Sei Morto*

Ma io sono vivo,
una barca
in un mare 
in tempesta chiamato dolore

Sei morto, sei morto
Ma io sono vivo
Sei morto, ma io sono vivo
Sono morto con lei

*Italian is obviously not my first language--nor am I fluent in it. It is, however, one of the many languages my father spoke, hence the effort. 

**I am much better at translating from Italian to English.

We must never permit the voice of humanity
within us to be silenced. It is Man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him a Man.

--Albert Schweitzer

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

--Viktor E. Frankl
