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


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
