I ain’t repeating 2018
BOY, LOOKA HOW Christmas Day come and gone long ’bout it business doh nuh? Well, well, well, some people could talk whatevah duh like, but tuh me, it is worth all the hal-a-bul-loo, as people would say. It is the most wonderful time of the year, as the song says.
So now another year has come tuh an end and a new one has just begun.
This morning, I was by a friend o’ mine and we was talking ’bout the whole Christmas season and even reminiscing ’bout how long the season used tuh last and the fun and joy it would bring. It is the same thing I talk ’bout last week when I write ’bout the people who does cry down Christmas.
So a fella was there and she ask him how he spend he Christmas. The first thing he said was dat it wasn’t too bad, dat it was alright. He went on tuh say dat he doan really get carried away wid it. My friend start tuh laugh and tell me, doan mind he, that he enjoy it just like anybody else, but some people does have tuh say something negative.
Anyway, Christmas 2018 has gone and 2019 is here. I ain’t looking back at nutten. I ain’t crying ovah all the testings, all the trials, all the lot o’ hard times and bad times. I ain’t hating nor blaming nuhbody fuh nutten. I ain’t looking back wid any kind o’ regret and I ain’t saying shoulda, woulda nor coulda.
I ain’t repeating 2018 ’cause fuh one, I gine be one year older and would be expected tuh see and do things in a more mature way; tuh be wiser. Nuh matter how old
I am or get, I think dat every single year should teach ya something more and something different.
I looking forward tuh a year of peace and prosperity, a year of hope, a year of less stress fuh the police, because of a drop in the amount of gun violence; also fuh more help fuh the farmers who working hard every day only fuh thieves tuh tief duh crops every night.
Place of learning
I looking forward tuh a year where men would step up tuh the plate and own up tuh their responsibilities and become good, responsible and reliable fathers.
I looking forward tuh school being a place of learning and fun as opposed tuh a place of warfare.
I looking forward to the crime fighters getting a breakthrough and finding out how some o’ the guns getting into this country and finding duh way into the hand of li’l lawless young boys.
I looking forward tuh this Government coming down ’pon all the people who tiefing water and who owe back taxes. I looking forward tuh seeing the employers who take out employees’ money when the week or month come and doan pay in one cent tuh Government, and the people who owe the Government money all the way up in the thousands tuh be brought tuh justice.
I looking forward tuh seeing Barbados rise again and I looking forward tuh a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year for all Barbadians.
