As soon as I’m Born, I’m Dying
After everything that is offered by the world
no longer can heal longs
when everything which is delivered
not interesting anymore to be heard
all I have is longing
that unanswered by the passion of romance
unstoppable by all the luxuries
not making a look over the offer of power
or flattery in the name of popularity.
After all that is offered by the world
no longer able to tame the longing
I realized that what I want to hold tightly is affection
what I miss is a flame
my own soul which is united with all light
the light that is only there at home
live of my own life
what I forgot since came out after amniotic water
That made me die, as soon as I was born.
I just want to go home
