Haters - Love Them!

I've got madd love for the haters
That line is cliched, but true!
While you're dropping lines for me
I'm getting points while you do!

Funny, you could google me,
But who the hell knows you.
You say you're not supporting me,
Yet, you are still giving a review.

Flagging my work and getting it deleted,
That's ok boo it was completed
And annoyed no, you won't get that
Because I am not defeated.

I've got time to be on the .com
Because I've already got mine
Sorry if you work an 8 to 4
And just upset that you don't have time!

Poetry is about love not war
But within me there's a lion
So careful where yuh steppin' likkle bwoy
Because dis empress is of Zion!

*steppin' likkle bwoy (Caribbean slang for stepping little boy)

Michelle Borel Claim this poet

Proud to be from the beautiful twin isle of Trinidad and Tobago... One of my very first pieces was published when I was eight in one of Trinidad's daily newspapers. I believe that we must not bury our talents, but work on enhancing them. I started hosting shows at age eleven and by seventeen, I became a radio personality. Feel free to enjoy evenings with me from six to nine at www.1077musicforlife.com Together with that, I love the kitchen and my company Cookie Castle allows me to share the warmth and love I put into baking with others. Also, marketing seems to be another talent as I have held a regional position with an international brand regarding such a portfolio. However, I have saved the most important for the end of this bio - MY FAMILY :) I have three kids and I have been married now for nine years... Though on air I am known as Michelle Borel (maiden name), I take great pride in being Mrs. Thorpe! Peace and love to you and yours... Remember to put God first... Praise JAH and live!!! Would love to read my pieces live for you... You may contact me at 1(868)372-3877 or e-mail me at michelle_borel@hotmail.com more…
