Conflicted

In and out, up and down
all around, like a merry
go around, a rotating door,
you came and went, I let
you in back again.
In and out, up and down,
all around like a merry
go round, I lost my love,
I lost my crown.
I hear laughter, jokes,
“How mean, unkind, I was,
foolish I was, silly me
trying to escape, be free,
looking for love outside
of me.”
In and out all around, up
and down like a merry go
round, guess who? Its’ only
me. This is my body, my mind,
my heart, my soul, my spirit,
my life….”this is what you’re
messing with,” And you wonder
why I am the way I am, why I
set you free, why I want to be
free from the ‘mess’I let in me.

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.
