Poem: A Child (translation of Un Niño)

Selected Verses:

A Child

(translation of Un Niño)
by Luis S. González-Acevedo

…Our planet offers so much abundance.
Anything superfluous and dispensable, we discard.
Our “love” is a native of Hell
because it doesn’t feel the misery in the world.
Instead, we steal the earth’s wealth and abundance.

A fragile child staggers.
She falls and curls up, suffering.
A desperate mother falls upon her,
murdered by the world that let her die.
