Along oceans I sail, along
continents for centuries I walk
In search of a voice, in discovery of a soul,
Until our voices, our vision, our routes unite.
To fight against the darkness of time,
To dilute hate piled up during eons,
To prevent fear from penetrating our cells,
To close the gap of the man-made abyss,
To remove death’s wings flying over us,
Masked as nuclear weapons.
Oh You! Unknown to me then,
Your silence eloquent, eliminating distance of continents…
Till your sigh’s echo broke the storm of indifference.
I overcame with inner strength illness, pain, loneliness
Humanity's strength I learned from you.
Along oceans I sailed, along
continents I walked barefoot,
In search of a voice and soul.
In the springs of courage, in search of earth and food
I met myself in you.
Within your justice give me
See the starvation of my countrymen,
Remind the world of what it knows.
Helps swollen bodies to sooth their angry wounds?
Yet, a glowing vision grows
stronger by the hour.
God walks on our land,
stretches above the plains of our hearts
Like a giant protective screen, extending hope to the horizon,
Narrowing the distance between divided hearts,
Killing the disguised demon of poverty,
Exterminating all opposition against His guardian heart.
Unknown to me in the past,
you are one blood with me
On this journey
Our tongues taste both vinegar and honey.
Together we toil as saliva and tongue for humanity
Until we walk the land of Reason and Compassion.
