Nine Months Long

Updated: Feb 9

Nine months long, I laid there

In my mother's womb

Slowly developing from embryo to fetus to human


March, 23 1979

The day I was born

The day I took my first breath on Earth

The day it all started


June, 22 1995

The day he died

The day when everything went dark

The day when all hope, love and dreams disappeared

The day my soul died


I was lost for nine months

For nine months I felt alone

For nine months, aimlessly, waiting for the end


March 16, 1996

The day he came into my life

The day he saved my life

The day I saw a future again

The day my soul was reborn


May 25, 2018

The day where everything turned gray

The day the sun stopped shining

The day that was the beginning of the end

The day my soul died again


Nine month long, fluctuating between shadow and light

Nine month long, searching for the light

Nine months of intense grief


September 9, 2018

The day of the new beginning

The day that I found my own strength again

The day I was reborn


It took me nine months

Nine months, to develop into a human being again

Nine months, to care and heal all the wounds of the soul


And I was reborn!


They say ats have nine lives... Me too ;-)


I have learned how to weather life's storm by accepting that I don't know everything, that I can't understand everything and that I don't need to.


I have learned that I can be there because I am who I am, a beautiful person, a beautiful soul.
