no amen no name


If a certain point of view, 
set of values, 
fixed idea, 
prevents (you) 
from seeing a fellow human being as a 
human being 
(also wishing to be happy, suffering and so on), 
but only as an enemy, 
then please read the following quotation:


“Here is the true meaning and value of compassion and nonviolence, when it helps us to see the enemy’s point of view, to hear his questions, to know his assessment of ourselves. For from his view we may indeed see the basic weaknesses of our own condition, and if we are mature, we may learn and grow and profit from the wisdom of the brothers who are called the opposition.”

– Martin Luther King


So many names out there we're staying home.

Our hearts might melt in the sun
And grow as holders of nests
We can't carry yet.



Let's get out
Let’s get out.


Walking through 
Trough solitude

You take me in your arms
To share our loneliness together
You, a poet
I, a nothing
Both wanderers
In a foreign skyscraper's land
We say: Hey!
Feel the tropical buzz
In these dirty streets
Things are going to change
Like white doves
Over your shoulder 
Turn pink
Needing love
Needing blood
Needing knowledge
From a black wo/man
