We would like to welcome our latest blogger, she will be bringing some soul stirring poetry for your enjoyment.
WHAT DO I SEE?
When I look at me, I see no one’s daughter, wife or mother.
When I look at me, I see no doormat or a sign on my back that says walk on me. When I look at me, I see no victim, beaten down by the suffering of my own choices. When I look at me, I see no one, who because of the Blackness of her skin, must bow to the one who created a matrix of white supremacy
And never be FREE…..
What do I see? Lordy have mercy what do I see?
I see a warm and caring human being
I see a sensitive, sensual, sexy, and spiritual person
I see a person who loves God and appreciates life’s many gifts……
I see brilliance, intelligence, creativity, and grace
I see beauty that is continuously evolving from the inside out
I see a spiritual being, a breathing organism
I see a soul who wears a human suit that clothes her true divine identity.
I see the luminosity of Spirit glowing in me – Holy Oneness
I see a Beautiful, Bodacious, Brilliant, Badass, Black Woman
I see the most precious gift of all ,LOVE, that binds us together
I see you in me and me in you
Now run tell that!
Life is funny sometimes with its many twists and turns.
Life deals some days as sweet as the taste of honey on the tip of your tongue.
Then Life decides as if through no desire of your own, NO!
Today will be a shit day for you!
Moreover, life will dump stinking loads of shit on you to see exactly what you are made of.
However, you keep on going and striving for the highest good.
You allow yourself to smile and laugh right in the face of this shitty adversity.
How dare Life be so cruel and treat you this way!
You bow your head to your heart and utter a soulful prayer to the Source of the Universe, who always always has your back.
It replies in the quietude of your soul, your sanctuary,
“Hey Girlfriend, this is earth school, where you keep on learning and loving, even on shitty days.”
How else will you know what you are made of, love?
Shitty days give you the fortitude to enjoy life for what it is truly meant to be; to love, to serve, to be the best spiritual being you can be in all circumstances.”
Now, you have your eyes wide open and the internal essence of your soul leads the way—pay attention.
Now, it has been made very clear, these shitty days were just the Creator’s way to give you the fertilizer that you need to grow, to be transformed, transmuted and to transcend to a higher plane of living.
Beloved, The SOULFULL Poet will be bringing us more to be grateful for this fall.
