Poem… Love’s Reason

Love’s Reason

(translation|modification of Razón de Amor)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

A century of my life,
I shall give you.
Whatever your soul requests…
Should you want more years of my existence,
I’ll surrender them as gifts.
Every year is a poem
of deeds and love.
Every verse is a song
about you.
I search for love’s origin
in philosophy.
“Tedious,” they may say,
“Too wordy.”
I’ll clarify my love.
Be patient with my method.
For you, for me, for us
will be this bonding wisdom.
We shall ascend together countless steps
in pursuit of loving knowledge.
Without deceit,
honest wisdom shall manifest one day.

–You can find the poem in Caribbean Poet, by Luis S. González-Acevedo or the original version in Spanish in Poemas Caribeños, por Luis S. González-Acevedo–


Poem… Poem for Philosophy

Poem for Philosophy

(translation|modification of Poema a la Filosofía)

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

It’s the mother of all science.
Its womb is knowledge.
It makes people skillful
or destines them to perish.

At times, it comes from God;
yet sometimes, I don’t know.
If it’s from God,
then it doesn’t blind or lead to misfortune.
It’s an angel of faith.

Philosophy marches in pursuit of intelligence:
yearning to know,
discovering wisdom
and causing pain
with its To Be or Not To Be.


–You can find the poem in Caribbean Poet, by Luis S. González-Acevedo or the original version in Spanish in Poemas Caribeños, por Luis S. González-Acevedo–
