I see you there
lost in your silence.
Nature didn΄t endow you
with gifts of life.
That's why you fight  hapless
in the sadness of the silence.
You laugh - who knows why
You talk to the passers
in your glimpse.
What could
comfort you?
Perhaps the prison of mind
extinguishes your dreams…


Our words  silent
move our steps
But an unknown spectator
wraps our wings.
Strength gives plenty
to care the Universe,
to be born again
Our fate in our bowels
desire her birth
to give breath to the life
Love and affection!


I was  a little tired my old man,
I want to have a rest
I suffered from the Circe of the life.
See how we altered
our own language,
the one that with pain and honor
our  ancestors adore
but we led her
to cry in the gallows ...
