Yesterday, today, tomorrow

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

Bil Keane

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Find your own way!

Many are stubborn in pursuit of the path they have chosen, few in pursuit of the goal.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Adversity is the first path to truth.

Lord Byron

The straight line, a respectable optical illusion which ruins many a man.

Victor Hugo

Travelers, there is no path, paths are made by walking.

Immortality

Reprise

Death will never tear us apart
You belong to that special category
You are everywhere
Your voice is in my mind
Always
Your wise advice are dancing in my brain
Faultless
Your sweet hug keeps me company
All the time
Memories will be my best friend
No matter what
Your body is weak and shrunken
It’s OK
One day, the pain will slide away
Forever
But our love will remain
For Eternity
Why would you need a cracked body
If you already have the most important?
A beautiful clear soul
And remember, yours is immortal.

Obstacles

Reprise

I knew the bad news was lurking, but I decided to go straight ahead
I avoided the sharp corners
Firmly
Without any notice, the pebble turned into a boulder
And I can no longer kick it and move on
Sooner or later I have to face reality
I have my fingers crossed
Always
Until then, let’s party!

Game over

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.

Ode to my Mother

Reprise

You are the roots of the most beautiful tree
The branches and the fallen leaves too
Your inconditional love
Heals our deepest wounds
And your long arms
Wrap us in an endless hug
Beyond distance and time
You go through harsh winters
Always with a smile
And hot summers
Are way less brighter
Than your inner light
That keeps shining
No matter what.

Orange is the new black

Reprise

Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.

Wassily Kandinsky

Don’t turn your back away
Don’t push me too hard
Just to see how far I’ll go
I’m still learning to cope
With my hopes and fears
And it’s not easy…
So I dress my brain in orange
To hide the inner darkness
I cover my life with this colour
I accept what others reject
And guess what?
It works out just fine
It cheers me up, finally.
