El Sistena

When the world was born

the maker gave each of us

a soul, a heart, a pair of hands

and bid us


go forth and find the way


Today, histories of seeking later

on a flight home over Europe

its memories of blood and pits

I switch on the entertainment system

listen to an orchestra of children

from Venezuela


And hear how one man with a vision

has taught a country full of kids

to find the way


And suddenly I understand, I know

why we still see rainbows
