But When Thou Doest Alms

Posted: January 27, 2010 in To Help Haiti

There has been much ado about people giving recently to the various groups who are trying to help Haiti. We have seen radiothons and telethons, they have been individuals and individual charities. I have seen websites and so many other societies trying to get Haiti back on their feet again but in all that I see, I keep getting the same general message, who is watching me now. People seem to be giving for the praise of helping. I have no doubt that there are people amongst these that are giving with their hearts but the majority of what I see speaks of publicity.

Matthew 6:3
 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

Here is a bit of jestto take away some of the seriousness. I think my friend here took Matthew 6:2figuratively and got tied up.

But When Thou Doest Alms

 

Blessed are those who choose to give

Use their talents that others can live

They are a noble kind who choose to be

 

Working for others through charity

Honorable is the name that describes
this kind

Earnestly they give with no ulterior
mind

No selfish desire for fame, no qualms

 

Therefore remember when thou doest
thine alms

Hypocrites who in the synagogues
trumpet

Out loud their charity so their action
can get

Unanimous applause and global  praise

 

Do not assume their devious ways

Only in the streets will they have
glory of men

Eternal rewards do not await them in
the end

So let not thy left hand know what thy
right hand may do

That thy alms be in secret and only in
the Father’s view

 

Alms is a noble cause and its giving
must not attract

Lots of attention, the littlest
attention is welcomed in fact

Make your giving then be noble and
nobly live

Support the cause vociferously but you
must quietly give

And More Aftershocks

Posted: January 20, 2010 in From The Blogs, To Help Haiti

Every day there is more talk rippling through the air waves, spreading the unfortunate news that makes people think the worst. The greater consideration at hand is how we can lift the Haitians to their feet and let them live a better standard live than previously obtained. But all the rumors are starting to fuel into reluctance to help.

And More Aftershocks

 

And the tremors continue

Not seismic but from people who argue

Dangerous words like ripples in the air

 

Making unrest to those who attentively hear

One man’s shout in Creole meaning the food has expired

Rippled through the city and children hungry and tired

Eating the energy biscuits dropped them immediately

 

And precious food was soon refused in Haiti

First aid was paramount still the doctors say

There was insufficient equipment to save Anaika Thursday

Earth shattering ripples again spread throughout the
worl’

Ripples that the mighty US couldn’t save this 11 years
old girl

Shocks of all kinds like machete wielding men

Have rippled through the media with no apparent end

One shock of embezzlement and fraud detract from ground
zero

Casualties are estimated at 200,000, or more than we
know

Keep a steady foot my friend though the aftershocks are
plenty

Shun the rippling rumors, the racial slurs and lets HELP
HAITI

Le Haïti a besoin de notre aide

 

There are many touching stories of rescues that have been happening all week long. The rescuers continue to do their work to find survivors and have found some successes. The stories are not all told because most of the Haitians speak Creole, slang from French. I have enough trouble trying to discern what Bajans say so I wouldn’t even attempt to translate a foreign language. But even the barriers of language can’t hide the sorrow in the faces of these people and the ecstasy the show, should they find someone. The family here was elated to get back their 11 years old Haitian survivor.

Fille Anaika St.Louis

Mother, Don’t Let Me Die!

 

My favorite niece was 11 years and loved to play

Our little darling disappeared that dark Tuesday

The old building, 80 years with its 5 stories came down

Horrible thoughts surfaced when she was seen nowhere around

Every person pitched in to search the rubble below

Rubble was cleared by people I don’t even know

 

Dogs dug and sniffed then one dog started to bark

One dog capably gave the searchers a starting mark

Now men applied greater focus on this target place

Then her well known cries came and in my mind her face

 

Little beloved was there cold, thirsty and in pain

Eyes soon below staring and the rescuers fed her water again

Then they saw left arm and soon too the right

 

My darling got her left leg freed but the right took all night

Eventually, she was out of danger from the rubble and off to first aid

 

Doctors had futile equipment and we left betrayed

In a rush we took my niece to the car, and she spoke about death

Earthquake gave its worst aftershock when Anaika took her last breath

 

 

 

 

 

 

Same poem new acrostic highlighted

How could we who can’t fix the PSV, the Ports

How dare he suggest that because we can’t keep our homes straight we will not be assets to bring order from chaos elsewhere? I put to you the auto mechanic’s car – need we say more?

Across the border and far away they are still having difficulty controlling Universal Health care, Illegal Immigration, Drugs Trafficking, Human Trafficking, DUIs and much more, still they efficiently fight for the freedom of many, re-organize countries after disasters and wars.

How Can We Expect

 

How
dare you compare

Our
inefficiencies with abilities to organize elsewhere

When we
leave home do we not often behave

 

Courteous
to strangers and have we not gave

Abilities
never seen at home by our family

Never
heard people saying at work “He’s a different body!”

 

We
have lots of standards we choose not to upkeep

Even
watch chaos slip in while we play “Bo peep”

 

Excuse
me sir but I put to you

Xenophile
describes the weak and the unaware too

PSVs
and our Ports may not be in our control

Eff
you look at the US;
Health care, Drugs, Immigration ‘though they patrol

Can’t
be controlled either still they jump to lead

Those
in disasters and wars if these countries are to succeed

 

 

 I never know what to call poems that took on the same acrostic. Here I have written the acrostic poem using Help Haiti Now which is the local name given to the OCM public outreach to get the region to raise money to help Haiti after they suffered one of the worst earthquakes in living History. This 7.0 Earthquake as measured on the Richter scale devastated the Haitian city of Port-au-Prince on Tuesday, January 12, 2010. The estimated casualties although revised from 100,000 down to 45-50,000 have been revised up again to 200,000 deaths and 250,000 injured with 1.5 million displaced and homeless.

Help Haiti
Now – Hope

 

Hope is stronger than any calamity

Earthquakes show there might in seconds, hope for
eternity

Life is snatched from us in the blink of an eye

Put faith first and your hope will never die

 

How painful to have lost so many, how tragic not to see

A brother needing a helping hand like our brothers in
Haiti

In times of earthquakes in order to survive

Those rescued from the rubble need support to stay alive

In times of earthquakes when all seems lost

 

Neighbors turn to help each other at all cost

Our love for each other and our audacity of hope

Will rebuild nations from rubble, in tragedies hope
makes us cope

Help Haiti
Now – Lend a hand

 

Have you wondered how to lend a hand

Earthquake covering the Haitians in the rubble and sand

Lend a hand to pull them from despair

Pull them out of the clutches of disaster and repair

 

Homes, give them food and running water

Assist the injured and restore their smiles and laughter

Its easier now than you may think

Technology makes it as easy as an eyes blink

If you really want to help your brothers in Haiti

 

No amount is too small, all is received happily

Once you have decided to give then there is just one step
more

Help Haiti
Now – Pitch in

 

Hands are reaching out to you

Earthquake destroyed the city and their future too

Life that was once bad is made impossible from this catastrophe

People died from being crushed now others die from being
hungry

 

How easier it would be to pull them from the rocks

And secure their footing from subsequent aftershocks

It doesn’t stop there though but rather it starts

The people need food, water, shelter and hope in their
hearts

International bodies have demonstrated their willingness

 

Nations have pitched in to rebuild Haiti from this dire mess

Our country is pitching in too and to do more

I want to acknowledge Martin Luther’s Day. This is undoubted a great day in the anodes of history and should never be played down. The problem is that the same freedom that Martin Luther Jr. believed it is not a universal thing and many other country men suffer. One such country is Haiti and now this poverty stricken nation has been met with one of the worst earthquakes in recent history. There is no earthquake in the last 200 years that had so many casualties.  At the time of writing this they were still speculating over 100,000 people died

Thank God Almighty

 

Today
they celebrate Martin Luther’s Day but unfortunately

Haiti’s tragic earthquake still disturbs
everybody

Any
celebration seems wrong when Haiti
suffers

No
one can help feeling remorse for our Haitian sisters and brothers

Keep
this thought dear friend close to mind

 

Give
God praise, be positive and you will find

Once
you are faced with a tragedy

Divine
grace will give your heart serenity

 

Although
they are gone they no longer suffer

Life
on this earth was cruel now they have gone to another

Mortal
man when he dies receives an eternity

If he
lives a righteous life then he receives pure ecstasy

God
has promised things beyond comprehension

He
promised that His people will inherit heaven

Teach
your love ones God’s will and His way

Your
joy will never be denied on another Martin Luther’s Day

The words of Martin Luther King take on a different meaning here. I have been writing about the earthquake in Haiti for days now but I can scarcely tire, as I write people are out there digging their way through stone, some digging in and some digging out. This 7.0 earthquake devastated the capital of Haiti, leaving it in many places just heaps of rubble. But there is hope even after 5 days, survivors are still being found.

stone they moved brought greater hope

Ears
where caressed when she said send down a rope

 

And
they did and she put it around her waist

They
pulled slowly but surely taking her from that dark place

 

Light
shone brightly but she saw the smile

A
familiar smile from her dad who she hadn’t seen in a while

She
suffered during the earthquake but also for years past

Thank
God Almighty, she exclaimed, I’m Free At Last

 

 

Where Has My Girl Gone?

Posted: January 16, 2010 in In the News, To Help Haiti

The Earthquake in Haiti was responsible for the lost of many lives. They say then people will survived the initial blow but they died from being caught and not able to escape to air, water and food. If we can rescue people soon enough then the death toll may not be as significant. Last night were learnt of a little 16months old baby that escape the ordeal by walking towards the light

Where Has My Girl Gone?

 

We had troubles before but never like this

Had days turmoil but they ended with a kiss

Every problem I swept under mats on the floor

Resolutions this Old Years ended this, I hid no more

Except the dust hides my girl now

 

Huge pieces of rubble separate us and no how

Am I able to see where she now lays

Such a horror it’s like the end of days

 

My hope was strong though my hands grew weak

Yesterday I moved tons of stone and today I still seek

 

Got little energy left but hopes are strong

I will keep ploughing these days long

Rubble covers my girl like the mats covered  dust on the floor

Looking around I see obscurity from the buildings the
quake tore

 

Give me strength Lord I know she is here some where

Only it’s all so endless this debris, this despair

No sign of my two year old precious baby Shawn

Earthquake, you’ve taken her, tell me Where Has My Girl Gone?
