Treasure Island

Jonas Goncalves


Birds


I once heard a scream
from inside me.
So I opened my heart to the world,
in order to silence it,
but the world wasn't enough.

It sounds like celestial
but it's just natural.

I once missed places
where I have never been.
So I closed my eyes,
in order to forget them,
but forgetting wasn't enough.

It sounds like an anthem
but that's not what I imagine.

I once got bored
with all the city's noises.
So I ran into the woods,
in order to find satisfaction,
but isolation wasn't enough.

It sounds like the sea
but it travels slowly.

I once heard the birds
and I decided to follow them.
So I chose to love unconcernedly,
in order to retrieve my humanity,
but not even love was enough.

It sounds like peace
but that's not what it brings.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
