#Poetry Lovers: Lioness

I recently performed at the Word Up poetry event in London and penned this poem, now I’d like to share it with my followers and hopefully inspire your lyrical genius! Have a listen to the video now and see if you’d like to come down a share some words next time.


No stress,

I raise my hands to the Lord feeling thankful and blessed,

Despite being put through life’s tests this lioness stays blessed,

Fights for her right to be happy,

To smile through a storm that shakes the world,

Strong is an understatement,

A lioness’ reign can last forever if done with humble power,

Make obstacles crumble as she lays the fundamentals for the life of a Queen,

And by no means does that mean inequality,

I want nothing but prosperity around me,

A lioness loves hard,

And hard is what my heart has been for oh so long,

On a new journey where I discover myself,

Find myself to be less of a mystery I previously couldn’t understand,

This lioness has taken her stand,

To be the best she can be in this bitter land.
