La búsqueda / Rafael Cadenas

The Search

We never found the Grail.
The tales weren’t veridical.
Only the fatigue of the roads accompanied
those who ventured out,
but we were expecting stories,
what would our living be
without them?

Nothing was resolved,
we could have stayed home.
But we’re so restless.
And yet, once the journey ended
we felt that within us
—no longer hostages
to expectation—
another temper
had been born.
