To my brother (Your journey seems so long)

I remember your smile, the way you dress,
Full of yourself, full of life
Your kind heart even when I could not hear
It thumping, I remember us celebrating
Our natal day with friends near & far
I remember your way of making delightful
Meals to fill hearts with love and then as
I write this poetic thought I remember
Your journey, my journey that made us
Part, made us vex, made us not wanting
To know each other again, that took
That left me not wanting to speak,
Wanting to laugh, not wanting to feel,
Reacquaint with this new world,
Not wanting to love again, as your journey
And my journey felt so unfair,
Felt so hard, until I heard your voice,
That made my heart smile, laugh
And I felt you, vision your beautiful
Face, smile as if you were right here
With me Again-I remember you my
Brave brother.

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.
