                                  A Storm From Hell

                               This is a true story I’m going share with you today,
it about survival and it went this way. 
In a remote region of the world not very long ago,
I survived a violent storm of rain, hail, sleet and snow.
I was on tropical island: ponds, flowers, and trees, 
it was perfect weather conditions--  
sunshine with a nice warm breeze. 
But one day, the sky turned dark and high winds blew, 
not only did it rain, but it also hailed too.
 It was so strange seeing this bad weather appear, 
especially since this happened during a perfect time of the year. 
First, I heard thunder and lightning then came freezing rain,
before I got through that sleet and snow also came. 
I was very scared when the rain turned into snow,
I sought for shelter, but there was no place to go.
I assure you that this isn't some fairy tail,
I actually was in this storm from hell.
I was very close to death as snow and ice covered my face, 
but I keep fighting because I didn't want to die in this place. 
No matter what, I continued to fight,
I fought to stay alive day and night.
I was close to death as I coughed and sneezed, 
I said a quick prayer to the Lord and fell to my knees.
“O’ Lord, I’m about to die from this cold arctic air, 
the harsh weather conditions are much more than I can bear.”
Suddenly, there was a big change in the way I felt, 
the wind stopped blowing and the snow began to melt. 
I realized that the Lord had come to my aid, 
the weather immediately changed as soon as I prayed. 
There was no more wind, snow, or freezing rain,
 I was relieved from misery, anguish, grief, and pain. 
 I couldn’t believe how the storm disappeared,
 the dark clouds vanished and the sun reappeared. 
Joy filled my heart as it begun to get warm, 
I’m so thankful He delivered me from this storm!

                 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"
