LEARN TO LOVE WOUNDS
Continue the story In the folds of time In the days in the rain Even in storms Incessantly goes on Nothing stops it Imposing creates emptiness. The voice Without his words, it is never tied to the roots neither is the mouth When he sings the songs with his cries human life in truth. Even more difficult learn to love wounds when the world is bad and feelings and violence they are companions and they live hand in hand engaged in wars. © Francesco Favetta
MOTHERS COURAGE Evening falls in the fields and the wind already calm from the clear sky of black clouds it landed smashing to the ground The leaves yellowed by eternal silences women dripping bitter drops and love torn from the womb. The thousand souls marched proudly clenched fists tied hands serene faces, never dull eyes step firmly in the chest pain of wounded women and humiliated mothers singing the hymn of their only cry They came united in sincere hearts. Crowds cheering open arms welcomed by embracing lives broken by adverse winds voices of freedom and songs of joy the pure souls acclaimed giving the true values and struggles of a thousand battles expected at the crossing of the friendly fraternal paths.

THE SEA OF LIFE It is like the sea stormy emotions stir the stunned thoughts forgotten anchors backdrops still invisible a vast ocean blue to explore, navigate. We are small boats the waves of life they always toast every moment to our adversities shores and hopes They are landings hoped for. Let's sail silently storms the swollen seas Storms and storm surges they sweep like volcanoes the faint memories the tides bring us back Back in time. We smile drowned in the blue marine waters like castaways we breathe life and salt forgetting the acrid taste some blood that flows in the sea of life. © Francesco Favetta
APPRENTICE IN THE HEART !
I could write of my thoughts dig into my body every day the rough stone smoothing the roughness impurities. Inside a long night like a flower to be plucked slips on the walls of life this little man apprentice in the heart warrior in blood.
