Sometimes things happen in the present
making you back in the past.
The whole movie will pass you by again,
Caught by pain instead of being happy.
The scars of your soul that affect your daily life,
Afraid to trust or give your heart once again,
Every day try to start with a smile on your face,
Your attention focused on other things,
Some people want you to explain it, but they are not going to understand you,
because only you know the pain and the blows,
Once there comes another moment when you rise above yourself,
That your heart is filled with love and positivity gets more influence.
(*) This poem is written by Nathan Wiersma for his sister Hadassah. This poem wanted Hadassah read aloud during the Silent Protest on 6 October 2018. Unfortunately that did not work because of the emotions that were present at that moment.
