You My ParadiseSerbal Vidrio latin american
Part of a series on latin american poems
Originally Written by Hugo Jamioy Juagibioy
If there is a paradise
in these Indian lands,
why isn’t there one
in others’ lands?
A solitary paradise
suffocated by a space
where violence, narcotrafficking
surround it and little by little destroy it.
A paradise where peace
once reigned among its inhabitants,
where respect and tolerance
were the pillars of life.
A paradise that today is only
history and nothing more
because it has seen the arrival of
Oblivion is perhaps its fate.
