I am not a silent poet, by Lucia Daramus

I’m not a silent poet…I’m not a silent poet

I’m not a silent poet…I’m not a silent poet

I am an immigrant , yes, I’m an immigrant

my skin is dark, yes, my skin is black -dark

it smells of smoke because I have no home,

no roof, no bedroom…I am an immigrant

my religion is not Christian

I believe in stars, in sky, in sun, in stars, stars, stars

but I have curiosity for all religions

I wanted to talk with Jesus, I wanted to meet him

I wanted to know about his life

I wanted to sing songs with him about my stars, and his stars

but my skin is dark- black -dark and it smells of smoke

You, Trump, you beat Jesus these days because of me

because my skin is dark like black holes , like falling comets

you, Trump, you spit Jesus’ cheek because my skin is not white

it smells of smoke like celestial bodies in flames

I am an immigrant, I wanted to dance with Jesus

I wanted to tell him my story about millions of bear souls

and himself to tell me about his soul, about millions of Christian souls

oh…my soles touched the immortality feeling eternal life

in water, stones, fire and air….

my child , oh, oh, my dear child smiled at the grass thread

oh, the dear child , the dear child romped around a wild garden

my child , oh my child smells of milk blushed of the smoke of tent

but now he is crying, crying, crying in a cage

you, Trump, you ripped of the child Jesus and put in a cage

you, Trump, you said zero tolerance for your dear Jesus

you, Trump, you made Jesus’ mother cry

she is mother of the whole universe

she is crying, now, she is lamenting, and moaning

and crying, and lamenting and moaning

because her pure child , her child unpolluted by the world,

is crying in cage

my dear baby, my dear, dearest baby is so , so alone

under the Trump’s roof, with shouts, with frowning

and hostility against baby smile

Oh, world, world, world….you shut up

but you have remember these day of tears,

yes, because, you world, will be your turn,

you will cry and lament, and moan and cry, cry, cry…..

my skin is dark, yes, my skin is black -dark

I am an immigrant , yes, I’m an immigrant

I’m not a silent poet…I’m not a silent poet

I’m not a silent poet…I’m not a silent poet –
