“The Liberator Simon Bolivar, is the greatest military and political genius of all time. His sword carried the energy of freedom of 5 nations and the defeat of an empire. But one of the lesser-known facets of the prodigal son of Caracas, is that of poet.
In 1822, a triumphant Bolivar, which saw the birth of the Colombia that Miranda dreamt, wrote his poetic work “Mi delirio sobre el Chimborazo” where he looked at the immensity of his achievement, projected into time. Inspired by the mountain of Chimborazo in Ecuador, which at the time was thought to be the highest mountain in the world, he imagined from the top, watching the Independent America, Great and United, going beyond time, beyond the centuries.
We are able to feel in our soul, the delirium of Bolivar, who was nothing but to see our Great Homeland united, free, sovereign, building our destiny in our own hands, the hands of the people, the hands of humble people. We are able to transform that reality delirium; today we have made advances, but we must continue the march “.
