You live
You have fun
You try
You love
You run
You wave goodbye

You fall
You breathe
You change
You remain
You forgive
You say it all

You learn
You get old
You cry
You keep the faith
You burn
You die.

Happy birthday… to me!

45 years of ups and downs
The Earth keeps turning around
Friends and family are my rock
And they know what I’m made of
I’m grateful for all I have
Moving forward step by step
Joyful days, blissful nights
I keep chasing my own lights
Every detail is a poem
In a perfect tandem
Sometimes things don’t work out
That’s what life is all about
Meanwhile, l shall have fun
Because yesterday is already gone
Happy birthday to me
Living wild and free!

I laugh at the way some people think graffiti is all selfish tagging and vandalism. Thoughtful street art is like good fiction – it speaks out on behalf of everyone, for us all to see.

On my way home

Photo : Filipa Moreira da Cruz

On my way home I’m on demand
I see the rainbow in the sky
The red crab is dancing
In the golden sand

On my way home I have time
To enjoy the beautiful landscape
And I cannot believe
Mother nature has blessed me

On my way home I just breathe
The salted water on my hair
The seaweed cracking below my feet
The sky changes in a blink

On my way home I forget my pain
My eyes are craving for a miracle
Suddenly, the bush of the old tree
Is waving me again

On my way home I feel free.
