SOUL PERFORMANCE




You've always known that here

Is not for long and yet

I wanted you to be my dream, my goodnight,

to be my pain and my savor,

The poison and the antidote,

the present along with the before.

I see you all these years

Struggling with an emptiness

That overtakes your ideals,

Crying with a word that always

Stays stuck on your lips

Hitting greedily the wind with your hands.

In this chaos you, the weakest light,

Shine inside this abyss of gold,

Climbing the stares of life.

The last one will teach you how to love

And this will be your most difficult step.

This step will get you to the top,

Where you can look from above

This performance in which

We all thought we owned the leading role
