English Translation of Haitian Creole text:

If you can, tell me
what pain is greater
than a mothers pain,
my heart is tearing,
my soul is aching.

Who will tell me
why they killed my child.
Help me yell, help me scream,
ones pain is everyones pain

The one who hits forgets,
the one with the scar remembers.
A day for the hunter,
a day for the hunted.

I swear to God it will not happen this way.
I will yell, I will scream,
I will make the earth shake
so that justice and peace
can spread throughout the world.

My tears have dried
all my bones are broken
my soul is delirious.
Im screaming help
during the night, just as the day…
