This year is a special year as Jamaica celebrates 50 years of Independence. Below is a poem that I wrote about my homeland.
Jamaica my tropical homeland
Is a place to enjoy sea, sun and sand.
A rich culture here abounds,
Come listen to the pulsating reggae sounds.
Delicious cuisine includes a national dish,
We call it ackee and saltfish.
Spices and herbs provide a sizzling flavour,
A wide range of food you will truly savour.
Blue Mountain coffee is our own,
It has become world renowned.
You will be amazed at the variety of fauna,
Same is the case with our flora.
For sure you will find a big event,
Where many hours will be enjoyably spent.
Artwork and craft items you will want to purchase,
A visit to my paradise will be a memorable experience.
