and named names
we shouldn't have

we stood when
we should've sat

we spoke instead
of listening 
and plotted instead
of trusting

and we wonder, 
with confused tongues
when we should know

we did this
to ourselves
we did this
to each other

#poetry #poetrylovers #poet #author #poetrycommunity #learning #openmind #life #faith #LivingGod #mindfulness #Jesus #inspiration #journal #growth #spirituality #womenoffaith #roshanjames  #writingcommunity #bookstagram #books Very similar to parenting, launching a book takes a village... a team of compassionate and creative communicators who weave together into a network of support and encouragement. I am blessed to call this group of 17  men and women my team πŸ™πŸ’– Representing different countries and nationalities, they have a shared passion for service and for uplifting people around them. As we get closer to the launch on Sept 1, the team will be posting their responses to the poetry included in the book. Check out their feeds for their thoughts and comments, and to see the other inspiring posts they share! To my team members, thank you so much for your time and willingness to be involved in getting this book project off the ground! I couldn't do this without each of you πŸ’– πŸ’– πŸ’– Book launch team: @mrscassandragay, @mandy.inspired @hstrymkr99 @heather_a_hancock @erin_anastasia @thejanellekeith @tamibug @angelamhawkins @ewekiiss1217 @lena.731 @lucypearlle @jamesjordan6232 @kimberlylizethvarela @lauraannehayward, Bishal Baishya, Irish Galarrita and Bongiwe Mabaso Global relevance

Brother, I love the rhythm and flow of your lines, and your impeccable ability to weave imagery. I look forward to reading more of your poetry πŸ’– Burn

Dear Patrick, I love you and I hope you have the happiest of birthdays. All the kids and I are blessed to have you in our lives. You are the kindest, gentlest, most unconditionally loving man I know. I'm thankful we get to celebrate you today, but I'm even more grateful that we get to spend every day together, laughing and enjoying our time, and caring for each other when things aren't easy. Love you always πŸ’–
