“New Year, New Hope, Now you are here!”

“Breathe! Exhale!

New energy! New light!”

Make things right, make things clear:

Since the old have passed on, to a newer height;

my tears are less: I am bless!

—some may wonder why,

I miss the face I once knew;

Yet you are with me—to show me,

That there is a greater view:

Your presence always gives me life;

2021-1202 spirit moves me,

to a higher purpose,

The greatness of your light,

—Thank you, great intelligence:

“You have opened my eyes!”

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 higher God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness and love in me. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Peace and Blessings!
