Our pains are our shames.
These gifts bequeathed from our fathers and inherited from our mothers
We carry our wounds within
We cradle and caress them: our yesterday ghosts
Though the winds may ask of us their release;
We carry marks on us as if we were already condemned.
We turn always our faces from the East
Though the wind unavailingly requests of us release
of yesterday ghosts
