Book Excerpts

Wearing Someone Else’s Shoes Ain’t Never Been Me

(From Wearing Someone Else’s Shoes Ain’t Never Been Me poetry book)

Get back; Get yourself out of the way; ’cause I am coming through; some of you trying to latch on; might have to let go ’cause I have to let go too; I was meant to be free; wearing someone else’s shoes ain’t never been me; those shoes don’t fit; and forcing them to doesn’t seem legitimate; those shoes that were framed and molded for me; will help me embrace my own destiny…

 

Safe

(From Wearing Someone Else’s Shoes Ain’t Never Been Me poetry book)

I don’t feel safe when I’m feeling vulnerable; but help me to believe I’m safe and secure in You even during these times…

 

Black Thunder

(From Wearing Someone Else’s Shoes Ain’t Never Been Me)

You are the lightning that took the world by storm; they were afraid of your spark; and the powerful stature that God almighty formed; they took your crown, but you are still a king; from the bloodlines of Africa your ancestors sing…

 

Setting The Captive Free

(From Setting The Captive Free poetry book)

No more restraints and tight grips; poetry, escape and manifest this gift; You are to please and not to please; you are to tell the truth; You are to stretch the truth in imagination; you are for consistent examination; You are to say what my mouth cannot…

 

Just Because

(From Setting The Captive Free poetry book)

Just Because: I’m not tall and thin; doesn’t mean my shape isn’t in and I can’t win; my hair isn’t silky straight or bouncing on my back; But it tells its own story; of African culture, confidence and natural beauty in fact; and I got this skin; That’s dark brown sugar within…

 

The devil’s Loss

(From Setting The Captive Free poetry book)

The devil wants me to believe; God’s purpose for me will never be achieved; so he whispers in my ear; he tells me things my flesh wants to hear; his plan is to destroy me…

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1 NIV)
