Anthem For The Jamaican People (Poem)

by Nana Farika Berhane
(Washington DC, USA)


We are a loving people
faces uplifted towards the sun
making our mark on Black history
out of proportion to the size of the island
we come from

We love the rock that we were born on
but will travel the world
to fulfill our ambition

We are a hard working people
faces upturned towards the sun
leaving our imprint on time's sand

We incubate sprinters
who become world champions
We produce great thinkers, writers
artists and world class musicians

We are a determined people
who are often the stone
Babylon buck its toe on

We are a hopeful people
We keep the faith
that better will come
and our trials and tribulations
will soon be gone

Nana Farika Berhane from my book "I-Lan
in di Sun." copyright 2014
