Sitting Here In Limbo: Got Some Time To Search My Soul- Jimmy Cliff

Reggae music is inspirational. It is a music that carries Jah’s prophetical message, the truth and the light. It’s a music that gives comfort and satisfaction to sufferers, the down trodden victims and gives hope to the common people denied justice and abused in the society.

I love reggae music, because it gives me inspiration to write without ceasing. Just as I love the music, the same way I love the artists and the players of the instruments behind the music. Jimmy Cliff is one of my favourite reggae artists. I love almost all his songs but not more than this great song called ‘Sitting Here In Limbo.’

Sitting here in limbo

But I know it won’t be long

Sitting here in limbo

Like a bird without a song

Well, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

 

Sitting here in limbo

Waiting for the dice to roll

Yeah, now, sitting here in limbo

Got some time to search my soul

Well, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

 

I don’t know where life will leave me

But I know where I have been

I can’t say what life will show me

But I know what I have seen

Tried my hand at love and friendship

But all that is past and gone

This little boy is movin’ on

 

Sitting here in limbo

Waiting for the tide to flow

Sitting here in limbo

Knowing that I have to go

Well, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

 

I don’t know where life will take me

But I know where I have been

I don’t know what life will show me

But I know what I have seen

Tried my hand at love and friendship

That is past and gone

And now it’s time to move along

 

Gonna lead me on now

Meanwhile, they’re putting up resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo

Meanwhile, they’re putting up a resistance

But I know that my faith will lead me on

Child Neglect relates to failure to provide a child’s basic needs. In Europe and America, there are organizations that assist in solving such problems or taking care of neglected children. In many parts of Africa, the story is entirely different. This is an emotional, touching and inspirational story of a young boy who finds himself in a similar situation.

Kumbe finds himself in a hostile environment, as a victim of divorce and neglect. An environment he witnesses the suffering and hustling his mother goes through to feed him. He was unhappy because his father was neglecting his family, spending his fortune on other women. He sees his adolescence as a struggle to win the support of his father.

At school, he was among the best students. This gives him inspiration to fight to educate himself. In a confused society, Kumbe spends a better part of his life visiting the library, reading and studying. Despite daily horrendous life he passes through, Kumbe excels to be an outstanding journalist and writer, attached to the president of his native country, Ghana, with enormous enthusiasm and optimism. However, in his lifetime as a famous journalist, his fame gives him nothing but hatred, jealousy and blackmail from an empire of deceitful enemies.

He stands strong and firm, destined to fight the cruel charismatic power of those forces haunting him. But they are stronger than him. Despite his wife’s moral and material support, Kumbe surrenders and dies mysteriously. Who and what killed him? “The Writer Died” is a truly remarkable book of hard life experience of child neglect, an indispensable and inspiring book for anyone that may find himself in a similar situation.

The writer tries to define, measure, classify, and understand what child neglect is like in Africa.
