It's My Birthday
Within me it's light.Around me it's vineyard.
Glitter of the sun,resplendence of the moon,
and the immensity of the stars,like the shone
of my minds.
The spiritual me,Godliness to accomplish.
My psyche to conform into humanity.My emotions,
heartbeats,the language of the expansive society.
With my physical power I will trail my destination.
With the opportunity of today,I will delve into yesterday
and project into tomorrow.Certainly I will spread my story
around the world.Lillies of the spring,daffodils of the stream,
roses of the field,the prides of Barbados.I will heed the fragrance
I live in me,my life-my willpower,the lustre of continuity.In celebrating
to have been born:emeralds,lighted coloured candles on cake,attires,
music to ginger the soul,the group-substance and integrity,munchies,
drinks,goodies,furniture,decorations...with a banjo,I will anchor my banquet.
