I CRY,I CRY,I CRY

I cry,not the tears of joy,I cried when our
 athletes rompt the Olympics,
 
I now cry,tears of anger,tears of disgust,

Tears,enough to drown the wicked,heartless
 people living among us,

I cry tears of astonishment,tears of mis-trust,

So many great lives, disappearing from among us,

I cry,not with fear,but with revenge on my mind,
the taste of blood in my mouth,

Cherisher's of life,lets take back Jamaica,
east to west,north to south,
  
I cry for the weak, time to be strong,

Stop entertaining senseless killers,
walking with them hand in hand,

I cry because these killers have not given
 our children the chance to grow old,

Their lives snuffed out,before reaching their goals,

I cry with the intention of washing, this senseless killing away,

Cry,cry with me Jamaica,cry with me Poetry Soup.....

    I went to Jamiaca for my honeymoon. It is a truly beautiful country and I love the warmth of all the people I met. I am so sad at the loss of life, but especially the young. A beautiful tribute.

    So Sad Richard. It puts life in perspective when other people in the world have their lives stripped from them without choice and their life is long long enough to even making dreams........very heartfelt.
