Prelude to Life.

Like a lamp in a box,

Abandoned at the shore ditch house,

Life takes on moments with ease

And never stops…

Like a beaming light,

it recedes with grasping hands.

Like a serenade to the soul,

fascicle of songs written in glass

and compiled with ease;

A roomful of songs

creating an inner magic

sweeter to the heart, yet mindful,

Revisiting ancient histories of pain

and the beautiful memories ever

Rekindled in our hearts

Sense’s pleasure and soul’s content

There is no brighter light

than the beauty it brings out in our hearts

and the flames that never even

in times of despair.



Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
