Poem: I Met A Woman

I met a woman who I didn’t understand:

She spoke soft, loud, she spoke strong,

When she walks, her steps made many songs;

Win hearts, she won her man:

I look at that woman and I didn’t like,

Some of her verse, some of her songs;

Still she held her head high, never back down,

And when she walks, she walks with a flow,

And a command:

I look again and I began to understand

That she represents me and I represent her,

all along; and I began to ‘love that great,

Perceptive and powerful woman!

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!
