“You multi-millionaire in, great mansions,

French, Latin, even Caribbean’s

the richest smile, laughter: with graceful dance

“is it real romance—lovers moon,

Pledging, “I do’s!”

Telling tales; not one empty chair—

singing the blues.

“You multi-millionaire, in great mansions!”

“Do you remember –the conscious Rasta man?”

*In honor of reggae singer Robert Nesta Marley

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 God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
