My Life

Written by: Nelson Herculano

I live a crazy life
When my memory seems to be losing weight
When everything around me seems scary
Like an enemy confronting me with a knife

My life is like a confused sheep 
That is left in the desert
In search of its own family
In order to keep its peace stable and deep

My life is like a toy
Played around by a small child
When my mind is only used
In return with miseries, instead of joy

At last I've found my peace
The sheep have got its family
The toy was threw away by the child, and settled in peace
And recovery remains my hope !
