feed them with what i have

Feed them with that

roasted bread, feed them with that

dry beans that i cooked yesterday.

Tell them this is what i have

tell them not to forget how

we cooked our meals

with those logs that are wet with tears.

Tell them it is enough to go insane

when all you have is just a dry bread that no longer

dissolve in water.

And the voices of your younger

ones echoes outside the windows.

let them eat what i have ,it is for today

tomorrow will be better and great.
