When Love feels, so unreal and seem to, betray you and me,

“I have to believe in me!” When love feels hurtful, shameful,

Deceiving, and tears flow, in the early morning, fresh,

Autumn, winter evening — breeze; “I still, will, believe in me!”

When love feels unwanted, scary, incomplete and all around,

Your presence, seems like danger, far away, absence,

From a sacred heart, separate; like, its’ wishes are to,

Keep us apart; “I will believe in me!” When love feels like,

A surprise melody of a tender heart, of a songstress,

A Christmas present, one struggle — to unwrap gracefully:

And it seems, I have nothing left — but breath,

True source, has appoint, anoint, blesses us with;

Each day I ask, help me, never to forget, as I command,

Greatness, power, health, love, compassion & no toxic regrets;

“Let your beautiful presence, stay always sincerely!”

“Speak life, whisper great thoughts,

Let your light shine — daily!” ‘Hope, grace,

Continue to remind me, that your love, is the greatest,

Love story that has safely kept me!

About the author


I am a mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, and a singer that love life. I was born in Jamaica West Indies from great parents, that believes in me, push me forward to achieve a degree. I was emigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. Although I did not reach the level I had aspired for myself to reach and meet great actresses and singers that make the United States of America a grander, refined and famous place to live, work and visit, due to health issues, the path I took; I am given the privilege to work on my mindset and self growth. Its a challenge, still I am grateful that I am becoming awakening to my own flaws and seeing the light of God's greatness. The support of my love ones, my faith, and people who believed in me, I am able to write these poetic thoughts. I also had the opportunity to meet wonderful, great, inspiring leaders that motivate me to think 'powerful and loving thoughts, and encourage me to see the great success in me. I struggle day to day to embrace the great and compassionate love God has for me. Yet my powerful God has never given upon me. I thank the divine supreme using giants, ministers, and various people to help develop what has been broken. I consider myself has a reflection of God's masterpiece in the making. I am working on strengthening all areas of myself and my spiritual gifts. "I live in peace, I love peace, I walk in peace, I am Peace!" This is what I speak and affirm to myself, wish for myself and for others. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts! Think Wisely, walk good, be at peace & a mighty blessings to all of you!
