Oh Africa

Oh Africa I hear your land is rich
while many are poor upon the land
If that is true
Oh Africa I hear your men
and women dress in splendor
garments while many are poor
upon the land—if that is true
Oh Africa I watch your body
dance with freedom while many
are poor upon your land
if that is true
And you speak in language
some wish to understand
if that is true
Oh Africa i hear you are wise,
proud, sharp, beautiful
while many are poor upon your
land–if that is true
As you shout in Victory to your
success remember me, remember we
If that is true
Oh Africa I hear you’re rich
while so many are poor upon your
land–if that is true
In solitude I squibble this poetic
thoughts, as I think of you
Oh Africa I feel His greatness
As I kneel and pray for true
freedom to dance with you
I look deep within and I know
Who I Am, Oh great Africa.

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.
