Life in five days

by Petru Racolța

When I was born greedy for life,
I was sucking at my mother's breast
Longing for earth and stars.

YESTERDAY I was reading the alphabet
And I was widening the border in my mind,
Discovering a whole world
Through Eminescu and Ion Creangă.

That's how I gathered strength,
And TODAY, I am a living book
What is still being completed
Through the following days.

But TOMORROW is coming,
With fewer and fewer pages,
In weak trembling hands
And in thoughts that are lost in the mind.

THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, my body dries up,
And the soul is invited to leave,
And he will leave, he cannot change it,
Feeding on another shell.
