You have been kissed by Saturn
When solitude turns to loneliness
and the memories of better days
collide with a difficult reality

Obscured by the shadows of your burdens
the rays of the Sun cannot reach your eyes
Deadened by the ghosts of sorrow
a cold shiver envelopes your heart
The hands of a crippling fear
strangle your dreams
and reduces them to what they really are:
naive fantasies

A bitter pill to swallow
but a valuable medicine
Curing the most impulsive spirits

From clouded vision
To sharp lucidity

It is with a long and arduous process
that a rock becomes a diamond
With the cultivation of patience
and the harsh polishing of time
that ignorance
becomes wisdom.
