Unfortunately, I couldn’t post a special poetry feature last Sunday, so I’m lumping the two poems in this post. I apologize for that!
I decided it would be nice to write a poem for Jacob, one of the secondary characters in To Die Once. I thought it would add flavor to the poetry series hearing his reasons for his actions poetry style. Here it goes!
How do I get it Right?
I won’t give up the Fight
Or let my prey out of Sight
It is the only way to Light
I will sink hard with a mean Bite
When I get him in the right Site
Whether it’s a million or a Mite
I’ll secure it with any Rite
I dream of a home that’s a Loft
With cushions, settees—round and Soft
One that’ll make me feel like I’m Loft
Whatever the cost, I’ll pay—hard or Soft
~The Grace Race~
Tis the season for Grace
So get in the Race
In line with God’s Pace
And be laced with His Grace
What better day than Today
In this month of May
It’s like making Hay
When the sun’s bright in the Day
So straighten your feet, walk the Path
Swing your arms, do the Math—
Grace makes me clean like a Bath
Such mercy in being placed in the Path.

About the Book
Two men, one woman, a rosebush …
… a terrible past, an uncertain future
Jennifer, a woman unexpectedly trapped in a path of love and passion against everything she believes.
Rodrigo, a man set to get what he wants at the cost of what matters most.
Stefano, a man with a past, a story to tell and passion to offer.
Chidi, a friend in need, a friend indeed. Or not?
From a culture where good girls follow the norm and live as they’ve been told, Jennifer is no different from any other girl until by happenstance, she meets and falls in love with Rodrigo, a man who’s handsome, rich and foreign. Different. She has no idea who he is or what he does, and is swept into a world of romance and passion. It is not long before she discovers a shocking truth that shakes both her world and his.
Then he is gone.
Stefano shows up at a time when Jennifer has made up her mind about the rules of life. He thinks she’s beautiful and is in love with her. In a bid to convince her to give him a chance in her life, old memories once buried are brought to life. And the events that follow don’t leave anyone unaffected by the truth of the past that was left unsettled.
Meanwhile, Jennifer with her friend Chidi, find themselves on a self-discovery journey that has one of them raising questions.
Some just have to ask, where is God in all this?
… an inspirational romance, from Lagos to Italy.
