My Soul

About the Poem

Poem originally written in English.

My soul is a drop of water
bending light into a rainbow

My soul is a flower, a closed box
waiting for someone to find its secrets

My soul is an opera
singing notes no one has ever dreamed before

My soul was pierced through the neck with an arrow
a trach tube, scarlet blood dripping down

My soul is a first-aid kit
hiding my scars—

a missing link
a treasure
