The hidden valley
I was once trapped in a place not long ago,
Where the sun never shined and nothing would grow.
Dark clouds covered the sky and it was pouring down rain,
I tried running for shelter but I only ran in vain,
No life existed, not even birds or bees,
And there was no vegetation such as flowers or trees.
Yes, there was no flowers growing in spring,
 there was no sun to grow anything.
The valley was bare only rocks covered the ground,
I cried out for help, but there was no one around.
The clouds made the sky so dark I couldn’t tell day from night,
It would have been a blessing just to see a ray of light.
Because I couldn’t see any light, I became filled with doubt,
that I would never find a path that led the way out.
I became discouraged because I knew I was all alone.
I tried to continue forward, but I had not strength to carry on.
Then I lost hope, despair filled my heart,
I fell to my knees and prayed to my Lord in the dark:
“O, Lord, this is a matter of life and death,
Please help me Lord”, I prayed by myself.
Then the Lord opened my eyes and showed me a sign,
And I knew instantly everything would be fine.
While still on my knees, I saw this message appear:
The message gave me hope and put a smile on my face, and
It gave me the strength to make it out of that place.
Then appearing before my eyes a very beautiful sight,
Just beyond the dark clouds was a pure ray of light.
When I saw a road appear it became clear as day,
The Lord was giving me a sign to travel this way,
When the dark clouds finally left, I was able to see,
That the valley was created by fear dwelling in me!

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"
