[Phew, I’m glad I’m sitting down. It’s busy, with the kids, a house, a job, hobbies, friends, Facebook, a husband …it is more than a day’s work. It consumes me in some way, I miss the quiet, time for myself and the feeling to be in control. So much happens, so much is asked, so much required, so much assumed. Sometimes I feel stuck, like I’m in a straitjacket. Like a pattern that never changes. I do not complain, I sometimes miss the weapons for my freedom. Don’t get me wrong, I love my children dearly and cherish my guy. In many ways this is the life I want to live. But maybe I need to break away, again, like I was 18, again. I think I need to revise my life. Because If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything. And I don’t know how my surroundings will react. There will be some resistance, that is to be expected. Every change is a new path. And new is something different. Not good, not bad, but different. But the more I think about it, the more I want it: For those who fight for it, life has a flavour the sheltered will never know. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to act. I’m suspecting it will be a big change, but it will be mine. It will be a deep sacrifice and a great victory. Eventually there will only be winners, that is the intention. If I am happier, everyone will benefit. Who honours those we love with the very lives we live? Who sends monsters to kill us and at the same time sings we will never die? Who teaches us what is real and laughs at lies? Who decides why we live and what we will die for to defend? Who chains us? And who will hold the key that will set us free? The inevitable truth? It’s me…]

There’s always a greener lawn
The sky never blue enough
Your love doesn’t show it all
The mind not rich enough

You’re not slim and you don’t smile
Quite as much as you should do
People like you but you’re not as wanted
As in your dreams (in your dreams)

Hold me like the first time, hold me in your arms
Hold me and believe me, hold me make me warm

When you cry, you’re holding back
Always afraid to show
You are scared but you act so tough
And wish nothing will change your life

Hold me like the first time, hold me in your arms
Hold me Hold me and believe me, hold me make me warm
Make me warm, make me warm
And make me whole again
