My Quisqueya, My Boyo.
By Wilgeens Rosenberg

My land full of mystery,
My culture and rich tradition.

Where smiles of several faces
Undoubtedly have her story to tell...

Haiti my Phenomenon,
My Boyo.

My pride though in misery,
My contoured heart in humiliation
Yet kept our miles of African traces
That were never for sale...

Haiti My Phenomenon,
My Quisqueya.

PS: Many have yet to understand the phenomenon of Haiti and its people.

When freedom needed a voice to scream, Haiti yelled.

When eyes needed tears to drop, Haiti gave its blood.

Third generations of astonishing slaves told to ought to have been primitives and thought of as less than humans made civilization before the blinks of eyes surely the embarrassment in the eyes of suppressors grew to resentments as they vowed and manipulated for her demise and threatens her Sovereignty till this day. Still she stood, though weary and frail and at the verge of her last days like a caged tamed Lion that grew restless and tiresome.

No one would ever have came to believe the existence of pearls if they were told where pearls are found, morethemost there was Haiti.

In a world where languages are known to take billions of years to be created, learned and spoken; Haiti had hers in way less than a century.

When others have asked of signs of hope and a dreamy salvation, rather Haiti have given them physical inspiration instead and exemplary reality.

Freedom held no beacon to be flourished "Until She Spoke" admitted old Frederick Douglas.

In Haiti's arms many warriors took refuge long before they were able to have stood against atrocity and tyranny themselves and they have sent back their own swords to her praise, yet she asked nothing of greed and of wealth but the liberation for all, so says the fact of recorded history.

In hearts of many and those who believes Africa is the motherland would sincerely say She is the great Aunt as Poets have stated Phenomenal She Is...

HAITI my Quisqueya, my Boyo.
