Nou di ase/We say “Enough”

4 02 2011

Malgre tout sa n’ap pase

Nou toujou espere

Yon jou sa ka chanje

Menm lè souf nou preske koupe.

Nou di ase

Pou sa n’ap pase

Menm lè moun ki konsène

Pa janm tande vwa n’ k’ap kriye.

Yo fè n vote

Pou Bon lespwa

Lè n’ revandike

Yo bann kout bwa.

Yo di n’ naje

Pou n’ ka soti

Bouche nen nou

Bwè dlo santi.

Sa k’ pa gen kè

Viv nan mizè

Y’ale vole

Fè kidnapè

Kilè Ayiti ap sispann viktim

Anba kolè laniti

Yon ti lapli

Nou gen moun viktim.

Tranblemanditè te komanse

Kolera men map kontinye

Anpil fanmi pa sispann kriye

Mize pèp la k’ap ogmante.

Yo di, aprè soufrans

Se delivrans

Si n’ pran konsyans

Nou gen yon chans.

Moun k’ap kriye

An nou priye

Se sèl Bondye

K’ ka delivre n.’.

*********************************************************

In spite of everything that has happened to us

We still hope.

Someday, this can change

Even as our breath ceases to flow.

We say “Enough”

To what has happened to us

Even as the leaders who should be concerned

Refuse to hear our voices as we cry out.

They make us vote

All in good faith.

When we assert ourselves,

They cut us down.

They tell us to swim

So that we can escape.

Hold our noses

And drink stinking water.

Those who have no hearts

Live in misery

They go out and steal

They kidnap

When will Haiti stop being a victim

Of Nature’s wrath?

Even a little rain

Makes us victims over again.

It began with the earthquake

It continues with cholera

Many families haven’t stopped crying

The people’s misery grows and grows

They say: After suffering

Comes deliverance.

If we keep our conscience

We still have a chance.

People are crying.

Let us pray.

It is only God

Who can deliver us.

Joseph,

M ta renmen remèsye w pou bèl powèm sa a. Ou ekri trè byen, e m espere ou pral kontinye pataje pwezi ou ak nou. M kwè se enpòtan anpil pou moun ozetazini tande vwa ou, paske majorite moun bò isit pa konprann vre sitiyasyon an Ayiti. Si m mèt poze w yon kesyon, kilè ou te koumanse ekri pwezi?
