Daughter of the World – Poem


Poems about women

She was a daughter of the world, my dear…
Who else did you hope you would see her be?

She was a daughter of the world, you know?
Yes, you knew she was – she did tell you so

By the way she moved, by the way she spoke…

You said she was the one, then you took her home
Aware of who she was – the daughter of the world

So why would you blame her for your fall?
She was a woman of the world, after all…

You believed you could resist because you were strong

You engaged in her deceitful talk – a little too long

She was falling; of course she made you fall

Extremely fast and extremely low.

You opened the door of your universe for her
Wide open – to be torn apart as she entered there

She was a child of the SKY –
A beauty of the Beast, but you… came

From then – within His beautiful temple

Right into the present – un-covered… in shame

Your muse was nothing less and she was nothing more,
but a totally faithful daughter of the unfaithful world

‘Wahala’ was her name. ‘Wahala’ she was called

She was a daughter of the world –
With all her heart, her mind, her soul…

 Set her free… Why won’t you, baby?

Set her free… …In Him…
She is no longer who she used to be.

Meaning of “wahala”: Trouble 😳

It’s OK if You’re not OK

Our eyes cry the same type of tears

Our hearts feel the same type of pain

 .

I don’t need you to smile if you’re hurting

By His Grace, I can handle your hurt

 .

You don’t have to be strong all the time

You don’t have to pretend it’s just fine…

  .

I’m not scared of your tears. I won’t run away

What do you need? How can I pray?

  .

It’s okay if you’re not okay…

  .

You are still one of my favorites, on Earth…

Even when your mind doesn’t match His name

  .

I’m not here for your fame, or to cast the blame

I’ve made many mistakes, gone through guilt & shame

 .

It’s okay if you’re not okay… Yet,

 .

If you hide from me, do not hide from Him

You won’t drown in these tears. He will help you swim

 .

He will help you jump through each hellish hoop

As far as New York is from Guadeloupe!

 .

He is stronger than life, death, and night or day

He will show you the way to escape, so I pray

  .

It’s okay if you’re not okay…
