Jamaica Land I Love

Jamaica50 Entry #10 Jamaica Land I Love (Poem)



Jamaica is 50 years old,
As a nation we should be strong and bold,
We have truly reached a huge milestone,
Indeed we have demonstrated that we have our own backbone.

In this fiftieth year,
Our nation we should hold dear,
Like an emblem, our country’s pride we should wear,
And we should ensure that this pride we never smear.

But what should we really contribute to this land?
Is it neglect? Is it mistreatment? NO, it is a lending hand?
We must live as a small yet peaceful isle,
For our country we must go the extra mile.

So in the 50th celebration, let us not hesitate,
To make meaningful contributions for our country’s sake,
Let us remain committed and true to this nation,
Let us pave the way for the next generation.

I love Jamaica with all my heart,
I will always love my country, until death do us part,
Even after death, to this isle I’ll stay true,
And I would advice you to do the same too.

-J.Williams

Happy Jamaica50th!

Half a Century and Rock Solid
by: Valrose

I find this poem exceptional, it touches all the areas that we as Jamaician should embrace and be proud of. Additionally, one should not forget from whence we came and always subscribe to the highest accolades when we examine what Jamaica as a nation has endured and instilled in its people ... 'out of many one people'. We should truly represent and show the positive aspects of such a wonderful nation.

God bless JAMAICA.
Happy 50th
