Poem: Change

Would you love me still?

If I was born in New England,

Speak in tongues of many nations,

Dance like a graceful—swan,

Walk like I own the best pavilion:

Would you love me—still?

If I change my style of speaking,

to fit in: to be somewhat like you?

Then, I will try my best to love you,

even when it may feel like,

the hardest thing to do!

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!
