As I drive through St Johns & feel the breeze blowing by ……..My heart feels thrilled to see our national flags flying high.The flag’s colour & design is a spectacle to seeIt creates a great feeling & makes Independence very special to me.
(2)Now….. reflecting back to Nov 1st of 1981,When our leaders broke the shackles from that country called BritainThank God, we are no longer govern, by the colonial powers that beThis is why Independence will always mean alot to me.
(3)Oh Yes, we now have our own our flag, and own our own passport;We make our own laws, to govern at heart.We have our own military, to protect our sovereigntySurely, Independence will always be sentimental to me.
(4)Now, when we stand to attention to our national anthem;It shows respect & allegiance to this beautiful nation.And when we take time to exercise our civic dutyShoudn’t Independence be always pleasing to me?
(5)Furthermore…… look at our ladies, flaunting their madras with prideAnd the men showcasing their national colors at the women’s sideLook at our school rallies, it is so beautiful to seeIt just makes Independence even more meaningful to me.
(6)Of course, you just might share a different viewYes, I am referring to you you & youBut when Antiguans are known for nyaming saltfish & fungeeI cant help but make Independence spectacular for me.
(7)Certainly, our heroes in my view, cannot be forgottenPersons like King Cort, George Walter & the father of the Nation.When we hear stories of Lester, teacher Nellie & our living hero, Sir ViviI will admit, that all this make Independence extremely wonderful for me. (8)So, as a proud Antiguan i will certainly sayThat i will defend this country any dayAntigua & Barbuda is where my heart will always beBcuz it’s a sweet little paradise which means the world to me.
