I am

Jamaican and American.

I wonder

how many books there are?

I hear

the ocean washing upon the shore.

I see

the sun and moon gaze down on the earth.

I want

the world to be better.

I am

Jamaican and American.

I pretend

that there is no such thing as war.

I feel

confused about the earth and everything.

I touch

a silver, warm sea shell.

I worry

will there always be war.

I cry

when I think of innocent people dying.

I am

Jamaican and American.

I understand

I can do things to help.

I say

never stop trying until you have reached the end.

I dream

of the world being a welcoming place.

I try

to make the best of what I have.

I hope

the world and everyone will find peace.

I am

Jamaican and American.
