Sometimes I think

Sometimes I think I Am alone,
left out, wronged and life
seems so unfair
Sometimes when I see others
soaring and life seems so
tiring, weary and ugly

Sometimes when I look at you
and you do not smile back at
me I wonder how your life is,
Is it worse than mine?

Sometimes I think I am alone
when ‘false love taken the
best out of me

Sometimes I think the road
I took, “was it to really
strengthen or make me
bend on my knees?

Sometimes I feel as if God
deserted me and “Karma’
seems so long and I am
unworthy to even speak
his name like I wish
to do freely

Sometimes I feel life is too
hard, too unsafe and he showed me
how bless I am, it could be worse,
each day I see

Sometimes I think I am alone
Then I hear so many people
lonely, dying, sick and do
not have much to eat
Then I see you pushing forward,
rising higher, greater
even in harsh uncertainty,
You remind me to rise,
You remind me to believe
You remind me to push forward,
smile brighter, laugh even more
You remind me I am important
and you make me see “I Am” Love
and that ‘love’ truly is
the greatest thing in me.

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.
