Still Tears In Our Eyes For Our Dear Homeland


Still tears in our eyes for our Brave Haiti

Still tears in our eyes for our incredible Country

Still tears in our eyes for our mortified, martyred

Bludgeoned, tricked, tortured, vilified and murdered victims

The cowards wasted and riddled with bullets an incompetent president

Who could neither exterminate corruption nor nourish our arable land.


Still tears in our eyes for our dear homeland

Still tears in our eyes for our hardened souls

Still tears in our eyes for the caustic and unheard-of crimes

Our cowardly politicians have totally forgotten the oaths and the cries

Of our glorious ancestors who bequeathed to us this beautiful country of Haiti

After so much bloodshed, suffering, sacrifices, adventures and braveries.


Oh ! Our Heroes are disappointed in their well-deserved resting places

Still sad deaths where thugs, knuckle heads, vermins and gangs from morbid

Hells are in total control of the lives of our brothers and sisters

Still another anniversary where many good people are suffering and weeping

We're sick of everything that's bad and brooding in our country

Still tears for our battered, bruised, resilient and impoverished Haiti.


P.S. Happy May 18th. Flag’s Day to Haiti!

Haiti fought ferociously and won its independence in January 1804.
