Flash Back Friday: Poetic Soul

Updated: Oct 3, 2020


Today I received a call from my uncle, as I do from time to time, it reawakened my inner purpose, my calling, the one thing that has been mine for most all of my life... My Poetry!

So take a moment and re-enter into my world, my flash back from a poem I emailed my family.

I am but a child


Lips still wet with the milk of a nipple


A small head innocent


Life was simple


Pleased by ice sickles and bubble gum

Kick ball and recess


Look at how far I’ve come


Indeed was mistaken on the paths that ran after


Un be knownst to what my life would capture


Looking through my past

I inquire within a pastor

"Prophesize"

For I am mislead in my thoughts


Sometimes my soul is o.k


But most time distraught


He spoke


See the devil has a certain way to keep


Gods people caught


They live In a way that’s, mostly just talk


And they pray for what they want


And loose what they got


Straying from the straight and narrow


And slowly loosing there spot


Only to die with the nonbelievers for eternity and rot I Do Not…


I replied


I want that eternal life


The promised to rid the world of all struggle and strife


I’m ready to live right


And you are so right


I’m crawling from out the darkness


And embracing the light


It’s a spiritual fight


And I am so ready for the battle


Uplifting the Lord my God


No longer lurking in the shadows


Acknowledging his word


And the way it set me free


And remembering his grace


For on that day he shall remember me- Nicole MzHairPoetry Douglas-Phillips
