A Poem by 外人 (Gaijin)
"

Hope you like it, this one means a lot to me :)

"
Encontro-me no crepuscolo
Dos meus sofrimentos
A contemplar com gratidao
O infinito das vitorias.

Assisto ao amanhecer
Dos meus sonhos que
Em energicos raios
Realizo por contacto.

E as estrelas brilham
Como um cosmico memento
Das linhas de chegada
Que pretendo cortar.


TRANSLATION
Title: London

I find myself at the twilight
Of my suffering
Beholding with thankfulness
The infinite of the victories.

I witness the dawn
Of my dreams that
In energetic rays
I achieve by contact.

And the stars shine
As a cosmic reminder
Of the finish lines
That I aim to cut.

Author's Note

外人 (Gaijin)
Originally written in Portuguese. I confess I feel a little shaky on this translation, it was not easy !
I wrote this poem after living a month in London, it represented how I felt towards this city at that time ... It keeps perfectly representing my sentiments towards it now, months later.
