A letter to my sisters

“Must I hold your hands in your ungodly ways?”

I confess, Jesus is the only way.

Even when we somehow forget to pray

in our plans, to stay faithful, fellowship,

love, laugh, walk in a godly way,

when times are tough or good,

God loves us anyway

in our romance, success—we may stray!

Somehow sisterly love seems so far away

in your needs, “I wish to say!”

don’t let greed divide the heart

rise and shine—God is the way!”

I miss you, the ego want to say: at times,

you seems loving, unfriendly,

when I feel you are far away—you display.

In your disguise that seems not so nice,

even in the distant, I am reminded

We are a family & you are my sisters

“So I must continue to pray

that God allows me to fall more in love

with him so I can love you day by day!”

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.
