  • Today the old housekeeper from Argentina said to me:
    You are young. You have all your life to live.

    What if it’s true?
    What if I can open my arms, close my eyes and walk alone?
    What if I start to make steps without fearing the unknown?
    What if some of my dreams are really close, ready to be done?
    What if I begin to trust what I still cannot see?

    Like a tree that loses his ripe fruits on the floor,
    Old ghost, go home,
    go back where you come from.
