Poem: Survival

Written by empressjournee

listen to the sound of hope


Give thanks to the march of

freedom fighters for the black survival;

the human race.


smile with the face of mercy:


rise to the sound of grace,


be gentle to the mirror of your face:


forgive the ‘no’s and ‘yes’ that was misplace.


love to the sound of life: your heartbeat

going dub be dub, dub be dub with a smile!

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!
