She didn’t even give a sign of hesitation,
a sign when they asked her
her free, true, and definitive will
found, herself once more,
didn’t even give a sign.
She (when they asked her),
free, true, and definitive.
Since her birth she didn’t even give
a sign of hesitation,
her true will since her birth,
her definitive will.
— a poem I wrote based on a sentence from The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother, by Gabriel García Márquez
