[We] R/ Haiti.


We are
made of the same clay.
We love and grieve
the same way.
We are shaken up.
We are
mothers.
We are taken down.
We are
brothers.

We cry
the world's fall
under the rubble of walls
turn
our desperate gaze
to our creator's holy face.
No us.
No them.
We.

We
are
Haiti.

That is so beautiful, evoked by devastation...reality.

Well put. I love your writing - it is so authentic (just like you!). Please continue to put what we are all feeling into words.
