Why does my heart, feels so much void within?

Forgiveness set me free!

I pray and kneel—so earnestly;

As I read those daily devotion religiously,

Sent in the mail—oh so mysteriously!

I whisper, forgiveness set me free!

Some sees me as a burden, broken,

A number—statistic, confuse, hopelessly:

Self-reflection, the ending of 2020;

of my painful past that had affected me,

Still I write—grateful,  I can see:

Why does it hurt so much?

To love, to grow, spiritually—in your absence:

Forgiveness set me free!

“Love please, don’t forsake 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!
