I Am a Woman

I am a woman who dream.
I am a woman who love.
I am a woman who wishes to
smile everyday as the creases
of my lips try to keep a frown.
I am a woman who hope.
I am a woman who pray
yes/i/pray/for/not only
world peace
I pray for inner peace.
I am a woman who dare
even when life’s struggle
tries to sap away the joy of
i/refuse/to/stop breathing
I refuse/to/give/up.
And if you could see the deep
you would/only/find/that
I am /a woman
A simple

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.
