Poema: “I woke up a hundred thousand years”

(By Kenio Barros de Avila Nascimento)

**

I woke up a hundred thousand years in the future,

When an Et snatched me to sleep

And after a glimpse I saw everything

When I wake up to tell you

**

In the future it was all so cool,

No one died and no one cried,

They were all smiles and beautiful,

But far from Earth.

**

Nothing on the planet except

Cold rocks as in comets

Humanity lived in another galaxy,

Cultivating space drugs.

**

If nobody died, I thought

Happy would they be;

Alien warned me that in them

There was no more love,

**

Terrified, I was then a poet

Without love nothing would interest me,

To which my alien spoke:

Humans lost without solution,

**

Out of fear of death, immortals would remain,

Prolonging life to infinity,

For fear of sadness, drugs would cultivate

On the planets of your possession

**

In glimpsing this horror, future,

I returned from my astral ride,

To tell mankind:

That could lose your heart

**

And again, I went back to advise:

Live as if there was no death,

After all, your soul is even immortal …

And, please, save the love, for the courage to die!
