To the strong men of Jamaica—-Muuuuuuuuuuwah!!!!!

Why I love my Jamaican man
his strength carry me through
his voice sings island lullaby
love songs to me even when he
is far away and I am blue
his smile brighten my world
when my tears falls, in his
silence he comforts me
Why I love my Jamaican man
he sees my fears and reminds
me “I Am with you always”
he loves me even when I turn
my back on him
in the distant I can feel
his presence
Why I love my Jamaican man
because when others dis-own
dis-respect, shame, scold me
when I am low, in my confusion
he is always there to catch me
reminding me of who I am—Jah Child
like a wind sweeping me off my feet
that’s why I love my Jamaican man.

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
