Leslie Alexis Poems
All Things Lovely
Lovely things begin with the sunshine. Her rays illuminate faces So that smiles can be seen. Her love so bountiful
I Am Christ's
In Heaven, at the right hand of God I’ll sit, I haven’t been there, but my eyes can see it. Adorned in righteous robes, I’ll stand by the king. I will see angels flying with their angelic wings.
Be Safe, Angel
The wailing tunes of the long lost child. Her father’s ways the cause of her cry. So many lovely young ones wish to die. Because they know not love, tears fill their eyes.
Freestyle (Jesus vs. Satan)
Satan first. Man you're all that and more, You love the rich, the sick, and the poor.
Christmas (A Sestina)
Christmas is here, Jesus to the world brought peace Everyone is rested as kids spend time with family Kitchens are ablaze, wives creating good ol’ soul-food Leslie and Destra, await their turn, under the mistletoe
The howling wind that has no life, Seeks my own with both blood and knife; But in my God I will stand strong, And if It think it’d win, it's dead wrong.

The Meaning of Easter (Christmas)
I was heading down the road of destruction, I mean the path was so clear, there was no obstruction But on that faithful day, Jesus stepped in the way
Thank you Jesus, for salvation-giving
I had a vision of Heaven/ and oh! What a marvelous thing/ God didn’t show me the gold/ for he said, this should not be my goal./ Instead I was brought in the presence/ of my God and our king/ where eternity’s choirs sing/ Glory! Honor! and Praise! unto him./ You should have been there./ Man woman and child jump and cheer./ The tambourine, flute and cymbal./ Earthly instruments/ heaven had them all./ Hallelujah being sung near and far/ allover./ Drums, saxophones steel pans/ we had a holy ghost shebang!
Love More Than Love Could Recall (Double...
The sound says love is not a crush; As one we moved from plain to dote. The love became more than a blush. You are my boo, that is my vote.
Fake it until you feel it.
Try it until you believe it.
Do not let depression get you down.
Fight it into the ground.
Force the face to smile.
Out of old birth a child.
New days are on the horizon.
Push harder and keep pushing on.
Fake it until you feel it.
