This Morning I Rise

This morning I rise
With you I rise
And I knew you
Love me
This morning I rise
With you
And I pray
I read
I say a few words
To you
I rise and listen
To your spiritual songs
And I knew you love
This morning I rise
This morning I rise
This morning I rise
And I thank you as I

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.


  • Glad to see you writing again. Keep it up. Learning the language will bring a smile and a raise of the brow!

  • ‘Black Mandarin’. Loving the name, it is so you, and loving the blog. Tianjin sounds like a welcoming place and I have a picture of what crossing roads may be like. Had to laugh :-). Maybe you could create a new dance and you could call it ‘Hop, skip, jump…. or dead’. Ms Mandarin, cannot wait to hear about your dining experiences, as I am sure you will share this with us soon. Also how is Tianjin pronounced, as it is spelt? Anyway just thought I would let you know that I enjoyed your first blog and that I will be waiting eagerly for the next instalment. God keep you safe and inspired.

  • Hail D.D., I enjoyed the blog and look forward to travelling with you as you experience China. You take care and stay positive.
