When I was in prison

When I was in prison I did not have any place to turn for support. No one visited me, but there were a few faithful servants of the Lord who faithfully wrote me letters. My mother was one of those servants. Since I have been out of prison I have not been able to establish work here that's why I am pleading for your help today. I am asking you to partner with me and help my efforts in buying a used picked up truck so that i can not only provide for myself, but also provide for others in need. God bless you thank you for your support. I am sharing a favorite bible scripture I memorized while in prison. I pray it touches your heart like it did mine!





Psalm 142


"I cry aloud to the Lord;
I lift up my voice to the Lord for mercy.
I pour out before him my complaint;
before him I tell my trouble.
When my spirit grows faint within me,
it is you who watch over my way.
In the path where I walk
people have hidden a snare for me.
Look and see, there is no one at my right hand;
no one is concerned for me.
I have no refuge;
no one cares for my life.
I cry to you, Lord;
I say, “You are my refuge,
my portion in the land of the living.”
Listen to my cry,
for I am in desperate need;
rescue me from those who pursue me,
for they are too strong for me.
Set me free from my prison,
that I may praise your name.
Then the righteous will gather about me
because of your goodness to me."

God is Real!

This is a poem called "God is real". Its about faith in God! Many say there is no God and Jesus did not exist! But the question is what do you believe?



The God of Is-Real

O Lord, people are saying You are just a prophet or just an imaginary tail,
they say no man ever died and came back from hell.
Some say “there’s no God” and that I worship You in vain,
they say if You were real You would answer when they call Your name.
Lord, I know You are real because only You can make lighting, rain, and thunder,  but why others can’t see this is what makes me wonder?

“Behold, whoever asks anything in
My name is not asking in vain,
to give man a sign was one of the reasons I came.
All the things I did, I told man to write them in a book,
but unless a man is born again,
he cannot see a sign even when he looks.
I showed man one sign when I walked on the sea,
but many of them still doubted and did not believe in Me.
There was once a man named Nicodemus
who came to Me in the night,
he could not see the Kingdom of Heaven
though it stood right before his sight.
Man honors Me with his lips,
but not with their heart,
they are just as blind as Nicodemus was
when he came to Me in the dark.
The Kingdom is like the wind because
you cannot see where it goes,
but the wind can be felt whenever it blows.
O ye of little faith, even if
I performed a miracle this very hour,
The self righteous would not  believe God’s great power.
Can man make the color of the sky?
Or can he make the clouds that pass by?
Can man make the birds and bees?
Or can he make the flowers, grass or trees?
Can man hold up the sun and cause it to burn?
Or hold the earth in his hand and make it turn?
Can he make the moon and stars in the sky?
For these reasons, a man most be born again before he die.
Furthermore, I make the blind see and the sick healed,
and by faith My people know that I Am real!”

Job 38-39, Matthew 15:30-31; 16:4-19, Mark 6:49, John 5:24-27, 14:13-14, II Corinthians 5:7

Inspired by the Holy Bible

My first poem I wrote in prison

This prison poem is one I wrote while in #prison. I was very hurt and discouraged about being locked up and how I was convicted to prison. It was as if I was a murderer or rapist. I prayed and asked God why? He said if the laws of man could convict and sentence Him to death then surly I had no chance, but He also said He would deliver me so the world can see that He can deliver those who trusts and believe in Him!                            




Sentence to Die

When I first broke the law,
I had never did any time,
I was ignorant about the judicial system,
and they convicted me of an outrageous crime.
I had no money to pay an attorney to advocate my case,
so I testified to the court asking for mercy and grace.
I fooled myself by thinking everything will be fine,
“just plead guilty” was the only thing came to mind.
“I’m sorry your honor about this crime”, 
but there was no mercy, 
I was sentence and had to pay a huge fine.
But thousands of innocent people are also 
unjustly judged and tried, 
some suffer greatly where the law is unjustly applied.
I prayed hard about these things, I know God heard,
because He shared with me a very special word…
“Do thou not remember when I was prosecuted,
judged, and tried?
They charged Me with speaking blasphemy,
but everyone knows they lied.
I did not need an attorney because
the truth speaks for itself,
but they said I had no evidence to support my story
and sentenced me to death. I told the truth,
but the prosecutors turned it into a lie,
I had many witnesses but they still sentenced Me to die.
Wherefore, thou shall know the truth about the laws of man,
thou shall be prosecuted and convicted
without ever taking the stand.
But I shall deliver the captives so the world can see,
that I can deliver those whose trusts and believes in Me.”

Isaiah 37:20, John 7:51, John 8:15. I Tim 1:8-10

                 Inspirational and Spiritual Poetry

We all need inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes just a kind word can be a blessing and it can help us get  through our darkness hour!! During those struggling times, I try to find some inspiring words to share and comfort. A good encouraging word can turn someones life around.

"He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted and proclaim LIBERTY to the captives."
Isaiah 61:1

                                  My Testimony 

I was born and raised in Detroit MI. I grew up in an unstable home. My father physically and mentally abused my mother. His abusiveness had an adverse effect on me as well as my siblings. It caused homelessness and a lot of mental anguish. It also caused a great deal of hardship and grief.

As a result, I did not attend school regularly. I developed a leaning disability. I did not like going to school. I could not read and comprehend like other kids in elementary. I struggled though middle school and eventually dropped out in the 9th grade.

 I did not get involved in any criminal activity during this time, but I wasn’t doing anything constructive with my life either. I was not interested in sports or anything else that would make my life better.

 I began smoking marijuana at around sixteen years old. I tried alcohol, but didn’t like the taste or the feeling of being drunk. So I stuck with smoking weed until I meet crack in 1984.

 My life quickly grew out of control. I lied, cheated, and stole to support my crack habit. My only purpose in life was to get high. I lost friends and family members trust and respect. Getting high was all that mattered to me.

 At twenty-seven, I committed my first felony that lead me to prison. It was one of the worse experience s of my life. I was completely lost and did not know or understand just how serious things were.

 As result of my insanity, I went to prison several more times. My last visit was indeed the lowliest and darkest periods in my life. I lost all hope about myself. Despair became my best friend as I sit in the cold jail cell. I thought of ways to end my life because I did not want to go through the pain and suffering anymore. But at my lowest moment, something happened. The Lord came and touched my heart and gave me a reason to continue on.

Today, I use my experience to help inspire and uplift others. I want my poems to glory God and give encouragement and inspiration to the "Brokenhearted"
