Mariupol

Have you seen the ocean?

Today is my strength 

My fragility 

Have you seen his impetuous waters?

Submerge the cities

Now invisible 

 

Have you seen

The ocean?

Have you seen his waves

Saving us

And have you seen the ocean

Now inside now outside us

Swallowing 

This love

And returning it

Now stronger 

Now more fragile 

 

Have you seen the ocean?

It is so real so an illusion so me and you

It is this love

That nourishes us

So strong

So fragile


And now 
amore 
let's collect this grain
and let's transform it in bread
for our soldiers

And let's pray the angels of the ocean  
to end the hate among people

It is midnight in New York
