I was cursed to Love

I was cursed to love
The day at arrival’s gate

Slaven of happiness,
freedom and interior peace

Bathed with dryness
of the desert’s spring

Crowned with servitude,
Thorns and belly whiskey

To honour I chained
a memorial in the grave

Sacrificed morning, night
And noon to the woven trees
rabbits that dangle in
in their hole and the birds
that chose not to feast

Advance my heart
Roll my sleeve
in the distance that leads
to swollen feet in the scorching heat

Passing words cry out
to me, unknown from the height
Freed of natural beings

To mind, I present
Each moment to live
