Poem: The Heart Speak

Where are you my love?

Not the love that corrode

And breaks hearts,

The one that sees my presence,

Worthy—magnificent, because you hold my heart:

Where are you my love?

You who anchor, calms the raging storm:

Where are you great King?

That brings peace, order and joy within:

Did you not promise?

That love would continually be drench within;

—close, not far?

When I am up and when I am low,

I command greatness, great vision, true love,

That honors, seeks, the fullness, goodness, of my heart:

—let me sing your songs that sweeten hearts, as your great reward;

Let favor be your grace and goodness that empowers me,

As you change everything that is not right,

That troubles me—that troubles my heart!

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!
