Black Girl on the Front Row!

“Magnificent”

Know,

that you are loved.

As you lay awake,

before the steps

of your new day,

you take,

know this Truth,

that will not break.

Understand,

that you are adored.

You leave

the constellations floored,

as,

from their

lofty carpet,

they observe,

how you endure,

increasingly, more.

Remember this.

You are,

undeniably, magnificent.

You can not be ignored.

As shadows appear,

have no fear.

For you are meant

to be here.

You are revered.

Sea vessels,

change the course

they’ve steered,

to catch a glimpse,

of your Essence…

Paint the plimsoll line,

just to float

at your level.

Revel in it.

As the breezes

sweep the dust of dusk,

to view the finery

of your

Divinely-decorated Spirit,

know this….

…The World

and all Creation,

long, to dive

your depth..

and marvel

at the profundity

of your stillness,

within it.

“And The Battle, Ain’t Over”

And the battle,

it ain’t over..

Oh, but, surely,

it is won!

Even though,

it seems to most,

as if,

it’s only just begun.

Even if,

there is an aperture,

suggesting, it’s the start..

…and the journey seems so long,

that there is no sense,

to depart.

Take a second.

Really

Pause

…and then,

review what’s in your

Heart.

You will find,

there is a Conqueror,

whose Legacy is bound

to the

Line of the Triumphant,

and

their Victories, resound!

So,

be confident,

within this Truth.

Begin, where you begin.

And, remember,

in this mindset,

you are Mighty,

thus,

YOU WIN!!

“Your Day”

 This,

could be your day.

When,

you stop sighing.

Cease, wondering.

Desist,

from crying

your whole Soul out…

.. because you feel

you aren’t part of it,

or have it,

or get it..

…aren’t considered,

a “Big Deal“.

This could be your day

to reach out,

further,

than you’ve ever been.

To retrieve,

what you’ve believed in,

all along.

The day,

when the notes

and the lyrics to your song,

are, finally, complete..

…and,

your percussion line,

matches every,

heartfelt, heartbeat.

When your passion

harmonises with

desires,

fashioned,

by The Origin.

Your day,

when you just know,

you win

… When you are, more than, comfy,

in your

very, own, skin.

This. Could. Be. The. Day

your dreams begin.

The ones,

held,

within

the realms of sleep.

The ones,

you thought

you’d have to keep inside

They were

ambitious echoes

of your ideas,

unrequited.

Remember them?

Well,

this could be your day,

when,

what you thought

was lost,

is reunited.

This could be it!

Whyever, not?

And

why not, you?

Why shouldn’t Life,

deliver

on your Faith,

to reconsider that,

one day,

could be today…

… when, the clouds,

drift far away

and

everything becomes renewed

The Moment,

of this,

Special Day,

when the Impossible

becomes,

absolutely True.

“What It Is”

Once done,

it cannot be,

undone.

Neither, walked-back.

Nor,

its measure,

quantified,

by things, alone…

For,

it means more,

than that.

Its depth,

cannot be persuaded

to shallowness.

Its Light,

cajoled,

to opacity.

Nor,

its authenticity,

diluted,

by insincerity.

Its value,

not indicated,

by meritocracy.

This thing,

called Love,

is Unconditional.

It is,

what it is,

you see.

“Soul-fie, Not, Self-ie”

The day has arrived.

As sun rises,

it has

dawned upon you,

that Now,

is the Time,

to heed the warning.

Time,

to take your stand,

against

any woman or man,

who tries to

ride, roughshod,

over your

Super-Nature.

Oppose,

those,

who seek to

use, confuse, abuse,

your

Goodness.

Reject

the misappropriation

of your meekness…

through accusation,

of its weakness…

For this,

is

a,

blatant,

lie.

You,

are power,

under control.

In Divine defiance,

of anything,

their words seek

to imply.

So,

hold your ground.

Face forward,

to the Light…

…and,

in this position,

find your rest.

Select,

only, the best.

Stand,

poised,

as you pose,

to take a Soul-fie…

…and recognise,

within your Spirit,

how richly,

you are

Blessed.

“Tell Your Heroes”

Do not spend them,

solely,

in thought.

Let those waters flow,

with words,

that cannot be

for any other.

Speak,

in wholes,

not, thirds.

Sound the sentiments,

which stem,

from elemental

frequencies…

…And,

do it,

frequently.

Knock fear,

off-kilter.

Let those machinations,

from the brain,

be filtered,

by the Heart..

… and point them,

in direction of

the root

of

your affection.

Hesitation,

is,

no longer,

ratified.

Straightway,

is the attitude,

to take.

The stance, you make,

to bless your source

of inspiration.

Leave them, gratified…

..with,

not a modicum

of room,

for doubt.

Oh,

dear, friend

Tell every hero,

boldly,

that

you Love them.

Get it out!

It could be

the

most crucial

message,

that you,

ever,

send.

“Head, Full Of Butterflies”

Head,

full of butterflies.

Filled with ideas,

flitting,

from flower-to-flower

of

vivid thought.

Antennae,

dip into

the bells of imagination…

Ring the colours

of changing intention,

with ease,

through liberty

of expression.

No bones of contention,

lodged in the throat,

nor abstention,

from

Reality.

Set,

to swim the channel

of ingenuity.

Morph,

into the new creature,

of nascent creativity.

Wings,

can, now, unfurl.

Like oysters,

made to form

Unique Purpose,

in every,

delicate pearl.

“Lonely Girl”

I am

a painted prayer.

Seated, alone,

I spy the Earth,

from gilt-edged galaxies

and watch it glow,

beneath a bursting sun.

I barely know it, now.

There,

where clouds,

were angels’ whispers,

brittle atmospheres,

are sewn together.

As rain falls apart,

tears float, Heavenward..

Dreams, evaporate…

Butterfly kisses,

have become, near misses…

But,

a distant Voice,

rings Change.

… and,

through the

compass of Celestial Covenant,

all,

is to be

reset, renewed

and,

lovingly, rearranged..

“Know Your Worth”

 

Know your worth.

 

Know,

that with your birth,

came, increased value,

to the Earth.

 

Hear this Truth.

Hear, that you are valid.

Without you,

the World would just

be pallid.

 

Take this in.

You are sunshine,

in one,

cheeky, grin!

 

Get this,

into your system…

 

Without you,

sunsets,

would just be

distant memories..

 

But,

with you,

they are precious moments..

 

with you,

we will never

miss them.
