Sad Heart - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

a) -From the start, talking
with sad and pensive heart
talking to myself
I wandered through the leafy
Autumn was coming.
Before me stretched a road
Of trees and flowers.
b) -one by one
the hopes fading
but then
you must not take
the fundamental human rights
must not rip them.
c) -talk in depth
several thoughts
wandering in a maze
they self-make
they make philosophy
puzzle their brains
furrow their brows
to understand the depth
the shape
the size
and all
all ofthe philosophy
before them.
c) -thus I am.
To hide from myself I
I do the same attempt
To thoughts that
Crowd on me.
I fail.
Thoughts won.
d) -against the ticking
I go waiting
I heard a whispering:
The plotters and conspirators
Forged a cruel destiny.
Said I: ‘ I always
Calculated that'
‘Then go to the guillotine
With a bent head'
e) -the enervating thoughts
lie bare before me
the tents on the plain
of the salty brain
lie stretched all over
tiny and radiating.
My beard grows
All suddenly
