    Born an amateur
    I had nothing to compare
    The affair of love
    As a story-tale fable,
    Or genuine and sincere,
    Rose petals falling to the floor,
    Mi amor, the star of my prayers,
    Or a fading love vanishing into air.

    I stood there
    As a questionnaire,
    Having a spiritual affair,
    Between hope and despair,
    Honour and disgrace,
    An amateur,
    Unable to distinguish,
    Lies from the truth.

    One look at the heavens,
    That lay behind your eyelids,
    I glared into the depths of truth,
    The purity of light,
    Reflecting from your pupils,
    A masterpiece of reality,
    A soul of pure sanctuary,
    I became a connoisseur
    Of my own destiny.
    A savant painted,
    In your eyes’ purity,
    An expert in scientific chemistry,
    A master of integrity,
    A profesor of love literature,
    A chef, a connoisseur, of the finest recipe.

    Glancing at the nighttime stars,
    Starry vision under the moon’s crescent,
    Counting stars with each loosing memory,
    Wondering if this is happenstance,
    Circumstance,
    Or heaven’s destiny,
    Wide-open sky, seeking and guessing,
    The reason why the stars shine,
    The brightest in the darkest expression,
    Ship stranded island, wreckage,
    Crashing waves engulfing me,
    Stranded on this island,
    of broken dreams,
    Still listening for your voice in the wind,
    Ship fading into the sky
    Destiny broken hearted,
    Happenstance,
    Circumstance,
    Heaven’s destiny.

    Counting each star as a blessing,
    With the clarity of God’s direction.

    Our forbidden poetry,
    Once filled an island,
    Named crushing,
    Waking to the sunrise of each other,
    Breathing in the breeze of lovers,
    The trees covered,
    Our temptation,
    The Garden of Eve,
    Serpent dancing,
    To the intense drum beat of sin,
    Calling each other’s name,
    With the breeze
    Of seduction,
    Heaven listening,
    to the heavy breathing,
    Of our own destruction.

    Truth revealed in the stars,
    God’s light shining,
    A criminal spotlight,
    On our naked bodies,
    Happenstance,
    Circumstance,
    Or heaven’s destiny.

    Knees buried in the sands,
    Arms lifted praying hands,
    Seeking forgiveness,
    From the skies,
    Ship drifting,
    Us apart,
    I still listen for your voice,
    In the nighttime stars,
    Each time I pray
    For the strength,
    For purity to return to my heart.

    An illusion as deep as the ocean,
    I called it love,
    In the delusion of seduction,
    You called it lust,
    Under the hope of glutton.
    No matter what we named our island,
    The heaven’s were watching,
    Our movement of shadows,
    Under the candlelight,
    Breaking the truth and light,
    Shattering the trust of true love.

    Happenstance,
    Circumstance,
    Or heaven’s destiny.

    Thanking God,
    For the stars
    of truth and forgiveness.

    Laying my head down in sorrow,
    Drifting away in the memories
    Beach waves leaving without a trace
    Footprints fading away
    Stranded on an island of displaced
    Looking up stargazed,
    Dreaming of our love again,
    Every cloud has a silver lining
    Speak of the devil,
    Here comes my trusted friend, loneliness,
    My heart crying wolf,
    Beating to the footsteps
    Of his lone tracks prancing the earth,
    Asking for healing,
    Broken heart curse
    Butterflies in my stomach,
    Nervous
    To desert
    A love once held deep in my soul
    I know hearts are
    A dime a dozen
    But it’s only your heart
    That I yearn for.

    Crying wolf to the beating of your heart,
    speak of the devil,
    here comes loneliness again,
    butterflies in my stomach,
    not wanting you to depart,
    I know hearts are a dime a dozen,
    but I only yearn for yours,
    prayers of us together,
    a silver lining in the clouds,
    Forever together,
    Your heart still beats with mine.

    Captured by your stargaze eyes
    Captured by your stargaze eyes
    Enlightened soaring my radiating love
    Enlightened soaring my radiating love
    My stargaze eyes captured by your soaring, enlightened, radiating love.

    Heavenly love awakening of soul
    Heavenly love awakening of soul
    Lightening sparked the ecstasy colliding stars
    Lightening sparked the ecstasy colliding stars
    Soul sparked ecstasy lightening the awakening heavenly love of stars colliding.

    We became one under the moonlight
    We became one under the moonlight
    Dancing horizon intertwined endless sky
    Dancing horizon intertwined endless sky
    Moonlight dancing under the sky, we became one endless intertwined horizon.

    One soul enlightened, my awakening sky, horizon of love radiating by your stargaze eyes,
    lightening sparked the dancing ecstasy
    soaring under the moonlight colliding stars, endless heavenly love,
    we became captured intertwined.

    Waves echo my voice,
    Purify humanity,
    Tides sing through my soul.

    Calm shores destine dreams,
    One peaceful and plenty stream,
    Without thirst, all drink.

    Mom and Pappa fish,
    Equally bringing food home,
    None hungry, all fed.

    Home by the river,
    Blessed, storytelling at night,
    Peaceful, star and moon.

    One child’s teardrop falls,
    Along the distant shrill shores,
    Roaring waves, anger.

    Earth cracks, Heaven cries,
    Wind beats shriek through the hurt trees,
    Tears drown, ocean floods.

    Mother Earth cries pain,
    Her children suffer silent,
    Domestic Violence.

    My knees hit the floor,
    My palms grabbing for strength,
    Gripping in prayer,
    For any sense of faith,
    Blood splattered upon my lip,
    I could taste,
    His jealousy,
    His rage,
    His punishing fist,
    For the crime I committed...
    Being a woman.

    His fist pounded my face,
    Tears and blood,
    My vision faded out of love
    And into being a prisoner,
    My jaw cracked
    From the pounding smacks
    Across my chin,
    My pleas for my life,
    Silenced once again,
    In the breath I held,
    In the punishment for my sin,
    For the crime I committed...
    Being a woman.

    My arms bruised and scarred,
    My face disgraced
    Tattooed by his violence,
    Across my waist,
    Raped
    Disgraced
    I begin to hate
    My own fate,
    Til death do us apart,
    Branded by scars,
    Imprisoned without a trial,
    The punishment to the face,
    For the crime I committed...
    Being a woman.

    My knees hit the floor,
    My palms grabbing for strength,
    Gripping in prayer,
    For any sense of strength,
    Being a woman of faith,
    Trying to fight with prayer,
    Against his jealousy and rage
    His anger and hate,
    My eyes swollen shut,
    But God could still see my pain
    The scars of our wedding ring
    Upon my skin
    My children listening
    Shivering,
    My home broken
    The blood trickling from my skin,
    The punishment,
    For the crime I committed...
    Being a woman.

    The power of prayer,
    the power of the pen..

    Dear God,
    Let domestic violence come to an end,
    Give each victim,
    Back his/her freedom,
    Love without scars,
    Prayers to the stars,
    Thanking all for joining hands,
    In this movement to change lives.
    Amen

    Love,
    Jeniayn

    It has been a little over a year since I joined Mirakee. Throughout this year, I have had the honour in connecting with so many beautiful poets, writers, authors, singers and artists. There is so much talent that has truly touched my heart.

    In connecting with co-writers, I have also learned true, real struggles that writers have faced or are facing in their lifetime (disability, disease, mental illness, depression, poverty, lack of employment, difficult school exams, natural disasters and violence). I also listened to the stories of overcomers and survivors.

    With each story, each struggle and each poem, I felt the need to do something inspirational with my writing.

    I have since formed Dominion Life International, Inc., a non-profit business, registered in the State of Delaware, U.S.A. with the purpose of inspiring all styles of talent throughout the world.

    I have been blessed with several donations that I have allowed me to gift inspiration back to our international community. I have been blessed to gift a computer for writing, studio equipment for a spoken word artist, school entry fees, poetry contest entry fees and several small cash donations to help those seeking to advance their writing career.
    Non-monetary gifts have also been given through the assistance of self-publishing, encouragement to keep writing and writing scholarships to universities for those seeking to study abroad.

    Dominion Life International, Inc. is currently teaming up with international musicians, artists and poets to raise awareness on the issue of domestic violence. I welcome you to be a part of this movement and family bringing awareness worldwide.

    I just wanted to take time out today to thank each one of you for the inspiration in forming Dominion Life International, Inc. This has truly been a dream come true.

    Love always,
    Jeniayn

    Our first impression
    Was every blessing
    That I prayed for under the heavens,
    You grasped my shyness
    In your arms
    Tossed out any doubt
    Of he loves me, he loves me not,
    Flower petals still formed
    The most amazing love song sung
    The way you breathed every word
    Of mine deep into your soul
    Like you were listening
    To the sound of my trust
    Echoing from the naked earth,
    Your eyes peered into mine
    Awaking a love so divine
    The sky welcoming the morning light
    Love’s reflection
    Over the pure waterfalls,
    The way you imprinted promises
    Of forever,
    Drawing hearts upon my skin,
    Leaning in,
    For our first kiss,
    Inhaling all my scars
    Breathing new life into my heart.
    Your first impression
    My every blessing
    That remains as love
    in my heart
    forever

    Heaven’s Gate

    Almighty,
    Forgive my mistakes,
    Erase my disgrace,
    Wipe away every tear
    That falls from my face,
    I kneel in shame,
    My scars remain,
    My heart surrenders to blame.
    I knew the way,
    I knew how to pray
    I allowed myself to go astray,
    I am everything
    You never wanted me to be.
    But thank you Lord
    For saving me.
