For Haiti I Cry Poem by Howard The Motivational Poet Simon

For Haiti I Cry

Rating: 4.8
 


My heart like a desert
My tears like a river
Shifting sands of sadness
My whole body shivers

I am sick with suffering
I am pregnant with pain
My ruptured heart bleeds
From my eyes flow the rain

Lachrymose! Lachrymose!
Haiti I weep for thee
Your sons and daughters
Have suffered tragic misery

I bawl! Don't ask me why!
For Haiti! For Haiti I cry!

We, Haitians, cry for Haiti every day. We bleed for this country. Unfortunately, Haitians are not really united, and they do not function in unison. L' Union fait la force or United in strength is their emblem, ironically the Haitian People are too divided.

Thanks for sharing from your heart. I wrote this poem over five years ago after the massive earthquake...

To me, this poem has the feel of a requiem and a national battle cry. It's very evocative. I like the subtle rhyme scheme and the use of different images to compare and contrast- the desert, sand, rain, river.
