A Poem for Thought


More Beautiful for Having Been Broken

Changes come once one becomes heartbroken
Often one's being becomes better, still
More beautiful for having been broken

The hurt brings one's being to awoken
Reflecting on one's life, often one will
As changes come once one becomes heartbroken

Although one sad, to this bespoken
One learns in this to grow until
More beautiful for having been broken

As never having been one becomes hard
Where distance to others one's being sits
Restraints in place one's heart is barred

Once broken one's heart then permits
A place in allowing others in
Where love and care does then admits

Healing takes place as one softens within
For change comes once one becomes heartbroken
Now open hearted to others blossoms therein
More beautiful for having been broken

Thoughts: When one struggles in life one can become very hard and cold towards others; even, to the point of having a hard time connecting with others. One often locks their heart up; especially, if having no one there emotionally as part of the equation in helping one through the struggles. It is hard for me to admit, but I've been there, as you will learn if you decide to read my memoirs' book that's coming soon. Thing is, once one develops that barrier around one's heart, it may take becoming heartbroken in opening one's heart to once again receive and give love. Although the pain is hard to get through, once one does get broken, one's heart becomes cracked allowing others in. And, although, once this happens one may experience a directional mishap in where to go with this new found softness; beauty eventually blossoms in one being able to love and care for others where one's heart used to be hard and closed to others, as one becomes more beautiful for having been broken.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
