EUPHORIA

LOREEN, THE WINNER OF EUROVISION 2012 / www.dn.se 

SD’s Björn Söder questions the Swedish character of Loreens winning grants. Loreen: ”I’m not here to preserve the culture. Take it and do WHAT THE HELL you want with it.”

She stands barefoot on the scene. She wears no makeup. She wears a simple dress. She sings alone on the scene. The dance and the colors, the darkness surrounding her but also the rays of light on her face and around her all together are sending a strong message. And of course the lyrics are trying to draw attention to important and topical issues. ”I am pleased that the message went through,” she said.

MY TRIBUTE TO YOU

 

MY MOTHER, PHOTO: 1961, LAHIJAN, IRAN

To my Mother
The great love in my life
The one who shaped my personality
The one who protected me
And who was my first compass
To the world.

To my Father
That is unable to show
His love by kissing and hugging
Or even talking
But saved my personal stuff and
All photos of my youth and even my school
Backpack and my pens in my little
Closet in his house for more than
Twenty years.

To my Sisters
My great supporters
Who call me often and
I feel that they miss me when
Their voice are shaking

To my Brother
Who is confused
Right now because of
Family problem and share
His story with me by not saying
Anything but just calling often.

To my Daughter
My beautiful daughter
Who takes me with her
To another world
A beautiful world full of
Happiness, full of fun and laugh.

To my unborn Baby
To my 100 grams of pretty human being
Who made me crying of happiness
When I watched its movement on the screen
Who reminded me of strong feeling
Of fatherhood again.

To my Wife
My biggest love
The most beautiful and caring
Woman in the world
Who loves me for who I am and
Does not try to change me
Who is my best friend.

To my Friends
Those who are around me
Even though some of them are living
A thousand miles from me
Those who are with me in my struggle
Who gave me the courage to carry on
And not give up.

The words are not enough
To describe my feelings
And my appreciation for you

Look in my eyes
And read it by yourselves
That I’m blessed and I’m
Grateful to you.
