I want to live


I want to live:
to make up with the butterflies
and wander for hours in the fields
to help the farmers plant seeds of hope.

I want to live:
to listen
to the raindrops
as they baptize the grass and trees...

I want to negotiate
the birds
regarding their wings
and the lutes
regarding their strings...

I want to fly
higher than seagulls...
I want to sing
better than nightingales.

I want to write about
the tears in the eyes,
and as the prophets
of old times,
I want to call for peace
among people.

Many, many things I dream of doing,
but, the sound of the distant explosions
distorts all my dreams!
