WHAT I YEARNED FOR
IT WAS YOUR HEART THAT I YEARNED FOR
IT WAS THE TASTE OF YOUR LIPS THAT I WOULD DIE FOR
IT WAS THAT FEELING OF YOUR SOUL MERGING WITH MINE…
THAT I NEVER FELT BEFORE
IT WAS THAT LOVE THAT BOTH OF OUR HEARTS
COULD NOT IGNORE
IT WAS THE WAY OUR SPIRITS CAME TOGETHER AND IGNITED
LIKE NEVER BEFORE
IT WAS HOW I FOUND MYSELF COMING BACK FOR MORE AND MORE
IT WAS HOW OUR INTELECTUAL MINDS CONTINUED TO SOAR
AND GAVE THIS THING CALLED LOVE ONE BIG ROAR...

For anyone who has ever felt… Seasons of My Soul ~ A Poetry Girl’s Prerogative will draw you in and make you feel again. More than just a collection of random poems, these words represent real life situations described in poetic, short story form. Thought provoking and engaging, the tales are honest and direct, no topic too taboo. “Mad as hell that he raped her of her innocence at only 12 years old, trading it for 25 years of drug addiction, low self-esteem and depression, one step forward, two steps back regression…”
Get ready for an emotional rollercoaster as Seasons of My Soul inspires self-reflection, acknowledging every emotion from lust, love, maternal (and even paternal) instincts, to anger, heartbreak and pride. From the first word to the last, the author takes you on a journey within, each poem resonating somewhere inside as if you have lived it all yourself. Don’t be surprised when you realize that at some point within these pages, you have done just that.
Encouraging, Inspirational Poems ~ My poems are for anyone who may be down on their luck, going through a storm – in need of some words of encouragement or just need to be uplifted. We never know who is going through what. So, some just grin and bear it, and try to do things for themselves. Some also don’t look like what they may have been through or may be going through; including myself. Our God is so awesome and amazing. He can change your life in the split of a second or a minute and turn things around for you. Some may need to hear that and need to know that they are not alone. My poems are to show what God can do for others, he can and will do for you.
My poems encourage you to never claim the devil. Always be strong when things seem to be hopeless, even when you think you can’t. I did a little rhyming to try and enhance them to be interesting, but more importantly, to get the point across about our God and how he will fix things in your life. Put God first and foremost in your life and he will show you continued favor. Sometimes that is easier said than done, but if it is God’s will, it surely will be done. Keep being faithful to him, believing in him, praising him, obey and be obedient to him, praying to him, and giving him the honor and the glory. And he will take you to a level that no man can touch. Just say to him “I give my hand and heart to you!!!” ~ Lynnette Shorts Kornegay
