This Morning

This morning I rise
to see you and I made
your meal
This morning I rise
to see you and wash
my body, your body
as I was taught to do.
This morning I rise
to see you and I do
my duty like you ask
me to do and I wonder
is this all I was born
to do
This morning I rise
to see you and I ate
with you as your eyes
meet mine and I say
I love you
This morning I rise
to see you and I talk
with you, smile with you
This morning I rise
to see you and you
made me cry and I got
angry as you chuckle
within
This morning I rise
to see you and I ask
myself never let me
forget this moment
that seems like nothing
This morning I rise
to see you and I am
blessed to be with
you.

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.
