I wish I could
Leave this place
And go back
To my one true home

Too bad that’s never gonna happen
And you’ll have to swallow me
The way I’ve been swallowing you

Don’t you think I’m gonna crumble and whither
I’m going to dig deep, yes
Grow under and through
This nasty soil of yours

But I’m gonna live
Try all you might
To stifle me
I’m gonna grow

Your rocks will test
The flexibility of my roots
Your poison
Will only make my antidote stronger
Your dryness
Is gonna fill my juicyness
I’ll suck all your crap
And turn it to lovely flowers

Laugh all you want
Of a small seed like me
But I’ll laugh last
When I become the tallest tree

Never ending

Circles by Susanne Nilsson


We are all broken-hearted beings
Foolishly trying to live life
As if nothing bad had ever happened to us
Yet desperately trying to fill
That deep dark void in our souls

We wear masks and armor
We hide our true selves
At the same time
We long for connection
We dream of speaking the truth

Living these empty lives
We only further that deep dark void
Inside ourselves and our loved ones

I hurt
So I hurt others
So I hurt
So I hurt others

A never ending cycle of pain

Paradise in Gold

Paradise in Gold


Markers on paper, 2013.


This is the last drawing of my golden landscapes series.

It was inspired by this song, one of the results of the Virtual Choir 4, which had nearly 6,000 singers, including yours truly (singing soprano 2 and alto 1 parts)! =)

Look by Nick Page

Look down
See the reality
Feel the security
Learn to take flight

Look up
See the possibility
Feel the freedom
Learn to come back

Look back
See the past
Feel the sorrow
Learn to let go

Look ahead
See the future
Feel the hope
Learn to make happen
