Just a thought....
Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

Eu não sou eu

"Eu não sou eu nem sou o outro,
Sou qualquer coisa de intermédio.
Pilar da ponte de tédio
Que vai de mim para o Outro."

 ~ Mario de Sá Carneiro

I am not me, nor am I another,
I'm something in between.
Pillar on the bridge of tedium
That goes from me to Another.

This poem is on the wall at Metro Paraíso in São Paulo. It just caught my fancy as I passed. Through the gap in the wall, you can see my metro arriving... which I then had to run to catch.


  1. That reminds me of the lyrics "stuck in the middle with you".

  2. I wrote a poem some time back that had a similar sort of theme. Guess that's why this appealed. Maybe I should repost it. It's from way back in my Yahoo days.

  3. I guess I'm not me, either.. at least at times..
    Interesting pic of that wall! At first I thought it was a box, the gap being the hole to grab it.

  4. poetry on walls, love it!

  5. ohhh i love this too...and that fact that it's on the metro wall! yes, you should repost yours. :)
