I am a poet, writer, reciter,

Survivor—guider; thanks to

my comforter whose presence,

takes me to a place that uplifts me,

higher and higher:

My spirit speak a language

Of poetic descriptive word,

conscious lyrics from the heights

of my Messiah:

—I am born to be conform,

to complete my purpose,

I am more than a commoner,

I am rich with blessings,

From the seed of Abraham,

A poetic great, regal messenger!

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!
