Film > This Place Called Poetry

“It’s hard to imagine how bad you miss your family when you're really far away from them. It’s hard to tell them by phone or letter, ‘Hey, I miss you. I remember all the good times we had.’ But we can tell everything in poetry, by showing our thinking and our minds.” -- Jorge

From Jorge's poem "Historia"

Muchos pinoleros
dejaron nuestra tierra
buscando la manera
de brillar en su carrera
otros huyeron de la Guerra
y la miseria
refugieándose bajo la bandera
de las barras y las estrellas
tratando de olvidar todas sus tragedias
