“Happy” a poem, by Author G. D. Grace

This morning I

Heard you whispering in my ear and I

Thought for a second that I might be hearing things and I

Started feeling down and helpless and I

Felt like crying because I couldn’t understand how I

Got to this place again where I was doubting myself and I

Thought about grabbing that liter of Vodka and I

Thought about scoring some of that dope and I

Thought about downing some pills to ease the pain and I

Looked outside and got depressed from all of the rain and I

Screamed out loud and started hitting things and I

Stomped my feet and started feeling things and I

Paced the floor and grabbed my head in agony and I

Couldn’t pull myself together but I kept trying and I

Looked up towards the sky and called out to God and I

Dropped down to me knees and begged for mercy and I

Purged myself in a moment of prayer and I

Allowed all the tears to flow without wiping them away and I

Started to feel this warmth inside of me and I

Looked outside and saw that the clouds were dissipating and I

Caught a glimpse of the sunny and blue and I

Got up from off of my knees and smiled and I

Staggered over to the door to open it and I

Felt a cross breeze flowing past me and I

Recognized just how much he loves me and I

Got goose bumps all over my body and I

Looked behind me and saw the image of pain just rotting away and I

Felt relived and renewed and energized and I

Just want you to know how grateful I am for this life and I

Know that if I ever need you you’ll always be there for me and I

Cannot thank you enough for all of the love you’ve shown me and I

Know that if no one else loves me the way I need to be loved that I

Will always have you and I

and I

yes I

am Happy….

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
