The Ghetto

Living in the ghetto
is not an easy life
you have to really struggle and fight
to do whats right

Some dreams becomes lost
you don't wanna know at what cost
endless tears shed daily
because its not a simple life story

Young boys become men by night
fighting nonetheless with all their might
to become the sole breadwinner
losing sleep so they can feed their mother

Young girls become ladies in a minute
losing their virginity, well i guess all dats in it
trying vigorously to fit in with the popular crowd
sometimes its annoying, they get so vulgar and loud

Many mornings you have no food to eat
the only thing you can hear is your own heartbeat
you wonder and wonder when will it end
oh where is the father, i thought he was just around the bend

All the new cell phones
all the new gadgets
all the new headphones
all the new wallets
you really really need to have them
even if you have to give up your priced gem

Sometimes you even wonder why you were born
to go through these struggles, it leaves you so torn
but you get your strength from God above
although you sometimes wonder..where is his love

To grow up in the ghetto you must be strong
i tell you, its like singing the same old song
you have to rise up in the community
to make a better life for you and your family

Father's Day

It should be a day celebrated by true dads
definitely not those who always make the mums so mad
but rather stick throughout the bad weather
and when the sun shines they'll be glad they stayed together

A father shows an unending support and appreciation
notwithstanding his little contribution
but the love and comfort should never be lost
cause we all know the price this might cost

A father should always show strength in weakness
laughter in sorrow
encouragement in disappointment
victory in defeat and
be a shoulder to cry on inspite of the ongoing circumstance

A fathers heart should always be open
inviting endless long talks no matter whats popping
giving numerous advice whenever needed
to the one who holds him dear
and will always always care

I give thumbs up to all fathers
who have played their rightful role
to be bold
in the cold
and to hold
and be told
that love is not to be sold
neither is it expected to get too old

Fathers continue leading the way
and be good examples regardless of what people might say
play an active part in your childs life
no matter how many bees are in the hive

A father can be an uncle
a brother
a cousin
and even some mums are the best dads
but irrespective of who holds the lead
always remember he's the one you will always need

Happy Fathers Day

 I'm a sportsgyal if you didn't know
my support only grows and grows
i'm hooked on sports that's for sure
i'll love it till i die no need to say anymore

The guys love me
the girls hate me, wanna be like me
can't stand me
we can strike up a convo
and go on and on like there's no tomorrow

I love my Celtics
cause we're buzzer beaters
and i love my Man U
so no need to say boo

I love the energy that the games bring out
don't talk about the rivalry, its entertainment for sure
we never get tired of the constant bickering
especially from supporters like Delroy...whose team hardly wins

Soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball
football, boxing, athletics, netball
not forgetting lovely cricket and the West Indies
who always make my heart skip a beat
but nonetheless i'm always dancing

No matter what sport it is
i'm locked in and on the scene
i'm a sportsgyal that's what i am
i try so hard to remain calm
but the heat, excitement and passion
keeps me always in awe

Be it NBA,NFl, BPL or IPL
my tv is locked on you can tell
be it Sportsmax, Fox Sports, ESPN or ABC
No need to look any further that's where i'll be

I'm a sportsgyal if you didn't know
there's always so much roro
never a dull moment it keeps us all aglow
Just a reminder that my teams never disappoint me
i blame the coaches at times cause their selections sometimes surprises me

Last but not least my baby Ronnie
My just can't buy with money
your number 7 will always live on
and in my heart we shall never part

I'm a sportsgyal if you didn't know
by now i should be hosting my own sports show
Manchester United
West Indies
I could go on and on
but i got to go

Sports is life and life is full of sports

The Break Up

A break up can do alot of things
prepare you for better things to come
leave you feeling down
heal you from wounds of hurt
or help you to be more alert

You knew it would last forever
thought it would never wither,
crumble, but prosper
then all of a sudden out of nowhere
you felt like a stranger

You reminisced on the nights when he held you close
the sweet kisses, that you would always boast
not one night was your bed ever cold
you always had that warmth, he was yours to hold

How could a love so strong ever die
you thought you were really on a high
but little did you know
that something was going down pretty quickly though

When that dreadful day came
you never felt the same
you sat down in a corner
as if your whole world was over

He said he'd never leave
he said you'd be forever
he swore that you were the only one
but i guess the lies knew better

But how do i move on
how do i walk away
with all this hurt and pain
all these everlasting memories

So many unanswered questions
so many unfinished thoughts
my mind...filled with pieces to a puzzle
i'm tryin, i'm trying but i just can't remove the nozzle

The breakup reminded me of my childhood
when my best toy got lost or stolen
the only thing left to do really
is either get a new toy
or continue to cry and cry over the lost boy

Have you ever thought about the lie you just told?
the impact and hurt it may have caused
to the one you love and often hold

Lies are dangerous weapons
they can leave you feeling down
hurt and embarrassed
neglected and rejected
confused and alone

A lie can destroy your sanity
send you places where there's no ability
to return to the place you once were
where you thought love would grow and grow

But when he told that lie
all you could do was cry
and instantly it set your mind thinking
that life was not worth living

You planned revenge
to hurt him even more
but that just wasn't you
so you had to stay true

You stayed in bed all day
didn't have the strength to move, eat or drink
nothing any one said
could make any sense in your head

Why is it so hard to tell the truth
when we know that one lie brings another
you've told me so many already
that giving up...well there's just no other

A lie...easy to be said
so painful to recover from
yet still we make up stories in our head
despite the consequence

Think before you speak
cause a lie can seek
to put extreme pressure
on the love ones you treasure

The Will

I remember it was just yesterday
when we met on that rainy saturday
we glanced at each other
and from there life became better

You gave me the Will to hang on
to accept being wrong
to go the distance
and to trod the extra mile

You loved me unconditionally
and sacrificed no matter what
to make sure that I was happy
despite the bad weather

Your love has nurtured me
healed me
comforted me
guided me
and kept me safe through it all

I thank God for the Will
for the extra push
for the love he has showed me
especially when I wanted to give up

You rubbed my feet when I was tired
combed my hair when I was weak
held my hand ever so often
and kissed me so softly

you have been my strength
my rock
my lover
my guide
and my inspiration

I WILL forever love you
your warm smile
your big hugs
your tender touches
and your encouragement speeches

You gave me THE WILL to excel and I will be eternally grateful

A name so commonly used
But what really defines a mother?
Is it her kind ways
gentle touches
warm hugs
sweet kisses
or her soothing words

Is any woman a mother because she bores a child?

A mother caresses
and encourages her children

She clears your path from danger
guides you on the right track
even makes you fall
so that you can learn to rise on your own

A mother never leaves her children wanting
wishes them bad
hates, ridicules their looks and behaviors
or publicly embarrases them

She cries so easily at every accomplishments
that it compliments who she really is
an achiever
a believer
a go getter
and a reminder
that she'll always be around

A mother
cries when you cry
laughs when you laugh
stays with you when you're on a high
and hugs and comforts you when you're on a low

Mother, mama, mum, mummy, ma
called by many names
but it is really part of a lovely game
to hold your mother's heart so close to thee
and treasure her cause she holds the key

Mother...a name used for someone who loves you
an aunt
a cousin
a grandma
a sister
and even dads are sometimes the best mums

Mum...i love you and i love being one

When is Enough is enough

I've heard it been said so many times that i've had enough
enough of hardships
enough of friendships
enough of broken promises
enough of cheating relationships

Enough of being used and abused
lied to and tampled on
Enough of heartaches and heartbreaks
excuses after excuses

But still i ask when is enough enough?

Enough of waiting up all nite
for that special one
enough of cold dinners
and late showers
not even a phone call
or a gentle kiss
to make u feel like you're missed at all

But alas
when will that time come
when i can finally say
oh...what a storm
I've given my all
I've tried my best
But i guess my best was not just enough

No matter what comes my way
i can honestly say
that i've had my fair share
of enoughs
to carry me through the rest of the year

The Little House

From my little house on the hill

I can see the ever blazing blue sky
the tall coconut trees
the grafted mango trees
the lovely ocean

I feel the cool breeze that warms my soul
and fills the air especially in the evenings

I listen attentively to the crickets, the bees, the birds
and even the dogs barking ferociously at every  passerby

But what is it about my little house on the hill?

Is it the view,
the size,
the location
or am i just so comfortable no matter what, that nothing really matters

My little house on the hill brings me so much joy
that i often forget what lies outside
my neighbours
how hot it is
or even how brightly the moon shines

My flowers, my garden, my family
my love for the tv and romantic movies
even a nice sweet book or a quiet love song
keeps me constantly busy

Oh how i truly love without a doubt my little house on the hill

Tomorrow, tomorrow
we are never promised a tomorrow, or a new day or a bright sunshine
or even life

We are promised a life full of love, memories, happiness
and even a bright future

But life..
we must live it being positive and grow in strength day by day

But life..
seizes to exist if we stop growing and moving forward
no matter how many hurdles and challenges we face

We have one life to live
so let's live it to the fullest,
let's live it in the present,
let's live it with God,
so that our todays can be worth remembering
and our tomorrows are like stars in the sky
distant but yet so very very close

The Days

Those were the days
when we had nothing to eat and our clothes and shoes had holes

Those were the days
when we slaved in the river washing all day long

Those were the days
when we slept on the floor, curled up to each other

Those were the days

Those were the days
when we carried our books in our hands

Those were the days
when our roof would leake from any drop of rain

Those were the days
when we would cry until we had no tears left

Those were the days

But today
we have enough to eat and share with others

we have washing machines and laundry mats

we have beds that we can sleep in a different one every night

Today is the present

we have so many bags we don't know which one to use

we have more than one house to choose from

we cry tears of Joy

Today is the present and yesterday is no more


I can remember
when you and I
was living life on the spree

Doing what we wanted
going where we wanted
experiencing new things,
those were the days.

We talked about the future
we laughed with each other and at our mistakes
and vowed to do better
but later was greater

Too many obstacles
too many setbacks
Too many people came between us

We were young
we were inexperienced
we were easily targeted

The days grew short
and the nights even shorter
reminiscing on the good times we had
with each othe
