MEN
desperate men
unhappy men
men who cling to the hope of the sea
the water drags them
accompanies them but
often betrays them and
swallows them up in its immensity
confident men
looking for a fertile land
in search of freedom
in search of the bread
desperate men
unhappy men
calling the ancient continent,
opulent, that swallows everything
wealth and poverty,
being, non-being, form, substance
men roam
from land to land
hunted, persecuted, exploited,
and only a few other men, real,
open their world
her arms, the heart
TOMORROW WILL BE THE FREEDOM
FREEDOM TO LIVE
FREEDOM TO LOVE
FREEDOM TO BE
FREEDOM TO BELIEVE
A WORLD OF MEN IN FREEDOM
A. RUGGIRELLO

every year in the Mediterranean wave of migration causes thousands of deaths.
you can not stop the wave. the front pages of gironali do not need. you need to look more to man.
