Jamaica50 Entry #18 -My Jamaica! (poem)



Inna di heights of dis madness
Though we are all surrounded wit sadness
Di great Jamaica stands
Proudly, my Caribbean island.

Di black, green and gold
Represent each and every one us
Dis a wi year of jubilee
Duh, nuh mek we haffi fuss.

When mi memba days gone by
Our ancestors had to die
For our freedom and goodwill
Yes, they were proud Jamaican's still.

My Jamaica,
Your Jamaica,
Fi wi Jamaica.
Mek wi continue fi work togetha in unity
And celebrate our Jamaica big FIFTY

Happy Jamaica50th!

Love it!
by: Yanique Hewan-Lowe

Wow Kareen, you make me proud. Proud of my country and proud of you. Living away from home is often very difficult. I often feel like my wind is missing, like my passion for my land is a secret one that is no longer feasible. Yet reading this poem makes me proud of the longing I feel to be with my people. It makes me realize that that passion I feel is shared and known by you and all those who will love this poem. Thank you hon.
