Haiti

Life and love are four-letter words
spreading their wings like soaring birds
Rising high and pristine like a snowy peak
only to fall like a salty tear down a cheek

Happiness comes when we least expect it
and then a tragedy greedily affects it
No one can fathom an explanation
and no one should turn their back on a hungry nation

We are one in our humanity
puzzled by the world's insanity
We must lay down contrived polarity
and help our brothers and sisters in solidarity

Surely where there is death and pain
Life and love will rise again
Even if it's for only a moment
The people of Haiti have always shown it.
