Poems Am grateful July 19, 2019 GRATEFUL Oh! how grateful I am To my journey through life How fast my boat dunked due to the numerous stones I threw in it Swimming with the mermaids searching for something I couldn’t recall Always looking in each gate I entered Am grateful for the times I sat and opened up my eyes letting the waters free Free from the pains that has been locked up in my friable heart How I was able to line up my ashes in a white paper and smoking it away Smoking away the fragility with nothing left but stones Am grateful for the number of times have been stabbed right through the chest hoping it would hit my heart only for it to bounce back , am impenetrable But there has always been a purpose One I couldn’t run from even when my stone filled heart turned me into monster Purpose found me from the bottom of the sea and birthed me up to the surface that I may become dry again Dry and new like a fresh baked bread Where are my stains ? my stoned heart ?my dred locks ?where are the smokes in my hands or the ladies in my bed? ALL GONE It all seems like one of those film tricks but trust me its God’s plan I was casted away but he drew me close Chased by demons but he became my shield Arrested my drugs but he cleansed me He called me unto SALVATION Opening the eyes of my understanding so that I may see the tree of life and death and choose life Am grateful because am a TESTIMONY Shouting on rooftops Salting out the world with the word he has placed on my tongue to spit out life Am grateful for my journey for it’s been a story for his glory to shine through AM GRATEFUL What are you grateful for ?
