Dear Argentina

And now I’m right here
with the shadow of a tear,
recalling those days
when we could play
with no pervasive dismay.

What has become of you
dear country of mine?
Will you ever re-emerge
from the ashes left behind?
Will you ever heal from the utter damage history has set down on you?

There’s crisis and quarrels,
disputes and struggles.
There’s people fighting back,
wanting to attack.
There’s chaos all over the city,
Homeless people loosing their dignity.
There’s mattresses on the streets.
Bodies lying in defeat.

And I’m only right here
With the shadow of a tear,
tucked up in my bed,
covered up with a duvet,
just holding a paper and pen.

…I’ve already lost a beat…
