ANCIENT BODIES

June 10th, 2020

by Nina Yagual

There is more sorrow than a papaya has seeds, for every beauty is a million pains. We find wisdom in our brown bodies and miracles in our rooms. We are ancestral stars caught between the wrath of heaven and earth. We are fully discovered in the brightness of sacrifice. We are living testimony of what it means to mourn. Is there true happiness if only for some born? I really don't know, but for certain, we deserve it.
