Valuable Cause

by Antonio Guerrero

what will be of love and the eleven o'clock sun
and the sad dawn without valuable cause? -- Mario Benedetti

We will show that are a path
traversing shadows of our ancestors,
that we are a mountain and a star
with defined attributes.

We will show that we are invincible,
that always the sun will rise for the valient ones,
no matter they lie in wait, they lock us up,
they keep our skins from other skins.

We will show that in the difficult contests
of conscience and power and vice-versa
never will our firmness cacillate

because love is our masterpiece
and until death fills up with life,
when one has caluable cause
