1. To Lie Still 4/20/2013

To Lie Still

To lie still and feel life pass me by,
to awake each morning feeling that I truly am alive,
to feel empathy for the strangers with no faces that I daily meet,
tobe able to find peace in the midst of my inner turmoil,
all of this and more I need to be whole once again.

Every deception, every lost freedom,
every misunderstanding and every death
builds a burden of pain and anguish

[Hata Bildir]
