Enkelejda Pashaj Murataj, ALBANIA


I'm not afraid to see the wrinkles of the time
not once ...
nor now ...
I was colliding between the waves
... and today, ... a portrait of eclipsed blue crystal.
I took the most beautiful lighthouse
I never broke the nest
the rod for your old age
... and the handkerchief for tears of children in the world.
An overview to see every day in the eye,
for the streets and traces of lost stars
for the remaining mortal pain there,
for life …,
and the peace of crossroads people. 


Lay my head
on mother's shoulder
to feel the weight of life.
Lay my head
to the mother's heart
to feel the rhythm of life.
Lay my head
on mother's lap
the odor of life to feel
I kiss her on forehead
to feel the spirit of life.

(Dedicated to all those women who face and win the battle with cancer)

the invincible demon of my body.
always life-destroying, confusion.
Black spider
of scary nets pain
.. and sorrows groan.
Open challenge,
of our days.
and tomorrow awakening.
the last wound of my soul.
for me,
for us,
a name more in death statistics,
beautiful life triumphs over death!
