A Poet once said.. Our values undress us and time bears our souls.

Background Information

Langston Hughes, Rudyard Kipling

  I have always loved poetry, however I have never considered myself to be a poet. I have memorized writings of poets but cannot recite one of my writings in its entirety. That is because I only write when something is on my heart. I express  heart felt feelings, then I move on. Later, when I share it with others, they say that was beautiful or nice. I smile and feel blessed.

  Poetry is a gift and an art. I am fortunate enough to have a small gift that I hope artistically, will develop into the what I believe poetry is;  A graceful art that is full of ones passionate desire to express him or herself in a melody of words and rhythm.

  I feel that my writings have helped to keep me sensitive to many of lifes issues. Having a career where sensitivity is suppressed in order to get the job done, can sometimes cause one to be detached from emotions. However, my writings keep me in touch with inner being. My children and God have helped me keep it real.

 I was born in Harlem. I am the fourth child of five siblings. My father passed when I was four. The Lord blessed with a beautiful mother of whom I wrote about in the Hattie Principles. I have been blessed to have her there for me. When I wrote the Hattie Princples, I read what my heart and hand placed upon a piece of paper. The most important thing I realized in re-reading this piece, was that my mother never taught me anything wrong. Because of that, my values, I believe, are of good moral character. My successes are the bi-products of her efforts.

 If there is one lesson I could pass on in this world, it would be one of the 10 Commandments; Honor thy Mother and thy Father, that thou days may belong upon the land which the Lord, Thy God, giveth thee.

 Honor brings about respect. Respect causes obedience. Obedience creates the  rewards of life.
