Che cosa? /what

cosa andiamo cercando
che non sia già dentro di noi
cosa andiamo farneticando
che non sia già stato detto
distinguo i colori
distinguo i sapori
capisco gli umori
accetto la verità
apprendo le novità
ma non mi basta
voglio crescere
ma non mi basta
voglio costruire la
mia realtà

What we are looking for
that is it's not already in us
what we go blustering
that it has not already been said
i dishern colors
i dishern the flavors
I understand the moods
i accept the truth
I learn new stuff
but it's not enough for me
I want to grow
but it's not enough for me
I want to build
my reality

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
