If I was a Ballerina

If I was a ballerina
I would leap in your arms
While you stand like a King
I would twirl with grace
Gentle to soft melody
I would be like a swan
Moving quietly
If I was a ballerina
Each dance would
be meaningful to you—only
If I was a ballerina,
For now I will pretend
I am yours
I am your
Royal Black ballerina.

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.
