When you leap,
You are going on a road, which is not even paved or signed or beaten.
It is just green and new.
But you can see its way clearly. There is a path to come.
Then your best friend called fear sets in:
There are times when something holds you back. You find yourself on a path sections with thorns, which grab after you. There is something in your way. You can’t even duck yourself from deep hanging branches. You do not know how.
You do not fit into a box.
You can’t. Don’t try! You are a creative!
Even if you try, or know how to open the magic box – you would destroy it.
You see through its walls.
But you feel like this instead: stiff. Yes, of course! You are sitting in THIS box.
I have been there: You do not want to bend to a minimum.
Even if you have the key to the box.
Just be you. Expand. Than you are flexible in many ways.
You test your boundaries.
You become different, a better version of yourself.
You get hurt and you get healed at the same time.
You make new friends.
Allow yourself to bloom. Allow the new. Allow yourself to be you. Allow yourself to shine.
Feel yourself. Be truly alive.
Then it happens again:
I thought, everything is always fine and always beautiful now.
Instead: I feel surrounded by branches with thorns.
Then I am spinning in circles. I find it hard to find a way out and cannot see the surrounding clearly.
I can’t believe this! Normally I can see things easily from some distance and move out of the scene.
(This makes things much easier)
It should feel like this:
Or that moment:
This time I cannot move back, or out, because there are only thorns: Left, right, front, back and even above me. I have to go through this.
I only see the thorns, because everything else is blurred. I am focused on my pain.
Trust yourself. Be brave.
After this, you are stronger. Go through this, dive into it, just once and the next day will be fine and better. You will see more clearly. Trust me. Trust yourself. Breath.
The pictures are from the Pyrenees (first two and also the waterfall, later in the Middle: the mountains – if you never have been there, you will definitely fall in love with them once you see them), Italy (Petritoli – of course the sunny pictures, Gola di Infernaccio with its trees, Firenze – the dome, the cathedral, graffitis and the art) and Marrakech (the mural and the tiles – I do not have to mention that it is one of my favorite cities beside New York , Rome, Venice, Cologne, Mainz (Mayence), Copenhagen and Petritoli … I think I have some more … but these I like best).
All inspiring trips I did within one year with Martin or my brother and my mother (a very funny trip) or just with my mother – or just by myself 😉
My inspiration credit:
Sometimes sentences or words inspire me. Or simply make my day.
One blogger who has inspired me very much lately is Jamie Varon. You definitely have to catch her newsletter „Hump Day Hang Out“. The quote above is from her Number #8
And also thanks to Susanne, Leonie, Athina and Petra who inspired me to publish this poem. I promised it to them. Here it is! I already created some more on Insta @Miriamo77. This time it was poems week 😉
And big love to Martin who always listens to my poetry, instead of reading it. He hates to read long text. Which I again I love! My trick: I read them out to him … then it is more like an audio book, which he likes. And luckily he has a crush on my photos ;-).
But I have to be fair: Lately he wrote some rhymes and songs with me together.
You can check out this one – it is a November Poem.
Or our new Label MIRIAMAR (if you like Deep House).
Some more songs from him with vocals from me (with his Label Magmar – my favorite one!):
The night comes (Progressive House)
and Fly on the sun (Deep House)
Check it out, enjoy and have fun!
