Happy New Year! Wishing everyone the best year EVER! Trusting that better days are ahead of us in 2021. Say Amen.
As many of you know, I just published my 3rd book “Just Sister Jackie, My First Collection of Poetic Observances” and I am truly excited about this new journey. I am just sitting here and I decided to give you a taste of poetry today. This one is fresh off the presses. It is aptly entitled “Leave me at the Altar.” Here we go!
Leave me at the altar Leave me at the altar Right there with my father The One who will embrace me since I am not perfect The One who accepts my imperfections With hopes that I will change I desire to change Those presumptuous sins Those things that keep us apart Those ways that Separate me from You That thorn in my side The one that I try to hide It can be rough and tough But you say thy grace is enough Thank you for understanding my plight I trust that You are right I will not be outlawed because of my blight I am already perfected in your sight Like JJ I say Dyn-O-Mite Friends and foes, I am not trying to be a martyr No need to make this any harder I am not here to barter Just leave me at the altar With my Father.
