An Open Letter to AmerIndia (abbreviated)
By Carla Moore & Mario Guthrie [ soundtrack: d’bi young.anitafrika & LAL]
xaymaca land of your naming
we say Jamaica like you were never here
what of xaymaca?
in 50 years it was gone
I know not how I got here
but for staying
you were a story
a thing a black child learned
a part of Jamaica’s history
the part before the real part

Mi people, samahani (forgive me) for not having loved you relentlessly…
Somewhere, sometime I had forgotten, watu wangu, lakini no mas!
malaika kama wewe hunikumbusha ukweli, nashukuru unavyotufundisha kila siku na kazi yako.
pamoja tunafika na upendo, au siyo?
