#Poetry: ” You can’t”

Original/Italian version: https://loscittorevolante.wordpress.com/2021/02/26/poesia-non-puoi/


You can’t ask a lion,

to ba a gazzelle,

you can’t ask a wolf,

to be a sheep.

You can’t ask to somebody who cares,

to stop caring.

You can’t ask a sensitive person,

to become cynic.

She/he will never be.

One thing is to try to correct our flaws,

or even erase them…

Another is to totally change our nature.

You can’t ask me that.

I don’t want to change who I am

And I think you like me this way.

I can never be something I am not

And I don’t want to be.

You can’t ask me to stop writing,

you can’t ask a painter,

to leave empty his work.
