A Death in Cajamarca, Peru (Atahualpa, in Cajamarca ((in English and Spanish))
The Epic Poem:
A Death in Cajamarca, Peru
Advance: This is a version, not a translation of any kind, on the incarceration and death of Atahualpa the Inca King of the Inca Empire, in the 16th century (Peru).
Atahualpa, enduring in Cajamarca
And yes, Atahualpa felt the great God was by his side
If Spaniards thought and said they were gods,
What most aroused Atahualpa's brother, Titu--
As it was Riquelme who voted to hang Atahualpa
Thus much was said, by the ruling hand of Pizarro
The sun is dropping-all the sky's ablaze-
As long as Inca's shall be know to men
Una Muerte en Cajamarca, Perú
Avance: Esta es una versión, no una traducción de ninguna clase, sobre el encarcelamiento y la muerte de Atahualpa, el Rey Inca del Imperio Incaico, en el siglo XVI (Perú).
Atahualpa, sufriendo en Cajamarca
Y si, Atahualpa sintió que el gran Dios estaba de su lado
Si los españoles pensaron y dijeron que eran dioses,
Lo que más azuzó al hermano de Atahualpa, Titu-
Como fue Riquelme quien votó para colgar a Atahualpa
Así, mucho fue dicho, por la mano gobernante de Pizarro
Mientras el Inca sea reconocido por los hombres

Poetry and Popular Culture
Is poetry too complicated for the average reader? Is it too cryptic, scholarly? If you ask a large group of average people what they like or don't like about poetry, you'll get a few different answers, but there is an overwhelmingly common category of responses.One of the main reasons that people say they aren't addicted to contemporary poetry is that they feel it is too cryptic.

As I picked up some of the polished gemstones in the rock store I began to think about what the stones looked like before they were polished. The store had several rocks on display showing the before and after and I realized that unless you knew what you were looking for, you could easily pass by a valuable gemstone.

Its What She Didnt Say
When I hear your voice inside my head it makes me think of you every single day as I fight back tears of sadness and wonder if you're okayMy life is empty without you I wish time would take away the pain but the ache in my heart persists and my simple hopes seem in vainI realize how much I hurt you and now I know it's too late to tell you how sorry I am and expect you not to hateI don't deserve a second chance to show you how much I care when you needed me the most I know I failed to be thereNow your trust in me is gone forever and I will never have the chance to say I really hope your dreams come true and happiness finds you every dayI would give almost anything in life if I could go back to that day and erase everything I said and did to make your heartache go awayWhat hurts the most is this is what you didn't say and the absence of these words haunt me each and every day..
