Suffering is a good teacher to those who are quick and willing to learn from it. But it becomes a tyrant to those who resist and resent.

warm as yellow.
and i do not want to be a rose.
i do not wish to be pale pink,
but flower scarlet, flower gold.
and have no thorns to distance me,
but be bright,
bright,
bright, bright as yellow,
warm as yellow.

once i was seven years old, my mama told me,
“go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely.”
once i was seven years old
it was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker

According to Buddha

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

all i can say is that my life is pretty plain
i like watchin’ the puddles gather rain
and all i can do is just pour some tea for two
and speak my point of view but it’s not sane, it’s not sane

According to Buddha

Forget the past, for it is gone from your domain. Forget the future, for it is beyond your reach. Control the present. Live supremely well now. This is the way of the wise…

According to Buddha

One must never give up hope of becoming better. A person is old only when s/he refuses to make the effort to change. That stagnant state is the only “old age” I recognize.

here today the red sky tells his tale
but the only listening eyes are mine
there is peace amongst the hills
and the night will cover all my pride
blessed are they who smile from bodies free
seems to me like any other crowd
who are waiting to be saved

o amarelo da carris
vai da alfama à mouraria
quem diria
vai da baixa ao bairro alto
trepa à graça em sobressalto
sem saber geografia
o amarelo da carris
já teve um avô outrora
que era o xora?
teve um pai americano
foi inglês por muito ano
só é português agora

there is fiction in the space between
the lines on your page of memories
write it down but it doesn’t mean
you’re not just telling stories
there is fiction in the space between
you and me
you and everybody
give us all what we need
give us one more sad sordid story
but in the fiction of the space between
sometimes a lie is the best thing

According to Buddha

Do not confuse understanding with a larger vocabulary. Sacred writings are beneficial in stimulating desire for inward realisation, if one stanza at a time is slowly assimilated. Otherwise, continual intellectual study may result in vanity, false satisfaction, and undigested knowledge.

deixei de mim as frases que trocámos
os beijos e o tédio de os não ter
sem querer nós nos cegámos
sem querermos ver
ss roupas e os livros não os trouxe
que se envelheçam cobertos de pó
por querermos que assim fosse
deixo-te só

go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
when you fall everyone stands
another day and you’ve had your fill of sinking
with the life held in your
hands are shaking cold
these hands are meant to hold
