La Tristesse

by maria
 Even if you cannot live your life as you wanted to,
at least try this
as much as you can; do not humiliate it

Do not humiliate it by bringing it,
by hanging around and exposing it,
to the daily stupity

til it becomes a strange and obtrusive one.

“As much as you can”, Constantine Cavafy

This music piece was composed by E.T., 16 years old
