As I conversate with u

As I conversate/with you/brother
U stood still/in your own world
Trying to convert me
can’t understand my reasoning
dialect, various hairstyle, everchanging
style, locks upon my head
Have u feeling uneasy/too politically
So u said…
Desperately/u trying to figure
Me/out/wondering my stance
As we exchange words
I stand erect/not afraid to express
That I am fed up of being describe
as another/angry feminist/ sistah
but I am for a cause/the warrior
of truths/and rights
for my beloved father/Jesus Christ
some called him/Abba/Allah, Jah, Ra,
Yahweh and Jehovah
Maybe u can’t handle the truth
cause if u/did/u would overstand
it goes way back into history
taking u back/in time/I see u brother
standing by/helplessly
while I am being victimized/name calling
by my own/as I try to hold back my tears.
My hair, whether its bald, shave,
roots on my head
should not offend u
When as I speak
someone is being
beaten/to death/while u fret
about my appearances
from a/growing tree/branching out
I am moving forward/not backwards
to my destiny
As I conversate/with you brother
What distinguishes u from me?
Is that I am a woman/follower
Of the Most High living God
Not disguising/myself/representing
Many sisters/brothers/who dare to
Speak up/be bold/taking a stance
To be different/I am a true sistah
Even if you can’t see in me
Won’t believe in me
Even if you don’t like me
I love you still my beautiful brother
as I hold you in my thoughts
to love me beautifully as I should!!

Empress M.

I move forward in love!

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.
