M  is for the wealth you shower to I & I

Reminding us to develop the inner self

And achieving financial independence daily.

O  is for obedience that you taught us,

Regardless of who is wrong, leave the

Consequence to him and see the greater light .

T  is for the great teachers that helps us to rise,

To reconnect, to the truth of who we are,

Especially at times, when one feels

not in sync within.

H  is for spiritual happiness at the deep core,

Of our soul, when we are feeling very low;

Your presence, joy, erase all sadness within,

Allows us to know, we are whole.

E  is for elegance, a refined grace,

That move through us, a supreme elegance,

That is what you required of us, as a whole.

R  is for the spiritual race that we must run,

In a way that brings victory, that hinders our success

And walk with Christ, “I command this of I & I!”

All these letters are written out to remind us,

Supreme love, is what the world, should be!

Jah Rastafari, enlighten I & I !!

Happy Mother’s Day 2023 to all mothers, King Selassie!

About the author


I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College (M.E.C.); mother of three, grandmother and great grand. I love to read great books and listen to podcasts that uplift my consciousness; sharing historical view of the different shades of color, the various culture, the way we all are connected, the musical genius throughout the world and the works that are done to help us tap into ourselves and know that we are worthy. I also love to write poetry and sing. There was a moment that now phase in another aspiration of my life, I felt singing was a forum—a path to take, that helps to voice, express my thoughts, in time where I was struggling, battling something I did not understand and what I was going through; feeling unsupportive. Although, there was some support, especially from my love ones, the challenges I faced was mostly internal.
I am so grateful for the grace I have been given to be able to write my poetic thoughts, that is my freedom. I was a part of a journey that taught me lessons and motivate me that preparation is a must to face a world that may not be ready for a new rising star. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry. I especially wanted to give honor to my mother who is no longer in the physical, as well as my natural father for the knowledge of health before he departed from this planet. Also, I would like to thank you my supporter for being on this journey with me even at times when the journey seems unclear. May we appreciate the blessings that has been given to us, as we continue to soar, as we reach a place of true jubilee.
