Thoughts on my Wedding Day
My special day is here at last!
Today I will be wed.
Heart's a flutter; knees so weak,
Excitement fills my head.
She mops my face and fluffs my dress
She guides me to my quest.
She compliments and reassures
My Chief is just the best
I stand awhile and take it in.
Oh, come on nerves, not now.
Deep breath, exhale, again, now smile.
I'm off to take my vow.
My heart is warmed by smiles and nods
Of family and friends.
On Dad's arm I feel so secure
As strong support he lends
I hear a sniff; has to be Mom,
Wiping her happy tears.
She smiles with kind approval
While holding back her fears
The halfway mark, I see him now,
As handsome as can be.
My love, my friend, my confidant;
I'm thrilled that he chose me.
The nuptials o'er; the photographs,
The vows, the ring, the kiss.
From this day forth we shall enjoy
Our Matrimonial bliss
To My Baby Girl on Her Wedding Day
It seems like yesterday, you came into this world
At the sound of your first cry my heart melted
My eyes filled with love and tears as I took you into my arms, my perfect baby girl.
It was in that moment when your perfect brown eyes looked into mine
That I will protect you from all the monsters in this world
I will catch you when you fall and I will help you navigate the mysteries of this world
It was in that perfect moment, I vowed to be the best Daddy, that I can be.
As I watch you grew into the independent, self reliant teenager
My heart swelled with pride and praise filled my mouth
As I remembered when you took your first ride on your bike without your training wheels
Joy took root as well as I celebrated each victory with you
I look at you my daughter, as the change that I dreamed of
As you took each challenge life threw at you
And you made each of them your stepping stone
You proved to the world that you were a force to be reckoned with
That you will stand up to do what is right
That you will make your mark on this world
As you believe you can be the difference in one person's life.
As I stand in the middle of the room
Watching you put the final touches of your make-up on
As your mom fluff your veil
My eyes are misty with fond memories, as I slid through the photo album of our lives together
As you took your first walk, teetering and tottering towards me
As I walked with you to school on your first day
As you won your first ribbon at the Science Fair
Today I will give you away to the man who holds your heart in his hands
As you pledge your life to him, becoming his wife.
I am both proud and sad at the same time.
But one thing I know for sure
You will always and forever be, my baby girl.
Hey, mek mi tell unnu something
Poetry classic another level it a swing
Money, free some a mankind ago lose them soul over trivialities
Why? Because dem use psychology
To push them negative energy
Dem too egotistical and all them cause a persecution
If you nuh too careful, yuh nuh live fi see or do good
Them energy surround us, but in God I put my trust
Music is a tool and dub poetry is introducing a new star
So look out because the best is coming
Big and strong, and created to win
Lessoning in the music, feel the wind
If you know what I know keep listening
Energy blowing negative and positive
Depending on your choice determine the direction you are going
Listen keenly, 'cause God is listening too
Now is not the time to think solo
Free your hearts, minds and unite
Because soon we will have to stand up and fight
Jamaica Is Land Of Paradise
Rich, beautiful, international love and recognise
I know you all; it's time to know me
Come live unite love and be free
Jamaica, I have been scared before
Now I am scared no more
We were all born rich, but them system make us poor
Hey, I have got the scars to show you that I know what I know
The system will fail you it has robbed and scared me too
But my feet was designed to lead the multitudes
Jamaica they have robbed us before, now they're doing it again
Come wise up Jamaicans, unite and create their end
Hey, think about the future, freedom happiness
This time for the children we'll have to do our best
Now my people don't let them limit your potential
You'll have to stand strong and show your credential
My words must be if the uprightness of my heart
So my Lord, please let me not fall apart
My lips will utter knowledge clearly
So that my people and I will shine brightly

I Drift into Slumber
I drift into slumber with her in my thoughts
My dreams from her very essence derived
Captivating garb silkened into porcelain skin
Reminiscent upon the curves depicted by anatomy refined
Luxuriance emitted from her coiffure
With a flare in her eyes which by spasms dim
Tantric chants are uttered from emollient lips
A smile so pure slashing all figments of grim
With the patterns in my palms embracing her in entirety
Anticipated is the evocation of bliss
Appeal adorned by omnipotence divine
As upon the clouds our spirits shall climb
