I finally understood... that every day is a life!

24 July 2021, Seytoo
I finally understood... that every day is a life!

I finally understood... Because life itself awaits its moment of truth ...

Darkness that I confuse with shadow,
of the dawn that I take for dawn,
of the smile that I perceive as an invitation,
of my dreams of freedom which are actually a reflection of my loneliness,
distant memories that I go back from the abyss of my childhood,
of my mind that the blacksmith has confused with his hammer,
of my nerves woven from my anguish in steel wire,
billions of human beings who are in reality one whole,
moments where, lost in my thoughts I thought I saw the way,

I finally understood ...
that life is not often what we live every day,
that the sun doesn't just rise to set,
that the stranger's smile could mean more than a smile,
that my spirit is free in its solitude but alone in its freedom,
that my memories have never been so close and so distant,
that the will of my mind could bend the iron without heating it,
that my silence was the rhythm of my silent but present speech,
that every day is a life ...
Because life itself awaits its moment of truth ...
