‘be you, inspiring us to be us’
ich kann gar nicht anders, als ich sein
herausfordern der norm. nicht mehr aus prinzip. aber irgendwie als lebensform.
eben wenn ich dem nachgehe, was ich bin
mit ganz viel ehrlichkeit
ich weiß nicht, ob es besser ist
aber für mich ist es erstens interessanter und zweitens fühlt es sich gesünder an in mir
it used to feel like i have to resist
i have to resist and live my life in my way – in defense
that i have to be different, to be sure not to be just conforming just following just being submissive
this came with effort
with fights with mistrust to all sides
both my side and others
are they trying to pull me over?
am i still following my heart?
to be able to wear an elegant dress at a fancy ass wedding, knowing that this is not my full identity but enjoying that it’s part of it
feels like freedom
being able to dance a couples dance, let myself be lead and be really soft
being able to play with and move smoothly in cultural habits and norms
being able to talk to all people
be relaxed in a place that is so different from myself and instead of having to look down on it learning and enjoying
joining with what i have to give. making it mine as well.
offering my part to those who like to receive it.
the luxury of choosing which fights to take and which to walk away from.
being able to be with discomfort or unusual.
and not having to create unusual auf teufel komm raus, aber going with what appears.
