I remember my old name

And the name after that and the name after that one

It goes on and on, it doesn’t seem to stop

I am born and then I die and it repeats, like a windmill

 

I remember the grey cloudy skies and the fear that showed on their faces

My father had died of the black plague and my mother was bedridden

I was once a noble, my name was Mia

 

I remember the sun in my eyes and the breeze that hits my face

My mother was weak and ill, my father was dead

I was once a sailor, my name was Herald

 

I remember the darkness in my eyes and the dirt on my clothes

My mother was a baker, and my father too

I was once a miner, my name was Alfred

 

I remember my empty skinny stomach and the sweat on my back

My mother died in the poisonous gas, and my father was a coward

I was a prisoner of Hitler, my name was Abraham

 

I remember so much but they do not

I walk around this world with an empty mind

Like a hamster running in his or her wheel

It is a never ending cycle
