You can

trilingual text: english, italian and romanian

Your heart is a stray snail on asphalt
Your steps are trapped in a web of thoughts
As if a dial of a defect clock hold you hostage
Not dare you to open your eyes, to breathe through both nostrils,
To lay hands on and take your slice of the facts and as to fulfill them
With natural humility
Until the fear of death will announce you that exist a ,,too late,,
That actually means just a start for you …because you can do everything…


Tu puoi…
Il tuo cuore è una lumaca randagia sull’asfalto
I tuoi passi sono catturati in una ragnatela di pensieri
Come se un quadrante di un orologio difetto ti tiene in ostaggio
Non hai il coraggio di aprire gli occhi, di respirare con entrambe le narici,
imporre le mani e prendere la tua fetta di fatti e partire per adempierle
con naturale umiltà
fino a che la paura di morte ti annuncia che esiste quel troppo tardi
che in realtà significa soltanto un inizio perché tu… puoi fare qualsiasi cosa…


Tu poți…
ți-e inima un melc rătăcit pe asfalt
pașii tăi prinși în pânza de păianjen a gândurilor
ca și cum cadranul unui ceas defect te ține ostatec
nu îndrăznești să deschizi ochii, să respiri cu amândouă nările,
să întinzi mâinile și să îți iei cota de fapte și să o împlinești
cu firească smerenie
până ce spaima morții te anunță că acel prea târziu chiar există
dar înseamnă de fapt, doar un început, tocmai pentru că… tu poți orice…

  2. Very inspiring! Yes, if we set our heart to anything we an do everything. Nothing is beyond the imagination.


  3. ‘…a stray snail on asphalt…’ Wow! What a wonderful and rich image, Valeriu. Lovely post! Ali x


  4. Yes, bound in hurt and paralyzed by fear, we merely exist and call it a living. Not until we become conscious of the passing of time do we gather or wits to risk really living!


  5. Love the snail pic! Did you took the picture?


  6. I love this! I believe we can do many things we are not aware just because we are afraid of trying. I really like the picture of the snail, it shows us that even it’s so small it never stops from going and trying new roads. This is a lesson for us to keep trying and going very far in this life 🙂


  7. Reblogged this on Roads to Nowhere.
