The man who shares my heart

The man who shares my heart must be stronger than my inner strength. For within me, lives an enduring power that will trample he who doesn’t match it, no matter how weak I may become to his touch. He must be stronger than me because my spirit compels that. One who never doubts me nor my ability, nor feels the need to defeat or combat me but help me rise with him. For in and with him, I am enhanced to my fullest potential, and bring out the very best of my womanhood to create a greater man” – Donique C. Pérez

prayer for my son

May God grant you peace
in the midst of a storm.
May God give you strength even
when you’re forlorn.
May you answer the door when
Jesus comes knocking.
May wisdom guide when
your mouth is talking.
May discretion protect you
and keep you pure.
May you never stumble
or fall for a lure.
May your heart remain humble
to the very end.
May uprightness and truth
be what you defend.
May the world not ensnare
or change who you are.
May the light that’s within you
shine like the stars.
May angels surround you
body, spirit, mind.
May favor and peace be yours to find.
May rejection and pain
never reach you.
May your spirit grow bold
for what you’re called to.
