You My Paradise

Serbal 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

destruction, war.

Oblivion is perhaps its fate.
