– “The blind man”

When lovers talk to the moon
I know its color is white
Since it ignites their hearts
with the heavenly light
When the wild birds sing
at the awakening of spring
I know that the leafs are green
like an emerald on a ring ..

When the machine of war starts
I can feel the color of blood
I know then it’s red
as bricks in walls changing to mud
And when women cry their men
I know the days are dark
I can sense their sorrow
when their faces turn black ..

My footsteps are slow
but my heart knows how to run
When I hear the call of the needy
I want something to be done
All I want to see in this saddened world
are the colors of peace
To bring the freshness
that makes the fire of war cease ..

I can walk without losing my way
since I follow my heart
Love is my unique trusted guide
in a world falling apart
And when it rains my rainbow shines
with kindness and happiness
Then my rivers of dreams flow,
and I break free from my loneliness ..
