All I ever wanted
I don’t remember
having been greedy;
it was only essential for myself
to escape from my mental prison
to fly next to the seagulls
without looking back.
I realized that certificates
framed in gold didn’t make me
a better person
nevertheless a wise woman;
it is not an absolute purpuse of life,
but love is.
Perhaps all what I’ve endured
such as rejection, loneliness and illnesses
are just a form to purify my soul,
it’s about to rise again in the rubble.
Who better to understand the fallen?
Who better to kiss with open arms the forgotten?
Whatever path I walk,
may love always find its way with mine…
It’s all I ever wanted.
