„Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you“
No, actually I do not
I do not even think about you often

But the fear of disappointing your parents is hard to overcome
Even when they are dead

I must accept something about myself
I am not perfect
Sometimes I am weak
And do things I am not proud of

But I can no more
Live to not disappoint you

I must live
To make myself proud

I will give what I have to give
Not what you wanted me to give

I am not your dreams
I am just myself

And what I am
Now and always
With everything that means

Is human
