I didn´t write the following poem. It is the creation of very wise and respected man (well at least respected by me)from my land, Since i´m almost sure that no one around here has ever read it and that you will probaply find it enjoyable, I´ve taken the liberty of translating it and sharing it with you.

La canción del nahual
by Don Juan Matus

I´ve given myself to the power which reigns my destiny
I no longer hold upon anything
so in that way
I´ll have nothing to defend

I have no thoughts
so in that way
i can see

I fear nothing anymore
so int that way
I can remember myself

Serene and unattached
the eagle will let me
pass on to freedom.
