Our Golden Girl


(The PurpleHeart Tribute)

In a glorious roar, her subjects stood in awe
As she smashed through the imaginary tape
It was her time to rise like hot air in a balloon
Floating on the open track to take her place

She burned through her heat with an easy run
Holding back just a bit as we craved for more
But the semifinal was a cruise of her gifted feet
As her time dipped below the one she did before

Confidently, she came out to her historic mark
With the determination of a fast and flawless run
Focusing on her race for the glory of her country
In claiming the title of being Olympic champion

Her start, a smooth transition of bursting speed
Had her closet rival trailing in the fire of her blaze
Not to be denied a destiny that was always hers
In wearing a crown on that illustrious world stage

She stepped across the line without even a sweat
Claiming her crown with such a triumphant smile
Rising above the doubtful clouds of speculations
As her loyal fans rejoiced with pure Jamaican pride

Now, the baton changes hands to a sprint queen
Earning her rightful place as our new champion
She has always been a star but she’s now known
To the world, our golden girl from Banana Ground
