What You Saying Usain?
"Someone so naturally blessed
Could think they're above reproach
"Instead your success you attribute to trusting and obeying your coach"
"Hats off"! and hearty thanks for letting go of your passion cricket ..."
"And honing your great athletic gift reaching many an Olympic wicket"
"How proud you've made Jamaica by being the world's fastest man!.."
"Congrats on the medals and records more so for having and keeping your plan"
"Your interviews are inspiring you are polite, cool and real.."
Not afraid to tell it like it is or state how you really feel.
The lessons from your parents are deep within your heart.
They helped you be the man who can to others respect impart
Among the many lessons from you that me inspire
Is your value of family and friends and the goals to which you aspire
Anyone who's seen you win knows you also love to dance.
Greet and entertain your fans
"To the world" has been your stance
How many pay attention at the beginning of each race
To your way of acknowledging that in your life God has a place?
Hats off"! and hearty thanks
For letting go of your passion cricket..
... In such a way that God's crown you'll get
For a humble, faithful, life well spent
My prayer is that you'll continue
To enjoy success and contentment
As you, your loving parents honour and obey
Jamaica has honoured you
With the Order of J.
U may not have bat a century
But you've run a metre hundred - and two
Now u can retire on top
Do more of what you love to do
..And honing your great athletic gift
Reaching many an Olympic wicket
