“Sometimes, I would just like to find myself somewhere else.

I would leave this tiny body, this tight life, like no one had ever known me, like I was never born.

I would find myself tree among trees, swallow among swallows.

I would dissolve in a stream, thereby being spring and ocean at the same time.

I would lay my dead skin and join the wind, becoming uncatchable too.

I would be leaf and root to experience both safety and bravery.

I would surrender to the most charming sleep, to the sweetest magic spell, forever.

Instead, I am just an ordinary woman, sitting on an ordinary desk, writing a prayer nobody will ever grant.”
