Fragment of Poems and Songs of Love and Freedom

Fragment of Poems and Songs of Love and Freedom

G. Ramírez Santacruz

Expressions of love and freedom have been the focus of attention throughout the history of world literature. The world crises and the social situation made poetry and prose an escape from reality.

If i say bread
and my poem does not summon
the hungry at the table,
it's because the word no longer works
and poetry demands another language.

If i say love
and my poem does not provoke
a storm of kisses and songs,
it's because the word lost its magic
and poetry must seek a new voice.


If i say life
and my poem does not burst
a dawn of stars and springs,
it's because the word was left without gods
and poetry must be at the service of man.

Yes dig freedom
and my poem does not revolutionize
the consciousness of the thirsty for peace,
it is because the word stopped being an instrument
and poetry is bound to change poets.
