I Opened My Eyes and What Did My Eyes See

I opened up my eyes and what did my eyes see

They saw a pretty, brown woman staring back at me.

That pretty brown woman lost a lot in life

She even lost her husband, she’s no longer his wife.

But I opened my eyes again and what did I see

A woman jumping out of a box and she looks like me.

She jumped out of complacency

She jumped out of fear

She jumped out of low self respect

She jumped out of care

When I look back at the mirror what did I see

I saw a pretty brown pairs of eyes looking at me.

They liked what they saw. A face all anew

Because I jumped out of that box a brand new you me.

I wrote this poem because I am on the verge of my 49th birthday and I have had myself stuck in a box. That box got built by what others thought I should be for them to get their ministries started. That box got built by what others thought I should be doing for their businesses. That box got built with people taking my gifts and pimping them, all along, my gifts and what I wanted to do, went on the back burner. I AM WORTH IT, JUST LIKE THE NEXT PERSON, BUT i JUST DIDN’T KNOW IT. 
MY GIFTS AND TALENTS WILL MAKE ROOM FOR ME.THE WORD OF GOD TELLS ME SO. SO NO MATER WHAT THE NAY SAYERS SAY, LET THEM SAY IT. CLOSE YOUR EARS TO THE NEGATIVE AND ROLL WITH THE POSITIVE. CLOSE YOUR EARS AND EMOTIONS AWAY FROM THE JEALOUSY AND JEALOUS WORDS SPOKEN. LET YOUR MOUTH PRONOUNCE OVER YOURSELF WHAT EVER GOD HAS PROMISED YOU SO THAT YOU CAN GO FORTH AND GET IT DONE. AMEN.
