The Power Off

I am an animal stuck in an unexplanatory system 

listening to the soft conversation between cosmos and universe


I am fluid in a thick skin

spilling my rolling emotion towards whom

I am a fish in a big ocean

simply trying to swim away from drowning 

I am a child in a grown-up body

waiting for her dream to come true

I am the Ying and the Yang

and still searching for the in-between

I am like a grenade

hoping my uncertainties won't disappear

I am an instrument in the shape of a woman

trying to translate pulsations into images (-Adrienne Rich)

I am a woman in the shape of growth.
