Translation of Haitian Creole text:

Since I rose this morning I’ve gone through ups and downs,

Running around in circles like a crazy mad dog.

I speak, I sing, I sleep, I rise;

I pray, I scream, it’s mess upon mess.


It’s a mess here, it’s a mess there,

A mess up, a mess down,

Mess everywhere, it’s mess upon mess.


Messy are my thoughts,

Messy are my actions,

Messy are my words,

Messy is my vision.


Everything is entangled:

Pain and joy, doubt and faith,

Disgust and hope, good and evil.

My head is spinning and spinning,

Everything is entangled.

What a mess!


Morning after morning, I fight a battle…
