Place of Birth: Scarborough,Tobago
Nationality : Trinidad + Tobago
Date of Birth: 01.05.1976
I don’t see the glamour in suffering.
I do however see the beauty in sacrifice.
I was an unexpected child. I am now an unwanted adult. I have, due to observation of humanity come to be an ominous memory in the corner of the minds of all. Eyes wonder into thoughts seeking a face to place on that bad feeling. Prayers ascend, asking G_d to remove me but I am…still. I know you do not understand. You mirror me who you hate. You’ve become an illustration of what my presence has done to you though you resent the sight of me.
I am not the maker of your murderous deeds, your abortion and genocide, your ethnic cleansing and crucifixion. All of these laid slain when I got here. I am, however, the daughter of a man who is the child of the G_d of a religion that I consider calm and soothing though we have been known for war. I know you wish death upon me, in particular.
I enjoy my Fathers voice you find Him dreadful a thunderous. He is all there is that ever was and ever will be. You make haste towards me instead. I am a mistake. You think you will find pleasure inside of me, mercy and a revival of faith. It is I that cause you the greatest regret.
I always hear Him. Always. I know the plots to replace Him, to recreate Him, to tear me away from Him and render me foolish. I do not always listen to Him though. This you will consider as you plead with Him for more time. I do not want your apology now. I want you to mean what you have said of me and stand there. Right there.
I received warnings not to consult the zodiac for knowledge about self. G_d knows I don’t always listen. I am a Capricorn and out of all the attributes Capricorns hold their position on the Greco Roman calendar has the most impact on my daily life. They can come first and last.
Being raised in the Nations Capital, a city positioned as both an evil empire and superpower, being a Capricorn made my American experience a little less traumatizing. The trauma of loving a drug dealing as an individual and then hating the drug trade. The insanity of loving hip hop culture but hating the desensitization and devaluing of the cultures inhabitants. Being at the median prime to love G_d and manifest it to mankind and the heresy that comes with that process is now me on a regular day in the city I have grown to love.
I warn you about this swamp land I call home. It can drain you and you will never be replenished. Count yourself among the blessed if you even notice that your being tapped out. Maybe you can see where I am going with this…
I can be but so honest before my shrink ups my medication but the good Book states the truth shall set us free. So take the rest of this information with a grain of Kosher salt and know that I do not own a television.
I hear things. Djinn Solomon would say. Psychosis if you believed the earth was flat. I see visions and/or illusions. Which ever makes you comfortable is fine with me. I have spoken to many about these things, many questions were asked of me. Some of these experiences confounded me, due to my inability to separate G_d and science. Others have heeled many a wound in my soul. Some questions caused me to ask myself more questions while others brought old memories to the surface and resulted in instant answers.

“Do you consciously utilize or exchange energy during sex?”
I read Queen Afuas’ Sacred Woman in part. I go to therapy. Now. But when I lost my virginity to my Puerto Rican neighbor at twelve I didn’t know anything about how sharing your body during sex is a method of not only transferring body fluids but spirituality, energy and thought. I’ve learned that I did bot like nor love some of the lovers I “fucked” and I understand why. All this in a time when slutty is sexy and self love is selfishness.

Ask at one of my sessions
“Do you consider cutting a strength?”
That session made me question pleasure and pain and she was the reason I would remember not to brake myself open to see if I was really inside my body with the thoughts I hear….A work in progress!
Africans profess a wide variety of religious beliefs and statistics on religious affiliation are difficult to come by since they are too sensitive a topic for governments with mixed populations. According to the World Book Encyclopedia, Islam is the largest religion in Africa, followed by Christianity. However, according to Encyclopædia Britannica, 45% of the population are Christians, 40% are Muslims and less than 15% continue to follow traditional African religions.

The soucouyant that lives by day as an old woman at the end of the village. By night, however, she strips off her wrinkled skin, puts it in a mortar, and flies in the shape of a fireball through the darkness, looking for a victim. Still in the shape of a fireball, the soucouyant enters the home of her victim through the keyhole or any crack or crevice. Soucouyants suck the blood of people from their arms, legs and other soft parts while they sleep. If the soucouyant draws out too much blood from her victim, it is believed that the victim will die and become a soucouyant herself, or else perish entirely, leaving her killer to assume her skin. The soucouyant practices witchcraft, voodoo, and black magic. Soucouyants trade the blood of their victims for evil powers with Bazil the demon who resides in the silk cotton tree. To expose a soucouyant, one should heap rice around the house or at the village cross roads as the creature will be obligated to gather every grain, grain by grain (an almost impossible task to do before dawn) thus being caught in the act. In order to destroy the soucouyant, coarse salt must be placed in the mortar containing the soucouyant’s skin. She then cannot put the skin back on and will perish. Belief in soucoyants is still preserved to some extent in Trinidad. The skin of the soucouyant is said to be very valuable, as it is used when practicing black magic.
