O bucata de creta colorata

Nu-mi lasa lacrimile sa cada. Prinde-le si pastreaza-le pentru ca pamantul arid le va absorbi imediat ce vor cadea. Pastreaza-le pana cand voi avea nevoie de ele iarasi. Si punele in cutiuta aurie de pe marginea raftului din mintea ta. Doar acolo vor fi in siguranta.

Doar cand sufletul iti va fi gol si mintea pustie doar atunci vei putea judeca limpede si vei putea intelege. Doar atunci va inflori gradina de la capatul timpului.

Asteapta pana cand gheata groasa va crapa. Si inregistreaza sunetele provocate de acel dezghet. O sa ai initial senzatia ca e o vioara dezacordata, dar dupa un timp vei stii ca de fapt sunt cele mai frumoase armonii.

Am ales creta colorata din cutie. Asfaltul cred ca va fi asemeni unei placi fotografice impresionate de lumina.

Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss

Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?
How much can you lose? How much can you win?

And IF you go in, should you turn left or right...
or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?
Or go around back and sneak in from behind?
Simple it's not, I'm afraid you will find,
for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

You can get so confused
that you'll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place...

...for people just waiting.
Waiting for a train to go
or a bus to come, or a plane to go
or the mail to come, or the rain to go
or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow
or the waiting around for a Yes or No
or waiting for their hair to grow.
Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite
or waiting for the wind to fly a kite
or waiting around for Friday night
or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake
or a pot to boil, or a Better Break
or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants
or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.
Everyone is just waiting.


Oh, the places you'll go! There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.
And the magical things you can do with that ball
will make you the winning-est winner of all.
Fame! You'll be as famous as famous can be,
with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

Except when they don't
Because, sometimes they won't.

I'm afraid that some times
you'll play lonely games too.
Games you can't win
'cause you'll play against you.

All Alone!
Whether you like it or not,
Alone will be something
you'll be quite a lot.
