Where Have You Gone


You have gone

bringing with you

your smiles your laughters

all your joy and extravagances

but also

your fragilities and uncertainties

your sorrow


And left me here

with my sadness

almost a sense of guilt

for not being with you


When children

they used to tell us

those leaving forever

all go up to the sky

and there

I've been looking for you


Flying among the clouds

white like lotus flowers

I wandered with my gaze

through the endless space

while warm tears

streamed down my face


I knew

it wasn't true

what we were told once

but with firm obstinacy

I kept looking for you

while anger and disappointment

went on growing in my chest


Where have you gone?



July, 4


As a man that lives

in an independent country

enjoying liberty and freedom

never forget the peoples

who 'd be in your same condition

Just go back to your Revolution

your struggle against the British

the mothers' cries

of young soldiers died

and all the wooden crosses

remembering their names

So, make sure

to always defend the same rights

for any woman and men

The earth a little ball

seen from the moon

where each one could live their lives

in brotherhood-





My heart bleeding for the pain

that would explode

like fireworks

to light up the skies

of countries and towns

and show they have no boundaries

make visible to the blinded

due to their cruelty and greed

that clouds and stars

don't wave flags and

all men live under the same sky

then cry out

my joy for life

but also my anger

against the powerful

to awaken their conscience


If only i could

stretch out my hands

to caress the children in Gaza

In Syria and

all the countries at war

dry their mothers' tears

share the pains of men

outraged in their souls and bodies

and sing with them hymns of peace
