Someone Died Today
I had to take paper & pen
The sorrow, it bothered me,
again & again.
What words would I use?
Honestly, what more could I say?
See, in my building complex?…
Someone died today.
I didn’t know him too well,
just hi’s and byes.
I didn’t like him too much, as he constantly gave
his wife swollen & distorted features, complimented
I had stopped telling him hello,
The sight of his wife, mother of his children,
simply made me sigh.
Women stay with these men,
fully laden with children.
Yet you can see, they’re dead inside.
His wife got a shoulder wound,
she came out the best.
He was felled, with 4 bullets to his chest.
Some may ask why?
Well, honestly, he wasn’t a nice guy.
But he was a life, I wonder who cried?
Was this his fate? Because karma is real.
No more beatings…I wonder how she feels?
Police, sirens, ambulance, screeching of wheels…
I took pen to paper,
for I simply had to say,
Right where I live? Someone died today.

❤💛💚Today’s Message, by Maxwanette A Poetess❤💛💚
In life, there is ALWAYS, something going on, good, bad, and or the ugly. We have always lived in & through times, that either will make you, break you, or all of the above. No one has a “perfect” life, no matter how wonderful they are. Because we exist in an imperfect world. It is imperative to our survival & betterment as human beings, to dismantle & destroy the distractive diversionary tactics, put in place to impede our elevation in life.
People will do you wrong, do others wrong, and even wrong themselves. Those people are all…US, at one time or another. The point is to learn, do better (not try anymore, be like Nike – “JUST DO IT!”), change, become better people, and help our Brothers & Sisters through life.
Some? Will also choose to remain in their own private Hells…You cannot save them, no matter how much you love them, unless they choose to. They, just like you & I, have to make their own choices in life. You do not stay stuck with them. Love them, but leave them to their choices, or you will drown with them. YOU MUST KEEP MOVING! Because your progression, strength, & love, will help so many others. And life is so gloriously unpredictable, that you may not be able to save your loved ones personally, but another just might, if we change for the better and spread it like wildfire!
WE CAN CHANGE THE UNIVERSE!!! One-by-One, if we start within Self, “Be, and Be The Change You Want To See In The World.”

I Wish I Were Already A Non-profit!!!
What I would do with these types of donations…
Oh the people I could help! Poetry, Arts, & Literature would be at the forefront. But above all, I would teach literacy. There’s a large population in the South, that are illiterate, children & adults.
I’d open a community center & a Poetry Hub to help my community & surrounding communities, sponsor artists in their endeavors, assist the youths on a larger scale, open up a poetry lounge in my town – geared towards the youths, provide temporary shelter for those who honestly are trying to get on their feet, assist the homeless population, provide empowerment classes & workshops for people of DV (Domestic Violence), setup a poetry center in Jamaica – that also offers social services to the community, start a publishing company & publish Poets & Authors, I can go on forever, lol!

A Little Bit About Maxwanette A Poetess
So After My Gallbladder Flush, The Menu Has Changed…
I no longer eat red-meat (I stopped months ago – we just don’t agree). I do love Fish & Salmon has been my favorite for years. I consume small amounts of chicken, which I intend to stop eating (mon di curry & jerk chicken MAD!!! 😅) altogether. I am a SALAD GODESS, lol!!! And veggies are my friend. Herbs have ALWAYS been a part of my life & consumption, and for most West Indians. It’s simply time to be healthier.
I was born with a bone disease that weakens the musculoskeletal system over time. NO ONE EVER KNEW…Just me & my doctors of course. I have been in physical pain, all of my life. Trust me, it’s not fun nor easy. I actually wasn’t supposed to ever have children, as pregnancies damages the bones further. The doctors wish to operate on my spine, knees, & feet. All of which guarantee not much change & can render me paralyzed. I can walk, but RARELY as a child or adult do I run. I could literally break my back & pop my knees, lol! So, if you ever see me running? RUN FI YUH LIFE, lol!!!🤣😅😆 – no for real though. I can’t walk into a hospital, then can’t walk out afterwards. No thank you. I may still end up in a wheelchair one day, but I will take my chances & keep going as Natural as possible and move to where I have access to a pool. Pool therapy does wonders for the joints, damn COVID-19 has halted pool therapy & Sauna activities for now.
I still have more cleansing to do:
Liver, Kidneys, & Blood. Oh I’m serious🧐
I wash my face with ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar). I tell you it’s great!!!🤩I also make my own hair products
& oils for my skin. I come from a family that has a lot of skin issues as well. When my children were babies, they broke-out all the time, dry skin, eczema, allergic reactions to chemicals, general scarring – they get it from me, as my skin & body are HYPERSENSITIVE to chemicals. I couldn’t find anything that worked on my children’s skin, or my own. So, I started making oils & mixtures myself – that’s another line of business, I am looking into, along with my famous homemade BBQ Sauces😉

🚨NOTE: I am not a doctor. I am only sharing, what I am doing for myself personally.🚨
As a child, Mommy always made sure we not only ate well, but cleaned out our system. We faithfully were given castor oil, cod liver oil, and Senna laxatives, to keep our system clean and fit. My sister & I rarely got sick or colds.
So, this is long & well overdue…
3 days prior, No Meat. Some fish, like Salmon is allowed if necessary, fruits, vegetables, & water
I thought I wouldn’t make it. It’s amazing how addictive food & toxins can be. I also cut my sugar (did you know sugar is more addictive & harmful than cocaine?).
1 & 1/2 Cup of Grapefruit Juice – Freshly Squeezed
1/2 Cup of Lemon Juice
4 Teaspoons of Epson Salt
1/4 Coconut Oil
1/4 Olive Oil
Take before bedtime; 1/2 of the Juice Mix & Oil. Wait 15 minutes & take the rest. Then lay on your right-side. It will be a BUSY night & morning😉
Now the Juice, I can manage. But how do I keep the oil down??? My system is hypersensitive. I will keep honey or agave on standby
Health & Internal Care List
1) Gallbladder Flush – Starts tomorrow night
2) Colon Cleanse
3) Liver Cleanse
4) Kidney Cleanse
I won’t lie. I wanted to eat other things but, stuck to it. My health, my wealth. Tonight is the showdown!!!
Yard Niceville Kwanzaa – The Online Edition Dec. 30th, 2020 @6:11 PM (7:11 PM USA Time) Virtual Event
I recall as a little child, watching my Mom, writing and reciting poems. She was also an activist. When my Mom stood and vocalized her works, I was rooted to the spot with utter amazement, awe, and respect. Her voice, stance, look, her very presence, demanded ones full attention. Very much like my grandmother – irony; my Mom told me before she died, that I reminded her of her Mother. Imagine that!
But Mommy was no joke & in many ways, I am a lot like her. My Mom, taught me to always seek answers, always keep going, and no matter what, never give up, and that the mind has no limits. Before she transcended, I taught her that true love is real, change is possible, forgiveness is able, and accepting love is our right by divine creation.
I AM proud to have followed in her poetic footsteps, and published my own books of poetry (thanks again Antonia Valaire for giving me that push to do so). Mommy was the first publicist & poet in our family. I AM the second.
I AM taking my time, handling my business, and preparing, to fully immerse myself in my rightful place within existence. Unnuh watch di movements😉😄😊
