Poem: Believe

Written by empressjournee

I was young with dreams;

that seems impossible to speak:

so I wrote invisible words,

in the earth of my dreams;

My dreams vanish when I met him:

and the wind came, erase hope,

so I had to re-write a new dream;

my work became harder, the core

of my inner self felt low;

this time I had to drew strength,

believe, and trust in the silence:

that I should, “trust,  love large,

forgive, and there, true joy leap within!”

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!
