I wrote this poem in Liberian English as an appeal to Liberians and a call to action. We've had a civil war and so now is the time to rebuild our country from the inside out...physically and psychologically. We need lots of emotional healing in order to rebuild a strong and vibrant nation. So Liberian peepo, I beggin yor nah, leh us try...

I say my Peepo
Leh kahn tork dey plawa yeh
Yor know we fini fwetting dah ollor war deh
So nah aye tahn to hep fix dey country
Leh us stop all dey fwetting eh-mon oursefs
And stop all dis for nahtin tork
