I am not worried about my future days.
You will probably point me out as reckless, defiant,
by challenging what we cannot predict or guess.
The fact is that I learned a lot from the sadness
and disappointment I have had, really so many,
but not enough to overwhelm me.
I hope I still have many pleasures in my future,
like or better as I have had,
even if some of them are the ones that,
later, turn out to be deceptive and fleeting.
I have already learned the modus-operandi of the one
who has been the mentor of my destinies and my ways.
So, I have seasoned my life with the same passions,
thus believing he will not have much to change
and surprise me.
Let my future come soon, I do not fear and will embrace it
with the same faith of past days.
I will fight its frustrations and disagreements, which, by sure,
will appear again.
I will lie down with new pleasures – flames and sweet loves
will spring up.
From time to time,, I will throw to the skies sound and honest a laughter,
and, a little incredulous, the Gods will know that, despite everything,
even if it is for just one,
the human legend is still going on down here.
