_____________

if i’ll tell my story to myself
to entertain my state of mind
i won’t fill my space with self-pity
from feeling withdrawn and partly empty
if pretense would make me look
an upright person getting off the hook
stinking stories from the wicked backdoor
won’t break my heart when roars are washed ashore
i will trust my own values and beliefs
neglecting phony news thriving beyond limits
embracing pure thoughts without fear
they will be filled with honest hopeful cheers

Why ?

Too many stars glitter up in the sky
i don’t know which of them watch me by
too many reasons came to my surprise
which is the answer to my question why

The moon is up and tomorrow it’s gone
it’s in the horizon, next day, the twilight sun
in the night, it’s back over my head
not shining in full, only half instead

It snows in the mountains, hills, and plains
sand dunes in the desert, not visited by rain
in the tropics, the seasons are wet and dry
i’m puzzled, do they have the same sky?

I really wonder, why we have an earth

so many people die, so many giving birth
traditions, colors, and beliefs unfamiliar
please explain, my stars, why there are wars

I have to say, “Goodnight, Stars of the Night”
i need to sleep, tell the world not to fight
hoping that in my gentle and placid retire
tomorrow is a reality of a story justified…

I’m Alive…

thoughts running through my mind

hopes, wishes, reflections, speculations

opinions, beliefs, reviews, judgments

feelings, reactions, and all sorts of concerns

my mind is busy all day long,

with all that mental musings and brainwork

i realized and thankful that I’m alive

God is still very patient with me!
