There was a woman named Dorothy,
who had a humble beginning
was a child who always strived,
dreamed a dream
which was to be free and exist in a loving world,
long away from the concrete jungle and demanding streets.
She aspired to reach new heights,
yet held reality in check
Success came but it was always short,
People came and went
some good and some bad,
but each serving as a lesson
a lesson in what,
and who was the teacher?
Yet she remained firm and true!
Heaven blessed her with a daughter,
and Dorothy became a Mother
and nobody could come in between,
However Dorothy’s time came
and it was far too short,
only 42 years old and with many dreams yet to fulfill.
Her legacy and beloved soul will always remain,
of a kind and caring woman with matching heart and grace.
*Dedicated to the one and only Dorothy Dandridge ( 09/10/1922-08/09/1965)*
This destination where neither planes or travel agents can claim,
an abode for the weary and dreamers
Will you come fly with me to this place called Moon
She is shy and only reveals herself in the night,
a bride in her wedding gown
waiting at the altar for her handsome groom,
This bright-eyed woman from this place called Moon.
Fly with me if you will,
but know that I don’t plan on returning,
rather I’ll spend my days in this place called Moon.
When I get older I know I’ll blessed
cause Lord knows how I survived these stress.
Whatever they were,
Neither fulfilled or sought
rather I spent my time running away from these morbid thoughts.
I hope when I get older
my essence may still be clean and remain pure.
When I get older,
I hope I can see it, smell it,and believe in it’s entirety
from sunrise to sunset and everything in between.
I write these words, straight from my heart
with the will to carry on.
To tomorrow and its offspring
Dream BIG and widen your horizon
Reality may be bleak but its just a reflection of our hearts
The good and the bad in it,
but dreams can be shaped
however you wish
and its yours to share or keep.
