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 am a mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, and a singer that love life. I was born in Jamaica West Indies from great parents, that believes in me, push me forward to achieve a degree. I was emigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. Although I did not reach the level I had aspired for myself to reach and meet great actresses and singers that make the United States of America a grander, refined and famous place to live, work and visit, due to health issues, the path I took; I am given the privilege to work on my mindset and self growth. Its a challenge, still I am grateful that I am becoming awakening to my own flaws and seeing the light of God's greatness. The support of my love ones, my faith, and people who believed in me, I am able to write these poetic thoughts. I also had the opportunity to meet wonderful, great, inspiring leaders that motivate me to think 'powerful and loving thoughts, and encourage me to see the great success in me. I struggle day to day to embrace the great and compassionate love God has for me. Yet my powerful God has never given upon me. I thank the divine supreme using giants, ministers, and various people to help develop what has been broken. I consider myself has a reflection of God's masterpiece in the making. I am working on strengthening all areas of myself and my spiritual gifts. "I live in peace, I love peace, I walk in peace, I am Peace!" This is what I speak and affirm to myself, wish for myself and for others. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts! Think Wisely, walk good, be at peace & a mighty blessings to all of you!
