At the end of the day …. Jamie Dunmore in Haiti!!


~~January 3, 2015~~

I have been following Jamie Dunmore on his Facebook page, his Twitter feed and his YouTube channel. I found a surprise tonight. 

Seems to be he’s been doing more than “spoken word” poetry and work. This is a side of him that I’m getting to know now.

This is a video that touches my heart not only because of the human factor presented but also because Haiti is a country near Puerto Rico, where I come from. Haiti is on the west coast of the second of the bigger Antilles. It’s part of me in some distant way … like a distant relative.

“Do Something”

I woke up this morning
Saw a world full of trouble now
Thought, how’d we ever get so far down
How’s it ever gonna turn around
So I turned my eyes to Heaven
I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?”
Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of
People living in poverty
Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”
He said, “I did, I created you”

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

I’m so tired of talking
About how we are God’s hands and feet
But it’s easier to say than to be
Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
It’s alright, “somebody else will do something”
Well, I don’t know about you
But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire
I don’t want a flame, I want a fire
I wanna be the one who stands up and says,
“I’m gonna do something”

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

We are the salt of the earth
We are a city on a hill (shine shine, shine shine)
But we’re never gonna change the world
By standing still
No we won’t stand still
No we won’t stand still
No we won’t stand still

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

  2. Dr. Rex, I’ve always been interested in doing volunteer work in Haiti. You’re an MD, I wonder if OTR’s have a place in Haiti’s physical rehab. In P.R. there is a foundation which donates prosthesis to Haiti. What a beautiful post and poem, y Feliz Año nuevo!
