Walk With Us: #bringbackourgirls

Standard

Our voices must echo louder than the bang of their guns
Our words must resonate higher than the boom of their bombs
Our stand must remain unified in the face of their intimidation
The ripple effect of our actions must trigger faster than the chaos they inflict
We must fight against the madness that is fast becoming Nigeria…

#Bringbackourgirls: A Cry For Help

Standard

If the children(boy and girl) are our future…Then it is up to us as “responsible”humans and adults to defend, and keep them from any and everything that seeks to hate, destroy, hurt, attack, intimidate, annihilate, and abuse them.

It is our core and essential duty. It is our life long responsibility to protect our children because they are our future… They are our tomorrow.

I Watch An Angel Sleep

Standard
On a cold December night
An angel sleeps on a bed of pink daisies
Love floating butterflies around her dainty walled room of peach

Bye baby bunting coos softly
Light snow blowing unseen against glass framed windows
Her childlike snores meditative music that fills my nighttime  air

I stand by and watch my (loving) daughter sleep

Saturday Morning Sun

Standard
Gloriously golden in its early morning rise
Saturday morning sun melts Thursday's winter white

Sometimes…

Standard
Sometimes darkness like a patch of gray clouds hang heavy
It hangs low spilling forth ache
Overshadowing even the brightest of days
Overwhelming the brightest of hopes

A moment birthing unimaginable pain...

*Tonight, I will hug my children tighter than usual, thanking Heaven for them…all the while praying for the parents in Newton, whose pain my heart cannot comprehend…I pray for the victims of this tragedy…May their souls rest in peace*

Moving Forward

Standard

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 1Timothy 2:1-2. NIV

Sound the alarm, make it known
As unprecedented history resoundingly repeats itself
A generation speaking for what it believes
The horns of victory blowing in their hearts
Celebration and joy flowing from them all

And though there is still much work to be done
We rejoice still in this feat
Acknowledging the long journey ahead
Its road tough and rough

Knowing in the coming days and months
We must reach across aisles
Putting ambition, color and self-agenda aside
Working together for a greater good

For underneath our dividing differences
Lay a unifying truth
Love for a great nation, our patriotism
So together we must work
Even if and when we disagree
Every one doing their part

For progress, success, and lasting change
To prevail

Untitled: I Am Happy

Standard

I await with eager anticipation
This unseen joy
That keeps my heart thumping fast
Heavy set drum rolls incomparable
Gentle rain outisde my foggy window
Reassuring me of victory…
