You Start Dying Slowly

You Start Dying Slowly 

(Pablo Neruda)

You start dying slowly

if you do not travel,

if you do not read,

if you do not listen to the small sounds of life

if you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly

when you kill your self esteem

when you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly

If you become a slave of your habits,

walking everyday on the same paths…

If you do not change your routine,

if you do not wear different colors

or you do not speak to those you dont know.

You start dying slowly if you do not change your life

when you are not satisfied with your job

or with your love.

If you do not risk what is safe

for the uncertain.

If you do not go after a dream,

if you do not allow yourself

at least once in a lifetime

to run away from sensible advice.
