"Too often we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you, it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown. It only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and slap that mother@#?!&* upside the head. "

It’s been a year since your travesty.
Your wounds still visibly
Fresh of what happened.
Buildings still toppled over
Looking like the ancient
Runes of Grease or Italy.

Everyone seems to help, but
Your goverment is corrupt while some
Doubt that you even have one
At all. Helping you with your
So called relief. Hundred
Dollar Bills passed through
Hands of people who get
Paid off of your misery.

People making tents
Out of homes. A tent city
Within citys. That doesn’t really
Offer stability to a shattered life.

Contaminated cholera infested
Food & water. Consuming you
Whole with each hour going by
Slowly killing you until
There is nothing left of you but bones.
Some cant tell if died from the
Choler out break or from
the Earthquake.

It’s been a year
There is no sign of change
Yet you still have hope
For a better day.
for change with in your

Love goes out to my haition nation.
But it’s ok to shed your tears
