The sea

Yesterday we were friends
And we laugh, dance
We share stories
Only you and I know
On the cool sandy
Bluesish sea
Then I found out
You did not love
Yourself nor love me
And the sea we once
Walk and share beautiful
Dreams, love stories—began
To feel unmagical—lonely
And I lost myself, and the
Sea forgot me, did not recognize
Who I am,as I call out to the ocean,
The love hidden in me, the sea
still seems distant far away from me.

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.
