Here is the new music and film from our Roadtrip to the beautiful island of corse.
On the way we listened together as a family to the poetry from Kali Gibran and the Poem “On Children” really stuck with us, while watching the beauty of Corse unfolding in front of our eyes.
I wrote the song about a year ago and recorded it, but I needed more time to understand my inner thoughts to create the combination of reality and fantasy children have.
Maybe some childhood dreams awake from your side. It’s important to create a great life for your children, but don’t forget. Your children, are not your children.
“On Children” by Kahlil Gibran (1883 – 1931)
And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
