Poem: My Child

Across the ocean lies greatness my strong child

And I held you close across my shoulder

As I give thanks to the wind—to the blue sky

To the regal divine mother and father that form

Shape you and I

Across the ocean lies greatness even when

I cannot see the mystical paradise that was told to me

I am grateful for the blessings, the gift, I now can see;

That you are the bright shining star which was given to me.

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!
