Don’t Weep for me America: A cry from the outcast

By Luis G. Collazo


Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your enormous deficit

of justice and your obscene

passion for greed and luxury

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for the millions of people

Who suffer without healthcare

In the midst of the most

Opulent society of the globe

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your predatory inclination

for bellicosity and your

profound alienation from

peacemaking and the passion for solidarity

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your moral dualism

that devalues your  national honor

among the nations of the Earth

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your opportunistic

interventions in many countries

that paralyzes social progress

and ignore the cry of the children

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your syndrome of

Power lovers and your need

of humbleness; for the

abuses of your economic power that

sacrifice the sanctity of life

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your beautiful rivers and magnificent forests,

for your blue skies and precious prairies

that suffer the impact of an insensible

human destruction

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your political discourse

that praises lies and sacrifice  the Truth,

that proclaims democracy

and practices an elite oligarchy

 

Don`t weep for me America

Weep for your superficial religious

lifestyle without true compassion;

for your pietistic prosperity without

prophetic spirituality

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for the blindness of your

cotidianity,

for the vacuum of your dreams,

for the exclusiveness

of your feelings

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your cloudy prosperity and blindness to see

the richness of the World cultural diversity ,

The Amazon natural paradise,

The beauty of you moons,

The multicolor of your spring time,

The poetry of your autumn

weep for the distortion of your American Dream

And the lack of holistic, inclusive and loving vision

 

Don`t weep for me America,

Weep for your

Economic prosperity

Under the shadow

Of a deadly vacuum of HOPE
