“Life has pounded me down

and thrashed me around,

Time and time again,

But I always get right back up,

Because I still love life -

Just as the earth still loves

The rain.”


― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem



Soundtrack :





I love my life

I love to be free

and if you can't allow that

then you are not for me

I am like the mist

that floats in with the tide

I am like the butterfly

that flutters deep inside

every time I look into your eyes

and see the clouds passing by

I know what you are telling me

yet I sense your reluctance to say goodbye

for me who only ever says au revoir

it proves a little bit hard to bear

but I see that it is true for you

so I will walk away and shelter you from my tears

because how can I be free if you don't feel it too

it's not one rule for me and a different one for you

so I will do what your eyes are asking of me

and I will fly away high to the mountains

and soar among eagles; absorb all their mysteries

and I will set us both to fly far away and free

and the angels will guide us to our true destinies

never say never because you never can know

in this strange world that we live in

how far destiny will go

our worlds may collide long after our feelings have died

and like the phoenix you know me to be

our love may resurrect; float in on the tide

deeper next time; as deep as the sea

but for now we must live as we loved and give it our all

so that if we are meant for each other

next time we'll be tall

and stand high above the mysteries of the Universe

shine brighter than all of the stars

be more meaningful than any of this verse

glow bigger and better than Venus or Mars

our love will be warmer than the heat from the Sun

the Big Bang will seem quieter

more distant than the drums

that beat rhythmically as our hearts resound

and as they pound away proclaiming our love

and the music our souls sing

will sound all the more sweeter

than all of the angels in the heavens above.
