Where do you go when you are feeling blue?Does anyone care about you?Who do you have when you need a hug?Do you sometimes feel like a real slug?What if tomorrow never comes?And the days are all the same?Close your eyesNo more sentences and liesTake a deep breathYour whole body needs a restAnd your soul tooYourLire la suite « Stardust »

Strolling around

I miss travelingI miss taking the plane, the train or even the subwayI miss my family and friends around the worldI miss my freedomMy wings have not been cut off yetSo I might be strolling around more often. Filipa Moreira da Cruz Photos : Filipa Moreira da Cruz
