Independence Day

The whole year crescendoes to

Independence Day, a holiday where Jamaicans

can dance, laugh, enjoy merriment,

having fun their way,

The outfits and materials that commemorate

Jamaica’s legacy, speaks volumes of Jamaicans’


The warmth, and inviting spirit that looms,

makes even the most skeptical visitor feel as if

they belong, causing them to bloom, as citizens parade

paying tributes and singing their folklore songs,

When a country has spirit, heart and patriotism,

They can conquer anything that goes wrong!

Black, Green and Gold

We come from the land of Black, Green and Gold,

Some say we are strong, innovative and bold,

Yet, our talents as a people are beginning to unfold,

We are scholars, lawyers, doctors, business people, and ordinary folks,

harboring dreams, but most of all, we strive to be the best,

It doesn’t matter if the rest of the world think we are THIRD,

In our minds, time has proven, that we have surpassed all of

life’s tests, our vocabularies and imaginative thoughts prove that

ONE is the only word we think of associating with the Black, Green and Gold,

ONE country under God striving to be made prosperous and whole.
