Peace Always~ Shakira
Golden people, sun kissed skin
Descendants of slaves, an African people
though not beaten down- resilient...sovereignty
Each woman elder my grandmother reincarnate- ancestor
The spirit of Bussa, with the heart of Garvey runs through the veins
Jah, Rasta-far-I heritage merge- pan-Africans
Reparations are due.....it's true
Barbados I dream for you
A land of turquoise aqua
Brotherly and sisterly encompassed utopia
For this is your glory!
Surpass my expectations, this beautiful island nation
Barbados I dream of you
You have lift my spirits high
I beg to question why....
Can't back home share your vision?
Where racism is non- existent
Here I am sister that has returned to one of my many homes - Diaspora
Be united...stand oh Barbados
Be a beacon of light
Home of the brave and land of the free
Barbados until again..
I dream of you
