What is Freedom

What is freedom if we don’t laugh
What is freedom if we find that
Where we are we don’t belong
What is freedom if we don’t dance
to the melody, to the songs, to
the drum
What is freedom if music cannot
Make our heart thump
What is freedom if we are not
Allowed to truly love
What is freedom if we find
That we can’t smile
What is freedom when we
Refuse to show affection
What is freedom when our
Eyes seem cold and distant
What is freedom without you
And I to love.

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.
