I look into the mirror.

I see a person.

Everybody likes this person.

Everybody except of me.

My mirror image is a stranger.

A girl with black hair.

A girl with rouged eyes.

A girl wit a painful

and longing look.


I have to be this person.

Everybody wants me to be this girl.

Everybody except of me.


I have the longing to be myself.

Be the person hiding behind the face.

Show everybody who I am

how I feel and what I feel.


You don’t understand me.

You can’t understand me.

You don’t even try.

I’m hated for being myself.

I’m not accepted for being different.


Where is your tolerance?

Your sympathy?


In our society we eat meat.

We eat animals.

Living beings.


That’s normal and normal is good.

Abuse them.

Kill them.

Eat them.


Humans destroy our environment.

The nature, our earth.

Humans hurt themselves.

They make war.


Humans behave intolerant.

Have no understanding for

different sentiments.


Why we do that?

Where is our compassion?


“I see a world, which is different.

A world giving love and not only take.

Where you can be how you are,

Without the fear to show who you are.


Understand – No you don’t have to.

And I don’t have to justify,

explain or defend myself somehow or other.


I don’t condemn you for ignorance.

So don’t condemn me, because my heart screams after a free world.”

I want Peace

Love for All.
