The Tomorrows to Come
The day begins with the crowing of the rooster, but where can you find a chicken in the city?
Chooks to GO, Save More, Fresh Options, but they’re all headless, how do you wake up?
You woke up because of your hunger, woke up because of a bad dream, a lizard fell on you, or you just needed to do something today just like many, but me, I wake up not only because I need to, but because I want to.
I wake up, I pray, then I make my bed so that my mother will have something to be happy about, she has fewer chores to do. After I water my mother’s treasured plants, I bathe my young siblings, Bambalito is the first one, because he’s still little, after him, Celo, filthy even in the morning, he hastily plays basketball when he wakes up. When there’s no soap, that’s fine, like father used to say, even if your body is sometimes dirty, what matters is that inside you are clean and at peace.
I’m about to go, I kissed my father and mother, my siblings,
The morning is so wonderful, as if I could taste the rays of the sun
My heart pounds because it knows that today is a new day that awaits me, together with the swallows and pigeons, I fly with my dreams and love with me.
I will continue on.
