I was blind for so long until my heart asked for help
I was lonely for many nights until I fully open my eyes and was surrounded by love.
Blindness caused by a yearning to be loved,
by a wish to feel part of something
because I didn’t want to be alone.
Loneliness because this land is too strange
because its inhabitants are distant in mind and soul from me.
Healing my blindness was initially full of sadness,
and a sense of personal failure.
But now it has strengthen me,
yes, I’m still disappointed once in a while,
but I know this is not my fault.
I wanted to be loved, and loved so much for so long until my blindness hurt my heart.
I’ve cured my loneliness over the years
I don’t need so desperately to feel that I belong, that I’m loved.
I’m loved by wonderful people who make this land a little more welcoming every day.
