Calm down.
Dont be so sensitive...
You must understand
exactly what Im telling you.
People who are hungry
are hungry on their own fault.
Is their own fault.

Nobody dies of hunger.
Its a TV show made of false images
to make us hang our eyes from
the TV screen.
What did you see?...

What? Ah...You are sure that you have seen
a six years old boy, thin arms, dying in the middle
of anything...
nothing to eat and all that?.

Dont worry
Must be a lie.
A six years old dying, lying
like an old one.

"Contenido Adentro - (Contained Within)"

Contenido adentro -- toda la gloria de la vida
toda la tristeza y el dolor, todo lo que existiera,
Lo que pudiera haber sido y todavia no es,
Lo que vino primero y es aun ultimo.

Todo contenido adentro -- agobiando la vida
haciendo cada paso una jornada agonizante,
Brotando pero tambien marchitando
Viviendo pero tambien muriendo.

Contenido adentro -- todo el flujo y decremento
la jornada gastada, el uno, dos, tres, cuatro de nada
Pero en caulquier sentido algo
algo enloquecido o gozoso -- pero algo.

Contenido adentro -- la voz del espiritu
el tejedor del alma siempre tejiendo
siempre construyendo noches bien gastadas
y dias bien completados,
Todo contenido adentro la vida callada.
William M. Sowman

Hunger does not cry out loud. It killed the silent slowly. Few mourn their passing.
