                               The Road to Success

O lord, I’m lost and don’t know which way to go,
My frustration is so great that only You would know…
I’ve been traveling on this road seven days a week,
I’m so stressed until I haven’t been able to sleep.
My burdens are more than I’m able to bear,
I try reaching out to others, but no one else seems to care…

“Blessed is the man who turns to me for advice, indeed, I charge nothing except thou shall honor me with thy life,
I have heard thy prayers and thou shall surely see peace,
 I shall bless thee abundantly as sure as the sun rises in the east.
Refrain from evil and my grace shall guide thee through,
 if thou will trust and believe,
 then there’s no limit to the things I shall do.
Man seeks success to honor his own glory,
but take heed to what I did in King Solomon’s story.
One night, not too late, I asked Solomon what he wanted in a dream, I wanted him to have great success with Me working as a team…
He said, “Listen, out of all the things in this world, I just want to govern Your people right, so please give me, I pray thee, what’s best in the Lord’s sight…”
I, the Lord, found honor in his request, and because he did not seek his own glory, his life was truly blessed.
The instructions I gave him were plain easy, and simple,
he glorified Me when he built the world’s greatest temple.
He endured great sorrows, but he taught men to glorify My Name, and I blessed him abundantly with wisdom, fortune and fame.
Wherefore, thou shall seek me and be truly blessed, because I am the only way to Life, Happiness, and Success!”

II Chronicles 1:7-12, Deuteronomy 28, Joshua 1:7-8

                 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"
