Latinos por un sueño americano

Latinos for an American Dream

por Odalis 

by Odalis

 

Partimos de nuestro país,

We left our countries,

Cansados de tanta pobreza.

Tired of so much poverty.

Abandonando a nuestra familia,

Abandoning our family,

Para ayudarlos en esta vida.

To help them in this life.

Resbalan por nuestras mejillas,

Bitter tears,

Unas lágrimas amargas.

Rolling down our cheeks.

En el fondo de nuestro llanto,

Our carry our defeated souls,

Derrotada llevamos el alma.

Crying from deep within.

Un sueño venimos a construir,

We come to build a dream,

En este nuevo país.

In this new country

Difícil de conseguir,

Difficult to achieve,

Pero no imposible cumplir.

But not impossible to carry out.

Con la frente en alto,

With our heads held high,

Seguimos luchando.

We keep on struggling,

La vida arriesgamos,

Risking our lives,

Por el sueño americano.

For the American Dream.
