i am persuaded by your silence

         you are—bravery!

the intelligence of your guidance

the small, high & great cheek bones

your creation

Short, medium, tall, young and old

the length of your coarse, curly, straight,

dark—groom hair

the strength, shape of the rose tattoos

golden, sharp eyes,

like the stars amongst the sky,

shape somewhat like the mystical moon

       ‘You—inspire me!

to want the best in me, even when i may

        appear—silly & as a ‘fool,’

I am persuaded to want to know you,

      *fiery great spirit—brilliance you!

the blooming rose—display

     like prayers everyday

i wish to know you

I wish to love you

in your silence; the symbolic


*an self awareness

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.
