OK, no me pregunten por qué pero me salió en inglés. Espero que la disfruten:

Emotional lethargy

So, if it should come to this,
How could I possibly avoid it?
Is my will strong enough to prevent it?
Is it my fault that the world spins so quickly?
And if indeed I can refrain myself,
Wouldn´t I be falling deeper into despair?
Would this ever running villain called time
Forgive my emotional lethargy?
Or should I simply feed my ego
And bury my “I can´t go through it alone” feelings
Only to keep bleeding on the inside?
Or should I just trust you;
Making past treasons, lies and arrogant attitudes vanish
And accept a mutual commitment to happiness
Once and for all.
Life can be threatening,
Some people have chosen to act threatening themselves
As if they could become friends with life that way.
Psychologists would say “Identification with agressor”
I would say, fear, fear, fear:
Fear of dying, worse, fear of being alive.
I know, I had to take on that attitude for a time
And please believe me, it can be useful
But it certainly is futile too.
“All´s well that ends well” I recall reading once
Well, no one ever doubted Shakespeare´s words, have they?

Saludos, besos y abrazos según correspondaicon_wink.gif

Me parece que últimamente me siento demasiado cercana a este tema como para disfrutarlo, pero siempre reconforta saberse acompañada en el esfuerzo por otros seres humanos.

Un saludo afectuoso,
