A Tribute to Guyana on its 40th anniversary of Independence.


A Tribute to Guyana on its 40th anniversary of Independence.
Undaunted
by Maureen B Singh


Raise your head

feel

the new rays of golden sunshine

see

the prismatic colours of the rainbow?

they are a gift of hope

A reminder

that when evil has done

all that it can do - and more

We still get up

knowing

that our history

and our democracy

cannot be consumed

by the fires of funeral pyres

or perish in graves

of patriots.

Maureen Singh is a Guyanese poet and writer living in Barbados andthe recipient of the Barbados 2004 National Independence Festival ofCreative Arts (NIFCA) Literary Arts Environment Award.
