SHE CHRONICLES: “She” a poem by Felicitee Love

I want her to know that she is beautiful…

Imperfectly perfect…made in Gods image…

Breathtaking as the shifen waterfall

The Valley of ten peaks, the solitude in the Olympics….

Her beauty exceeds that of a rare blue morpho butterfly…

She is the coolness in the breeze…

She is the promise of tomorrow…

Her veins bleed forgiveness…

She is the very essence of love…

The reminder that angels do exist…

That prayer works…

She is the light at the end of the tunnel…

Trace her tears to find miracles…

Her smile to find God…Her eyes to get a glimpse of heaven…

Her faith is that of Job…she recognizes her greatness…

She is the beautiful colors of the rainbow…

She is Strength…she is resilience…she is kissed by the sun….

She is powerful…She is reason…she is life’s whisper…

She is Brave…She is a Conqueror…

She will fight to her death for what she believes in…

She is that feeling once you reach the top of a mountain…She is Dope…

She brings the thunder…she is a beast!!!…

She is unstoppable…

She Sees the beauty after the rain…

She is courage….she is our children’s keeper…

She is the epitome of fall down and get back up every single time because failure is not an option….

She is my sister, my inspiration, my reason to keep going in spite of…She is simply phenomenal…

She be WOMAN

FELICITEE…’To bring light and instant happiness”…sprinkled with a lot of LOVE… was born in Chicago Illinois. She now resides in Atlanta Ga. She is a writer, Actress, motivational speaker, Community organizer, humanitarian and advocate for Abuse, Child Rape and Domestic violence all of which she is a survivor. She wakes up each and every day to touch or inspire someone’s life. She understands that all smiles do not equate to happiness. She aspires to be the reason that someone didn’t give up, that someone feels loved, that someone feels encouraged. She wants to touch and change lives until the day she is no more. She feels that there is enough darkness in this world; it’s time for people to shed some light, lots of it! She founded “The Love Movement” which about Spreading Love, touching Lives, Encouraging, Uplifting and Inspiring Others. The Love Movement also does feedings for the “temporarily displaced”, Homeless is not used because there is power in your words. They also do clothing drives, haircuts and hairstyles, back to school drives as well as partnering with other organizations to make a difference. If you can be the reason that someone smiles, that’s an accomplishment. She endured so much pain in her life that her mission every day she is blessed to see, is to make a difference in the lives of others by spreading love. She started writing at the tender age of 9 years old and has yet to put down her pen. Writing saved her life “literally”. She is no stranger to pain, hurt and the many dark places that life can sometimes take you but she made the decision to never let those negative experiences define her nor her future. She writes to be the voice for those who are silent, for those who have no voice or feels that no one understands… She sugarcoats nothing! May her work inspire you, uplift you, motivate you, change you for the better or simply be that push that we sometimes need …She is on a mission to change the world! Her motto is: The dash between my date of birth and date of death has to speak volumes when I am no longer here!

SHE CHRONICLES: “But – I Fly” by Evelyn T. Keener

I went to Callaway Gardens and visited the Butterfly Garden. It was so amazing, peaceful, delightful and breathtaking. I found myself mesmerized by this one butterfly, so much that I followed her around the garden at least three times, before she settled down and allowed me to get a closer look at her. There was something about the color of her wings, they were a bright royal blue and stood out from all the other butterflies. I was immersed in her beauty. I found myself going on her journey, because I was taken in by her beauty and her flight – it seemed as if she was on a mission. It was like she was handling business – had something important to do. This butterfly didn’t have time to sit around- she had plans, purpose, goals, and if I wanted to be a part of it, I needed to follow her.

Ladies, this is how our lives should also unfold. We need to be immersed in our purpose and allow our beauty to shine from within.  It is then that our purpose grows, people see our determination, our vision and they want to be a part of it – to hook their wagons to ours. They begin to talk to us about it, follow us to and from our destinations, they want to get closer to us so that they can truly soak it all in. They want to be able to say “But – I Fly”. They want to release themselves from the cocoon and fly into their destiny, because they were inspired in and through us.

Why crawl when you can walk. Why walk when you can run. Why run when you can fly. When they tell you “You can’t do it.”- tell them “But-I-Fly.  Tell them “But-I-Fly on the wings of expectancy, and I expect that my dreams will come true; because I believe in the dreams and goals He (God) promised me.” You will then see how they begin to watch you fly, how your positive energy draws them in. How you will have a positive effect on others and propel them into their destiny, because you said “But – I –Fly”, and then you demonstrated to them a life lived in purpose and on purpose.
