Almafuerte - Almafuerte (English translation)

English translation


Since kid I found,
your statue one afternoon.
After that, I started to read
your name in lots of places.
Buses, shops, halls.
City libraries.
Streets, neighbourhoods, towns, bars.
And I felt the need to know you.
In San Justo I heard,
my grandparents naming you.
I was lucky the day
that I came upon your writings.
You chewed loneliness,
for not silencing truths.
And you fought against ignorance,
with no titles backing you.
This song wants to take your name.
As it takes my voice for the one who feels to keep it.
It was for wishing, and in the case one doesn't know it
that I made mine your name, Almafuerte.
