“Namaste & One Love”โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š

What does this even mean???…

“Well, Namaste means: the love within me recognizes and reflects the love you have within you. One Love: Love for The Most High, Self, Others, & Life Overall (my own overstanding/translation). It’s a combination of Hindu & Jamaican and it works for me, lol! I use this phrase more often than not. I feel that the world couldn’t hurt from a reminder of what that is. As well as I need a reminder myself from time to time.” ~Maxwanette A Poetess



So, Maxwanette, what is the real purpose of your page, social media outlets, etc., What makes you any different from the rest of them?

I simply want to reach out to others. To let people know that there’s more to life than only living, loving, and going about our daily lives, as if others cease to exist. To remind myself & others, that we don’t have to suffer in life if we all try to remember what love really is and work together. If we try walking in each others’ shoes, maybe, just maybe, we might have more overstanding & compassion.

“We’re All In This Called Life, TOGETHER…Remember?”

“Poetry, Language Of the Soul”, Volume I. ~By, Maxwanette A Poetess

Written by this extraordinary, poetic wordsmith;

Maxwanetteโ€™s Poetry may cause a reaction and or response. Either or, the fact that it causes one to think and or feel? Is more than enough, says the Poetess. Many of her pieces are reflective of her own “personal” experiences and that of others. The Poetess stated, “It is those experiences within this Universe, that are expressed in my poetry.” The Artist uses some of her own pictures (of self and her surroundings) because it gives a more personal view of her words.

If her Poetry strikes a chord? Then she kindly suggests that you,

“Speak to your Soul…And Listen.”

“Bob Marley was my Secret Mentor. Being of Jamaican descent, I was exposed to his music. I’d sneak to listen to his musically laced messages – as Rastas (Rastafarians) were seen as thieves, murderers, and lazy criminals when I was growing up. Funny how that never rang true in my ears or thinking. Since I loved music, especially Reggae, I listened to him CONSTANTLY & CONSISTENTLY. His lyrics, di riddim, and di vibes…Dem Level. It brought a level of Truth & Consciousness to my young developing mind.” ~Maxwanette A Poetess

    1. Hi Megha! Youโ€™re very welcome. Seeing how my Mother was a Published Poet, it wasnโ€™t that difficult. Also being able to read at a high level at an early age helped. Not to leave out, how adamant my Mother was about reading & writing. In school this became a great advantage for me. I thank you for your praise, but I owe it all to Mom.
