    ramblings from the hope chest...


    ...and on judgment day

    what will she do
    what will she say
    about the two
    little unborns
    she threw away?

    will the Lord
    see the pain
    her words
    can’t convey?

    will He
    understand
    her ignorance
    caused her
    to stray?

    she ponders
    these questions
    and kneels
    down to pray…

    My dear sista

    While you always come real...and you've developed a sort of trademark for flow that tends to soothe and heal...flow that always elevates and points us toward beauty in love...

    I have to say my first reaction to this piece was "STUNNED". You show me your guts here, Ms. A. I say that because these words describe so many sistas...I say that because I know the woman in your attic has lived enough life and seen enough joy and pain in and through the eyes of women....and men...the woman in your attic has shared enough laughter and cried enough tears to break it down and bring it to us real.

    I read this one again and identified in my own way. All I can say is keep bringing it to us real. I am feeling you.

    Amen

    I Can Answer A Resounding Yes

    This poem is a profound poetic lamentation. It should be framed.

    Though over 25 percent of all abortions commited in America are done by the sistahs, I know that on bended knee...God will forgive them if they ask. He doesn't pick and choose the sins he forgives. He died for all of them, therefore He forgives all of them.

    the heart is known...

    compassion to be given to a loving heart.

    first, forgive self.
    then, accept your forgiveness and be blessed.
