I am that woman
To whom the time
Taught to love life.
Don't give up the fight.
Start over in defeat.
Forgo the word and negative thoughts,
Believe in human values.
I believe in an immanent force
It will connecting the human family
A light chain
Of universal brotherhood.
I believe in human solidarity.
I believe in overcoming the errors
And anxieties of this.
(CORALINA, 2004, p. 132)

And you only you, you are eternal…
