Versos

"Yo no protesto pormigo porque soy muy poca cosa, reclamo porque a la fosa van las penas del mendigo. A Dios pongo por testigo de que no me deje mentir, no hace falta salir un metro fuera de la casa para ver lo que aquí nos pasa y el dolor que es el vivir." (Violeta Parra en Décimas, autobiografía en versos)

Unsent por Alanis Morissette

Unsent significa 'no enviado' en español. Tengo muchas cartas no enviadas, muchas cosas no dichas por elección propia. Recomiendo oír y comprender esta canción y dirigirse a su sistema uno de Kahneman para escarbar en los unsent de su vida. Por mi parte, creo que más temprano que tarde enviaré todo lo que me he guardado. ¡Prepárense!


Dear Matthew I like you a lot. 
I realize you're in a relationship with someone right now and I respect that.
I would like you to know that if you're ever single in the future 
and want to come visit me in California I would be open to spending 
time with you and finding out how old
 you were when you wrote your first song. 

Dear Jonathan I liked you too much, 
I used to be attracted to boys who would lie to me and think solely 
about themselves and you were
 plenty self-destructive for my taste at the time. 
I used to say the more tragic the better the truth is whenever I think 
of the early 90's you face comes up 
with a vengeance like it was yesterday. 

Dear Terrance I love you muchly, 
you've been nothing but open hearted and emotionally available and 
supportive and nurturing and consummately there for me.
 I kept drawing you in and pushing you away. 
I remember how beautiful it was 
to fall asleep on your couch and cry 
in front of you for the first time,
you were the best platform from which 
to jump beyond myself what was wrong with me. 

Dear Marcus you rocked my world,
you had a charismatic way about you with the women and 
you got me seriously thinking about spirituality and you wouldn't let 
me get away with kicking me own ass 
but I would never really feel relaxed and looked out for around you 
though and that stopped us from going any further than we did 
and it's kinda too bad because we could've had much more fun

Dear Lou we learned so much 
I realize we won't be able to talk for some time 
and I understand that as I do you 
the long distance thing was the hardest 
and we did as well as we could. 
We were together during a very tumultuous time in our lives 
I will always have your back and 
be curious about you about your 
career, your whereabouts.
