I caught you feeling... you stupid...
How dare you feel and where's your brain?
I caught you working... you stupid...
Working all day hard with a level of thinking aligned
I caught you learning, caring, helping around,
Trying to make life sweeter...
Helping a wound fade away
And the memory of that awful day become bearable.
Are you that... stupid, stupid! Why don't you keep it all to yourself?
I caught you having some ideals...!
High and of the brave Angels adored!
You stupid, stupid Child!
How dare you even dream?
How dare you believe and hope and scream and shout out your pain!
How dare you stay!
How dare you fight!
How dare you be what you are
You are not... Stupid... Stupid...
The heart that ruined all that!
How dare you be strong?
You did it all at some level but wanted much more!
How dare you be only a human?
How dare you be much more?
You got all tired of this... Stupid... Stupid...
And walked away.
How dare you be that strong?
How dare I admire you?
Heart and Soul taken to a ride by the Mind!
How dare you walk away?
Stupid thing... no! Lie!
Image on a surface
To remind us all
I caught you enjoying life. Well that's stupid!
Again, you will get hurt, you stupid stupid thing.
I caught you thinking... are you that stupid...?
When will you learn to act? React.
Why don't you angel for us and fly?
Show those wings that can carry the world to a better...
'You stupid? Why don' t you Angel inside?
Without feelings, without thinking, without?... Only a cold machine, smart!
Ah, I can finally breathe in and out!
This is a strange perhaps but still a stand against violence we sometimes apply... out of discouragement, out of resources, out of some filth imposed we keep looking for ways out. Why do we do this? Why do we keep taking and taking and giving... ? Our hearts need to be out there, telling their stories, their joy and suffering, their truth and their faults, their lies and their one day found news...
