This is a tribute to the slaves!


This is a tribute to Black History Month.  This is not a Black History poem. This is an African America slavery poem in rememberance of  American slaves like: Frederick Douglass, Booker T Washington, Harriet Tubman, and all who gave their lives during slavery. 


This poem is dedicated to all the slaves that suffered, endured, and overcame slavery. To the slaves who suffered, tortured, and died –thank you for your great sacrifice!  




God was with the Slaves

Lord, why did you allow thousands
of men and women be enslaved in this nation,
 many of them suffered to death working on cotton plantations?
Many of them died in utter despair,
their pain, grief, and misery was too much for them to bear.
They were deprived of human rights
and were made to work by force,
For this great evil, America has never shown remorse…
O Lord, they prayed for deliverance,
but it seems as though their prayers were all in vain,
 why didn’t You deliver them from their
 torment of anguish, grief and pain?

“Behold, I hold the keys of life and death in the palm of my hand,
I can deliver My people from the bondage of man.
For many generations they cried unto to Me,
I had great compassion and decided to set them free.
I loved them like a man loves his bride,
their prayers were not in vain even the ones who died.
Indeed, this great evil America will ever hide,
But be of good cheer, I was there right by their side.
I never forget about their great grief and pain,
 I was right there to comfort them
as soon as they called on My name!”

*Psalms 53, *Nehemiah 9:14-38, *Isaiah 62:1-12

                 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"
