Haiti Endure - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

Proud people
Proud spirit
Who have seen the whip and known the fire of freedom
Who have thrived under a searing sun and enveloping sea
Who have bent under iron but never broken
Yes the ground has shaken
Orisha and earth conspire yet
These who have born pain with strong will and sea air in their nostrils
These proud of L’Ouverture
Will not pass tears into tomorrow
This life is for the enduring
