Carla Golian, 2017, oil on canvas, 40 x 50 cm

Passes by, passing me by,

Hoping it’s not my life,
Passing me by.

Sitting on the outside, looking in.

Spirited Away

Carla Golian, 2017, oil on canvas, 40 x 50cm
This painting is inspired by the Anime film, Spirited Away

I try to let go, to let go, to let go,
And to let go some more.

I try to hang on,
To the faith, to the hope, the beauty

I try to hang on,
To the promise that no one made,
The promise of the promised land.

The divine paradise.
To be,
Spirited Away.
