Heal Haiti

Dear Haiti,

Do you remember when life was an ember waiting to burst into flames?
Are you so tired and so uninspired, slowly drifting to the end?

Don’t let your heart keep breaking.
Move on. Please don’t look back.

We fall down.
We get up.
We try to hold our head up when life pulls us apart.
We fight and we bleed but all we ever need is
something to hope for, something to hope for.

Whatever we can see, whoever we should be is well within our reach.
Though nothing is certain we pull back the curtain longing for purpose there.

Don’t let your heart keep breaking.
Move on. Please don’t look back.

We fall down.
We get up. We try to hold our head up when life pulls us apart.
We fight and we bleed but all we ever need is
something to hope for, something to hope for.

We bend, we may break, but we keep it together.
We give and we take but we keep trying.

We fall down.
We get up.
We try to hold our head up when life pulls us apart.
We fight and we bleed but all we ever need is
something to hope for, something to hope for,

Something to hope for – The Underserving
