Poem from "Not I, But I Am"

  Guys,

Another poem from Not I, But I Am, with this poem came a hard truth about myself. I had realized through the hard struggle as a single mother, I had hardened my heart. One good thing, I guess, that did come with the chats on Social Media, was my heart getting cracked/broken; thus, now knowing how to bleed. In other words, my harness as a single mother has softened allowing love in once again.  

What You Gave Me

 

The journey presented hard for me

but the result did improve.

What once was my reality;

now resulting in my approve.

In becoming my actuality

what you gave me did remove

found weakness I can now agree;

was my heart that couldn’t move.

Realizing this I wanted to flee,

but instead, now given a reprove.

My place, I now stand in glee,

for what you gave to me,

a heart that knows how to bleed.

(Before these social media chats, because of my great struggle as a single mom, I had hardened my heart. These chats cracked my heart; which allowed love in)

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
