Standstill

A little boy in the gardenHe began to run he was a child, in a large green lawn
He rushed to finish the school
Work and love made ​​him a man
Then with the rain came the pain
Suddenly he found himself alone
He kept running, faster than the machines
The wind brought the white hair
He was running even that last night
It was very cold in the large green lawn
He came to a standstill
He didn’t want to be alone anymore
-
Cominciò a correre che era un bambino, in un grande prato verde
Finì la scuola di corsa
Il lavoro e l’amore lo resero uomo
Poi con la rapida pioggia arrivò il dolore
In un lampo si trovò solo
Continuò a correre, più veloce delle macchine
Il vento gli portò i capelli bianchi
Correva, anche quell’ultima notte
Faceva molto freddo nel grande prato
Si fermò
Non voleva più essere solo

  1. Hello Max. Thank you for your follow. I have really enjoyed your work and I was thinking that if you could capture the essence of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” that would be really nice. I think you could do it.
