Were You ever a Friend (to DI-Film)

You invited me to laugh
And drink sweet wine
And I decline
You invited me to stay
On your cot and I decline
As I leave your warm
And welcoming home
In the night alone NYC
I wish I told you my
Troubles, my fears
As my heart ache
You never call me back
Even when I write you
Even when I thank you
You never call me back
And I miss our friendship
As you soar with greatness
You never call me back
And I wonder were you ever
A friend.

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.
