I’m standing naked

in front of my own fear.

Only him and me

in front of the mirror of

life. And I’m watching him

with wide eyes opened and

I’m asking him, is he

afraid of my ego

and my crazy desire to

win. He looks silently at

me, my fear,

indifferent, without a blink of an eye

without a heart,

and no hugs.

But now I feel like I’m prevailing,

crossing all obstacles of self-pity,

and the curses of the evil men in black.

And I feel my big fear shrinking

as I walk on my toes,

overrunning years of nonsense.

And I was born again

in the glare of the Universe,

free of burdens of the life

free to fly, somewhere where

no one can touch my wings

of dreamer.
