Did You Say

……………….what’s there to see, beyond the trees?

Nothing has change lately!

broken down homes, cold face, not so friendly,

in your community, freedom we cry, black lives

must survives—it is our legacy,

Vote! Vote! Vote!

Vote for me—Let change be the key,

To unlock bias and racial discrepancy,

Change this, change that; change me!

Jesus you must seek—we plead!

Look at the sky, your fingers, toes, sight,

your whole body: still you cannot see,

Look at your face, your smile, the innocent child,

Rewrite a new history: that’s ‘good for you

And right for me; With God life is complete,

you have more than some, can’t you see!

Wealth beholds u, my fair lady!

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.
