Marley 70

Today we celebrate the 70th Earthstrong of a LIVING Legend, and I say living because his legacy lives on and will grow stronger with generations to come. He was a man who used music, with his simple yet profound lyrics to make a difference in the lives of so many people. Jah knows his music has gotten me through some rough days! He wasn’t a perfect man or an educated man but he was however a selfless man who believed his purpose was to serve the people. A true soul rebel. In commemoration of his big 7-0, the Grammy Museum has dedicated February 6th Bob Marley Day.

For the week-long celebration, I dedicated some of my personal favorite songs for each day.

Monday: No Woman, No Cry

Tuesday: Zimbabwe

Wednesday: I Shot the Sheriff

Thursday: Waiting In Vain

Friday: Redemption Song

 Long Live Robert Nesta Marley

Rebellious Love

I wanna be your lover and bestfriend
The one you share your inner most thoughts and fears; a confidant
I wanna be your down a** chick, and feel your every joy and pain
On your worse day, be the only one you can bear.

We don’t have to be married, we can do it non-traditionally
like Cindy Breakspeare and Bob Marley.
I don’t need to be your one and only
All I ask for is your love, respect and honesty.

I’m not looking for the fairy tale ending;
with the white picket fence, dogs and the whole 9 yards.
I wanna have a part of you that’s ours
that genetically binds us for life.

I want being with you to mean much more than love;
Something life changing,
Give me inspiration, motivation and lifelong joy.
