Dominica asks why? Why are my people silent?
Have they lost their love for me?
Have they lost their courage to fight?
I am in shackles, I need to be set free.
There are those who are bent to do evil without ceasing,
To bring destruction to my name,
Hurting my own people and visitors alike,
I plead with you from crimes refrain.
Many of my young minds seem lost indeed,
Help them find their way back to me,
Breaking those chains of bondage that oppress them,
From their oppression set them free.
Have my children lost their joy, focus, energy, spontaneity and vibrancy?
Have they forgotten that love unifies and connects everything?
Wake up my children, rise from your slumber,
And feel the joy that true love can bring.
In the darkness of midnight,
When no one seems to care,
And evil roams around us all,
And fill my citizens with fear.
Lord of all nations far and wide help my people see,
May they understand their tasks in Life,
May they seek to do what’s right,
And end all bitter strife.
When will we ever learn?
When will they have the wisdom to discern?
As the rain drops from the sky,
So are the tears of Dominica’s cry.
Dominica pleads! stop my tears my children.
