“If only the peace I feel right now
could be stored up and released later
when cruelty surrounds me
in the dark
during nightmares.”
Margarita Engle, Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba

“I feel the heaviness of nightmares
even though I am awake.

How weary I am, how sleepless
and hopeless—there is no escape
from the torment
of wishes.”
Margarita Engle, Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba

“I will never understand
the whole world

or even
one country.

All I can do
is try to understand
the truth and lies
in the simplest choices
I face
every day.”
Margarita Engle, Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba
