The Good Ones, for Hugo Chavez, Presente: Alice Walker

Hugo Chávez

Hugo Chávez

By  Alice Walker

The good ones

who listen

 to women

to children and the poor

die too soon,

 their lives  bedeviled

by opposition:

our hearts grieve for them.

This was the world my father knew.

 A poor man

he saw good men come and mostly go;

leaving behind

 the stranded and bereft.

People of hopes, dreams, and so much

hard work!

Yearning for a future
suddenly

foreclosed.

But today

you write me all is well

 even though the admirable

Hugo Chavez

has died this afternoon.

Never again will we hear that voice

of reasoned anger

and disgust

of passionate vision

and of triumph.

This is true.

But what a lot he did in his 58 years!

You say.

What a mighty ruckus

Hugo Chavez made!

This is also true.

Thank you for reminding me.

That though life –

this never-ending loop –

has passed us by today

but carried off

in death

a hero

of the masses

it is his spirit

of fiercely outspoken

cariño

that is not lost.

That inheritance

has gone instantly

into the people

to whom he listened

and it is there

that we will expect it

to rise

as early as

tomorrow;

and there

that

 we will encounter it

always

soon again.
