Through your quill I can feel
Your prurience to empower
What a joy it is to hearken
To your promulgation
Of experience and divine revelation

I’m enthralled by your articulation
It’s a mental invitation to your habitation
And I must confess
Over the years
You have experienced maturation.
And I enjoy every sip
Of your ballpoint, felt-tip

My fire inside
Won’t let me fade out or die
It hates the dark
So Imma continue to fight
Dim yours if you must
But I gotta leave on my light

This piece was written with a beautiful man of God {Harold D. Johnson}.
Thank you Harold for always completing my sentences...


Sins sweet allure
Is now a festering sore
Off your soul it is feeding
Gnawing at the very essence of your being
Your spirit has experienced offense
No longer do filters and repellents provide defense
Contaminating you with ungodly agents
Inserting the devil’s stench
You are losing your sweet fragrance.

Sins sweet lies
A bitter tasting honey
Embraces my broken spirit
Rendering my praise mute
If the Lord is calling
I can’t hear it
My heart has hardened
To the Truth
I want to pray
But don’t see the use
So far gone
My feet have slipped
Unable to get a grip
Can’t shake this affliction
This addiction
From the son of perdition
My soul sails lifeless
Thru the world
Bound by an identity crisis
Tell me I’m still yours...

Because I don’t want this life anymore
Receive me back into your fold
My past ways are stale and old
Show me how to put on the new
Even if it means that I be tried
Do what you gotta do
I know to be bonafide
I must be purified

Lord, my spirit is willing
But my flesh is weak
I’ve become a secular freak
Who eats foul meat
Remove this stall of sin
Holy Spirit reign within

Wash me
Let your rejuvenating rain
Cascade over my soul
Remove the stains
The pain
Make me whole
I know
Again and again
I strayed
So stay with me...
Stay in me
Because without You
Is so

Guard Your Heart

I was sitting at my desk early this morning waiting for the server to be restored and these thoughts came to my spirit. I want to share this with all the women I know because I know it is a word from the Lord to me and other women who have battled or is battling with decisions that need to be made about the male companions you keep. You want to be taken to another level but something keeps holding you back. You are keeping the wrong company. God wants to restore unto all that was taken from you and more but he can't if his ways you still ignore...

Here's the poem, receive it, believe it and act on it today!

You stroke her mind with your charm
Giving off the impression that from you there is no harm
Sweet lies of nothingness bliss is what you bring
Insincere and misleading songs are what you sing.
In the heart of a hurt but hopeful woman, your name rings.
She hears but doesn’t hear
Your words are mellifluous to her fragile ears
She sees but doesn’t see
Her loneliness and desperation disables her from seeing clear
She fears but doesn’t fear
Therefore, she embraces you more, thinking that you really care
As spiritual transgression transpires
She befits what the flesh desires
Inveigled by a seemingly good light
This beautiful woman walks away from what’s right
To someone that is just pleasing to her immediate sight
Daintily you caress her with a soft stroke
Careful not to be forceful because you know the wrong key
Will alarm her and send her away
The setting is fixed and perfect flowers have been picked
You lead her to your dead room that you call the living room
Surrounded by aromatherapy she smells yet doesn’t smell
Unable to discern that she’s inhaling toxic fumes
She breathes in smog air into what is spirit filled
Not knowing that her soul you are out to steal
Cautiously you play a tune for you two to commune
That clean vessel is no longer fine-tuned
What was once tailored for the Holy Ghost to indwell
Has now been shared by a stronghold who seeks to prevail
His intent is to conquer and destroy this host
So that in hell with him her soul can burn and roast
However, even in the midst of her dealings
She is alerted by an uneasy feeling
The Holy Spirit still lives within and loudly reminds her
That sin must not reign within
As she listens to this inner voice
She knows that she must make a choice
She now sees that her soul is what this man is out to take
But Oh! The mercy of God is still there when we make mistakes
He always provides a way of escape.
The question is “Will she take it?”

Ladies, if this hits home I beckon with you to listen
Get on your knees now and start repenting…
Stand strong don’t be led astray
Because life without the Holy Ghost ain’t living.

I am woman
You are man
We are different yet still equally we stand
I am no more phased than you are with that common cliché “I must know my place”
I am a woman and I walk in my designed state.
I don’t need permission to be
I am what I am, I am woman, and I am rightfully me
My purpose is to be what God has called me to be
In Christ there is no need for competition when you know your position.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Meticulously and uniquely tailored for success,
I am woman, an elegant representation of God’s best.
I am a live, walking woman.
Whatever I am given is multiplied.
Don’t treat me as inferior because your purpose & full potential is what you’re undermining.
Embrace and support me, you know too
My leadership and strength is awe-inspiring.
Were we not both made in God’s image?
Don’t you know that I was made for you?
When you oppress me and seek to keep me silent you only deny the truth.
I am sent to help you fulfill God’s vision.
Don’t be duped by denial and ego’s which only cause division.
My being and abilities were bestowed unto me to help man.
I too am a product of God’s purposeful plan.
I am a natural born leader just as you.
No one can take that away.
I am more than just a life-giver and a pretty face.
There is more to me than just fancy array.
Yes, I have emotions, after all, I was made to feel.
I do not apologize for them; it is what enhances my appeal.
When you come to understand the beauty of a woman.
You’ll find that she is a reflection of you.
Made not to be ahead or behind but to stand by your side.
Yes that is where I am to reside.
I dare you to discover your destined lover and throw away your pride.

Your plan of demise
Has been recognized
Oh, Yes!
Someone saw through your disguise

Woe unto thee
For those who seek to oppress me
I got ten times the love to show
That will outweigh your hate
Revenge is for the Lord
He’ll determine your fate

You and your lame crew
Always talking bout what you goin do
Just a bunch of talk-a-too’s
That never follow through

Woe unto thee
For those who seek to oppress me
I got ten times the love to show
That will outweigh your hate
Revenge is for the Lord
He’ll determine your fate

I pity you fool
Still you haven’t a clue
Other’s see; why can’t you?
You strutting around with a sign that reads “The Devil’s Dung”
You addicted…God help your soul …
Cus Satan got you sprung.
You have no idea of your present state
Your only skill is hate
… walking reprobate

Woe unto thee
For those who seek to oppress me
I got ten times the love to show
That will outweigh your hate
Revenge is for the Lord
He’ll determine your fate
