Tienes que hacer esto. Lo necesitamos

Es por algo que la metáfora de "mantener el fuego" sigue apareciendo. Cormac McCarthy hablaba de esto en The Road, la novela que escribió para su hijo. Ahora Alanis Morissette le da su propio giro en la canción que escribió para sus hijos: "Ablaze".


"Mi misión es mantener la luz de tus ojos encendida" - Alanis Morissette

Les cuenta que parece que estamos separados, pero que en realidad somos uno.


Que se van a sentir tristes, que lo que hay no es suficiente y que no importa cuando recuerdan que en realidad, somos uno.


A su hijo lo llama "precioso, gentil guerrero". De su hija admira su fuego e inocencia.


Puedes verla en el show de Jimmy Fallon dando ejemplo. Mientras algunos nos ponemos nerviosos cuando nuestros hijos se atraviesan en la junta de Zoom, Alanis canta con su hija en brazos, jugando con ella, tapándole la boca.



Eso es lo que tenemos que proteger, sin importar su edad.


Nuestro trabajo es mantenerlos como nacieron: fundamentalmente buenos, inocentes, puros. Tenemos que ayudarles a mantener el fuego, a mantener la luz de sus ojos encendida.


No importa cuán oscuro se ponga el mundo.


De hecho, ahora más que nunca, porque el mundo es tan oscuro.

Ablaze

Alanis Morissette


[Verse 1]

First thing that you'll notice is some separation from each other

Yes, it's a lie, we've been believing since time immemorial

There was an apple, there was a snake, there was division

There was a split, there was a conflict in the fabric of life


[Verse 2]

One became two, and then everyone was out for themselves

Everyone was pitted against each other, conflict ruled the realm

All our devotions and temperaments are pulled from different wells

We seem to easily forget we are made of the same cells


[Chorus 1]

To my boy, all that energy, so vital

Love your hues and your blues in equal measure

Your comings and your goings-away

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze


[Verse 3]

Second thing you'll notice is that often we think that there's not enough

It might feel dark, it might feel lonely and you'll wonder why you're here

You'll be overcome with darkness and a sense of hopelessness

But it won't matter if you keep the core connected to the oneness


[Chorus 2]

To my girl, all your innocence and fire

When you reach out, I am here hell or high water

This nest is never going away

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze



[Bridge]

And this cord is unbreakable

This pilot light is there in your pocket

And this bond, beyond unshakable

Even if we all forgot, all at the same time

If we forget at the same time


[Chorus 3]

To my boy, my precious, gentle warrior

To your sweetness and your strength in exploring

May this bond stay with you through all your days

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze


[Chorus 2]

To my girl, all your innocence and fire

When you reach out, I am here hell or high water

This nest is never going away

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze


[Outro]

To my boy

(First thing that you'll notice is that everything is temporary)

To my girl

(Next that you might know is that we will always be a family)

To my boy

(My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze)
