‘Who am I?”


Born as a butterfly

After so many things in my early life

Absorbing so many negative beliefs

Hearing all of these and believing

I realized

I was hidden

In a cocoon


Then, on a very difficult night

CoDA came into my life

Finally a relief

I was in the dark

Dying through the minutes

Through the pain

Through my mind.

Expecting too much

Living too less

Hoping nothing


One speaking voice

And I found myself petrified

Hearing my life

Through other lives

I could shout at that moment

But I didn´t

So I heard all my life

In pieces, in each voice

As a puzzle


Feeling belonging

It made me feel stronger

it made me choose the steps

I stopped running

Running my mind, my body

My soul

And start to walk

Step by Step

And here I am

A butterfly again
