I don't sing! I spit lyrics (in your face) LIBERATE YOUR MINDS WITH THE SPOKEN WORD
As a Poet and Spoken Word Artist, I often tend to and feel the need to express freely, whether it be about myself or not. I am compelled to write and recite without much inhibition. I don’t hold much back in my work. As you indulge, free your minds of judgment. With modern technology I am able to upload videos from my You Tube Site and utilize them in my own website.

His Eyes Always Stray
If he cant ever keep
his eves in his socket,
hows he ever going to keep
his dick in his pocket?
A man whose eyes Always stray; Follows skirts,
Looks at legs,
Stares at breasts,
Will never pass the test.
The test of time and faithfulness.
His intentions will never be sincere.
He will always cause you tears.
The fights will never end.
The trust will cease to begin.
If your man doesn't keep
his eyes in his socket,
He will never keep
his dick in his pocket!
If you cant ever trust him,
Your entire relationship,
Then whats the point in loving him
He will never give you
what you deserve.
Why be with someone
that makes you feel this way
Why settle for a man
whose eyes always stray
You need to take a stand.
You need to get rid of this man.

NEWS CHANNEL 7 ARCHIVES
The experts say poetry was made to be read more than spoken but today a new disc was released which hopes to challenge that notion. To coincide with poetry month, the Image Factory Art Foundation has released a compilation of spoken word poems from Belize's most well known poets. The projected is spearheaded by Angela Gegg and the Grandmaster who host the G2 Poetry Show on Positive Vibes Radio. Today they told us why the spoken word is where it's at right now. Angela Gegg, Poet "You can read it on paper and perceive it in one way and maybe get one way from it, you don't really understand or feel the emotions that the poet is to trying to express and like what they're feeling. You read it and you may perceive it as something completely different as it is. When we put it on CD, we incorporate music, we have different tempos in our voice, different tones - the emotions and the passions of the poetry really comes out." The disc called spoken word poetry from Belize Vol.1 features ten tracks from those poets as well as Khalila Enriquez, Adele Ramos and newcomer Gentle Giant.

As the popularity of poetry grows, so does the number of local enthusiasts who will no doubt welcome the new C.D. launched today. The disc samples the work of some of the best already in the business and newcomers hoping to make a name for themselves. This morning News Five's Kendra Griffith enjoyed a preview of the performances. Angela Gegg, Poet [Reading Poem] “I saw it proud and I say it loud, just listen to me cause I’m a massive unstoppable force. Take the time, hear me now and listen to my voice because I’m from this land of the free, that’s B to the E to the L to I to the Z and E. So not because of the fact that I am blonde, beautiful and Caucasian, that **** don’t make me not from this nation because I’m one hundred percent Belizean.” Kendra Griffith, Reporting One Hundred Percent Belizean is just one of the ten poems on the C.D., “Spoken Word from Belize Vol. 1” which was released this morning at the Image Factory. Yasser Musa, Executive Producer, Spoken Word From Bz “In December 2006, this spoken word poetry compilation was conceived by the poets Angela Gegg and Leroy Grandmaster Young, who started a show, the G2 show on Positive Vibes Radio.” Angela Gegg “Well we’ve been doing the show on the radio station and we’ve had numerous different guests on and so many people have so much to say; everybody’s voice needs to be heard. So we all sat down one day and it just kind of just came out. We said why don’t we do a C.D.? Invite some of people that have been on the show and let them express themselves with their poetry, their feelings, their writings, their emotions.” Aside from Gegg and Young, the disc also features a newcomer named Gentle Giant and well-known poets Kalilah Enriquez, Dan Man, and Adele Ramos. Angela Gegg “There’s a few other artists that we would love to have involved in future projects so we’ll get them involved definitely but for the first one I think we got a great set of people and the variety of what’s on there is awesome.” Kendra Griffith reporting for News Five. Spoken Word from Belize Vol. 1 is available from the artists and at the Image Factory for fifteen dollars.
