Poem: Avochinan Preokupá - Worried Ancestors

Avochinan preokupá mi ta invoká - boso pa eskoltá i yuda nos emansipá – sin odio ni vengansa ma ku amor – ya e presiosidat di hoya akí - por resaltá i mundu henter - skucha ora kriaturanan - dje paraiso akí ku - orguyo grita: - Ami ta Kòrsou.

Worried ancestors, I invoke you to escort us - and help lift us into the sky of emancipation - abundantly devoid of hatred, but devoted with love and compassion - so the preciousness of this rock - may shine and the whole world - hear when voices from - this paradise reverberate - with a fervent cry: - I am Curaçao
