14,600 Days & More.

Who has many reasons
To wake up every day?

I have.

Happy or sad,
We must go on.

When days are unique,
They cannot be the same.

But who wakes up every day
With many, thousand reasons?

I am.

If things are easier,
If things are free,

We fall in love
Again and beyond.

Who is a stranger
In his every day?

I am.

When I don’t know myself,
I ask my mother.

When I don’t know you,
I stop to feel good.

I do.
