Jamaican poetry by poetess denise fyffe

Jamaican Poetry: Uproot

Stand tall and watch them fall,
Crumbling like Jericho’s wall;
Stand firm and do not squirm
No fear, only discern.

You got more in the line
You got time on your side;
You got more than they can see,
Far more than men like trees.

Stand tall, watch and see,
Like trees burning in a frenzy;
Fire at the root,
No more to dig deep or grow;

No more,
