Reflection of a heart

Detach from your sacred womb,

you embraced the soul frame—body,

With eyes, gentle, soft, your love calm fear.

“I am” all that you saw, you ever need.

You knew ‘I am ‘ that we were bless by His majesty.

You placed the small frame on your bosom

In the moment of void—his presence, you felt,

was connected to the great heaven

an overwhelming  warmth,

life felt pleasing—pleasant with God proclivity,

As your baby cries: tears of joy seeps,

your arms open wide

You pray; thank the Lord,

 that the baby was by your side,

tiny, innocent and fragile—a gentle child

you remove from your bosom

the prize, the gift, so beautiful—tenderly!!

Life begins to do the work; the child turns

To be the journey, recreate, share the blessing,

the hope—that Christ, Holy Jesus, died,

Risen from the grave, forgives us, loves mercifully!’

About the author


I am a proud mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, a singer, great cook, a lover of unique fashionable earrings, and love to wear & dress in a unique artistic fashion.
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 working for the Human Resource Admin, taught at an Head-Start 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. My career ended because of an overwhelming challenge of self-worth and depression I was facing that took a long time to over come. However, the support of love ones and guidance of God, I was able to rise again and excel. I was able to connect more with my children and grand children to fulfill my destiny. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz, before she passed on, and other great leaders. I know all could not occur without the support of love ones and most of all God. I am growing everyday as I hope that I will be successful on developing a higher Christ consciousness of my mind. The work is hard however through the love of Christ he is developing my character. I won't give up on myself. I consider myself a wildflower that love to bring joy to others. I am also working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts. Peace and Blessings!
