If You’re Searching For A Path…

Magda Michalska 18 October 2017 min Read

I have recently come across a tiny little poem by a Bulgarian poet, Blaga Dimitrova:

Grass

“I’m not afraid

They’ll stamp me flat

Grass stamped flat

Soon becomes a path…”

Sometimes it’s difficult to be yourself and go against the current. But it’s worth it.
This post comes a little bit late for the Coming Out Day, which was on the 11th October, but I still want to dedicate it to all those who have become paths for others…
Let’s see the best paths from art!
