Descalzo

By Elvira

Sin Zapatos
los pies —
crusted with mud:
the story
of life.
Money                         in                     pocket
should              be able                                                to buy : food
“love”
but       not a    cleansed          soul!

Tears of shame
fall —
unlike HIS son —
for we judged
others,                         The plank hits the eye

And, in another world:
the princess’s  mask
falls
the Devil’s mark                      is seen
Black Heart
Black Soul
“Would            that      I had not
trumped nice              for Beauty.
Even with a
second life
the Path leads
to
Darkness.
