Thus spoke Tochihuitzin,
thus spoke Coyolchiuhqui:
We only rise from sleep,
we only come to dream.
It is not true, it is not true,
that we come to Earth to live.
Our nature
is that of an herb in springtime.
Our hearts give birth, they make
the flowers of our flesh sprout.
Some blossom
only to wither and die.
Thus spoke Tochihuitzin,
thus spoke Coyolchiuhqui.

– Tochihuitzin Coyolchiuhqui. Zan Tontemiquico
