I wrote this story about a year ago. Today I begin to share it with you. I hope you like it and join me chapter by chapter, imagining the protagonists, discovering how much love can give a happy heart, even if it is living in unfavorable circumstances.
There are times when tragedy and pain come together to create catastrophes in our lives; for situations that we cannot control, that literally get out of our hands. Cruel and painful moments force us to block our mind, making us feel totally devastated. Lost in total darkness, and without knowing who we are. Lost in an imaginary world where the pain we feel is so great, that we are unable to perceive what surrounds us or to feel any emotion. We are like automatons, lacking in will, lacking the desire to remain alive; totally blind to the reality we are facing. But when our senses are coordinated again with our mind and heart; then we see the reality that torments us, and our first reaction is to feel fear of the emptiness that traps our body, the loneliness that surrounds us, the helplessness that suddenly embraces us, and like children afraid of the future, we simply CRY! Fragile and alone we think we only have two options: letting ourselves be killed by pain or demonstrating our character and overcoming tragedy; struggling to keep living. Because what makes the difference in our life is not the fact that we have suffered, what makes the difference in our life is the value we give to everything we have learned together with our capacity to help each other and have happiness. To be free, sovereign and independent is akin to flying high like the Quetzal over the tragedies without ceasing to be human.
Forests and mountains, I see die! because man only thinks about building,
cities of gold and silver That will be born! at the cost of a natural life.
