1

They expelled me from heaven.

They also closed the gates of hell.

Oh, what a misfortune!

I must return to earth!

 

2

My prisons grew bigger day by day,

First, my mother’s belly,

Then

The cradles and cuddles,

The ghosts of the walls,

Now, the world!

 

3

People are dangerous.

Even in photos!

 

4

There’s a pandemic,

Our humanity is sick.

 

5

At sea

We lost our way.

On land too

We see nothing,

Without losing our way!

 

6

I hate heaven.

There are people there too.

 

7

In this jungle

We are all lost.

Death finds us one by one.

 

8

I need a dozen shoes

To escape from this illness

As far as I can.

I need thousands of way’s excuses.

To mend my shoes!

 

9

In this borderless universe

There are limits to everything

Except my madness and the meaningless of existence!

 

10

A deep space lies between my soul and my body,

I am loading it with days, weeks, and years.

It becomes wider and wider!

 

11

I am pessimistic,

With my optimism.

 

12

I need two healthy ears,

For silence.

 

13

The Earth is an open grave,

With a chain and handcuffs

We live, and we die in it.

 

14

Walls have ears,

And doors are blind.

 

15

Houses

With no one crying in them

Do not need doors.

 

16

We are lucky,

Our graves have no doors.
