É demais

A few days ago,  I did a post called ‘Is it too much’. With help from some high school students, who are currently participating in a programme at Unicamp called ‘Science and Arts during the vacation’, the text was translated to Portuguese.


É demais
Is it too much,
a ansiar por um lugar,
to yearn for a place,
livre do medo, ciúme e ódio.
free from fear, jealously and hatred.
Um lugar onde se
A place where one
explora a vida ao máximo,
explores life to its fullest,
livre das caricaturas da vida.
unfettered by the travesties of life.
É este lugar só é possível em utopia
Is this place only possible in utopia
como seres humanos, em geral
as humans by and large
are becoming machine-like.
estão se tornando como máquinas.
