Poem | You Can

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.


You Can

To you, that you look at me

reflected such Narcissus in river.

you, living being tired and broken,

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.

I know you can get it.

Let loose the fears that will love you, and flight away.

Embrace your dreams, let those tears run.

come here, and let us weep together

so that you may remember that you are not alone.

to the weakest ash gives birth

the largest of the fire birds.

you can too.

Loose Those fears, they don’t do you good.

trusts me that I am you

that I promise that everything will improve.

Stand up, go on.

wipe that stained face

of hopelessness and sadness.

Wipe those tears

and look me in the eyes.

don’t give up, please.

That what happens to you is a passenger,

Falls are constant

but that’s what life is all about.

Fall and get up again.

I know that the cold Burns

that the darkness starts you

the desire to walk.

But I was there too

and I went out. I know you can too.

Although the wind blows strong

Even if the river stops running and the mountains

fall down.

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.

Winter passes

is not the only season.

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.
