I have been enjoying the crowd on the streets today.
Excitement is a light blue stomach.
I have been enjoying my art.
Happiness is mint green teeth.
I have been enjoying sleeping throughout the night.
I remember whole mornings full of sadness,
a huge tightness in my chest.
Anxiety is a scary brain.
Sadness, a black heart,
confusion is a silver head.
Grey clouds surround me. The confused day is full.
I left my family and I always miss them every single day.
Outside my window I can see the beautiful birds,
a tree and a house and so many cars.
I see people running.
A middle-aged man walking with his hands in the pockets.
I wish my older brother was here.
I want to see my family again.
I want to see my mother again.
And of all the green flowers bringing happiness to my eyes.
I will never stop believing in freedom.
I will never stop believing my laughter.
I remember the confidence I had in my body
in that transparent sea.
Relaxation, a blue mind.
I remember the beach
laying on the soft shiny sand. The sun was kissing
my skin and sea singing its wavey melody to my ears.
My favourite place is Asmera.
The beach, the countryside.
My favourite place is Massawa.
I know how to cook Anjera.
I know how to ride a bike.
I know how to eat,
I know how to make zigni.
I will never stop believing in myself.
I will never stop believing in change.
I will never stop believing that everything will be good.
If I could change the world, there would never be hungry children.
If I could change the world, there would never be no wars.
All family would live together forever,
no war and more peace.
I am a human,
I am atoms,
I am happiness
