Haiti's Strength

HAITI - do not cry-this world is standing by
we are there with shovel in hand
because we understand.

your faith and hopes will not go unheard
we will try to save every girl and boy.
men and women, husbands and wives
sons and daughters struggling and in despair
and yet with their neighbor they will share.
the little that they have to eat
and help others in the street.

you hear their cry to GOD above:

lift me up GOD- lift me even higher
let me feel your might
let me feel your fire
let me never know what it is
to give up hope or faith
keep me strong it's not too late.

so many people have died in this tragedy
is this the way that it must be.
must we see all this death and destruction
to open up our minds,
and to understand your message
that we're running out of time.

    At hard times we should stay side by side or else there is no meaning in being.
