I am the star

I am one of the trillions, kissing the sky with poetic songs, rare, amongst the tallest, grandest trees,

My beauty is untouchable from the eyes, you need a magnify telescope to capture my tiniest size.

I may seem small, unimportant, insignificant, yet I am great, powerful, yes that’s me!

‘cause, I was design, shape, created, to shine in the darkest night.

 I am here, even if you cannot touch, nor see, how excellent I am, the brilliant me.

If you look deeper amongst the many, when found, you will be amaze,

I cannot be bought, nor sold, I am a priceless; greater than millions, smaller than a penny. 

Some has wondered, lost in their dreams, some have even forgotten my name, searching endlessly,

I am here as you dream, you’ll say, ‘awe’—oh I wish that could be—me,

when you’re gone, no matter what, “Still, I am here as you seek’’

where I am, so magnificent, all is love—there are no hate, envy, nor jealousy

And no name, *greater, grander, wiser than the breathtaking me; “Who I am?”

“I am the tiniest, yet grand, bright, morning star, morning light,

stand amongst the many, you wish, you could ever be!”

Empress Journee

*Honoring his Majesty


About the author


I am a mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, and a singer that love life. I was born in Jamaica West Indies from great parents, that believes in me, push me forward to achieve a degree. I was emigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. Although I did not reach the level I had aspired for myself to reach and meet great actresses and singers that make the United States of America a grander, refined and famous place to live, work and visit, due to health issues, the path I took; I am given the privilege to work on my mindset and self growth. Its a challenge, still I am grateful that I am becoming awakening to my own flaws and seeing the light of God's greatness. The support of my love ones, my faith, and people who believed in me, I am able to write these poetic thoughts. I also had the opportunity to meet wonderful, great, inspiring leaders that motivate me to think 'powerful and loving thoughts, and encourage me to see the great success in me. I struggle day to day to embrace the great and compassionate love God has for me. Yet my powerful God has never given upon me. I thank the divine supreme using giants, ministers, and various people to help develop what has been broken. I consider myself has a reflection of God's masterpiece in the making. I am working on strengthening all areas of myself and my spiritual gifts. "I live in peace, I love peace, I walk in peace, I am Peace!" This is what I speak and affirm to myself, wish for myself and for others. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts! Think Wisely, walk good, be at peace & a mighty blessings to all of you! Love Empress Journee!
