"The Big Day"

For the past several weeks I have been working with a group of young ladies that are contestants in the 2011 North Carolina Talented Teens Competition.  My role has been that of Speech Coordinator/Program Designer and Contributing Poet.  It is the day of the show and I am not feeling well at all....well as they say in show business.... "The Show Must Go On!" Here is my original poem..written for the girls...inspired by Genesis 29:17 "Leah had weak eyes, but Rachel had a lovely figure and was beautiful." This poem is written for Leah and is entitled Recognize...enjoy your weekend!


Do you not know? Have you not heard?

God is the final word.

His lasting decree spoken over me

A young woman of radiance, love and beauty

Established by the power released from His right hand

Unlocked potential to achieve more than most can

For my reach is far greater than any have seen

Secure in myself with high self-esteem

My worth holds more value than rubies or gems

Talented and confident, liberated from within

Community is important, I encourage those in need

To live a better life and my advice I pray they heed

Live up to your potential and never settle for less than best

Show up for every challenge and deliver nothing less

Offer all you have to give and your dreams will be fulfilled

Build your life on God’s foundation and your future will be sealed

Accept the blessing of His promise and make an oath to live His way

Grasp the beauty in each moment and always seize the day!
