Book Excerpts

Bring It To The Surface

The muddy waters, full of debri; make it impossible for me to see; His reflection looking back at me; Pieces of me float out to sea; The things I lost have sunk deep; I beg desperately; For rescue and for someone to recover my ax; The very tool I need to fight through the woods and make my way back; I stayed at this river for many seasons and sang the same song; However, this is the year I reach the place I belong…

Faith It Through (For Those W/ Anxiety)

(From Bring It To The Surface Poetry & Journal)

Mountain of anxiety be lifted up; And thrown into the sea; And don’t come back with more fear; To terrorize me. Body, and mind, and spirit too; Believe that God can deliver you; And be healed by His stripes; Tired of these attacks; I’m losing my strength to fight; But I’m not turning back…

Hot Cocoa On A Snowy Day

(From Christmas In The Winter poetry book)

…Lots of soul food and food for the soul; Lots of stories ’round the table to be told; A night to remember for the young; A night to be present for the old; Warm hearts fill the cold; As Christmas is near; Let all of the house be full of cheer; And Jesus’s way; With hot cocoa on a snowy day

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…


(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…

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)
