A short conversation…….

Three small babies I was overjoy

Till my journey—

I didn’t know what it takes

To be a woman; much less a lady

I fought to keep them by my side

Not knowing the battle was not for me

I found out in disgrace: it was a role play

Of deception to have me

‘malice ‘caused’ you and I not to be a devotee!

When I was lonely—it was me and my  three babies

We were blinded by lust, pillow talks, sweet caress,

and jealousy

that betray you, betray me,

prayers save us from our enemy

the ‘traps to break us’ to turn us crazy.

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.
