Struggle

I’ll stick on you like crazy glue.

Who?”  “Me or You?” I thought, I wish to say;

The greeting card I read, treasure, your photo in display,

on the wall, in my heart, an empty house

an empty space: your presence I’d seek

up and above—can’t find you in this ‘kinda race.

I laugh out loud to the face in disguise

broke my heart—left me, weeping, feeling unwise

Love—turn its back to the struggles of my yesterday.

Was it a test? I loose— you win!

“How do you feel, Jamaica, Trinidad, Africa, Dominica

Haiti, India, Barbados, Europe, the USA

How do you feel ‘Me” on this mystical day?”

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.
