I am not this one who falls
I am this one who's up and sees me fallen
I am not this one who cries
but the one who doesn't understand why I cry
This woman who madly loves isn't me
but the one who feels sorry for I madly love
Certainly, I am not this me 
who has a mother and a father
These parents of mine aren't mine
This one who writes is not me
I'm who doesn't get the utility I give to words
for I don't use words, 
I as my opposite
don't want to be understood
I want to listen to no one
I have nothing to say
and I really only love the real me

I am this one who keeps standing
while I fall.

Patrícia Evans
