"I had reasoned this out in my mind; there was on of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other; for no man should take me alive."


Harriet Tubman

Abolitionist/ Moses of her people


Anointed for good

Bathed in splendor

Glorious in nature

Born for greatness

Exulted in Ubuntu

"The green shoot planted by God

Planted with his own hands

To display his Glory" isaiah


Prince William and Prince Harry you come with  Healing powers

Its in your heart

Poured out in service for humanity

And all living things


"Teruko Sekiguchi, a 42-year-old housewife and Ishinomaki resident, waited for the prince's arrival on top of the hill in the cold rain for more than an hour. She said she was touched that he would come all the way out to the disaster region.


'He is gorgeous. You can feel his kindness,' she said."


This history of hospitality that you exhibit time after time was

Inherited from our forefathers

Emhlanga rocks


It is written;


"Originally home to San hunter-gatherers, the area south of the Tugela River (incorporating present-day Umhlanga) was later occupied by Nguni-speaking people who were unified under King Shaka in the early 1800s into the proud Zulu nation. The area came under British control soon after, becoming part of the large estate belonging to the great sugar magnate, Sir Marshall Campbell, who sailed to South Africa from Glasgow in 1850. Indian indentured labourers were brought in to work on the sugar estates in 1860, bringing with them a vibrant and colourful culture, giving the area its unique multicultural flavour.


In 1869, Umhlanga's first beach cottage was built on a rocky site overlooking the sea and in the true spirit of Umhlanga hospitality tea and scones were served to passers-by. The reflective roof of the cottage was also used as a beacon by passing ships' captains to navigate safely around Umhlanga's rocky headland. However, the cottage was converted into the Oyster Box hotel in the 1930s and in 1953 Umhlanga's distinctive red and white lighthouse was built to warn mariners away from the dangers of the rocks. The first hotel in Umhlanga was built in the 1920s by Virginia, daughter of Sir Marshall Campbell. Other hotels soon followed these two and the village of 'Umhlanga Rocks' became the most sought-after area for locals to visit during their holidays. The rest, as they say, is history.


The name 'Umhlanga' means 'place of reeds' in the Zulu language."


You feel African to me

Its that great spirit of Ubuntu

I hear Michael Jackson sing

"Don't matter if you black or white"

Ha ha ha

Kicking legs in the air as I scribe away

Giggling, feeling happy, silly and childlike

Ha ha ha

Yes MJ

"Don't matter if you black or white"

Ha ha ha!!!


Can't stop laughing

Mhhhh I must stop

This is work *winky*

Ohhh let me just dance


"Don't matter if you black or white"

Giggling still

If I dance

The silly giggles

This rapture will stop

I'm sparkling with pure delight

As bright as the noon day sun

As picturesque

As Bob Marley's

Pimper's Paradise

Feeling as wholesome

As a cascading waterfall

The Will of the Sovereign and

Majestic God

Is untouchable


Sithi nangamso


Sintyilozile okwemilonji

Nisijabulisile magorha kaBawo



Big Salute!!

The Will of God

Is omnipotent

Is eternal

Is nice and easy

So filled with love

So delightful

This is the yoke that the Lord

Preached about

His yoke is easy

The sovereign Yoke since

Time immemorial

Glory be to God in the highest

Peace on earth

Perfect stillness

And sovereign Presence

From the throne of love

The Will of God

Is untouchable!


The truth of the matter

Is that the Princes

Don't have to say a word

All is accomplished through your PRESENCE

Because your energy is pure love

And love

Love accomplishes all things

With Great ease

Who can ever forget Prince Harry's Solo Tour

During the Queen's Diamond Jubilee


Uhhhh it was so lovely

So so lovely


Who can forget Prince William and Princess Kate wearing traditional clothes in New Zealand

Dancing away,

Like they've been doing it

Since the day they were born!



What could be better than diversity?

This is how world peace is restored

Glory Be To God forever more

Your life is a testament of

God's Will, Might and Power


"You'll have the title

'Priests of God,'

Honored as ministers of our God

You'll feast on the bounty of nations

You'll bask in their glory.

Because you got a double dose of trouble

And more than your share of contempt,

Your inheritance in the land will be doubled

And your joy go on forever.


Because I, God, love fair dealing

And hate thievery and crime

I'll pay your wages on time and in full

And establish my eternal convenant with you

Your descendants will become well-known all over.

Your children in foreign countries

Will be recognized at once

As the people I have blessed."



The Dalai Lama explains further;


"The interesting thing about greed is that although the underlying motive is to seek satisfaction, even after obtaining what you want, you’re still not satisfied. It’s this endless, nagging desire for more that leads to trouble. On the other hand, if you’re truly contented, it doesn't matter whether you get what you want or not. Either way, you remain content."


Walter Bagehot says;

'The best reason why Monarchy is a strong government is that it is an intelligible government. The mass of mankind understand it, and they hardly anywhere in the world understand any other..."

The English Constitution


Then we hear THE VOICE


"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." Micah


To someone so young

So tender

So beautiful

So courageous

You've revolutionized our senses


To someone so spiritual

So humane

So selfless

So loving

I find wholesomeness in your blessings


To someone so pure

So raw

So passionate

So sophisticated

My soul weeps

In recognition

Of the mirror staring back at me


To someone so dedicated

A maverick statesman

For all time to come

No end to his royal rule


I sing

"All is well with my soul"


"You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one"



Through your being

I see angels dance

Under the perfect light of God

We live the same dream

God's dream

The dream that cause me to eclipse

Again and again and again

In my God path

Many traveled this path


Maya Angelou


Its  the Otherworldly dreamer's dream

Delivered swiftly and smoothly

Through God's perfect alignment

Ordained way before inception

For God is love, passion, dance, song, laughter and much more

The soul thrives in this passion

Perfect guidance for;

The Lord guides the steps of a good man

And he delights in everything he does


God created human beings

To rule over everything He created

But what has become of that?

"Turn your eyes upon Jesus, And the things of Earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of his glory and grace.'


Then loving servants appear

Consecrated before birth

Marked with God's emblem

Of Loving kindness


God's servants

Dedicated to truth and service

Appear like

Light and shining amour

Not intimidated in anyway

For it is written;


"Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed.

If people all over the would do this, it would change the earth." W. Faulkner

We also learn from the book of Timothy that;


"If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;


He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,


Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.


But godliness with contentment is great gain.


For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.


And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.


But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.


For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.


But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.


Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.


I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;


That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ"


An act of kindness can change the trajectory of life for many who are

In dire need.


In an interview Prince William said;


"The wildlife is incredibly vulnerable and I feel a real protective instinct, more so now that I am a father, which is why I get emotional about it,"


William says. "You want to stand up for what is very vulnerable and needs protecting. Elephants, rhinos and many other animals that are persecuted don't have a voice."


He continued;


'The threats to our natural heritage are extensive, but I believe that this collaboration of the best minds in conservation will provide the impetus for a renewed commitment and action to protect endangered species and habitats for future generations,' he said.


'At the root of the illegal wildlife trade, for example, is the demand for products that require the deaths of tens of thousands of these animals every year, pushing them further towards extinction.'


'We must work together to prevent this catastrophe and allow our children the opportunity to experience wildlife in its many beautiful and varied forms,' added William.


A loving father

A loving husband

A loving brother

A loving son

A loving grandson

One who was born King

One who was born

A Father for all tribes and nations worldwide

One who's heart shines and blossoms with goodness

A true treasure who rejoices in the prosperity of all God's children

Whoever they are

Wherever they may be

Nurturer from birth

He wanted to be a policeman


Endowed with wisdom

To correct the wrongs of the past

Ensuring a better future for all

My hero for all time to come


"God's Spirit spoke through me,

His words took shape on my tongue

The God of Israel spoke to me,

Israel's rock mountain said,


'Whoever governs fairly and well,

Who rules in the Fear-of-God,

Is like the first light at daybreak

Without a cloud in the sky,

Like green grass carpeting earth,

Glistening under fresh rain.'


(Like King David

Prince William you will say)


And this is just how my regime

has been,

For God guaranteed his covenant with me,

Spelled it out plainly

And kept every promised word

My entire salvation

My every desire."


We've been blessed to see your evolution

We have become

We found guidance

We found strength, joy

We found new hope

We found new possibilities

Our champion indeed


"Champions excel because

They transform their minds

Body and soul


They achieve what others cannot conceive


Because they persevere in the valley

Of preparation

And are prepared to risk

Tackling mountains

They previously thought impossible."


My grandmother is one of these amazing champions that the writer writes about so eloquently.


She gave me pure bliss

Being cradled by her

Was like being cradled by God

She was strong

Yet so loving

She was disciplinarian

Yet as soft as a dove

She physically fought a tyrant who sought to reduce her

She packed her family belongings

And her father's livestock

They moved

They didn't run

They walked away

A praying woman

Who's trust rested solely in God

Till the day she died

I inherited gold earrings from her

They were her grandma's

She was a true liberator

If she was famous

She would have be hailed as the MOTHER of FREEDOM like Rosa Louise Parks


These grandmothers revered all beings

They saw God in every being

They were on a much higher plane

That is often missing in preachers

Missing in those who claim to be human rights activists

My granny didn't play favorites

She must have know that

If you play favorites your family unit


She taught me everything I know

I am who I am today because of her love, tenderness and teachings

Not through words

Through her actions

I watched her every move

She was highly energetic

Two of her late children inherited her energy and brains

My late aunt Elizabeth whom I called Mama and late uncle Elijah

A very handsome football star and a teacher/ model/ social worker

She always liked it when I modeled for her, or danced

Or just tried on my garments

Granny was as still as the ocean depth

She and my grandpa had no bitterness whatsoever

They uplifted humanity

They celebrated all human beings

They wanted to see successful human beings

Because they were successful too

My granny once said that even your own flesh and blood can be jelous of you

Its very true

Blessed are those families who have risen above such issues

She could pray for things

And her prayers are always answered

Even to this day

I see her prayers answered through me constantly

This is the reason I pay no mind

To small minded beings


"Truth is powerful and it prevails."

Sojourner Truth


My grandparents never complained about anything

When I think about the day we were forced out of our home

During Forced Removal

I'm shattered

Seeing them in my mind

Leaving everything they owned behind

Land, friends, wealth, comfort, livestock,

Which my grandfather loved with all his heart, soul and spirit

His horses, cows, sheeps,

My granny's chickens,

Their garden, gorgeous flowers, fruit and veg

Its heart wrenching

Their love for each other

Soothes me

Their partnership

And friendship really puts a smile

On my face

I loved teasing them mercilessly

Especially my grandfather

We would giggle endlessly

Sometings I'd be in so much trouble

For being silly

I'd bribe him with a cup of tea

Ha ha ha

Everyone always flocked around us

Wanting to know what we were talking about

And how come we were giggling

Like that

So much fun

My grandpa found a counselor in me

He would tell me things that he wouldn't tell his children

It was sacred and awesome

What a gift of love

What a blessing

I marvel at their tenderness and

Peace of mind

They addressed me with so much

Respect, love and tenderness


This is the reason we know for sure that the animal kingdom will be restored. It has overseers like you Prince William. Loving Rulers over all things that God created.



David's song


'How great is ADONAI,

Who delights in the peace of his servant!'

Then my tongue will tell of your righteousness

And praise you all day long."


May God bless you and your family sweetly and deeply.

May you reach endlessnes! Creativity and boundless energy be yours forever more.
