In My World- A poem

In my world,  there would be a place for me to always be free. 

In my world,  there would be a place to escape my frustration easily. 

In my world,  a woman could be who God designed her to be.  

In my world,  my faith would be as vast as the deep blue sea. 

In my world,  hope of a young girl would grow like branches on a tree. 

In my world,  a black man can be all he was meant to be without fear of brutality.  

In my world,  sisters and brothers are bound by loyalty.  

In my world,  we love one another fiercely. 

In my world,  a respected trait is honesty.

But in my world of creativity,  the words cruelty and envy there could never be.  BUT,  that my friends,  wouldn’t be REALITY…

Taneshia Brown, a native of New Mexico was born the second child of Howard and Fannie Baker. She was raised by both parents in a loving home with two other sisters. Although as a child she dreamed of becoming a lawyer, life would bring her to another passion – writing. This passion is demonstrated in her first book, “My Journey, His Purpose”. In "My Journey, His Purpose," the author relives both painful and difficult memories to unearth the power of God’s power and purpose. She began writing in high school a part of a post traumatic therapeutic regimen. As a rape victim, single mother, and domestic violence survivor, she fought through the low places in life to acquire several college degrees. She later sharpened her writing skills while blogging for The Examiner, and Jambalaya Magazine. The author has continued to rise from the ashes under the cover of God to volunteer, guest speak, start a non-profit organization, and now write her own memoirs in order to reach and teach others who have found themselves in similar circumstances. Her journey has taken her from a broken, battered, and lost shadow to a fulfilled, renewed woman, wife, mother, and survivor. Her unique voice speaks volumes to tragedy and triumph. Now she is here to blog about life and its intricacies.
