    you've been blessed beyond compare
    it is your responsibility to give and share
    you have no choice you must convey
    what the Spirit has given to light our way
    showing us all how things should be done
    providing hope and comfort to the least one

    because you're here i have no doubt
    God is present in our house
    giving words from the spirit on high
    to warn and comfort for the day is nigh
    that peace is scarce throughout our land
    and very few offer a helping hand

    yes ... you've been given a task to do
    from the moment your mother conceived you
    every experience every mountain and valley
    preparing you to travel the darkest of alleys
    oftentimes necessary to go through alone
    who among us is willing to carry this stone

    it is a rock, heavy, a weighty burden to bear
    we will not find many for they're not aware
    they cannot do it they've not been prepared
    strength such as this is very rare
    flowing deep in a spirit way down in a soul
    with power to heal, make whole and console

    don't be dismayed if all seems for naught
    that some days leave you feeling distraught
    as though your words and deeds are not even seen
    for the time will come when we'll all be convened
    and everyone's due will be given to them
    and you'll be sat on the right side of Him

    then and only then you'll be able to rest
    lay down the burden placed on your chest
    there will be many that you never knew
    because of your sacrifices they made it through
    rejoicing that God had someone so true
    willing to do what was required of you

    :heart:

    Destee, so profound. This is a prayer, a prescription for life, and a really amazing poem. WONDERFUL words for us all to take to heart and soul and do our best with.

    you wore that burden...and look what you've done
    provided a home...to house the weary ones
    took up the task...that GOD has given you
    shared with others...the light HE gave you

    a weighty burden...i second that one
    but you've worn it well...and smiled with the fun
    of giving to others...a joy never known
    i love you, Queen Mother...for all that you've shown

    patience
    love
    a race form of perfection
    grace
    humility
    a quiet perception
    of how things should be...in the most perfect of worlds
    such a beautiful woman...AND I LOVE YOU, my gurl.

    I THANK YOU, Ms Destee...for being true to your cause
    outlining your gifts...to me...and to all
    for you are the one...who've given much in return
    taken up the banner...from which others should LEARN.

    i'm learning.:)
