Poem: I Will Wait For My Change

Some speak elaborate words that woo many to their side:

Some speak in silence that touches the Universe, way above the sky;

Some speak with many tongues reaching many nations,

While some speak using sign language—not at all;

Some make promises that win, true love over,

to carry them to beautiful places none as ever travel—so far:

Some make promises as a diversion, never follow through,

And break most young hearts:

Some stand back, watch and observe, and pray—with a kind heart,

And let God help save those who were used, broken—in our  flaws:

Some soar; go the distant, without expectation or a reward;

I sing and sing to my soul—my God who has taken me this far,

And working, in his own timing, to change my habits,

—to change my heart!

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!
