Thank you

I thank everybody, who smiled on my dreams.HerzThey quicken my fantasy.

I thank everybody, who wanted to press me in their schema.
They taught me the value of freedom.

I thank everybody, who told me a lie.
They showed me the power of truth.

I thank everybody, who believed in me.
They expected being able to move mountains of me.

I thank everybody, who had written me up.
They fomented my defiance.

I thank everybody, who left me.
They gave me space for new things.

I thank everybody, who betrayed and abused me.
They have grown me up.

I thank everybody, who hurted me.
They taught me to grow up in pain.

I thank everybody, who disturbed my peace.
They made me strong to defend it.

I thank everybody, who confused me.
They made my position clear to me.

But most of all I thank everybody, who loves me
the way I am.

They give me the power to live!
