Poem: My Father is a King

I was told, my daddy is a King that I should not worry,

Because I am blessed, just worship him:

During the good times, bad times, there is no me, without HIM;

Hold my head high, even if it seems, I was not chosen,

To wear a sacred golden ring:

I must remember, the cross, he is working out all things;

I am sealed by his love and will have a place at his seat,

When it is the time to meet HIM:

I was told I was beautifully formed, in my mother’s womb;

That greatness lies in me, and in God’s word there is no deceit,

That I am wealthy & free, brought with a prize, by the blood of Jesus Christ who beholds me:

That every tear drops fall, my comforter sees, and will forever stand by me:

So I walk bold, gentle, strong, into my destiny, even if I or no one can see

—the many grand things, that he has prepared, lay out, just for me:

I am a diamond—rare, royal, irreplaceable; I am unique, this I told myself every day,

I remember love beholds me; So I pray to HIM, speak life, this promise over me, my love ones,

And the few who eyes behold HIM,—with the approval of God, I am unstoppable, unbreakable,

Because he loves, has blessed, save me: He is my Victorious, Wonderful, Awesome daddy, my blessed King!

I am a mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, and a singer that love life. I was born in Jamaica West Indies from great parents, that believes in me, push me forward to achieve a degree. I was emigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin 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. Although I did not reach the level I had aspired for myself to reach and meet great actresses and singers that make the United States of America a grander, refined and famous place to live, work and visit, due to health issues, the path I took; I am given the privilege to work on my mindset and self growth. Its a challenge, still I am grateful that I am becoming awakening to my own flaws and seeing the light of God's greatness. The support of my love ones, my faith, and people who believed in me, I am able to write these poetic thoughts. I also had the opportunity to meet wonderful, great, inspiring leaders that motivate me to think 'powerful and loving thoughts, and encourage me to see the great success in me. I struggle day to day to embrace the great and compassionate love God has for me. Yet my powerful God has never given upon me. I thank the divine supreme using giants, ministers, and various people to help develop what has been broken. I consider myself has a reflection of God's masterpiece in the making. I am working on strengthening all areas of myself and my spiritual gifts. "I live in peace, I love peace, I walk in peace, I am Peace!" This is what I speak and affirm to myself, wish for myself and for others. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts! Think Wisely, walk good, be at peace & a mighty blessings to all of you!
