SVEGLIARE(Italian, means to wake up)

To wake up

Is to come to a realization

That there exists

A life

Besides the former

To wake up

A double-edged sword

While it liberates the soul of one

Could capture that of another

While it unfurls gifts in one

Magnifies insufficiencies in another

Why awake the unwilling?

Do you equip him

For a new reality?

If you do

Do you not reckon

That each man sees

With a unique set of eyes?

Let the sleeping dog
