Art transforms, moves you, nourishes you.
That’s what I’ve been able to enjoy in the last few days. I have taken some time to listen to good music, to see an inspiring film and to nourish myself, to move forward.
Inspired convinced in the power of words, I dedicate this humble text, to all those who have been through difficult times. For all who are silent, for those who feel alone and unheard. To all of them goes this poem.
To you, that you look at me

I want you to listen to me.
Know what you’re going through,
I know what it’s feel.
I’ve been there too.
I know the Abyss and its darkness
because they were my abode a while ago.
I got out of there, and I know you can too.

Although the wind blows strong
Even if the river stops running and the mountains
don’t give up.
Embrace your mother,
Take your wife
Look at your children in the eyes
and remember why it is worth fighting for.

Be patient, like that tree
leafless, cold, apparently dead
awaits the patient sun
While it remains strong
feeding with its wise interior
Waiting for spring
to grow again.
