The following poem was written in the aftermath of the riots ignited by George Floyd's death.
The Day came when He was Crucified
Many Crucial Acts Occured Before He Died
He was Falsy Accused Just like today
When A Person of Color Gets in THEIR Way
He Was Beaten Beyond a Dog to an Unrecognizable Pulp
Only the Helpless and those with a Heart Yelled ‘STOP’
He was the ONLY Man that could take the Hate
Knowing He was Going to Die, His Only Fate
But He Allowed HIS Life to Go
Just So You and I Would KNOW
That There is a Method To All of This Maddness
Revealing a Final Destination without Eternal Saddness
Yes, We Protest and March and Show Our Concerns
But Not By Looting and Other Bussinness we Burn
That Day Is Coming When you will Draw Your Last Breath
Will Your Last Acts Show Others Love or Selfish Regrets
Be Careful Christians You Followers of This Faith
Rethink Your Actions and Powerfully Find Another Way...
P.S. Keep Praying and Allow the Power of God To Show Itself.
Prayer Does Work If you At Least Consult it First. What Would Jesus Do.
I Bring You Peace.
In the midst of the pandemic, the senseless racial killings, and my sensitivity to 5G EMF frequencies, I woke up with a MAJOR headache. I had to press through the pain because I needed my QUIET TIME.
God's Divine Grace

Heart goes out to Every Woman Alive Today
Being A True Nurturer, You’ve Given Much Away
What Do I Mean when I say These Words
Just Keep Reading and You will Absorb
To Mothers who have children who are Away
You will See them again, Continue to Pray
To Mothers who Think They Have Done Wrong
Seek Forgiveness and Love Will Come Along
To Mothers who Lost Their Mothers and Feel Alone
Those Memories Now Should Prove So Strong
To the Mothers who Never Ever Gave Birth
Thank You So Much For Sharing Your Worth
To Every Woman who has Nurtured Many Souls
Your Touch has made Many Lives Whole
There is so much You Have Done to so Many
Not Even a Man could Imitate Your Being
Thank you Mothers for Such Loving Touches
For Wiping Away Tears when Many were Bothered
May You Truly Enjoy This Day In Every Way
Have A Blessed and Prosperous Mother’s Day.
Written Especially For You on Mother’s Day
