a kettle in an open flame
half filled with water
i laid my eyes on it
and saw scratches of the past
walled with some grains of rust
like the knights of an era
who encircled a palace
and defended it triumphantly
against the foes of fire

as the water boiled
loud bubbles cried
to be freed from internal heat
and into my cup
filled with coffee, sugar and cream

a little swirling with a spoon
brown pool of liquid
into my system
down into the sea of troubled mass
gave some satisfaction to the body …

Toughness…

________________


sweat dripping on the thirsty ground
is water that came from humans
physical activity and temperatures around
yielded the physical toughness of man


everyone’s life has its ups and downs
managed our responses reacted to rebound
but each time we face our fears, worries and doubts
we find ourselves giving up then turn around


our ability to execute an action
at a level that’s always paired with caution
the unwavering will to ultimately win
is mental toughness, a skill, a discipline

i’d like to see you bouncing from earth to moon
caressing me to start a lightning to boooom
to have my own ticket to reach the sky
is to give you the chance to see my lovely smile

from darkness i pass a lonely passageway
guessing which route to avert a possible stray
followed a glittering light guiding me beside
my shadow is my friend escorting me with pride

i hear the sounds of trouble in front and at the rear
but i won’t give a chance to awaken hints of fear
i won’t wait myself to wilt inside a tough cocoon
sand dune is the place for a head-on collision

hear me, oh lovely moon of the peaceful night
among the races, spread your bright light far and wide
i can see you up there, it’s also seen by black and white
this is our earth, you’re our moon, we don’t have to fight


land, water and air are here we all own
leaders of countries, lead for peace, make it known
share what you have for all humanities to survive
like the busy bees living and sharing a beehive
