Poem: Athena

……………. when you were a little girl,

Your mommy and daddy,

saw you as their world:

They cuddle, kiss, rock you,

Sang to you, play, twist & twirl,

Your golden hair—your golden curls:

In their eyes and unsaid words,

You were their beautiful pearl:

Athena, when you were a little girl,

Mommy and daddy was very proud,

And protect you from all the mishaps;

Of the world and still today in their hearts:

You are more than what they deserved!

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!
