Word that leads to the peace of mind

Enters the sanctuaries of paradise with an unknown destination

What can I tell you,

to convince you

to take care of your existence

do not fly to cloudy horizons

You have the anointing of humility

And if your light ever goes out, do not be afraid

You have the magic inside you

The wisdom of the Lord

The vibration of his transmissibility

Primitive collective memory is intertwined with the infinite inspiration of the multidimensional human

which, irreconcilable by nature, navigate his endless course.



You are leaving…

You seduce the moons of the mind

and leave

You enlist warriors of silence

You afflict

The sun is engulfed in your flames

Become incandescent.

They fight themselves,

their greatest enemy

Subconsciously open the step

wanting to learn…

The shroud they wore

cannot stand it

They will fight

until they feel strong again



And then they will not pronounce

words of despair, but of joy

Their limbs will not hurt

as if flogged by Lernaean Hydra

Will proceed with erect bodies

Unknown the course,

sure the destination: The Immortality…


In Another Life

Maybe someday

meet the light that will glow in the dark

That will heal our wounds

will enchant the hearts

Maybe we will find the courage

to educate our mistakes,

to apologize

to break down the walls of existence

To joke carefree in the heavenly gardens

Those we forgot, we withered

Watering with tears…

Knitting thorn wreaths

Those we buried prematurely
