[I couldn't obtain permissions for all of the artworks, so I had to change some of them... (very) minor changes to text, too.] Thoughts and Feelings of a (disabled) man by Daniele Bergamini I received an heavy cross to carry on my shoulders ...but also strong shoulders to bear such a weight I received a cross heavier than that of million people ...but also a lot lighter than that of a greater amount of people. I received double of the fatigue for every single step I do ...but also a lot of chairs on the way to sit on. I got difficulties in walking for not to talk about ladders ...but also a fervid imagination to travel everywhere, despite my limits. I received days to forget about in which I would rather be anyone else ...and days to remember, in which I wouldn't want to be anyone else. I received hard battles to fight for ...and the sweetest victories a man could ever taste. I got hard times searching for a woman able to love me as I am ...and a lot of patience to wait the day she'll find me. Sometimes I got distrust on my abilities despite what I could do ...but also a strong personality for not to care too much. I got a Creator that I can't see ...but I got creatures in which He reflects Himself. I got a God I can't abreact to ...and a Good which took His cross to not let me feel alone on mine. I got mistakes for which I can't forgive myself ...and a God with an endless mercy. I got a lifetime of trouble ...but also a possible eternity of joy. Sometimes I got a sense of unjustice for what I miss ...but also a Nature teaching lessons: this lifetime winter won't win. Sometimes I got a sense of unjustice for what I miss ...but also a God promising: "who's last'll be first!" I got a bunch of questions to ask for the sky ...but I can say I dug my soul at least once in my life. I got a life which teaches me what "sorrow" means ...the same life which shows me what "joy" means. Yes. I received a life to live day after day.
