Pablo Neruda – Spanish poet –
Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971

His Poem : *”You start dying slowly”*

You start dying slowly ;
If you do not travel,
If you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.
You start dying slowly :

When you kill your self-esteem,
When you do not let others help you.
You start dying slowly ;

If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.
You start dying slowly :

If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.
You start dying slowly :

If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away…..
You start dying Slowly !!!
