There is a place of freedom and tranquility
A place where good will still prevails
A place so unique and unharmed
Yet virtually undiscovered
This land produced amongst the greatest
Philosophers, Theologians, Financers, Ambassadors
Many fought for what this land enjoys today
Forefathers, Nation-builders, Warriors and The brave
Yes there may be constant political discrepancies
Murders so gruesome and inhumane
You’ve heard about the copper pot, domestic violence, decomposed body discovered
News of rape, indecent assault, men held at gun point spreads like wild fire
White collar crime, maybe a few
Discrimination, maybe that too
Where in the world do such things not exist?
Where can you find a land free of crime? Free of murder? Free of rape? Free of discrimination and political rivalry?
Tell me where can you go and live your life carefree?
Circumstances elsewhere maybe far more gruesome than in this land
Freedom so confined, can’t even whisper, smiles are obscured
Childish quarrels over oil and lands, resulting in ballistic blast
Free of fear for life? Certainly not!
Why substitute freedom for captivity, democracy for tyranny,
Tranquility and harmony for anything that’s not uniquely Vincy?
We’ve been classed as a top tourism destination for 2012
The 2009 best sailing and yachting island
Vacation destination for Prince William and his wife
Many royalty visit these shores, with a sense of freedom, of being in paradise
Land of my birth I pledge to thee, I’m proud to be Vincy
Even with all its flaws, scars and inconsistency
Still it’s magnificent, flourishing and so lovely
There’s no place I’d rather be, than here in sweet SVG
