corazon poeta

October 31, 2012

esa voz cual en ritmo y sentimiento
expresa Amor, justícia y conciencia.

esa alma que lleva en el pecho despecho
y el canto de un buen canto.

ese espirítu
de un ser sincero
-consigo mismo primero-
que con su boca convoca
Libertad y Humanidad.

ese corazón Poeta
que con bolígrafo en mano
hostiga tumbar gobiernos
y darle alas a sus sueños.

corazón Poeta!

clama y reclama
tus palabras.

no se las lleva el viento,
pues llevan el mismo peso
de tus actos.

locksmith

January 6, 2012

i wish
i wasn’t born
a poet.

instead,
i would’ve
liked to have been
a locksmith.

my entire existence
would be dedicated to
the art of making
and defeating locks.

i’d lock up my sentiments.
secure them in a place
where they’d never be hurt.
no key. just a combination
of infinite numbers written
in braille ’cause Love is blind
and only it would know
how to unlock me.

i’d work on deciphering
combinations.
i’d learn to unlock
fears and insecurities.
i’d work on bringing light
to the darkness of a vaulted
soul and free it from itself.

but i am just a poet
whose safe
is a pen and paper
that unlocks at the simple
turn of a connection.
