Poetry: Like a Hurricane

By Monica C. Voskamp


Don’t hold back

Don’t live regrets

You can’t rewind time

But you can give today 

Love the size of a hurricane.


Don’t pause, don’t wait

Till you wake up one day

And wonder why you didn’t

Ever take the chance before.

If you hold back too long

You just might miss your chance

To give what you can right now

Love like a hurricane.


Don’t wait and skip your mark

Don’t suddenly walk away

Take charge, go straight on in

Give hope with open arms

Give what no one can ever buy

Love like a hurricane.


It only takes a moment

To lay down your pride

It only takes a moment

To live a different life

But the choice is yours to make

Give what nothing else can replace,

Love like a hurricane.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love.  💞

Poetry: Mercy

By Monica C. Voskamp


When all I had was the ugly

Painting my life

You stepped in.



When all I felt was the dark

Pushing me down

You came to me.


Mercy you had mercy

On me

Mercy you had mercy

A gift for me.


You took me in

Gave me relief

You gave me more

Than I deserved.


You took the weight

Of my humanity

You took it all

Left none for me.


Mercy, you had mercy

On me.


Thank God Mercy

Didn’t hesitate

Didn’t think twice

To surrender for me.


Mercy just did what’s it’s made to do,

Mercy came and bridged the gap

Mercy was ready with a miracle

Cause Mercy knew me & you.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤

Poetry: Crystal Clear

By Monica C. Voskamp

You love me

And I love you.

I didn’t have to earn your approval.

You just do

Approve of me,

Quite obviously.


You approve without me asking

You look my way and I know

You are smitten.

And there’s no where you’d rather be

Then right here with me.


That is love.

Love wants to be

Right where I am.

I didn’t force you

Beg you, manipulate you

I just was me,

And you stepped in

And are here loving  me

As I am, for who I am.


I look at you

And I’m glad you are here with me.

I’m glad you are here

Not because I want you to be

But because you chose to be

Here with me.

I smile now because I know,

With you,

 I don’t have to convince myself.

It’s crystal clear:

You love me.


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. 💕
