Running Free

I once dreamt I was running
With speed to catch a breath
Of air from a place that was
Not clear, fresh, like the plot
I see when I visit your
Enchanted plush botanical
I once dreamt I was running
With speed, free, inhaling
The breeze of the aroma of
Rose and sweet hibiscus
I once dreamt I was running
With you to a quiet place inside
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 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.
