Today

Today I woke up to the tender touch of love

Caressing my inner thoughts with delight

Kissing me with divine passion,

The heart is awakened; hmm love has come with all grace!

Today I woke up with love on my mind, saw a vision of you, and knew it was good,

 My heart dance with ecstasy.

Today your love became my second skin. What bliss to be wrapped in such warmth.

Today, the greater you met the greater me and together we became the greatest inspiration that kept heaven spellbound.

Today, honey was not the sweetest thing on my lips. Your kiss hmm orgasmic.

Today I saw love in fruition in the hand of God, with a smile he handed you to me.

Today I found myself

Today love and I became best-friends.

Today I found heaven in you

Today my heart says yes to love,

Today I open up my heart to you and found my greatest strength.

I thank the divine for blessing me with today.

Flying with battered Wings

We are birds that fly with battered wings.

It is painful, you know, but we want to live.

So we endure the pain. We must fly as long as we have wings.

No matter its conditions,

We must fly. We weren’t meant to have damaged wings.

But the hand of evil is everywhere.

We are the little girls and the little boys that were

Forgotten by god for a moment

In the jungle filled with beastly things, we were left unprotected.

We are damaged souls walking on broken glass that once held our beauty and innocence.

Looking for wholeness, some limp, some crawling, nevertheless we are moving.

We bear the scars of man’s weakness, the victims of those that lost their humanity,

Yet we find ways to live and, for some of us, if we can’t find a way, we create a way.

We suffer in silence among you, in the work place, the classrooms, we sit next to you in the church.

And to some we are  wives and husbands, yet you are unaware.

We are birds that fly with battered wings,

It is painful, you know, but we want to live.

So we endure the pain, no matter the conditions.

We must fly to live
