In life, we stop daring when we stop caring, and we stop caring when we stop daring. Hati is considered the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Yet, its richness in courage is immeasurable. If we don't dare to care for a country like Hati, we will never care to dare make a difference.

 

 

Two hundred years of your Independence,
Yet I still wonder if this is your sentence.
Many believe that your strength is immense,
But, Ive yet to see them come to your defense.

 

You've been facing struggles since you began.
So, giving up on you should not be a plan.
Instead, the world should lend a helping hand.
Maybe then you would become a prosperous land.

 

From many miles away I can feel the distress,
Of a country where freedom is being suppressed.
Since of your demise, I am not yet convinced.
When I pray at night I pray that you be blessed.

 

Though you are said to be one of the poorest,
Those who have seen you have seen a treasure chest.
I know that right now you are put to the test,
But the day will come when you will finally rest.

I can feel the pain in this poem. Very expressive and spirtual.
I pray that Hati rises above Witchcraft, Voodoo, and black magic.
In Jesus name.

Amen

It's a shame that this nation does not treat Haiti as well as it does Israel. Lovely heart-written work Sis. Carmel.
