My faith experience

To know God in me is easy, I just have to look to past poetry I have written. And I know that God is my inspiration. It makes me wonder at his depth and goodness. One particular experience was when I prayed with my mentor for the revelation of his presence. I just wanted to…

Enough

How strong is strong enough that I don’t attract enemies but I can protect my family So I never see a repeat of the hopelessness I felt of the helplessness I had How powerful is power enough that my name provokes respect in ways that save my children How can I only watch her condemned,…

A Reflection of His Glory
