FEAR

Is it worse to live in fear of being hit by a sniper ..or by a cancer?

E’ peggio vivere nella paura di essere colpiti da un cecchino ..o da un cancro?

Eternal Homes holy Fridays

March 6 – 2012 – Edlib, Syria

The Free Syrian Army was not yet officially FSA. The regime was holding the City through a complete unconditional use of weapons. Helicopters, tanks, snipers. Against some hunting guns without ammunitions.

Void # Vuoto

When you’re afraid of the void, the body turns to look at memories, the mind runs after conflicting desires, the instinct of the soul casts a glow in to tomorrow, but it’s dark and her footsteps are far. When you’re afraid of the void, you pray. For the road not to be a return, for the fate not to be a call for help. That void it’s fear of being forgotten. Intense and ferocious as the terror on a frontline contested by snipers. Close your eyes and smile. Someone somewhere knows the hour of your death. You do not. You can just breathe, motionless. Raise the bar and jump.

Quando hai paura del vuoto, il corpo si volta a guardare i ricordi, la mente rincorre desideri contrastanti, l’istinto dell’anima proietta un bagliore nel domani, ma è buio e le sue orme lontane. Quando hai paura del vuoto, preghi. Ché la strada non sia un ritorno, la fortuna non una richiesta d’aiuto. Quel vuoto è paura di essere dimenticati. Intensa e feroce quanto il terrore su un fronte conteso dai cecchini. Chiudi gli occhi, sorridi. Qualcuno da qualche parte conosce l’ora della tua morte. Tu no. Puoi solo respirare, immobile. Alzare il tiro e saltare.
