Start Now

by Samuel Thorn
(Pastos Bons, Maranhão, Brazil)

I like to listen and meditate
To understand my environment
I like to sit and talk
With those around me

We need to embrace more
In this world of little love
We need to destroy that distance
That technology has created

We need to start talking less
And start a great action
Words alone will not bring
Light for this generation

It is necessary for everyone to feel the pain
Caused by loneliness?
I don't think so.
Let's all help each other
