Proud Jamaican (Poem)

by Carlene Munda
(Portmore, Jamaica)

Mi proud to be a Jamaican
Mi sey mi proud to be a Jamaican
Like any oder nation wi have problems
But wid a lickle unity, we can solve dem.

A jusโ€™ di oder day it come pon T.V. Jamaican win a grammy
Di way mi feel so proud, yuh shoulda si mi
A jump up in a mi house
wid mi family.

Wi dance and reggae music gone near anโ€™ far
A nuff a wi Jamaicans tun superstar
Like Shabba, Chronixx and Dalton
Like Ifricka, Itana, and Tessan.

Lickle Jamaica de pon di worlโ€™ map
Wi athletes dem deh right pon di top
Di fastest man, yes a we have him
Not to mention wi golden Olympic team.

Jamaica people dem talented fi true
If yuh tink is lie jusโ€™ look around you
Wi have lawyers, doctors, jusโ€™ to name a few
Anโ€™ nuff entertainers like me anโ€™ you.

Nuff tourists love fi come a fi wi country
Dem love di food, sand anโ€™ di sea
Dem love when wi dance anโ€™ show off wi history
Like di mento, di quadrille and dinki mini.

Mi naw go hide anโ€™ talk, mi a tell yuh mi heart
A nuh every Jamaican a play dem part
Some a dem a give di country bad name
Meck wi all unite anโ€™ get rid a di shame
And be proud to be Jamaicans
Be proud to be Jamaicansโ€ฆ..

I am a proud Jamaican!
