To die for freedom (To those who died trying to escape from East Germany to West Germany)

by Antonio Gil November. 08, 2012 5605 views

Thoughts are free, who can guess them,
they flee past like nightime shadows.
No one can know them, no hunter can kill it/shoot it dead
It remains: thoughts are free!

I think what I want and what makes me happy,
but always inwardly, and as it suits.
My wish, my desire no one can deny,
It remains: thoughts are free!

And if someone locks me in the dark/gloomy prison,
All that is absolutely wasted work.
Because my thoughts pull the barriers to pieces
and walls in two, thoughts are free!

I want to renounce forever the worries/sorrows
and want to never again plague myself with whims
One can in the heart always laugh and joke
and think: thoughts are free!

Thoughts are free!

Aos que tentaram fugir ou se levantaram em protesto. Olhando agora para tràs, estes mortes parecem tão sem sentido, tudo muda com o tempo, é inevitável a mudança é constante, o homen não controla nada.

Un post émouvant.
De tout temps seule la pensée, formulée (pour ceux qui avaient la chance de pouvoir le faire) ou non, est et reste libre

Very strong and good post Antonio...It makes me sad to think about how we treat each other...Just because we think and are different. I will save the first one in my favorites

Ce qui m'a dégouté a l'époque c'est qu'aprés la chute du mur des politiciens de ce régime se sont retrouvés au gouvernement de l'Ouest comme si le passé n'existait plus
