Where to hide

Where to hide

A Poem by Nico

there are moments
I think that innocence
doesn't exist anymore

 

I can't adjust myself
to this reality
I can't bear the images
of violence and cruelty.

 

now I know
the useless war
between two civilizations
doesn't have an alibi
even praying seems
to be heresy nowadays
in these days
of ordinary foolery.

 

where do angels hide
when at times people
fall on earth
innocent and guilty victims
of a false truth
in a world that
no longer knows peace.

 

there are moments
I'm wondering why
indifference and normality
don't create tears anymore.

 

now I know
I don't believe the promises
of the former merchants anymore
and even an idea is utopia
in these days
of ordinary foolery.

 

where do angels hide
when at times people
fall on earth
there are no skies anymore
clear skies
I don't know if
this age that doesn't
know peace will heal.

 

and I will protect
life for you
you will grow
and I will change all
the dreams you have.

 

there are no clear skies anymore
but there is something
beyond these clouds......
