Poem: El Grito de la Noche

by Liliana Nogueira-Pache




Si tienes que decir algo

No lo hagas en la oscuridad.

Sal a la luz,

que el sol ilumine tus palabras.

Grítalas al rojo resplandor,

rasga el azul con tu lengua,

que el relámpago de tu grito

no muera solo en la noche.
English translation below:



THE SCREAM OF THE NIGHT

If you’ve got something to say

don’t do it in the darkness.

Go into the light,

let the sun illuminate your words.

Shout them to the shining brilliance,

sear the blue with your tongue,

so the lightening of your cry

doesn’t cry alone in the night.
