Father, Lord of Divine being,
I Am your child!
I understand your greatness and I know I am loved,
Blessed, wealthy, masterfully formed, magnificent,
And powerful form— because of you:
Help me to truly love you the way you deserve,
Beautiful like your precious rainbow—the clouds, the sky,
The flowers that bloom, way beyond the eyes:
Increase my faith, so I can I uplift your children
Through songs, words, a tender touch,
A simple greetings and even in their ‘I do’s,”
Let my  walk, steps, voice, show your power;
Let the blazing fire of your eyes, remove,
Anything that tries to distort us from your truth:
You are my armor, protector, shield, my Great Lord
Of all greats
There is no failure in me, as long, as you are my Divine being;
I know all things work together for the greater good,
To serve your purpose and give me the Victory!
Thank You!

About the author


I am a proud mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, a singer, great cook, a lover of unique fashionable earrings, and love to wear & dress in a unique artistic fashion.
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 working for the Human Resource Admin, taught at an Head-Start and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. My career ended because of an overwhelming challenge of self-worth and depression I was facing; that took a long time to over come. However, the support of love ones and guidance of God, I was able to rise again and excel. I was able to connect more with my children and grand children to fulfill my destiny. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz, before she passed on, and other great leaders. I know all could not occur without the support of love ones and most of all God. I am growing everyday as I hope that I will be successful on developing a higher Christ consciousness of my mind. The work is hard however through the love of Christ I am embracing the love of self, honoring myself more and developing my character. I won't give up on myself. I consider myself a wildflower that love to bring joy to others. I am also working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts. Peace and Blessings!
