    Poem Commentary

    I like to dedicate this poem to my parents and to my homeland El Salvador for having over 12 years of civil war where alot of people died and alot more emigrated to this great country including my parents and their children. This is what happens when the goverment tries to take over the whole country when 14 families wants to own a country and leave the people hungry and with no other choice but to take the arms and fight againts imperialism.

    REMEMBRANCE

    In my blood
    run fields and oceans
    The inmense pacific with its tropical jungle,
    with the martydom of forgotten heroes
    and historic ruins that fade with time
    between statues restless to be reborn.
    All this signifies a country, a nation
    with its name written in blood
    inherited for us, Salvadoreans at heart;
    and what a long road we' ve traveled!
    Like birds plucking the last breaths of the soul,
    waiting for a morning when the sun will shine...
    dissolving the wounds of our restless past
    and disintegrating our mysterious path,
    leaving only a horizon illuminated by hope
    among beloved beings and others we cannot see...
    Feel the fauna in your skin
    And a new path in your smile,
    giving a heart that beats with happiness
    for a future that will makes us free as the wind
    and inmortal like the fertile seeds of the Earth.
    Here are your natives children invoking your name
    together with a sole voice and heart
    far, far away from you...

    This piece takes me on a journey through your heart, your soul, your deepest human longing. You have allowed me to breathe in the peacefulness of your mind.

    It has to be hard to leave the country of one's birth even to make a better life for your children. this is a beautiful worded tribute the the beauty of your country. My friends from Salvador speak of their native land with joy and sadness. You expressed beautifully some of the things I know they leave unsaid.

    very pensive and profoundly captivating " voice of God" sort of feel from a silent yet giant imagination.captivating with your words and thoughts well developed.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
