lyrics

Ti Miyo (Little Miyo)

Little Miyo feels discouraged, every day in his life is a problem
The way he lives, honestly, it touches my heart
A guy who left the province who came to Port au Prince,
he thought he ‘d be a little prince
He stayed at his family’s house and they welcomed him

He thought things would be easy
He was admitted into the university, he attended Inaghei

He passed without difficulty,
his future was on a well-prepared route
He never forgot, where he came from,
The tree leaves he had to water,
at dawn he had to get up
His animals he had to be tended to before sunset
Pass by my grandma Dede’s to get some dinner - he never forgot

2
This life is so strange, it’s like a soccer team
but it sometimes makes you shoot a goal against your own side
He found all he wanted, life didn’t tell him to be anybody
People in the province never heard from him

Imagine - he was in a place where he didn’t have to spend,
people were always taking care of him
Two months yes, but two months didn’t even pass yet
And the welcome started to change

They were treating him poorly, they were tired
They already want him to leave
Poor little Miyo, he fell into trouble
Even for a little drop of water he drank, it was a big burden
Everything that’s bad they blamed it on him
Finally, he wanted to return home, back to where he’s from
Ignored his studies, which was his future, the hope of his mother
