Luchando, cuerpo a cuerpo, con la muerte,
al borde del abismo, estoy clamando
a Dios. Y su silencio, retumbando,
ahoga mi voz en el vacío inerte.

Oh Dios. Si he de morir, quiero tenerte
despierto. Y, noche a noche, no sé cuándo
oirás mi voz. Oh Dios. Estoy hablando
solo. Arañando sombras para verte.

Alzo la mano, y tú me la cercenas.
Abro los ojos: me los sajas vivos.
Sed tengo, y sal se vuelven tus arenas.

Esto es ser hombre: horror a manos llenas.
Ser —y no ser— eternos, fugitivos.
¡Ángel con grandes alas de cadenas!

  1. El deseo de buscar respùestas atravez de las creencias. Buscar el amigo k no encuentras. Abandonar lentamente la fé. Ste poema es un grito de auxilio, un delirio, un desespero. Buscamos y nunca encontramos.
    X ese camino nos veremos.

  2. Family by Amanda Sell
    African American family central to every aspect of life. They often found comfort in each other. Whites had no respect for their families and would sell a child, parent, or spouse, whenever the price was right. But even when slave children remained with parents, owners tended to neglect them and their needs. Henry Bibb, a former slave, wrote that many children died in the fields or slave quarters because the mothers had no time to nurse them. On other plantations, elderly slave woman took care of children until the age of five or six, when the children began to work. By age 10 they were working full time.

    “The family must first be supported, and the slaves must be content with the surplus- and this, on a poor, old, worn out tobacco plantation, is often very small, and wholly inadequate to a comfortable sustenance of the hands, as they are called. In these wretched hovels were we penned at night, fed by day; here were the children born and the sick neglected,” ex-slave Charles Ball recollects. Eager to cash in on a booming trade business, slave owners pushed their slaves to reproduce after 1787. There became a sharply increased birthrate among the slave in the more settled states, followed by a slave increase in the new regions.

    Slaves were forced to witness the abuse of family members and could not stop it. For slave women, the lack of power often resulted in sexual abuse by white men. They were frequent visitors to the slave quarters. Bearing a white man’s child was not unusual among slave women. Although most bi-racial children were not regarded any higher than their mothers were, some sexual relations grew to affection between slave and master. In some rare cases, masters publicly acknowledged their mistresses, and even left to them in their wills.
