The Silences Of Time


It's not over yet

beauty is in life

in the silences of time

dressed in Peace and Love

resurrected every hour

from human violence.

We are lives lived

in this crazy time

inside the prisons of the world

chained to fears

dazed with terror

we are destinies without routes.

The truths fly

they look like confetti

carried by the wind

swept away by indifference

and go to die in the desert

where flowers are rare jewels.

There Will Be No One Left


Who will stay

after the storm


shipwrecked and missing

in the raging sea

of human complacency

in everyday violence

in the fences of the world.

And then again

the wars

the divisions

invisible borders

and the truths torn apart


Will remain

the blood spilled

from the innocents

and dirty hands

and smelling of death

of criminals

evil humans

sitting in the benches.

Long strides!


One by one

i will tear up every day

invisible rings

of the chains that oppress

and keep the man in prison

to make a necklace

to wear around the neck.

Long strides

they will blaze solid paths

on safe and unusual paths

where human foot

does not dare to set footsteps

on hard rock

on values and freedoms.
