Unspoken Words | Poem

I long for your presence. My feet guide me to you with ease, anxious and wanting. Your eyes are closed Breathing in and out, lips moving Whispering praises of God.

Heart of a Warrior | Poem

It doesn’t seem very real until seeing someone a person who I hold dearly to my heart a person who has fought my fights and patched up my four year old dresses and when life gets its way trying with all my might to attack the stings of built up emotion she holds me tight embracingContinue reading “Heart of a Warrior | Poem”

We’ve all suffered from − or will eventually be victim to heartbreak. Whether it’s from our family, once-believed lover, studies, careers, or friends.
