That’s life itself that is the way it is. You must keep going whatever life seems to have in store for you. You’re beautiful but it’s the courage you are lacking of. You need to get up every day to do your little morning exercise, take your little shower, your breakfast, and then resume your daily activities. You’re pretty; do you know this? You must learn to manage your daily life with a positive outlook awesomely displayed on your golden face. You’re the Creole woman whose sons of Haiti want to die at her feet.

Celine, the time has finally come to meet the prince of the tropics who has always wanted to make of you his Caribbean queen.
