Fresh Dew

The sun came out today
Why was my life so
Gloomy
All because of choices made
When we never intended to stay

The crater was filled
I no longer seek another’s
Part
To make me feel whole
Cause my heart is finally healed

Freedom is new for me
Splashing a fresh dew
Upon
My face giving me the
Power to live effortlessly

Things are not the same
I finally know how to be
Content
Basking in all His glory
Resting for the remainder of days

My Black Man

My Black Man

Didn’t you know

You were a King

Not in the hood

But you had your

Own country

They stole your crown

They stole your seed

They stole your woman

They stole you heritage

My Black Man

When will you stand

Show them who you are

You are not the coward

They beat you into

You are strong and mighty

Like the Black Panther

They taught you to turn

Your back on your seed

The seed you can’t

Stand to look at

Because in him all you see

Is the failure

They taught you to be

Rise up Black Man

Don’t you know

You are a King

You created systems

Languages and dynasties

That they envied

Claim your heritage

Teach your sons

To be future Kings

Your daughters to be Queens

Stop allowing the enemy

To steal what we

Are destined to be

Forgiveness is Easy, Forgetting is another Chapter

Lover’s I realize that I am in a healing space right now. Someone has hurt me deeply to the core of my being and I must forgive them. It has been hard because the people who hurt me are people I love.

I must forgive so that I can move on but I do not forget. Nor do I allow those people back into my life so easily. They have to earn a place in my life. They have to earn my trust, loyalty, love again. It will not be freely given.

Should they choose not to return, that is just fine. I have made peace with all of them. I have found my safe place and have managed just fine without them. Yes I miss them sometimes but being alone is worth the peace I have gained.

To those who are still selfishly hurting others. Take a minute and consider your own pain. Imagine someone digging a weapon in your open wound and how unbearable it would be emotionally. That’s what you are doing to the people you are using, lying to, cheating, betraying, all for your own selfish gain. Realize that your pain will stop when you stop causing pain to others.

Fedora Loves You. Peace!

Now I am Found…

Now I am Found... by Fedora

Now I am found. Found in what. What has found me. I have found patience, faith, and determination in love. This is not my first time loving a man. But it is my first time deciding to stand and make this love work in our lives. Myles Munroe said that “love is not the foundation of marriage, you need knowledge and understanding.” The love comes easy. Often quickly but love alone cannot sustain the relationship.

This time I allowing to slow me down in the building of this love and commitment. I have learned that there are many forces opposed to love. Things or people destined to destroy the love relationship are in abundance. But finding support in successfully standing in your love relationship are scarce.

Recently I have seen several love relationships meltdown right in front of me. They shared common denominators, anger, pain, confusion, and ignorance. Yes, ignorance. People do not know how to understand each other enough to really love and support the person not their feelings.

Patience, willing spirit, and listening will tell you all you need to know. Even what’s wrong. Sometimes we turn a deaf ear to what’s wrong. This keeps us waiting longer because we cannot build with another when we are not whole ourselves. I know this because I lived this.

I told you that last time. I am confidently lost. I know who I am and I am confidently stumbling through my new path with a smile on my face and love in my heart. I am a whole woman who loves a broken man. He desires wholeness and is currently seeking it but it requires patience and understanding on my part.

Obtaining wholeness takes sacrifice, time, and perseverance. To become whole you first must sacrifice what you believe to be true and face your real truth. Acknowledge your shortcomings, face those painful moments, and who you have allowed yourself to become as a result of the pain. Then allow yourself time to heal. Healing means dealing with the pain. No more running. Let the tears fall. Say what you need to say. Then stand your ground on your new path. Don’t allow others to steal your newfound joy and love.

I am now in my period of standing. God has amazed me this year. Everywhere I turn He is there showing me how well I am loved. Abundance and favor has reigned on me since the new year began. I eagerly anticipate what the rest of this year will produce. I have taken ownership of my life and my path. I know what I deserve and will not accept anything less than that in any area of my life.

Everything happens when it’s supposed to happen. I am living that in my life right now, as I watch things that were promised years ago manifest before my eyes with no delay. It is amazing, scary, and fulfilling at the same time. But there is no other place I would rather be.

Wherever you go

Wherever you go
That’s where I am
Watching you be
The quality man
Who intrigues me
With his swagger
With his mind
With his ways

He moves in ways
She doesn’t know
Scary at times
But never forgotten
Never dissatisfied
Just being his

I go where our hearts
Lead us
Discovering the
Next phase of US
