Se eu pudesse trincar a terra toda
O que é preciso é ser-se natural e calmo
Francisco José Viegas, As Imagens
I am a good friend. I’m easily
taken by the hand, and I do what
others ask of me, well and cheerfully.
But my secret soul that does not lie
to itself murmurs its own words.
And sometimes a god calls me and wants
me to listen to him. With the thoughts
that are born in me then, with my heart
beating inside, with the intensity of my pain,
I reject all likeness with other men.
I have this privilege. And I will keep it.
