The Time Will Come

Hi Guys! 

First of all, it's the 3rd Birthday of my Blog! Personally, I am proud of it. I like the background. The lay-out looks better than at the whole beginning. There is a quote, which I do not change often enough, but hey, the idea counts. A Spotify playlist. Some concept exists at the moment -- Books. And last but definitely not least, I allow friends to read it. I share more. Also, this was the reason why the University of Limerick chose me to be one of the International Student Ambassadors. Who would've thought! 




To start off the year well, I would like to share a poem with you, that I read quite a while ago. In September to be exact. I went to the library, found three interesting books of which I actually read only one completely. The other one I only opened and was like "Ah, another time maybe". & The third one had this beautiful poem by Derek Walcott.

The time will come 
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving 
at your own door, in your own mirror 
and each will smile at the other's welcome, 
And say, sit here. Eat. 
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart 
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you 
All your life, whom you ignored 
for another, who knows you by heart. 
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf, 
The photographs, the desperate notes, 
peel your own image from the mirror. 
Sit. Feast on your life.

Happy New Year!
