Rafael Manriquez: among the golden maize and the orange groves

Un Solo Camino
by Rafael Manriquez
 
There is only one road that frees your steps
There is only one destiny to walk: The one that unites our hands, that calls to struggle
There is only one road that grows in the fields. It grows in the furrows beneath your immense shadow
Rising from the valleys, the mountains, the jungle; like a cry that will spread over the earth
There is only one road to walk, campesino. It has grown in a time of sweat and martyrdom
Beneath the oppressive yoke that strikes your children between tears, death and hope
One can hear a song of unity rising. It is the echo of million of voices
It is the anthem that awakens your consciousness
among the golden maize and the orange groves
