there is a river.
Its water whispers who you are.
Beyond the river we are flowers.
And inside, we meet our lives with a touch.
We were born.
We discovered the fire.
We were finding more and more.
Somehow we loved each other.
We spend, create and accumulate.
We heap skills and memories, things, and feelings. We have overwhelmed our power.
And we became close among the system and schemes we created ...
Then we wanted to destroy them.
Delete any straight line outlining lives.
Remove the clothes and labels. Clear the differences.
We asked and dared.
We split the Earth with both hands. With teeth we tore the trees.
We destroyed everything we touched ... Just as we asked for it.
Now we have nothing. We do not know who we are.
There was the desert wind penetrating our bodies.
there is a river.

I go on and I come back. Every time I look forward I see the past. I am going in a spiral, passing from one person to another. Looking. Finding. Connecting. Leaving. Falling down. Again and again. And it is always the same, just with different person. Do I really live by myself or all the time I need someone to support me, someone to go back to someone to stick to.
