Joking freedom

Copyright Marie Kléber

Catching your smile
Behind the door

Happiness all around
The space
Our life together
Finding its pace

Laughing at your jokes
And eventually
Feeling free to let go

Where we belong…

Copyright Marie Kléber

There will come a time
When
Whatever the road you chose
You will know
You are
Where you ought to be

Leaves dancing in the trees
Will remind you
Of a long-time dream buried
In the shadows
Of childhood memories

The opalescent stars
Carrying the names of lost ones
Will guide your steps
From a place of fear
To a place of love

You will know
There is nothing to lose
In this life
As nothing belongs to you

You can only be
And when you are
In this state of being
You are carrying the world
In a seashell made
Of gold and grace

The Lioness bewitched

I am a warrior

Strong and fierce if needed
Weak at times
When tides are high
And my breath short
But I resist

I am a warrior

And I won’t let you
Kill my joy
Snuff out my balance
Shatter our lives

I can be your worst ennemy
The Lioness bewitched
The Goddes in armur

Whatever you chose to fight for
Be certain that I’ll never betray
The Ones I love

We were told…

Copyright Marie Kléber

We were told

Not to talk about it
Change the subject
Private matter

We were told

It is bad
We shall not enjoy it
We shall not express it
We shall not share about it
We shall not talk about it

And then we chose
To follow the rules
Or break them

We experienced guilt
We experienced loss
We experienced lack of freedom

We made sexuality a sin
When it is the core of our being
Our essence

How do you feel about sexuality?

The fear battle

Copyright Marie Kléber

Don’t engage in a battle with me
You think you know
Till you chose to let go

I see you taking out your warrior outfit
Thinking I can be defeated

But I am the winner of all time
I am the test you ought to face

Fight me and you’ll discover
That nothing can resist me

Just allow me to be
And you’ll find the key
To control me

Don’t close your eyes

Copyright Marie Kléber

It’s hard not to. Not to remember this night. Hard to see the number 13 on the screen and feel nothing. It’s hard to forget. Hard to behave like none of this happened.

We can try. Some are good at it. Some are good at closing their eyes. Some don’t want to remember. Cause it’s too tough. Cause it’s too soon maybe. Cause they don’t see why this would make a difference.

I don’t want to close my eyes. I don’t want to forget. Even if it makes me shiver. Even if it’s far from what I believe and pray for. Even if I don’t understand and if I’d rather see love than blood on the day screens.

I can say it does not matter. I was not one of them. I was out of the mess of this terrible night. I’d lie. I was there, crying, feeling the pain of those who died, of those who survived. I was there, knowing our world would never be the same again, letting go of layers of fears, trying to find solace in kid’s innocent smiles.

When darkness threatens the foundations of our lives, we can’t keep going like nothing is real. We ought to walk, confident, holding to hope like a second skin, towards the light.

Walk by the shore

Copyright Marie Kléber

Take my hand
I’ll show you the world
My world
The empty spaces in my dreams
The heavy clouds in my nights
The happy smiles in my days
The waves crashing against the rocks
You’ll see how beautiful it is
When you stand still and breathe deeply
Knowing there is no other place
You’d like to be
Just there, holding my hand
And saying out loud
To the sky and the sea
To the world and the hearts
That despite all fears
You are free!
