Poetry from Lidia Popa

Middle aged light skinned woman with red curly hair and reading glasses with a long shell necklace and a black top.
If I were the lady of time
If I were the lady of time 
I would bring peace to the souls of those who suffer 
due to illnesses, but first I would make her fulfill all the dreams that have been handed down 
for a better time. I would make them go and discover the many wonders 
of the world, breathe the joy of being a part of this earth. 
I would make them leave 
happy and without suffering 
atrocities that empty the heart of sensitivity every day. 
Hearing violin music while dragging the cart 
to go to the entrance of the temple. 
If I were the lady of time… 

But I'm the one who 
ostentatiously trudges through life 
through the streets of the local market and nothing happens 
without meaning in this life of dust and a continuous 
cleaning of toilets from where I take my voice to shout 
the opprobrium on the things that drain me every day like blood suckers. 

Indifference that kills unaware of malice
 in the wealthy opulence that ties and unties ties. 
If I were the lady of time 
I would make a list of priorities 
and I would invite to the dance first the one who is indifferent to the others.
