Treat Dem nice,

Everything may be alright:

Treat Dem good,

You may just come out of the hood:

Treat Dem mean:

But…”be cautious, their wrath,

You may feel;

So give thanks, live up, don’t give up,

On God, ask HIM to help you, be kind,

Be kind; be kind—in your words, thoughts,

And in your deeds even if they appear,

to be mean!”

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!
