Biography of Myra Jefferson

I have been writing poems for as long as I can remember, probably as a response to learning poetry in school. English was my favorite subject! While raising a family, pursuing careers, (I am a teacher and an ordained minister) poetry got pushed into the background. Recently, some hard events in my life, have acted as the winepress, to squeeze my poems out and back into the forefront. I write all types of poetry, and some song lyrics, (which have been recorded by gospel artists) , but I only will post the so-called 'real poems' for poets!

Sister Paradox

My scream is only a whisper
Don't play my game
My cry is only a whimper
Sister Paradox is my name
Do you see me? I don't think so
Can you feel me? I say 'no'
Poster child for the struggle
An invincible queen
A fragile bubble
