Paradise is inside us

We need love

We need kindness

We need dreams

We need happiness

We are humans

I love humans

I decided to see the best version of them


More you see good

More the good is coming out


We need more poems

We need more storytellers

We need more Angels



Be gentle

Believe and do good

Paradise is inside us


Hope for peace

(Syria, Iraq Armenia)

We pray as Jews

We pray as Christians

We pray as Muslims

If all those prayers were one

Nobody needed the war


We pray as children’s play

We pray as newborn look the sun

We pray as we see the sea for the first time


This think called virus came at night to our bed

Called dark angel try to take our souls

Try to take our dreams

Our existence


We call the source above

We pray to the Holy Spirit


The darkness came above our houses

The grey cloud near the windows

Nobody knew his name

They call it the Son of Krown


No bodies

No injuries

No blood

A body start to become

An empty bottle full of air


No breath

No move

Just an empty bottle full of water


We pray as birds sing in the forest

We pray as we travel to the Moon for the first time


We pray to Holy Spirit

Against the Beast

We must fight

And have no fear

No panic


Because at the End

The Angels and Him

Shall rise again.

In a small place

A place we call home

I make a nest with my little hands.


In a small place where the heart beat like a taboure

I make a window to look at the sky


In a small place that no one else can see or know his existence..

I call it my homeland

I build a strong house for my family

I feel safe and I hear the birds singing every morning



They sing to me.


Good morning

My soul sometimes


With passion


People are so far

My soul sometimes

Need affection


My soul for years

Leave with portraits


Portraits of people I love






My soul sometimes

Become so small

Need air

Need hug


My soul sometimes

Is a child

That want to smile


My soul sometimes

Feel the sadness of the whole world


My soul sometimes

Is a bird that wish

To fly high

Travel far

See you

Give you a message….


When surprises keep coming


 Dreams are God’s plans

Dreams are the wishes of the Virgin Mary long live the heroes the goodness of people Dreams are the smiles of the Angels

Dreams are the colors of the rainbow Dreams are your words when they speak to me

Dreams are the love that makes everything strong and full of light …


I need to write a poem

A poem that will serve as peacekeeper

Between the God and Humanity

Between the brothers and sisters

Between myself and my mood


I need to find the verses

Be completely different from the past

And so new to fit in the present


Need to have one truth

Justified and accepted


Need to write a new story

A new book about the life


Every single day is a new discovery

People become evil

Failure earn in so many levels

And love is replaced with food


People are divided

Between those who love the food

Between those who love the humanity


Need to write a poem about the fear

And the dark


But many of stars are shining

So must not afraid of darkness. But definitely need to re organize in our mind what the unknown is like?


People are divided

Between those who love the food

Between those who love the humanity


Is so, difficult to think with the stomach full

People forgot to love and they become

Slaves of their stomach

Little servants of this great stomach

That cannot filter anything


Poetry unites people

Poetry travels faster than the unknown words that remain unborn

In the mind of an author…


Need to write a poem

About the happiness

The smile of the children


The journey that never ends….

Who is the captain of the boat??

Metaphor of hearts

The bird said if you ever decide to love me,

I hope you have two hearts with you to give me one…

 The last one who told me that he loves me so much,

 Deeply entered my old heart,

Made it fall apart and melt away..


Since then, I fly high without a heart with the clouds of the company..


So, if you love me

Keep that in mind

 I’ll need a heart… a loan heart…


Dear Soul

Close your eyes

Let your soul free

Open your heart to me


Hope I am the shoulder

You will cry

The eyes to see you’re good and bad


Life is full of small miracles

U are this miracle for me


Let your sorrow

Embrace your mistake

People come and go


Hearts and soul

Are meant to be together

In a moment

Suddenly without asking

Without talking

In a perfect magic moment.


To the unknown man

Long distance relationship

Days you smile

Nights I cry

Days you become silent

I become so communicative


Birds are coming from far lands

Back to their nest

Wondering will you come to our nest

Long distance relationship

My why become so long

Your words are a rainbow

In my rainy moments


Hope the heaven hear my prayers

Soon you are free from unknown chains


Hear my heart beat

Hear my heart voice


More and more

Every day

Every night

Singing for you

My precious man…

Wishing be a star

I could be a wish

No importance if I was big or small star

My wish it depends on the person that make it

Asking for peace and happiness

Wishing be a cloud

A Grey or a white

I could express the feelings of people who cannot speak

Rain day if they are sad

Sun day if they are happy


Wishing be a star


For my father

Death took children and young people Death has always been like that Unfair… do you want to know about death?


 It is slow and painful, does not discriminate, he comes suddenly and takes loved ones like lightning like a thunderbolt like a sharp knife… Keep them deep in your heart


Those who left…

Burn a candle for the soul to see on the dark path, put water near the candle to quench the thirst of the soul A pray, God forbid you say … God hears and acts!!


In my deepest fears

Alone I walk….
