You let go

It comes back to you


Do you own it?

Or does it own you?


Love was never as difficult

As I tried to make it seem

I was just afraid

To let myself fall


I was afraid to let go

I did not want to see it in others hands

It took me a while to understand

That sometimes it´s better that way


Fear evolved into an interest

Which then turned into a connection

Way beyond just pure curiosity


I started to love the shadow which I threw

While I was standing in the blazing sun


Life itself opened its door for me

The second I stopped worry about the unavoidable

All I could do was cry out of happiness




It´s what I feel the most those days

And it feels like I reached my goal already

Despite I still have such a long way to go

My Body

My Life

Finally feels like home

    It just amazes me how many different ways we can express love. You did it well!

    May that home be forever filled with love and peace.
