It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.

Speak

Speak, your lips are free.
Speak, it is your own tongue.
Speak, it is your own body.
Speak, your life is still yours.

See how in the blacksmith's shop
The flame burns wild, the iron glows red;
The locks open their jaws,
And every chain begins to break.

Speak, this brief hour is long enough
Before the death of body and tongue:
Speak, 'cause the truth is not dead yet,
Speak, speak, whatever you must speak.

- Faiz Ahmed Faiz -

one of the greatest modern Urdu - Pakistani poets.
1911 - 1984

Sonnet XVII

I don't love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that doesn't bloom and carries
hidden within itself the light of those flowers,
and thanks to your love, darkly in my body
lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don't know any
other
way of loving

but this, in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.

- Pablo Neruda -

Valentine ;-)))))))))))



happyyyyyyyy Valentine's Day !!!!
sometimes it feels really great to be a kido like me ;-))))))))))))))))))))))
love and kissessssssssssssssss to All

got a poem

If I were a flower, I’d droop,
in need of your nourishment and care.
Though the soil may be hard dirt and stone,
with your kiss, I grow with a flair !
With joy I reach for the sun,
it’s brilliant glow, so like your own.
And if a butterfly lands on my petals,
I know it is only you, calling me home.

Tecihila, Baby !!!
Nita Wolf

looooooove you too, Babe !!!
