In addition to my blog post from Monday I want to share a very fitting poem of my collection with you.
The following poem is part of my poem book Enjoy Life! The content is kind of my story – from darkness to light, from hiding to breaking free – from fear to conquering life! This poem also contains the basic lyrics of my song I would do it again!, which I performed at my book presentation of the German version of I’m Free.
I would do it again!
I used to look back at my life and could see
Only struggles and people who were hurting me.
I gave my very best and tried hard to succeed,
Wanted some love and understanding in need.
But what did I find? Mostly trouble and pain.
I thought what I did was completely in vain.
Disappointment and sadness made me build up a wall
To find shelter behind and no sorrow at all.
But I only found darkness, felt lonely more and more.
Wasn’t able to find and walk out of the door.
The pressure got bigger, pushed me down to my knees.
When I thought I can’t make it, I felt this light breeze.
A hole in my wall where I could look through.
Saw light and heard laughter so warm and so true.
These walls I built up where no shelter at all.
Just kept me from growing, were a lie, held me small.
This hole in the wall – I finally got aware –
Was a window to my heart, let me find myself in there.
I had to go down to the most cruel, darkest ground,
To find my true beauty, my strength and inner peace beyond.
Today I look back at my life and can see
That nothing can hurt me unless I agree.
‘Cause whatever I went through made me who I am.
Thus I honestly tell you: I would do it again!
In Love and Light!
