Lord ( Johnny.)

Looking for Thee as I´ve been too bad
Surrounded by Your sons some can´t find the right Path
My Lord, won´t You get me back

Is there anything left to lose when someone is left alone
I´m afraid to ask it when I don´t feel that strong
Please, Lord, won´t You get me back

Uttering hopeless prayers I find myself on my knees
And now that I am that desperate it seems You don´t recognize me
Please, Lord, won´t You let me in

They say You know one´s true feelings
Before they come into existence
They say You will dry one´s eyes when life makes them cry
Please, Lord, will You get me by

Saints in white robes now point their fingers at me
Making this constant guilt feelings exceed my love for Thee
Please Lord, won´t You rescue me

Forgive the wrongs committed for lack of self control
Forgive this feeling of greed I feel inside so deep
Forgive all I may have done in order to harm Thy sons
Forgive me, Lord
Please, God, don´t let me go



  1. Very beautiful and sincere, Johnny!
    The image of the "saints in white robes pointing their fingers at you" can be perfectly seen by a reader. Good idea.
    The use of Thou, Thee and Thy makes me remember those poems we study at college. rs.
    Keep walking! Congrats!

Versos ou Prosa da Memória Poética?

Porque hoje é quinta,
escuto Chico para chorar e rir, e em casa sem atrapalhar o tráfego .
No Sábado, ouço e leio Vinícius para dar risadas e chorar de rir.
O primeiro foi um grande construtor poético; o segundo ainda é. Ou seria o contrário de tudo até o primeiro ponto? Ou seria o contrário até o ponto segundo?
É bem verdade, entretanto, que uma genialidade floresceu há tempos.

Quem é quem então? Eles, eu sei quem são.


Just a short tale
By John Ny

A long time ago, one of my grandmothers, tried to make sure that joining the Brazilian military service would be an unnecessary feat in my case, as she could probably use her influence over that matter. A quite clear sign of care and preoccupation over a possible and bad outcome, in my opinion. However, after a long period of reflection over what my choice would be, I really decided on enlisting against her wishes, which, unexpectedly, resulted in an unlikely outcome as she proved to be one of my greatest supporters at the time. Well, I really miss my grandmother and not for the fact that she was white in spite of the fact that I am black. Nevertheless, that is not the real point here. Because what had already been very clear to all participants in that process from the start, and including her main role in the equation, was the fact that dodging draft would never make of any citizen a useful one for society. We all shared the same opinion about the role …


-Oi, já cheguei da escola.
O que tem para almoçar?
-Oi, querida. Como foi seu dia de aula?
- Tem bife acebolado?
Eu quero bife, mãe!
- Tem sim, amada!
Tem salada de...
- E salmão?
Eu quero sobremesa também.
- Como foi seu dia de aula?
Eu preparei arroz, feijão....
- O mãe, só tem isso pra comer?

Não estou brava com minha mãe, pequeno grão de arroz!
