The Gift

The Gift By Alexis Pettway

I imagine it was wrapped in a tiny purple box with white ribbon tied around it
And the name read Alexis Denise Pettway
Hand crafted and molded by HIS hands
Perfected, Blessed and ordained by HIS words
Placed on a shelf with billions of other gifts waiting it's entrance into the world
February 26, 1989 into existence I Am!
I see that gift come alive, hop off the shelf and begin it's descend into a beautiful baby girl
7th grade I put pen to paper and the poem "God's work"; created the beginning.
And now my hand, my pen will only cease movement with my life ending
Because this gift runs through my veins, yes I'm a slave to poetry and I love it. Its MY gift it's my destiny

The readers, the followers, the books, the words...I will never forget
This dream made possible all started with a gift
