It hurts to be you?


 

When the evening comes

The cry is singing

For the a poor child

Oppressed into labor

And it hurts me.

When the evening comes

The dead is dancing

Over innocents bodies

Smashed in the desert

And it hurts me.

When the evening comes

The scent is odorless

For an extinct nature

In run for the money

And it hurts me.

When the evening comes

The law is blind

For a criminal mind

Pleading insanity

While laughing inside

And it hurts me.

When the evening comes

Indifference is stabbing

As passing a homeless

Looking the other way

And it hurts me.

When the evening comes

The love is gone

For an abandon child

Inside of a dumpster

By a reckless mother

And it hurts me.

When the evening comes

The silence is calling

The thought of a question

That is pushed in abyss

Human, It hurts to be you?

When the evening comes….

Tulum


When I was in Mexico I coul not resist to visit one of the last fortress of Mayan civilization,Tulum.  It was very enlightening to be in a place with so much history.

Tulum also known as Zama (dawn) because was one of the first places where the dawn breaks in Mayan region. Tulum was the one of the most important commercial port of the east coast with high degree of influence.

The government was administrated by Batab who, with military backing, controlled the society which was made up of nobility, specialist and workers. Just like the White House today.

Everyday life was intertwining with politics, magical religious rituals, arts and astronomical observations. Most of the astronomical observations were related to planet Venus, the morning and the evening star. At down following the longest night of the year sunlight illuminates the window of the top of the Descending God Temple creating the image of the Venus star. This phenomenon occurs twice a year,around 21 December, for winter solstice, and 21 June, for summer solstice.

The magical religious rituals were held at the Castle where the Hight Priest sacrificed only the best of the mayan people to please the their Gods. Arts was held at the Mural Temple where mayan people paint murals with bright colors.

Tulum fortification not only allowed to control internal activities and to protect its residence it also marked the difference between the elite class and the common Mayan people who lived outside of the walls.

Tulum decline began at the time when Hispanic navigators arrive in the Yucatan peninsula.


If you are in Mexico I recommend Tulum to be one of the places to be visited.
