Final Destination: My Destiny

26 Aug

image


ย If the sun won’t shine today
I feel like I have to
Trying to reflect the hope I know
A promise that reveals He’s faithful

Everything in oppositon
Pushing me to give in

Telling me this will never end

I can’t win

For me to be such a small woman

I wonder how my enemies are two 6 ft. something, sized men. (?)

The only way out
Is to fall down
I thought I was already there before
As long as I live
They come to attack me some more
What’s the point of being strong
When you’re all alone,

I’ve weighed it all in my head
The truth I discovered
Is that your attackers, your enemies
Want to torment you
Until you’reย  dead

I’m too beautiful to fall
Into the hands of those
Who have dug their own holes
Trying to bring me down

Thinking they know what’s ahead for me
Trying to keep me from my crown

Golden.
Pain is there. Still, I’m glowing.
Each day I’m here.
Chosen at birth, I choose to keep going.

Nobody to cheer me on
To listen & hear what I’m going through
Years, tears and my fears trying to rest with me
No end in sight
I know this wants to get the best of me
Thinking time matters to me, I am my own destiny

In case they never heard it like this
I am the Promise, the Purpose
without me, there’s no them
Their lives are worthless
Purposeless
While they get dressed, rehearse and choose a church pulpit
To get a message of the verses I already came with
That I was made with.

So if the sun’s not shining
And the skies not crying
Am I to become one of the
Flowers I see around me
with no power
Dying on the inside
And then physically
For the world to go on
As if it never needed me

When I look at me
I know I see
What no one can see
What no one can ever be.

No pressure
From this day
To explain my grace
I just move on to the next one
In grace
My life for what it is now
Embraced
My smile and radiance
Never erased
While you carry baggage and overweight
I carry one, you could never keep up with my pace

While I rise
Just keep your eyes
Focused on my demise
Something you can never devise
Once at the top
I’ve reached the beginning of my life
While you settle into yours the way it’s been

I’ll be out of your reach then.

You should have treated, honored and cherished us better when……
Did I say us? So I’m not alone, just because u think you’ve made it that way.

It’s OK.
I can’t keep entertaining my footstools
As if they’re my pedestals.

When the fat lady begins to sing
And you look up to see your opponent
The one your fighting
And realize you’re not the king
They’ll say you lost a war you started with this woman & her son because she didn’t settle for you and wear your ring.

But we all are champions?

Just like we all are stars?

You’re not. It wasn’t in your cards.

But we are. ๐Ÿ™‚

Poetry: See Me Human

11 Aug

See Me Human

When Iโ€™m having a good day

Or two

It just does something to em

To know that Iโ€™m human

Not always on top of my game
That I try to work hard in the middle of the pain

I donโ€™t mind you seeing me in error

Cause the days pass and somehow Iโ€™m better

I return

With a stack of new lessons learned

Youโ€™ll see me human

Especially if Iโ€™m doing

What I love to do

No matter what side Iโ€™m on

You wonโ€™t see me ruined

Skin thickened

I get it

A lot quicker

Than I used to

Life’s Poetry!

Worthy

    By Veronica M. Benson

    I am just a girl
    Finding her place in this world

    I’ve been through it all,
    Trials big & small
    Unbroken from every fall

    I return.

    Just to learn,
    that I am deserving
    of everything good, that this life
    could offer me.
    I earned it. I’m WORTHY.
    If I would try to define my worth
    I deserve the earth
    and only a man who would walk it several times over to try and see me
    Even if he could be nothing more than a friend to me
    She’s worth it. She has purpose

    That nobody has lived before
    and that nobody can deliver her to, but the Lord
    She’s tried to be everything for everybody else
    now she’s going to be everything for herself
    Her time is now. For such a time as this.

    Prepared years; the best that will ever be
    Flourishes, shining, brightly, blooming from the ground
    surrounded, by enemies.
    Or anybody that appears to be a friend to me.

    I don’t want to hear “be humble,” I’m humble.
    And no more being Ms. Modest
    I’m just being honest
    I’ve taken a long test all this while
    and whatever it takes,
    I’ve proven that I’ve got it
    Nobody’s gonna take it from me…

    Or will be allowed to say they were with me
    when all along, their actions and words
    proved, you, were against me
    This is me.
    When I was about to run on empty,
    I had to lift me
    & fill me
    Pick me…up
    and save me
    So I pick me!

    She alone is WORTHY!

    Focused. Forgiving. (You’re forgiven.) Healed. Healing while healing. Aware of the power given into her hands.
    She’s ready. The world has turned & is waiting with her own place to stand.

    She’s been hurt on top of hurt, while she was hurting
    No amount of pain can contain her & keep her away from all that she deserves.
    Pain can’t define her worth.
    She’s WORTHY. Deserving.
    When you see her,
    You too, will know that she deserves it.

    I am WORTHY!

    She deserves all that is GOOD
    right from her Chicago neighborhood to Hollywood
    Whatever she does, wherever she goes, she could.
    She knew it before she got there.
    when she was all alone and no one else was there.
    She deserves to have it all!
    She should.

    No shame in her celebration
    No guilt for every moment she spent waiting
    Anticipating, chasing her dreams
    while holding in her screams

    All put up against her
    is working, for her good
    she worked it
    for a greater purpose

    and nobody, no honey, not even you
    can tell her better
    That she deserves it!

    She’s worth it. I DESERVE IT!

    I am WORTHY!

    Worthy!
