Joseph Edwards is currently a final year student of the International University of the Caribbean located in Kingston, Jamaica. He grew up in the parish of St. Catherine, and is a lover of the English Language. Expressions in writing has been second nature to him from a very tender age and poetry is just one way of sharing his thoughts with the world.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read factual material to include current local and international affairs, religious, educational and the mysteries of nature.
Indulge in this wonderful little book. Read it in your spare time and be awed at the diversity found in such a small country. Take with you a few Jamaican terms and learn about some of our history. Jamaican Roots is a book of poems written to enrich and sooth the heart and mind of anyone wishing to learn about that beautiful Caribbean island.
An interesting read is hidden in this book of Poems with themes of childhood events, youthful folly, the bond on friendship, scenic views in nature and the unchanging universal themes such as love, hate, greed and kindness.
