Sha’an d’Anthes

Today I woke up and warmed up my heart

What I have is so big

That has already been lost,

I think there’s nothing

But love is the most.

_

I barely know how to rhyme,

I barely know that life strings

As an instrument

When I consent

And my spirit lives.

_

Today I felt so confused

I felt everything was ruined

That I have to force myself to stay.

But, to recognize weakness,

Is to embrace yourself.

_

I feel this warmth,

As I empty my mind,

As I swim according to the tide.

_

It’s not defeat:

It’s to hear your heart

A little bit.

_

It’s time to stop

And finally understand.

It’s time to write

Until the very end.

_

I’ve been underwater

Without seeing properly,

Reality was stolen

From me.

_

Who is the one to blame?

There’s no one to name.

_

Life is to be built

Not to be guilted;

Life is too short

But it’s not limited.

_

And then I remember

Something I’ve read,

Perhaps, happiness:

PERHAPPINESS!* I said.
