There is a fundamental difference
between the peacock and the butterfly
Both are beautiful
Both are deserving
But when it comes down to it
One struts proudly
while the other...
quietly flutters away

When they judge most, care the least.
Their thoughts aren't yours to carry.
Drop their comments and strut over them like a red carpet.
I hope this gets to someone who needs to see it

Every Jamaican is a superstar.
It's there in the carry
in the step
in the stand.
It's there in the belief
that anything
that anyone
that anywhere
can swagger
can strut
can take the room
and make the world stop
sit up
take note
and smile.

She strutted on the street
with heels the colour of blood
that came from broken hearts
