Creep in the bitterness of darkness
Slyly with no sound ...
Walk through my misery,
Roam all over the ground …

Forgive the simple words I use
To tell about a mighty like light
Its beauty in its cruelty
I may come now to abuse …

It’s only us ,
You in the sky and me down here
It’s only us …
Though billions of people talk and gossip
The tranquility we enjoy they try to tear …

But …
Though they are so many
Though they pour on you ,
The sweaty, baby, honey
Listen to me rude but true
Listen to me ….
Not to them nice but fake
Listen as if I am the only one with you !

Pity me
Pity me for the life I live
But give me nothing , but please forgive !!

You may be so far
May be so high
But you look no down at me…
You admire cz I always try
To change what I am,
What we are !

In my room
Your light is the only trace for you …
In my room
Your might , your existence I write
As if for the first time …so new

Me : these walls are my borders
Moon : no borders are really there
-these words are obligatory ; orders
- these words are motives , more than anytime they were…

Me : those smiles are beyond my reach
Those breaths I can no longer breathe
Moon : you talk out of outrage and out of rebelliousness
I talk out of neglect I tasted ,out of carelessness
I talk out of these walls
I talk and yes to do so , I’ve got balls …
I talk from behind my borders
From behind the rules
The discipline by tools
Mute , reality and routine
Set by our society
The society of complications , of fools …
They embed our creation
They obscure my power
They flame the fire,
And the latter never cools …!!

So tell me what fun do I know .
I will do before you…
It’s the fun no one ever knew ,
The fun so meager
Nearly negligible …
The excitement when I am eager
For these damn rules,
Could be decipherable …

No I have not done a crime ,
Nor stole a house nor a mine !!
No I haven’t killed someone
Of matter you feel
But I killed the one that used to push the wheel
I killed the motivation , I killed the elation …
Not by gun , not by knife !!
By silencing and limiting ,
The will to nacked myself of all masks I come to peal …

But they murdered my life
So I murdered myself !!
I never wanted to be the rock
I always wanted to be the fish
Passing by smirking at the moss so still and stuck …

They took away the air
They told me how to smile hiding my teeth !
How to laugh with no sound
And how to live without a need to breathe !!

They set the laws
They said : worship who and where !
They ended up mixing between GOD and my toes
That is between the divine and their laws ; their hoes !!

A manual , they’ve adopted ,
A monotony cherished and never interrupted …
More than you can imagine
Those outrages they do to youth …
More than a mind can take
And a heart bears !!
They covered its faces by white cloth …

More than those stars beside you
More than the endless meters
Are the nights I cried before sleep…
Are the days I dreamed of my new self
And animated its new features !!

Now comes the crucial ,
Comes the big deal .
The reason for blood shot eyes
For hands so numb , with no feel,
For scars and bruzes we got climbing those walls ,
For the always open wounds of no heal …!

But at the bottom comes ,
The cause simpler than you think !
Faster than a blink!
Chains of iron ,
A whirl of wind as it hums …
The tactful arms ,
The love and tender
The beauty and courtesy
The ambitions they hinder
A girl they simply murder
For being a girl with no defender !!
