Brazil Holy Land
Land of Indians, blacks, and whites
Land of Portuguese, English, and Spanish
Land of Brazilians
Land of all times and peoples
Land of ten, twenty thousand years
Or is it only five-hundred years?
Brazil, how old are you?
Everyone knows...500 years
Of exploitation, invasion, colonization.
But of existence?
Since when has this Holy land existed
Land where everything that is planted grows
Brazil, land of rich and poor, whites and blacks,
exploiters and exploited.
What Holy Land is this?
Land of marvelous cities
Land of joy and sadness, of loves and the beloved,
Of music and song,
Of soccer and carnival,
In short, land of everything and everyone.
