29. I SEEK FOR YOU AND I FOUND YOU

I seek for you and i found you
I search for me and i lost you
Back to the maternal embrace
Back to the nest of growth
To the family reunion
To know new loved family
By authorities facing storms i was named “castaway”
By choosing tropical beaches they told me “the goblin of the coconuts”
By heartbreaker they called me “selfish”
For selfless love i was accepted as a brother.
We come together to the cold
We submit ourselves to the cleaning
To the freezer to override the contamination
To water to hydrate our bodies
“Fear”
I believe that for the first time i am learning about fear
Afraid that won’t let me be with you
Fear that won’t let me let you go
Fear of the end
Some day i’ll accept
I will accept and be able to say: “the end”
