Svetlina Trifonova




Stories You Were Told



On the Human Right to be psychologically, emotionally and all-other-kinds of “free”



Who made you into a slave?

Who made you into unworthy?

Who carried you

where no one was moving?

Was that Yourself?

Or was it people’s worries?

Who told you

what’s Heaven and Hell?


Who wrote to you

a story of sufferings?

In the center of yourself,

there is a crystal clear gate.

A gate you can only unlock,

by becoming

Your True Self.









On recognizing the feelings of others for their true nature



I see

a piece of you

is missing.

A detail

of a precious stone.

My dear,

I know a wounded

heart so clearly.

But wait,


will come home.
