Sonja Nic Rafferty


do not build castles in the air
I always have been told
but yet I want to build castles
for everybody
for me
and anyway
I will carry on digging for my roots
to fight against cancer
I still have many targets to achieve
and hope
if you know what I mean
I do not lose easily
I always say
strong dreams will become

1991 (original German), 1998 (English & updated) ~ Sonja Nic Rafferty

Sometimes it is really too late! I wrote this poem 1991 when I still had hope to find my father. He wasnt still alive. No way! 1995 I got cancer so I updated the poem with a new hope to get over it.
* Smiles * ~ Sonja
