Succumbing to Essence

What is freedom? 
Is it recklessness?
I carry both within my gypsy soul
They tear me up
Yet make me whole.
Let freedom’s arms wrapped around my waist 
Let its gentle breeze whisper in my ear
Telling me its wild secrets
Finding my weakness.
I wish to be kidnapped
To fly away to a self-made paradise
Where nothing is perfect
Yet life brighter shines.
I wish to taste a kiss from recklessness
To trust without fear
To dream without nightmares.
My gypsy soul is calling
I feel the blood of my ancients rushing through my veins
Free and wild they were
Misunderstood and condemned
Yet their strength and beauty could not be denied
The mundane laws of society they defied.
Soul of a poet
A philosopher’s mind
That is my heritage
Although at times chaotic
It's essence has always been hypnotic.
I want to dance with the shadow of life
Come to me sweet spirit of life
Infuse your breath on me
Make me fly high.

I wish to be reckless again
I wish to ran wild
To howl with the wolves
And ride with the bulls
Spirit of life I am waiting
Come and take me.
Let me submerge myself naked
In the ocean’s cold water
Let magick finally catch me
Let it hold me tight and entice me.
Let freedom and recklessness
Deceive my routine and test my sanity
Who cares if everyone else thinks I've lost myself
That I’ve succumbed to madness?
It is better than to only feel sadness.

Let me dance to life’s sensual tune
As my spirit spreads its wings
I wan to once more lose myself
To the sands of irrationality.

Yes, I am a gypsy and a misfit
I am Sofia 
And life loves kissing my lips
With fervent passion until I am in ecstasy.


I am freedom and madness
Recklessness and sadness,
I live in my own lane
You can join in 
Or just fade away.

Matter’s not what you think of me
I am here to shake your comfort zone
I am tornado 
I am volcano
I am rainbow
I am rain after a hot day 
Look into my eyes, let me take you away.

Do you dare?
For my journey is not for the faint of heart
You need to raise the warrior within
You need to come back to life
And maybe just maybe together we will ignite!
