Black, brown or white,

I am great in God’s eyes:

I am not less even if I am a mess,

I am great in God’s eyes:

I am great just like you,

Respect is always due;

To my ancestors that made,

The way for me and you;

I am goddess, even in my blues:

I wish the best for you;

although we’ve part, I thank you,

cause you have help me grow

and that is true;

I am a goddess—especially,

when I am with the great me,

and the great you!

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!
