at this point in my life I can truthfully say that I voyage.

on the river of life i have often gotten lost by

sailing in the wrong direction, but

it is only now, at this period in my

life, that i can see how perfectly

God was steering me on my voyage.

to Him, i was never lost,  so, i would, first of all,

like to thank God for all He has done for

me because i know

it was only Him that has kept me alive

time after time - day after day.

secondly, i would like to thank the

people that i've met along the way. i

would like to thank you - my friends and

followers here on AD, twitter,  facebook and


we follow each other and i am glad that you are all

a part of my life. I do appreciate you so much. i am

grateful  for your understanding of my situation at

this time and for every word you take

the time to write to me.

but it is not just the good relationships that i

 appreciate because i can hardly think of

your kindness and not think of the many

unkindnesses i have encountered in my life. 

however, even from enemies, i've been taught so

many important first hand, hard lessons...lessons

that were necessary for me to learn. 

i can't help bringing my

father  to mind. i don't ever remember seeing him

but he has played a huge role in

shaping and molding me. with his absence i

developed a driven determination to survive and

though at one time my will to live was sustained by

negative behavior, i have now learned to turn 

  negative actions into positive power. so,

thanks dad.

AD is my home. the first place where i found

i could 'breathe' outside of my cell.

 and i am surrounded

with so many gifted and talented

writers and poets, whose work i do

admire and enjoy and who have

truly been the very best friends i've

ever known. i am humbled

by the extent of the response here and

on twitter.  the  love extended 

through the many comments that i received 

have been a source of inspiration for me. 

of course, i would be amiss if i didn't

mention  how i've come to appreciate

some other individuals over  the years (some living,

some dead) who have inspired me with their lives.

there is; sean carter,  nosia  jones, frank sinatra,

sammy davis jr,  sydney portier, cary grant, billie

holiday, marvin gaye, common, tupac shukar,

duke ellington, stevie wonder, bill gates

and donald trombo.

and last, but certainly, not least, i am 

eternally grateful for the two

most important beings in my life; shaniah, my

daughter and joyce m bell, my mother.

My heart is, without question, with these two

remarkable females. one, gave me life

and the other...changed my life,


For all of your comments, tweets and reviews i

want you to know that

i will never forget you...all of you, because you 

give my life meaning, at a time when

the selfless act of caring is so hard to find.

thank you being a part of my voyage,

thank you for allowing me to be a part of yours

thank you, again - and again.

This is one of the BEST poems I ever read on the Den. It is a tribute to many and it goes full circle into the heart of your character Asa.
Keep up the fine poetic work. If you put enough in a book one day people will not be able to put your poetic words down.


May peace be with you and Christ blessings bestow you,

This is truly beautiful Asa...thanks so much for sharing this with me. God has truly been a great part of your life & has brought you through many hard time, as revealed in your writing, but he is the master of turning bad things into good. Bless you & never give up. God has been there for me through breast cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and so much more. Isn't it wonderful what a awsome God we serve ! God Bless...Pastor Janet Fears

I like what Ron said, Asa. "You are so welcome." I find your poems fascinatingly spare and at the same time hugely powerful. Whatever generous comments followed your poems, they were earned in my eyes. This one, this tribute to influences in your journey, is a gasp of beauty to me; for, not only have you gratitude for the positive, but also for the difficult. That is a maturity which is a state of grace. You have expressed this grace exquistely here. Thank you for the gift of this "In Appreciation" Asa. I love your words: "the selfless act of caring is so hard to find," and I agree with you that it appears in abundance here in the Authors Den community. Thank you for your part in this. ~~ Diana

Touchingly and beautifully put, Asa.
You are quite right - the selfless act of caring is indeed a rarity - but not extinct. Ad world is proof of that.
Take care

From the heart, Asa, and it touches my heart! God is using you here, and no doubt He is using you on Facebook and the other sites, too.
You are so special to Him--He has taught you so much about Himself.
I'm proud to know you!

You are so welcome. You are a wonderful writer and deserve to be a part of this writer's community. Like you, I have learned a great deal from the wonderful people I've met in my life. I couldn't write like I do without those experiences.

This poem is very heartwarming. I like the way it appears on the page. Did you use the small i for a purpose? I think it reflect the humbleness of you and your spirit. The idea of giving flowers while they can smell them is insightful. I really like this poem and it says a lot about where you are in your journey. Live in your spirit.
