by the sea

Cross the Atlantic Ocean in week
You win the immortality,
Look at the moon by crying,
Nobody speaks about your tears.

Win the European champions league
The whole world is interested in you,
Walk on the pont du Gard
By contemplating the Roman Empire,
Nobody will share your emotion.

The adulators are cicadas,
Be famous as you are,
Ignore the criticisms of newspapers,
That they love you or hate you

The song of the media is the siren song.

wow... reading this was interesting... it's different from whatever I've read...

Heaven is not that place where you go when you die... it's that time in your life when you actually feel ALIVE!!!

Once again, very excellent writing. I like the part about the cicadas.

Interesting . . . To say the least.

To mimic is a form of praise unless
you have no thoughts of your own
