Walt Whitman - No te detengas





No dejes que termine el día sin haber crecido un poco,
sin haber sido feliz, sin haber aumentado tus sueños.
No te dejes vencer por el desaliento.
No permitas que nadie te quite el derecho a expresarte,
que es casi un deber.
No abandones las ansias de hacer de tu vida algo extraordinario.
No dejes de creer que las palabras y las poesías
sí pueden cambiar el mundo.
Pase lo que pase nuestra esencia está intacta.
Somos seres llenos de pasión.
La vida es desierto y oasis.
Nos derriba, nos lastima,
nos enseña,
nos convierte en protagonistas
de nuestra propia historia.
Aunque el viento sople en contra,
la poderosa obra continúa:
Tu puedes aportar una estrofa.
No dejes nunca de soñar,
porque en sueños es libre el hombre.
No caigas en el peor de los errores:
el silencio.
La mayoría vive en un silencio espantoso.
No te resignes.
Huye.
“Emito mis alaridos por los techos de este mundo”,
dice el poeta.
Valora la belleza de las cosas simples.
Se puede hacer bella poesía sobre pequeñas cosas,
pero no podemos remar en contra de nosotros mismos.
Eso transforma la vida en un infierno.
Disfruta del pánico que te provoca
tener la vida por delante.
Vívela intensamente,
sin mediocridad.
Piensa que en ti está el futuro
y encara la tarea con orgullo y sin miedo.
Aprende de quienes puedan enseñarte.
Las experiencias de quienes nos precedieron
de nuestros “poetas muertos”,
te ayudan a caminar por la vida
La sociedad de hoy somos nosotros:
Los “poetas vivos”.
No permitas que la vida te pase a ti sin que la vivas.
Un poema de Walt Whitman

Dead Celebrity - Messiah










Subtitles.  Translation in Spanish.




"Messiah"

Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.

Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.

I'm the messiah, I'm anti-celebrity,
I'm anti-war like John Lennon in the seventies.
Dead celeb's the movement, you're the students.
It's time to change the world kids.
Here's the blueprint.
Something smells like teen spirit,
Like the ghost of Kurt Kobain wrote these lyrics,
And forced America to listen,
With a million angry misfits screaming "fuck the system! ".
I'm the pain in Axle Rose's diary.
That's why an Appetite for Destruction lives inside of me.
I'm not your typical lyricist.
Acting gangster and selling out appearances.
They need to take a musicology class,
So thank God the prince has finally come back.
To save us from the whack water at El Creek's s sideshow.
I'm the anti-American teen Idol.

Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.
Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.

I'm like the hands of Michael Jackson's plastic surgeon,
Changing music into a different person.
I took it's face and changed it, replaced it,
Surgically, verbally gave it a face-lift.
And what's this new shit we callin' Blood Music,
For Dead Celeb fans who can relate to it.
-And now.
So let the games begin.
You either turn with the world, or you watch it spin.
If your dreams were stolen by a liar,
Then steal it back, like your name was "Winona Ryder".
Don't be afraid, be stronger divide and conquer.
Come out swinging like "Ozzfest" concerts.
Time's up, I'm calling you to rise up.
No more walking blind with eyes shut.
Find the message hidden in these chapters.
Like Black Sabbath records playing backwards.

Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.
Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.

I fight for this like it's a violent game.
I'm in between Grand Theft Auto and Max Payne.
I'm the magic in the hands of David Blaine.
Spit so much blood, I leave this microphone stained.
Along came a spider spinning webs of hated.
Welcome to the wonderful world of entertainment,
Where stars are born and celebrities tell lies.
The revolution will now be televised.

Move out the way when I'm passing through.
I got heads to the front and the back of you.
I got the world in my hands you can have it, too.
I got two middle fingers and they're pointing at you.

Fuck you.

The first time he met her, he was completely swept off his feet.

Interesting composition with pictures from young learners and the song.

27 Enero. Día internacional de conmemoración de las víctimas del Holocausto.



      Short summary of the Second World War.



¿Cómo explicar el holocausto a los estudiantes?

Enlace al cómic MAUS

'Maus, retrato de un superviviente' está considerado una verdadera obra maestra del cómic sobre el exterminio nazi y las difíciles relaciones intergeneracionales. Por medio de gatos nazis y ratones judíos, el reconocido ilustrador Art Spiegelman relata la terrible experiencia de su padre en Auschwitz y a su vez proyecta la compleja convivencia de una familia marcada por los horrores del Holocausto. Una historia hipnótica y agridulce que se convirtió en el primer cómic en recibir el Premio Pulitzer en 1992
