second look
Thank God that- that was all that you took
I am left with patience,long suffering, kindness and meekness
Sugar, spice, strength, compassion, and sweetness

This is dedicated to the man who said he loves me
Told my friends he would do anything for me
Yea, anything but love me unconditionally

"Strength and Beauty"
A woman’s beauty is:
In her gentle character, the
softness of her touch and melody
from her lips
Not in the persuasion of her
words, the cunningness of her
look or the movements of her hips
A man’s strength is:
In the love from his heart, the
kindness of his deeds and stride
in steps
Not in the stiffness of his hood,
craftiness of his lies or the
secrets that are kept

"Real Beauty"
There is a beauty that
transcends throughout the age
of time,
no wrinkle or scar,
and not even death can change
the impact of mans or woman’s
character
I hope that a beautiful character
is what is seen in me

"Now, Perhaps I Dance"
I feel trapped
Money strapped
Phone tapped
Perhaps, perhaps

Ain’t it a shame
You’re still the same
I’m not to blame
Insane, insane

Think you’re boss
Final cost
Love lost
I’m sauce, I’m sauce

You had your chance
To take a stance
Now I freelance
And dance, and dance

Brand new year
No more fear
I’m out of here
I cheer, I cheer

You will accrue
The things you do
Good bye to you
Boohoo, boohoo

“Never Fill the Void”
God prepared me for my mother’s death many years prior
Although I am shame to say it now, then I wished He was liar

I enjoyed the weekly rituals of the three of us going to the stores
Yet- in the dreams the Lord gave to me, my mom was not with us any more

My daddy would be driving along and I would be sitting in my place
As we talked and laughed, we then noticed where my mom used to sit was an empty
space

Since the death of my mom, for a while it was just me and my dad
Although I was the youngest, I knew my mom’s death left a void and daddy very sad

My daddy was a healthy man, retired and had it going on
Although my sister protested it, I did not think he should be alone

I went off to college and she returned to the house
I wonder if this prevented my daddy from having another spouse

One lady in particular seemed to bring my daddy some happiness in his life
I believe he would still be alive today if she had been allowed to be his wife

I know no one else could have the same relationship that he and my mom had built
I hate thinking that he refused companionship after she died because of some kind of guilt

Well, some times things happen and we can not explain the ins and outs or how
My daddy died without marrying again or moving on and we all live our lives now

Husband, wives, sisters, brothers and other family when death happens try to stay
together and be on one accord
Allow that person who survives to move on in their life and just know that no one else can
ever fill that void!

Not even you,

“Don’t Bother to Look Any Farther”

Psalm 38:9
All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you.
May as well be honest with the Lord because He knows the secret things you
do

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Have you met a person yet who is as nice in the end as they were in the start?

Matthew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things
shall be added to you.
Search the scriptures and learn of Him and you will find this is nothing new

Proverbs 8:17
I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
God does not change, try loving Him and you will see

Jeremiah 29:13
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
A love you can trust with commitment and devotion and you will be the cause
if you part

Matthew 11:29
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
How can you resist a God who is so loving, kind, gentle and meek and willing
and able to carry your load?

Don’t bother to look any farther!

I would not be who I am today if I had not gone through what I did yesterday-I am here-God allowed it ;therefore, it was o.k.

"To the Men"
This one is dedicated to men who love their families
Those men who fear the Lord and do get on their knees

How can I go any farther without mentioning these men?
These are they who ask for forgiveness whenever they sin

You can see them leaving for work as they support their own
These are men who lead out in making a house a home

They honor their wives showing great love and respect
They seek to live peacefully with men and without regrets

This one is dedicated to men who love their families
Those men who fear the Lord and do get on their knees

Not a moment goes by where these men are not a good example
Look at their lives closely and notice their blessings are ample

When someone is in need, they are always there to offer help
These men love in immeasurable ways though their love is felt

Their faces express peace and their countenances are like fine gold
The Christ within them and beam in their eyes is a sight to behold

This one is dedicated to men who love their families
Those men who fear the Lord and do get on their knees

Yes, this is dedicated to you

“Women in the Ministry”

I am a woman in ministry and for me there is no other choice
For, I will not allow the stones to speak for me and use my voice

Is there such a man who can understand my plight?
As He has called me to the ministry and into His light

Is there such a man who can see the vision as what I must do?
And know that it is God who directs my path and it is not to be moved

Is there such a man who can support me and stand by my side?
A man who can hold his head up high as God is our guide

Is there such a man who can hold me at the end of the day?
After I stand before the people and have said what God said to say

I am a woman in ministry and for me there is no other choice
For, I will not allow the stones to speak for me and use my voice

Is there such a man who would want to benefit from such a treasured gem?
He must remain faithful and minister to me so that my light will never dim

Is there such a man who can be obedient to God as not to harm His anointed?
This is a man who understands to everything there is a season and time appointed

Is there such a man who will cover me as I am a woman and have wants and needs?
This is the man who sees he in my eyes be it in a crowded room or only he and me

Is there such a man who can be with me until the end of time until God allows rest?
Perhaps there is, perhaps not: obedience is better than sacrifice and God knows best

I am a woman in ministry and for me there is no other choice
For, I will not allow the stones to speak for me and use my voice

So, I will wait for Him

"In a Moment"

In a moment you could fall in love
In a moment you could start a hug

In a moment you can show you are kind
In a moment you can begin to unwind

In a moment you can steal a kiss
In a moment you can be missed

In a moment things can be so sweet
In a moment your heart could skip a beat

In a moment you can be filled with bliss
In a moment you can feel like this

Like you are falling in love

Luke 19:39-40

39
And some of the Pharisees from
among the multitude said unto
him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
40
And he answered and said unto
them, I tell you that, if these
should hold their peace, the
stones would immediately cry out.
Do you really want the stones praising God in
your
place?




Be the Godly man you are supposed to be
Love and protect, but do not uncover me

We start out saying we will keep God first
In the future, I should not expect to be hurt
I love the Lord and intend to stay on track
I expect the man for me to watch my back
If I am in error, he should turn me around
He should lift me up and not put me down

Be the Godly man you are supposed to be
Love and protect, but do not uncover me

He who finds a wife, finds a good thing
Be obedient to the Lord or end up suffering
I am the weaker vessel as the Lord said so
If not able to honor me, then you should go
If you are the kind of man who is a player
Consequences of all deeds manifest later

Be the Godly man you are supposed to be
Love and protect, but do not uncover me

God has commanded how to treasure such a jewel
Be the Godly man instead of breaking all the rules
I am a woman who seeks to please the Lord
No sampling, do not touch if you can not afford
God is a jealous God as it has already been said
Keep immoral actions undone- try thinking ahead

Be the Godly man you are supposed to be
Love and protect, but do not uncover me

Guard what is in your heart as well as your mind
As the leader, this will help keep us both in line
I will always respect you and love you as no other can
If God allows me to be yours and you to be my man
I am the weaker vessel and my nature is to nurture
Do not violate my body and take away my virtue

Be the Godly man you are supposed to be
Love and protect, but do not uncover me

Please baby, keep me covered

Psalms 84: 11

For the LORD God is a sun and
shield: the LORD will give grace
and glory: no good thing will he
withhold from them that walk
uprightly.
I would rather be a step behind God- keeping with his plan than go before Him and
hoping later that he will fix mine.

"Blown Away"

Selectively imprisoned -purposely born free, future will not reveal it
Lost dreams- nightmares real -purpose driven life I will never gear it
Continual hunger -overly fed- I'm all in but have nothing left to give it
Dark deck-bad hand dealt-I cannot request the Maker to re- deal it

Harsh wind blows against the chill of dark night, but I can't feel it
Autumn leaves crackle beneath black cat paws, but I can't hear it
Stench of rotting back alley trash can garbage, but I can't seal it
Lovers love, children born, new year’s celebrated, but I'm not near it

Path is done- none to lead or follow, no chances for me to steer it
Soul ill, body -abused, heartbroken, mind destroyed, I'll never heal it
Harsh words spoken- bitter angry actions hurt, and I can't clear it
Hatred guilty-revenge evil, I am convicted and can never appeal it

From my wayward life
blown away
by my last victim ~
who witnessed to me?
