I am a rock….

A winter’s day
In a deep and dark December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I’ve built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It’s laughter and it’s loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don’t talk of love,
But I’ve heard the words before;
It’s sleeping in my memory.
I won’t disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    Thank you for posting the lyrics.

    This song is so much a story of my life.
    I really had to learn how to trust and love. And it didn’t come without a lot of grieve and a big struggle.

    As a result of all that was written I was thinking a bit about my childhood.
    I don’t think about it much because I do not remember much. It’s mostly hidden inside me.

    So it came a bit like a surprise when I suddenly realized how often my parents used to fight. And I felt these feelings of fear and panic I had as a child when this happened.

    How remarkable this painbody is… So many years… and still here…
