My Land

A land that captures your attention; encapsulate your thoughts of natural beauty and tranquility A land of divine sunshine. A place of seashores; a land with momentum water drop falls, exquisite white sand beaches, winding rivers and streams. Famous for its dazzling and enchanting creatures. Picturesque greenery with blue mahoes, palms and coconut trees, A place of much flora and fauna; with dandelions, roses and lilies. From plains to valleys to beautiful species of birds and bees. A land with people, people of different pride and creed. Our rock solid history of hardship and struggle to a future of power and strength. A land of much energy. Our thrilling reggae music led by the great Bob Marley Courtney Walsh, Merlene Ottey and Veronica Campbell legends of sport. A land with rich food and culture Oh can we forget our: rice and peas, jerk chicken and pork, boiled bananas, ackee and saltfish and rundun. This place that distinguishes us from the rest. Yes! a land full of flavour our land Jamaica.
