Transformations by Selmin Seren Gulunay

I closed my eyes, emptied my mind

Entered deep, deep inside

I searched for clues to what had happened

When did I let go of my trust

When did I stop being loving

When did I confine myself only to existence

To only a shadow of a real person

I felt deep sadness, emptiness, and fear

I opened my eyes quickly and promised

To let my heart be free again

Like a child, curious and trusting

Ready to experiment and to love

To be like a bird in the sky

A cloud high above

Until it meets the cold air

And becomes rain and snow

To fall on the ground
