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.
