Way of the world

Things happen
just like that

One moment we are dead
one moment we´re alive

I´m not afraid of you
not anymore

my cloud has lifted
you can come back

I have become
much harder to destroy

bright-colored beads
pearls, glitter, diamond rings

will not impress me
none of your magic tricks

I am a woman now
not a big girl

no prey nor slave
to love or tragedy

I am just me
and it´s more than enough

(Montevideo, October 4th, 2012)
