often night embraces me
instead of you.
you are far away, lost
with no ears to hear me.
in the midst of silence
I hear my every thought bloom
I know them all
like a gardener knows every stem in his garden.
In my child-woman soul
I grow you countless roses
wrapping me, stinging my heart
in a fierce fight for a more sunny spot under your eyes.
maybe oneday you’ll set aside all glory,
the love for yourself, the perfect dreams.
when you’ll stop your conquests and wars you’ll find me here:
the white rose quietly bleeding for you.

My thought tonight goes to all people that have in their heart the sadness of knowing that they have failed in something in this life. Whether it’s a relationship or a job, a friendship or a dream that never came true, we have all failed in life many times.
It’s a lonesome feeling, it’s a painful wound deep in our heart that has the same size like the dead dream we had.
If you happen to feel this right now stop for a moment and breathe. If you need a hand to hold your hand take mine. And know that failure is part of life just like success.
They don’t teach this in school. We are tought that we only need to win. Nobody tells us that some dreams are meant to never come true. Nobody tells us how many times we must hit the ground before making a dream come true. You will fall many times, just remember you need to stand up again and in the end all will be all right.
No matter what is in your past my friend, raise your head proud and see how fantastic and unique you are. Don’t let nobody judge you, you are amazing, nobody has the right to judge you. You have failed? Carry on!!! You have won? Carry on!!! You are beautiful, perfect and unique, no matter what anyone says.
