Yo misma fui mi ruta

Julia De Burgos

 

Yo quise ser como los hombres quisieron que yo fuese:
un intento de vida;
un juego al escondite con mi ser.
Pero yo estaba hecha de presentes,
y mis pies planos sobre la tierra promisoria
no resistían caminar hacia atrás,
y seguían adelante, adelante,
burlando las cenizas para alcanzar el beso
de los senderos nuevos.
A cada paso adelantado en mi ruta hacia el frente
rasgaba mis espaldas el aleteo desesperado
de los troncos viejos.
Pero la rama estaba desprendida para siempre,
y a cada nuevo azote la mirada mía
se separaba más y más y más de los lejanos
horizontes aprendidos:
y mi rostro iba tomando la expresión que le venía de adentro,
la expresión definida que asomaba un sentimiento
de liberación íntima;
un sentimiento que surgía
del equilibrio sostenido entre mi vida
y la verdad del beso de los senderos nuevos.
Ya definido mi rumbo en el presente,
me sentí brote de todos los suelos de la tierra,
de los suelos sin historia,
de los suelos sin porvenir,
del suelo siempre suelo sin orillas
de todos los hombres y de todas las épocas.
Y fui toda en mí como fue en mí la vida…
Yo quise ser como los hombres quisieron que yo fuese:
un intento de vida;
un juego al escondite con mi ser.
Pero yo estaba hecha de presentes;
cuando ya los heraldos me anunciaban

en el regio desfile de los troncos viejos,
se me torció el deseo de seguir a los hombres,
y el homenaje se quedó esperándome.




  The Sower (Sower with Setting Sun) - Vincent van Gogh

Before the beginning of years


Algernon Charles Swinburne


 

Before the beginning of years


There came to the making of man


Time with the gift of tears;


Grief with a glass that ran;


Pleasure with pain for leaven;


Summer with flowers that fell;


Remembrance, fallen from heaven,


And madness risen from hell;


Strength without hands to smite;


Love that endures for a breath;


Night, the shadow of light,


And life the shadow of death.


 

And the high gods took in hand


Fire and the falling of tears,


And a measure of sliding sand


From under the feet of the years;


And froth and the drift from the sea;


And dust of the laboring earth;


And bodies of things to be


In the houses of death and of birth;


And wrought with weeping and laughter,


And fashioned with loathing and love,


With life before and after


And death beneath and above,


For a day and a night and a morrow,


That his strength might endure for a span


With travail and heavy sorrow,


The holy spirit of man.


 

From the winds of the north and the south,


They gathered as unto strife;


They breathed upon his mouth,


They filled his body with life;


Eyesight and speech they wrought


For the veils of the soul therein,


A time for labor and thought,


A time to serve and to sin;


They gave him light in his ways,


And love, and space for delight,


And beauty and length of days,


And night and sleep in the night.


His speech is a burning fire;


With his lips he travaileth;


In his heart is a blind desire,


In his eyes foreknowledge of death;


He weaves and is clothes with derision;


Sows, and he shall not reap;


His life is a watch or a vision,


Between a sleep and a sleep.



Oscar Rivera stencil art closeup Puerto Rican Artists Fernando Ruíz Lorenzo and COCO144 Paint a Homage to Oscar López Rivera at East Harlems Camaradas El Barrio

Oscar has been in a USA federal jail for 33 years. He was never accused of a violent crime. He was kept twelve years in solitary confinement. He fought in Vietnam and when he came back he knew where and who really originated violence. Colonialism is terrorism. End Oscar's imprisonment and colonialism in Puerto Rico now! (The painting is a conjoint work of Fernando Ruíz Lorenzo and COCO 144 from East Harlem.)

    Blessed weekend indians
    Liliana~ I wish you all the LOVE and RESPECT, JOY, LAUGHTER and HAPPINESS, HEALTH and PROSPERITY and PEACE. You are a GIFT to this world, as well as me personally. I was going to ask Dandelion to send your petition in her newsletter, but chose not too as she works so hard. I was DELIGHTED to see she included it without my interference. I am so pleased you and she are friends as I see you changing the world with your Wisdom and Heart. I've felt BLESSED to call you my friend from the minute you joined C-2, and never tire of telling you. Thank you for everything you believe and all you share. You are not only appreciated but held in REVERENCE. Have a LOVELY weekend, in Peace! SuSanne

    Maybe the video will work here as it didn't on the news postings as you mention. Yes, charts state a lot in a quick glance.
