…………Food, Food

Sometimes I am sick of you!

you love me more than I do

My belly, thigh, arms, face

looks sometimes like you

I’ll ask: is that all you can do?

Food, Food, Food

sometimes I need you!

Is there anything more better

than you?

Food, Food

Since you are here—I’ll say

You are so gracious; welcome

and thank you!!!

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.
