what they didn’t see

  • 8

i believe that i finally realised

how much and to which extent

people have always idealized

what things actually represent

do you remember this one kid

coming to school with crutches

he was to be found in the mid

of talks, touches and clutches

willing to give away his canes

to all the classmates lining up

to walk within his daily chains

as if it was a special sort of cup

by looking at all these faces

he managed to escape reality

because they were like traces

of himself one day being free

but when the kids left school

running to catch the bus that

would drop them at the pool

he was left with his heavy bag

knowing that shortly to walk

in other shoes is coexistence

as to fully understand a path

measured should be distance
