September 24: 39th anniversary of the murder of Comrade Pablo Neruda, Chilean communist and poet, two weeks after the U.S.-backed fascist coup against Salvador Allende’s government in 1973.
You start dying slowlyif you do not travel,if you do not read,If you do not listen to the sounds of life,If you do not appreciate yourself.You start dying slowlyWhen you kill your self-esteem;When you do not let others help you.You start dying slowlyIf 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 coloursOr you do not speak to those you don’t know.You start dying slowlyIf you avoid to feel passionAnd their turbulent emotions;Those which make your eyes glistenAnd your heart beat fast.You start dying slowlyIf 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 your lifetime,To run away from sensible advice…- Pablo Neruda

September 24: 39th anniversary of the murder of Comrade Pablo Neruda, Chilean communist and poet, two weeks after the U.S.-backed fascist coup against Salvador Allende’s government in 1973.

You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the 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 colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

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 your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice…

- Pablo Neruda
