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 was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
