My Poetry in English


My journey

My troublesome journey

is full of vague colors.

Redressed in solitary anxiety

my heart has difficulty

because it recognizes

no one can give him

what he is searching for.


My journey is invaded by

nocturnal darkness

where light is lacking

and gradually

disappears and in me

only sighs remain.


Where will this journey lead me?


Oh, Celestial Mother

provide only a spark

of light and hope

as a symbol of your existence!
