Reclaiming Light

Reclaiming Light
by FoggyBrains (Album Foggy Brains)

Dutch: Mensen met NAH (Niet Aangeboren Hersenletsel) doorlopen een aantal stadia. Ontkenning, Rouw, Acceptatie, Frustratie, Angst, Boosheid, Depressie etc. Dit nummer gaat over deze mogelijke stadia, maar ook de hulp en steun van de omgeving. Zonder die steun is het proces van acceptatie en revalidatie zeer zwaar. Met de hulp is het terugvinden van de nieuwe ik een proces van Reclaiming Light, het omarmen van het nieuwe leven
English: People with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury) go through several stages. Denial, Grief, Acceptance, Frustration, Fear, Anger, Depression, etc. This song addresses these possible stages, as well as the help and support from the surroundings. Without that support, the process of acceptance and rehabilitation is very challenging. With the help, rediscovering the new self is a process of Reclaiming Light, embracing the new life.
Song text Reclaiming Light by FoggyBrains
In an instant, life did change,
Lost in a world that feels so strange,
A brain once clear, now in a fog,
Through the stages of grief, I slowly jog.

Brain injury took its toll,
Lost parts of me, it stole,
But with love and care, I find my way,
Acceptance dawns, a brand new day.

Denial first, couldn't believe,
The things I'd lost, hard to perceive,
Anger boiled, frustration high,
Why did this happen? I'd always ask why.

How this happend? I always ask why

Brain injury took its toll,
If only I can turn the page
Reality hits, in this new stage.

Depression's shadow, heavy and deep,
Lonely nights, where tears would seep,
Yet hands reached out, held me tight,
Family, friends, a beacon of light.

Bring the lights, A beacon of light
Brain is having me tight
Family, friends, a beacon of light.
Why this happend? I always ask
Family, friends, a beacon of light.
Brain injury can't take it all, my life's new role.
