The New World


I kept the hopes all, in my soul,

and their hearts beat I recruited

in the submission of my spirit.

History’s root alive me

and the continuation of the human race

that I fell madly in love with life,

I entered the fight and fought.

For the good of the Manhood I have suffered,

for the soul the indestructible continuity,

for the mind the eternal evolution,

I was in pain as if I saw all the ruins around me.

I rose through the ashes,

with faith and strength I was armed

and I set out for new conquests,

to resurrect what was left dead,

to give back the first form

in Life, in Man, in Hope.

At the light of Dawn, the beginning is born

for a new, better world,

full of harmony and consensus.





I want to write a ballad and say

for my loves, my bitterness, my dreams,

to unfold what I feel in my heart,

what I suffered and what I love.



On this night when my soul is tormented,

that my shield is tormented by lightning,

and with all his passion I accept thunder,

and a hope is no longer with me…


How to endure a world that beats me,

which enslaves both my mind and soul,

which deprives me and kills my life

and from the cliff into the abyss brings me…



Without Knowing


The moments pass, the times pass…

What does life offer us, what does it offer us?

Times leave us alone.

Who knows day by day what it will bring…


The book of our lives opens

and closes with full pages.

Violence, hatred, evil, injustice

and all the evils that exist and you did not see…

Life goes on and you do not mind,

because you have been judged to suffer.

And they beat you until one day you die

for a reason you did not learn… you do not know…




Killed Dreams


How they killed my dreams one day,

how they drowned my thoughts in blood!

I told the truth and they only lied

and received my unfortunate heart.


Handcuffs went through my mind,

they crippled my every vision

and watered the blood in my heart

as they demanded my loss.


Now in this wilderness where life dies

and my dream fades away,

I feel the soul leave alone, bitter,

I have nothing else to look forward to…
