Amirah Al- Wassif

A Courage Woman Boil The Bananas

a courage woman boil the bananas
and watches her people on Haiti mountain
run away behind her dream
with curly hair and hidden pain
she bribes the sun with her smile
to dissolve the hot and murmured
” Amen”

a courage woman boil the bananas
and never experienced its taste
always surrounded with tents and hungrier
much secrets there, in her chest
counting the footsteps in the sand
reveals how many persons are lost!

the Haiti girl plants the corn with her father on the highest
she tides his body with the robes, she trying her best
and to make our life better
what should we do?
if we through our ages truly suffer
if all our times were blue?

a courage woman boil the bananas
and touches her baby skin
” Work…Work” a sound around cries in the space said by men

she tore the tent with a huge passion
she never understands what a mean of station
where everybody needs to dream, to travel
but there isn’t her reality level

a courage woman boil the bananas
and watches her people on Haiti mountain
run away behind her dream
with curly hair and hidden pain
she bribes the sun with her smile
to dissolve the hot and murmured
” Amen”
