    the words
    ........The Words
    ................THE WORDS

    ON THE PAGE SET
    THE STAGE

    ACT III

    the words
    ........The Words
    .................THE WORDS

    COME FROM MY FATHER IN HEAVEN
    WHAT A BEAUTIFUL GIFT HE HAS
    GIVEN...TO

    AHHH ME NAHTAH

    the words
    ........The Words
    ................THE WORDS

    of my testimony
    may seem

    gruesome

    even a bit too

    personal

    BUT GOD!! put it in ME
    to bless and bring a

    Miracle

    to that man or woman
    living in that place

    can't find their way out~

    for me not to speak
    would be like...
    a slap in the face

    and a major disgrace to
    my Father in Heaven

    So long asGod
    Blesses ME

    with

    the words
    ........The Words
    .................THE WORDS

    of my life through POETRY

    yes I'll express and continue to do so
    in HIS name

    I profess

    these words
    .......These Words
    ................THESE WORDS

    HE GAVE ME TO BLESS.

    "to obey is better than sacrifice"....(1Sam 15:22)

    when you're given the words, it's your duty to speak!

    Keep sharing with us!

    YES!!!

    One of the most intriguing element of poetry is discovering the reason why the poet scribes....

    You my dear sistafriend are most intriguing
    Your scribes unravel mysteries which unlock others
    From their own torn lives....

    I am so grateful to your soulful scribes

    I have said this to you before and I will not hesitate
    to say it again...in you I see my former self...writing for the sake of healing wounds....grateful that all the bandages have finally been removed....soon yours will be too

    *obey*
