Poem: Survival

Written by empressjournee

Today

listen to the sound of hope

Today

Give thanks to the march of

freedom fighters for the black survival;

the human race.

Today

smile with the face of mercy:

Today

rise to the sound of grace,

Today

be gentle to the mirror of your face:

Today

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

Today

love to the sound of life: your heartbeat

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

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.
