Me gusta Sofia
esa chica quiere salvar al mundo
habla de libros, del universo
de lo que es real y la ilusión
habla de la iluminación, del amor
habla de la música
habla de la poesía
habla de cómo las palabras
pueden cambiar al mundo
e insiste en que aún quedan chicas
que se enamoran de la esencia
y no de las cosas materiales
me gusta Sofia
la ansiedad le come el alma
está un poco rota, lastimada
de vez en cuando llora
por cosas que nadie más
puede ver y le duelen
puede llorar por el sufrimiento
de la condición humana
o simplemente porque el clima
decidió ponerla sensible
ella es una chica hermosa
pero sabe que su belleza
es sólo una fantasía
que ella es más real que eso
y a su vez, muchos sólo observan
lo que hay afuera
y que por ello no a muchos
le importan sus sentimientos
pero a mí sí me importan
me quiero quedar en ella
