It's My Turn ©


I woke up this morning to a new revelation
I am not forgotten
It's been a long time since I dared to chase my dreams
Fell many times but it seems
that falling down is part of the whole scheme of things

Falling ain't hard, but getting up is
And starting all over again
I see my future and I know that I win
Learning to wait and just be still
To hear your voice and walk in your will

I can see farther than my eyes can see
This revelation has totally consumed me
Time...time...time...friend or enemy?
There is a season and a time for all things
When my day comes I'm going to spread my wings
Fly high, soar, reach for the stars
On the other side of the rainbow, I'll even show my scares
It's the place where all things are possible
If you just believe in the promises and get ready for the day
When your dreams come true, there will be no delay

Time and season are the reason for the wait
Me and destiny have a predestined date, I won't be early or late
Woke up this morning to a new revelation...I am not forgotten
There's so much more that God has in store
Just waiting for my turn to soar

I'll Keep Waiting ©

I keep waiting
I keep waiting
Waiting on God to rescue me

I keep waiting
I keep waiting
Waiting on God to rescue me

He promised to help me
He promised to help me
Never to leave or forsake me

So I keep waiting
I keep waiting
Waiting on God to set me free

Abused as a child by the preacher
Neglected by my momma
Beaten by my husband

But I'll keep waiting
I'll keep waiting
Waiting on God to rescue me

Used and abused by men
seemed to be forgotten
But I keep waiting

Second husband worse than the first
sent by God
that really hurts

He promised to reward me for all my pain
and my life will never be the same

So I keep waiting
I keep waiting
Waiting on God to rescue me

Sickly children and poor health
He never left me by myself
Reached out and touched me with his tender hand

So I'll keep waiting
Keep right on waiting
Waiting on God to rescue me

He promised me that if I suffer with him
then I'll reign with him
So I'll keep waiting on the Lord to rescue me

I know after all the suffering and pain
God will show me his plan
he promised me my due season

So I'll keep waiting
I'll keep waiting
Waiting on God to rescue me

All the days of my appointed time
will I wait till my change comes

So I'll keep waiting
Keep right on waiting
Waiting on my change to come

Change the World ©

Manipulating women and emasculated men
Unhappy marriages and disobedient children

Seems like this kind of behavior makes the world go round
Not what we wanted it's just bringing us down

Working all day and night just like a man
But taking his place was never my plan

Got to do things different to see change
Priorities need to be rearranged

Where did we go wrong?
Forgive us Lord for what we have done

Can't keep this up too long.
We need change

Change the world with love
Only love can change the world

Got to do things different to see change
Priorities need to be rearranged

Need to rearrange our priorities
And change the world with love

Need to rearrange our priorities
And change the world with love

Can't keep this up too long
Change the world with love

Got to do things different to see change
Priorities need to be rearranged

Never Give up on Love ©

If I gave up every time it got too hard
If I ran away from pain
If I quit because nothing went right
or gave in to weariness
Then, I would just give up on love

And never experience your kiss

If I let bitterness eat away on the inside
If I remained angry and chose not to forgive
If I forget to laugh,
and take myself too seriously, refusing to live
Then you would run like hell when you met me

And never experience my kiss

If I learn from the pain of yesterday
If I decide to go on and live anyway
If I dry my tears and grow from the experience
Then I will know in my heart to
Never give up on love

Can't wait to meet you and experience true love's kiss

If you never give up on love
If you wait until it comes again
Then because of your last love, or lost love,
you will know when you find the best love
It's on the way and when it finds you it will stay

If you believe in love,
never give up it's worth the wait
This kind of love you don't want to miss
Can't wait to share our first kiss
'Cause we never gave up on love...

Never give up
Never give up
Never give up on love

Keep Dreaming

There comes a time when nobody believes in you
and you have to walk alone
Because the dream inside of you must remain hidden
until the day, the time, the appointed season

For your dreams to come true
you have to endure the testing of your faith
and remember all the dreams and intuitive thoughts
that brought you to this place

When there is no one else to lean on, or cry to
but you choose to hold on, fight on, continue
Then that small dream begins to come into fruition
And it grows and grows and blooms

It's bigger than you think, because it's your purpose
You were the one who waited in faith, persevered in trials,
longed in secret, and dared to keep dreaming
when it was only a feeling on the inside

And because you held on through all the storms
Your dream like a baby in the womb
pushed its way through until that predestined day
when you stepped into your purpose and your dream was born

You gave birth to your dream
Now is the time to do all you were created to do
Your struggle made you strong enough to see it through
Now you know dreams really do come true

There's so much more, you only scratched the surface
Your best days are ahead of you, more dreams are coming
bigger than the first, because when you had nothing
you dared to believe in one small dream and walk alone

Your lonely days are gone
You passed the tests, it's time to enter into your rest
He saved the best for last,
your latter will be greater than your past

Love is

It is the feeling I get when I see a rainbow
It is the song inside my soul when I think about you
It is the sound of birds singing in spring
The sun rising in the morning
It is my daddy's smile when I was a child

It is your touch when our first baby was born
It is the warmth of your caress
with my face upon your chest
Love is all these things and more

It is tenderness, a kind word, a helping hand
Words not spoken but understood
It is the look in your eyes when my heart was broken
Love is all these things and more

It is forgetting the hard times, the hurt and pain
and deciding to start over and live again
Love is more than romance
More than simple pleasure

Love is my choice to care about you
Even after all you put me through
I'm still in love with you
Love is forever

One day I will see you again my friend


Bloom ©

I sit
watching my days like clouds fading
from morning to evening

I sit wondering
where are my 
dreams, my sunbeams of promises?

I think 
who will listen to  my story?
who can I tell...
Someone stole my innocence long, long ago
A small unfolded rosebud sending out aromatic essence of bloom
wandering in the wind

Waiting...not expecting to be handled
Not wanting to be held and cast  aside
Cool winds whispering my name

I watched
as the sun spilled over the horizon
to caress my tender petals

Someone claimed my 
sweet breath too soon 
Fresh days of springtime

I was a spring garden
full of light, cool winds swaying, birds all in harmony
bees buzzing

I ran
so full of
expectancy and ecstasy

I ran
into the face of life
Too young to know what it would bring me
Hot summer days
dogs barking
fear running up my legs ringing loud in my head

I listened to
love songs
love poems
I listened
to soft words with clandestine meanings
Too young to know tender plants need room to bloom

Time to rise and be strong 
Somebody picked me 
when I was just a rosebud

I wonder
Can I grow from here?
Will winter overtake me?
I wonder 
can I be a beautiful rose
in Autumn?
I see crimson tides
peeking over blue horizons
pouring pure light all over me

I feel strong
Sweet, gentle perfume rolls off my
soft velvet petals

Penetrating the amber air
I’m in bloom

After All

After all the drama
after all the tears
I still love you after all these years

After all the days
of laughter and pain
My love for you still remains

When all is done
and my life carries on
I find that there is so much more to love, after all

I gave you all that I had to give
And you still left me
After all

Now I can live
I know there is someone
who will love me

with all my history
Loving you set me free
After all

Free to look a little closer
a little deeper
Inside myself

There I found when love fails
and lonely days turn to lonely nights
I'm still here, after all

True love found me
and set me free
now I know that

Love is good, after all
I found love, after all
I'm alive, after all

To love again, after all

Black Girl © - Part Two

You see in the garden of Eden when Adam and Eve made the choice
to no longer hearken to God's voice,
their once eternal bodies started to decay.
Only one command had God given to man to obey,
or there would be a price to pay.

Do not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
or death will be your consequence.
And every, man, woman, boy and girl
has been born into the death cycle ever since
that fatal day when Adam and Eve began to know, see, and feel
the knowledge of all things good and evil.

The first death experienced by the new born human race
was the murder of Abel the son of Adam and Eve,
by the hands of his twin brother, Cain.
From that day forward the human race would know
sin, sorrow, hatred and shame.
So Adam made love to his wife Eve to ease her pain.

Their son Abel was dead
and Cain to the wilderness had fled
from all who dared to avenge the death of his brother.
At this time men and women lived for hundreds of years
as they married and intermarried to populate the planet.
For God's initial purpose for man still stood in tack.
He created the earth for mankind to dominate.
That's a fact.

Eve conceived and gave birth to another son.
She named him Seth, for now that her godly seed Abel was dead
Seth was given to her by God in his stead.

Now back in the garden when Satan tempted man to sin.
God pronounced a curse upon all men and women.
The woman would be subject to her husband and bring forth children in pain.
And the earth would forever cause man's strength to wane.
By the sweat of your brow will you till the land, it will resist you, until it
brings you down to the ground from whence you came.
For dust you are and to the dust you shall return.

God cursed the earth to bring forth thorns, briers and weeds.
He cursed the serpent that Satan had hidden inside of when he spoke to Eve.
And He cursed Satan for his plan to deceive.
And you, Satan, will be crushed by the woman's seed,
for your part in this dubious deed.
Her seed shall crush your head and you shall bruise his heel.
This curse caused the planet to roll, rock and reel.

Satan set up Principalities in the regions of the air.
and plotted to rule God's creation from his evil lair,
Each Principality had control over appointed regions,
as they controlled men by harassing their souls with demons.
These demons entered the bodies of mankind by legions.
And God's creation became demented, ungodly, wicked indeed,
as Satan tried to contaminate every godly seed.
I must destroy the seed of the woman, for by her seed I am doomed.

So man grew more and more wicked and violent.
Until God looked at man and his condition caused him to repent.
I repent that I ever made man.
But God had a plan.
I will send a flood to destroy the wicked.
And I will repopulate the planet with one godly seed.

Now Noah the descendant of Seth was uncontaminated, upright, godly indeed.
Noah and his wife had three married sons.
So he preached to his wife and children and all who would listen.
Come into the ark because its going to rain
He preached the same message again and again.
And warned all to repent and come into the ark of safety
or bear the wrath of an angry God on that dreadful day when
the flood gates of heaven will open
and pour out a deluge upon the land.

Well you know the story.
Not one soul outside of Noah's family paid him any attention.
They cursed God and Noah and all of his children.
So God sent angels to gather ten of every clean beast in the field
and two of every unclean, male and female.
It was a glorious scene.
When all the animals came into the ark of safety as the flood gates of heaven
were torn open and God cried for fallen man.
Satan watched from his evil lair and laughed and laughed
because he thought he had won.
What Satan didn't realize is that God had a plan to once again restore fallen man.
By sending his Son.

And in the process of time a virgin named Mary
was told by an angel that the savior she would carry.
The seed of the woman who would crush Satan's head.
So Satan plotted and schemed as he yelled to his demons
I want him DEAD!
And Jesus the Son of God died on a cross on Golgotha's hill
His blood was shed and ran down like a mighty stream,
it was all part of God's perfect will.
When Satan and his imps saw it they began to curse and scream.

The blood of Jesus traveled through time and eternity
and its power set the captives free.
As they became son's and daughters of God.
And on the head of the enemy they would trod.

On the third day Jesus was resurrected.
This is certainly not what Satan expected
when he plotted to have him betrayed, beaten and killed.
He had no idea of the harvest the resurrection would yield.
Jesus told his followers to preach the good news until the whole earth was filled
with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
And they preached until one day the good news made it to me.

A little black girl living in the ghetto,
from a broken home and a broken life
whose daddy was a preacher who beat his wife.
But God had a plan.

To be continued

Fifth Love

My first love was a joke
he was just trying to score
My second love was full of passion
but made me feel like a whore

They say third times a charm
but that third love caused emotional harm
My forth love pushed me to my breaking point
But I made it through

Fifth love is my best love
So glad I finally met you

Don't give up on love
Press through the pain
When true love comes around
You will never be the same

So glad you're my fifth love
Cause I learned some things along the way
Learned to walk away from bad love
And not settle for a life of pain

When the right man comes your way
You will never be the same

Fifth love is my best love
So glad I finally met you

Don't give up on love
Press through the pain
When true love comes around
You will never be the same

So glad I met you baby
Glad you came my way
Your love is the best love
So glad you're here to stay
