Love is the legacy

It's the love for Nicaragua

that the fighting is about;

as about it were the fightings

of 1979.


Love lead the revolution

of the people who cared

and it lead the evolution

of the new civil unrest.


Love for our country

our neighbors and friends.

Love for our families

our volcanoes and lakes.


This is the legacy of those

who fought before us,

it flows through our bloodstream

it lives in our genes

and now that we’ve found it

we are fighting for it.


And we do peace and love

but in a whole new way

you can see it in the wake

of our peaceful protest.


We do love and equality.

We do peace and respect.

We care for each other;

we embrace and tolerate.


Gina M. Lacayo
