TO DREAM…

I abandon the body …
I closed the door and moved on …

In this world, everything is born and dies crooked …

I saw a falling star fall …
Ephemeral glow …
A little later it gone !
So is our earthly passage …
What is the use of hatred and war?
If happiness comes from love !
Only those who loved …
Know the difference between joy and pain …

In this life,there are people very bad …
Which fosters discord and disunity …
Fight, defame and invent…
Because of a simple crust of bread …

Envy, opens up gaps …
In jealous hearts …
They are “negrais” as brooms …
But they do not bloom in May …
And when they bloom …
They come with the chalice full of gall and hemlock …
The unwary, thinking it’s honey …
Drink and dig the grave …

For today I’ve seen too many misfortunes …
What the damn world is this?

I turn around …
I put the key, I open the door …
I go to my room … I open the bed …
I enter in my body …
And I fall asleep in the valley of sheets …
I am tired of all this plot !
I want to rest and dream …
With my beautiful sunsets !

WHICHEVER !

How can anyone be happy …
Learning to ignore whichever?!

How can someone
To Learn to ignore
That which castrates?!
That which hurts?

How can someone
Look around …
And to learn to ignore
Such calamity …
So much suffering?!

Closing the eyes …
And repeating to ourselves…
I do not care ?!
Screw them ?!

Can you live
With generated inner conflict ?!
If you can …
Than, there is no inner conflict !

Because you have no conscience !!

I can not close my eyes …
Learning to ignore, whichever !
Because i do not want to learn it !

But I really want to be happy!
