JASMINA
A Maria Rosa

“You dead, do sentence
life and youth.
You, judges want
deprive me, even, to live.
And despite of you my destiny lives,
and inaugurates an incorruptible process
where yourselves will be judged.
You, the executioners, boot,
ugly scavenger, hungry for prey,
bodies and members who must act
and caress coveted hopes.
Download now your rage!
What an useless and suicidal fight:
building dikes of revolting garbage,
cut little trees that were growing on the banks,
Not can ever plug these clear water springs.
And yet
even that I trust and hope,
even all your failure and your defeat
even everything I have and love, however,
even the joy of living and walk forward, however, the death.
Death to me.
The most unfair amongst sentences.
The most brutal of revenge”
