AM BLIND AND DEAF
In my beginning there was darkness and in silence,
Darkness and silence created for me by God,
They both remain with me…
My world is a train,
Travelling on it daily….
From noon till night,
From night till noon…
Blind I was from the beginning,
Without sight against the badness of the world,
Darkness I’ve seen and lived with since the beginning,
In the darkness, I shall die.
Deaf I have become since a child,
For the arguments and screaming was there,
As jealousy took over a partnership,
Disorder and antisocial behaviour caused by drunkenness,
So silence produced harmony to my ears.
Since the beginning, I was on a train,
With a muted Dum di dum, dum di dum….
Day and night,
Night and day,
Journey into the unknown,
A one-way ticket to nowhere…..
Like an astronaut,
Being isolated in darkness,
Surrounded by the silence of space,
Without sight and without hearing,
Living in a void,
Feeling heavy in my heart,
I am dying to run away,
Soaring up in the air,
In a speed of light through the universe…..
I am shutting my eyes I want to see the most treasured things,
I am closing my ears to hear the most wondrous sounds,
I am waiting in silence to speak out the most confiding words.
