I am
I am

One day I simply found out I was sick but the doctors didn't know what was wrong with me, and then I looked everywhere to have some comfort, to feel home, safe from te storm that was coming to my life, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't find me. And I felt lonely. So I decided to do something about it. 

I put my body to dance freely as I used to do even before learning how to walk, I let my voice sing with the strenght of my heart once again, I dropped the boring books of college to read Musashi or King Arthur, and then out a sudden I saw myself trying to write a "soul song" - a song that is the essence of who you are. It seems that my soul has more of a writer rather than a musician.. And that's how this poem came to life. My efforts to find myself somewhere lead me to experience me living in different states.. All of them are within me, including you. You are me. And I am you. 

I hope this poem may remind you that we are all connected in this never-ending story, so that you are never alone.. And maybe it will help you to find yourself as well. Enjoy the reading :) 

PS - The poem is originally written in portuguese,which is my native language, so I am not sure if the translation is accurate. Please if you have suggestions on how I can improve it, I would be very thankful.
