padre abbraccia figli
I figli 9

Let's read together

I tuoi figli non sono figli tuoi.

Sono i figli e le figlie della vita stessa.
You bring them into the world but you don't create them.
They are close to you, but they are not your thing.

but not your ideas.
Because they have their own ideas.

You can house their body,
not to their soul.

Because their soul dwells in the house of the future,

You can try to look like them
but don't want them to look like you.

Because life doesn't come back,
and it doesn't stop at yesterday.

Tu sei l’arco che lancia i figli verso il domani.
