Purple


A purple cat perhaps

can stand

For whatever differences

We may represent

In this ecological

Diverse

world.

Our uniquenesses

our ideas

and battles

Often speak louder

Than our loudest

Repeated words.

Not easy to live

In a society where

So many speak

But so few say anything

That is worth 

listening.

Colors yell.

They Play

They Whisper

while screaming,

secretly

what they really

want to 

Show.

Even the simplest

And most naive

Purple

Painted cat

Can

Some times

Say: odd is good.

Our differences makes us special

Lovable

Beautiful.

Magical.

free

Empathy for these differences

Makes us better

And allows us

To exist

In a better

Kinder

Softer 

possible world.

Expression

20120724-095844.jpg

Do not take for granted
My need for expression
My voice was taken away too many times
My eyes were shut down when I craved most to see
But then I listened to the wind and felt the grass beneath my feet
I saw and sensed colours that spoke so loud and clear
That I understood it all and came to peace
Words can be empty and action is often over rated
My heart and soul can say much more
Through brushes and paint
Than through struggle and tears.

……………………………

Não subestime
Minha necessidade de expessão
Minha voz me foi tirada por muitas vezes
Meus olhos foram fechados quando eu mais precisei ver
Mas ai eu ouvi o vento e senti a grama sob meus pés
Eu vi e senti cores que falavam tão alto e claro
Que eu finalmente entendi e senti paz
Palavras podem ser vazias e ação é geralmente desnecessária
Meu coração e minha alma podem dizer muito mais
Através de pincel e tinta
Do que por força e lágrimas.
