Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic


if I couldn’t write I would be silent,
condemned to violence in secret
overwhelmed by these feelings without words,
I will dry up like a sea without water,
my life would not be the same,
also true that I could take yours,
I announce that it is corrupted and unlawful in the system
where the moments of happiness are eclipses when they are not ellipses,
so I wrote in the emergency
as if my life depended on the sirens of ambulances,
I wrote by survival instinct,
I'm surprised to write to support life,
I give my being to my letters because writing without soul is just wood without fire
I do not write to forget
I write sometimes so they can never forget the
martyrdom of the brave
I shout when I write I write (I have no choice)
I write when I write I write
if I write it is to put face to face my regrets and my hopes,
alone on stage in front of the people never believe that I feel superior,
if you never see my tears its because they run inside,
there are few uncertainties in my writings,
but if I scratch all these it is that my desire has not lost weight,
I want to believe that in our time people can still listen
I live where there are too many kids that life has already given a blow
I write because I was inspired by events
if there are so many young people in our neighborhoods who decide to fill all these pages,
it may be that life here deserves some testimonials,
I write because I have just a piece of paper and a pen,
know that even the last of dickhead may not need a philosophy diploma to speak
I write to convey especially because I still believe in sharing
the exchange of emotions and a laughter on a face,
then we do try paint the world  in every color

We are just columnists,
a daily paper in black and white you try to color,
but if it does not change the world the world will not change us either
it's in our hearts and pens this sincerity and virtue
