Marie’s latest project, her C.D. entitled "RUBY DO HAIR", 10% of all sales will benefit the GRIP organization. An organization which provides health needs and support to children rape victims of South Africa. After viewing a news commentary addressing the epidemic rape rate among young girls in South Africa, Marie wrote a poem entitled "IDIOT SPLINTER", which is featured on her C.D.

Marie’s poetry describes life good and life bad. Her most controversial poem entitled "QueenBee" is often misunderstood. As a teenager, Marie was told by a Black man she admired and respected, that he would never marry a Black woman because they were non-motivated and had low self esteem. Five years later when confronted with the same man and his white female companion. Marie was a woman fully matured. The man kept looking at Marie. His companion became upset and there was a conversation between the two. Even though " QueenBee" was written over twenty years ago many Black women can relate to "QueenBee". As a child of the civil rights movement Marie had no choice but to relate to the white man’s world. There were no Black Cinderella’s and no Black Prince’s.
Therefore at a tender age of ten Marie wrote her own poetry, stories and songs.
Marie feels it is her duty as a poet to motivate, stimulate and educate listeners and readers how the world is
seen through the eyes of a Black girl child now a woman living an ordinary life.
