ONE HAS TO BE HUNGRY...!


To believe in you

one has to be hungry

since you live in the fresh bread

which is broken and shared

in every house, table and exchange

between brothers, strangers and travellers along the way.

 

To believe in you

one has to be hungry

because you are the banquet of the poor

and booty of the beggars,

who whilst being empty, without fields or barns,

descover they are rich.

 

To believe in you

one has to be hungry,

hungry for life and justice

which isn't satisfied with

vane, hollow, insubstantial words,

that can surprise us or gain our attention

but neither feed us nor satisfy us.

 

To believe in you

one has to be hungry,

for without hunger, we can easily forget

the two thirds of humanity that go hungry

amongst whom you wander

since they are the people who most attract you.

 

To believe in you

one has to be hungry

and keep awake the desire

for another different bread to the one they sell us

in markets, squares and places

where everything is bought and sold.

 

To believe in you

one has to be hungry

and, sometimes, choke on hearing you

to discover the novelty

of your presence and message

in this deprived world.
