We are CARICOM

 Torn,

Tossed,

Tested…

At the mercy of rowdy, rocky seas;

Neglected,

Marginalised,

And sometimes abandoned…

Still,

A determined people
Join hands to share journeys;

Because, we are CARICOM.

Eyes teeming with life,

Our imagination abundant with dreams,

Commitment our armour;
We thrive,

We succeed,

Shielded by the unity of solidarity and diversity,

because, we are CARICOM.

 

These Islands,

enriched by medleys of life
offer beauty,

choreographed by nature’s hands.
They hold up a people like beautiful perennials
whose voices strung together in a cappella
withstand the tests of time

For, we are CARICOM.

 

Across this radiant archipelago of dreams,

Sunlit skies whisper welcomes,
days dance tunes of junkanoo,
nights hum melodies in kaiso,

Life hosts serenades
reminding us to remember

We are CARICOM

 

When pressed against Goliath’s heel;
our islands of Davids’ bloom strength
in light touches – unspoilt, resilient.
We sail undaunted by struggle
and buoyed by thirsts to rise

For, we are CARICOM

So when seas and gales surge against us,
we will prevail.

When life’s storm batter us,

We will rebuild from the ground up.

We sculpt courage from scratch,
We refund hope with triumph

And we always deny failure a seat amongst us

because, we are CARICOM!
