Truth Reveal

There were cameras everywhere,

i could not see; so i love u oh so freely:

I gave myself to you,

there were no ‘I do’s” nor yes maybe:

i found out lust was my mere enemy,

and that the system had fail you and me;

it had shame, it had deceived you & me:

‘Arise! Arise! I call out to Jah Selassie!!

I got caught being unwise—

Now I must treat life kindly:

cameras tell no lie: it says that to me,

wish someone had school me,

“cried all nights, a fool i was;”

Thank you Jah, u had delivered me!”

“Jah truth: I command more in me!”

“Forgive—I whisper:

Jah do not forsake me.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
