Because you didn´t ask
Answers are kept deep in memory
Distance eases the mind
Broken memories dwell in the body
Unasked-for experiences pile up
Develop into deep inner grief
Buried deep into the soul
Enclosed, kept and forgotten
Because you didn´t ask
Reality becomes subjective
Repeated traumas consumed vacuum-packed
Everyday pain and powerlessness
Uncertainty becomes the only certainty
All the lights have been put out
The stillness gives peace of mind
There is a light at the end of the tunnel
The journey is sometimes difficult
There is no progress without difficulties
Processing tramas is ongoing
The inner baggage allowance is overflowing
Everybody wants to travel light these days
In the old days
The dad said to his little girl
It´s gonna be okay
She believed it then
She still believes it
It´s gonna be okay
