Dutty Tuff Manifest

Written by Rodney Brown

Call it the new Bolt initiative or we old Dutty tuff manifest cause as Jamaicans it is in our destiny to be the best so why wi nuh get a clue and put all this violence to rest show wi true colors and put our real abilities to the test our athletes did their thing, with all the medals they won now wha the rest a wi a do, whats our contribution what positive effect do we have on our nation I mean nobody naw ask wi fi run go tek up a sport we dont all have to be athletes to prove our worth all it tek is a little motivation a likkle change of heart and when it come to inspiration we couldn’t ask for a betta start you did hear wi national anthem? Sound sweet nuh true?

Well it stir something inside a mi nuh know bout you it mek mi ask miself, what more can I really do am I really doing enough or mi just a scrape through it go tek baby steps mi know but a the only way wi ago grow wi so rich wid talent it just a buss and overflow so why we deh hide wi roses and put our thorns pon show mi nuh know but dem say wha wi reap wi sow so the question beg fi ask. A wonder wha wi deh grow mek the only thing wi deh harvest is violence and blood flow with all wha deh gwaan right now I man want fi be positive but it seems everybody want fi tek and nobody nuh want give nobody nuh want do the wuk but everybody want fi live I mean unnu see wha deh tek place wi want fi claim the medals but wi nuh want fi run the race so while wi deh jump and cheer and wi own horn wi deh blow only some a wi realise say wi dirty underwear deh show and while the whole world see it and some wi keep dem mouth the more jealous ones among them will mek sure dem point it out.

What the whole world realise but the knowledge wi seem fi lack is that when it come to talent and potential,wi have a bumber crop and when dem a scrape the barrel bottom, we skimming off the top this is how we get by, and trust mi it need fi stop wi nuh seek wi full potential until we flat pon wi back so call it the bolt effect or anything you want fi inject fi jumpstart wi society and clean up this rotten mess mi know mi go do my part my conscience demands no less so until we talk again,walk good. Jah Bless!
