Lone walkers…

We walk in the dark
away from the crowds and people
We live in fear
of showing ourselves to the world
And yet…
As we linger in the shadows
As we crawl through this world
As we walk alone, unseen
We wait for the day
when someone will notice
when someone will see
the day when someone will care…

Cold autumn hearts

Click to see the artist behind this picture

A freezing autumn morning
As the leaves in my heart descend
A slight breeze picks them up
And steals them away

Forgotten feeling,
I´ve missed it for long
Lonely colorful morning
Mist surrounds my eyes

In such a beautiful place
A curled up child appears
Lonely cry, he tries to reach out
Warm hands keep us tight

But beyond his reach
A shell keeps him from his dreams
For fragile this child is
So fragile life´s heart is…

One rainy night…

As I walk the street alone
Fear not my child, for this is life
The noise, the blast, the thunder
Shall all befall upon us, eventually

And you will worship the day
As the gods bless our steps
And we pray to our hearts
May we love again someday

And as I walk this street alone
My fears become none
With the blessing of the rain
As rain drops cleanse my soul

Fear not my child, for this is death
Darkness, silence, so calm
Shall become light once more
And we will rest at last

Winter soul

Close your eyes and look inside
See ahead of thoughts as trees
A lake lies ahead, no?
the sound of streams so near will lead you to it

Close your eyes and feel
Keep moving forward
Trees keep growing taller
But the spring will remain there

Patience, my love
For you shall reach your goal
You´re thirsty, I see
You crave it, I know

What lies in that spring?
Do you not know?
I´m sure you do
Close your eyes, you will see

Fountain of love
Within you springs
Yet you cannot reach it
Thoughts and fears hide it

Don´t turn around
Do not go back
There is no meaning in all
if you can´t reach it

Now you see
It has frozen
Only ice remains
Only memories prevail

You could not help it
You could not see
Had you known…
Could you have known?

Do not despair
For your soul is in winter
Come Spring and you shall see
The lake of love shall fill again

Thy kingdom burns…

A fortress you have built
Where no one may enter
To safeguard your soul
And your people the most

A king in his castle
Beloved you are
All who enter shall be safe
None will be hurt

Behind great walls
Your flock is forever safe
And your army whole
Is always ready

“But what is this?
You want out?
I cannot allow it
I will never allow it”

“Why? Stop!
If you go out
No one knows what might happen
The world won´t like it”

“What is this?
You too?
Never
Never”

“So it has come to this
My flock has turned
Against me they march
Confinement means death”

Behind great walls
Protected you felt
But that protection cannot be
If your own people are against you

Betrayed by your own kind
To dwell in your own guilt
To suffer in your kingdom
With no one else to know

That is your sin
And this is your payment
Condemned to death
Now burn in silence

Who are we…?

We all die, eventually
Death is not the end, nor the start
It is a checkpoint
It is a toll

Throughout our lives we live differently
Some seek quietness
Others adventure
While others seek to avoid life itself

From the moment we are born we are to gather experiences, knowledge.
Should we neglect this, the afterlife might seem terrible.
To think you have done nothing for yourself in your life can be frightening.

In order to keep experiencing and living, we should remain healthy.
Respect our bodies, and also our minds. For a mind cannot be without a body, and a body is meaningless without a mind.

However, what is truly our mind?
A mount of thoughts and functions?
A conjoined mix of feelings, ideas and plans?
A network of neurons that create a world within ourselves?
Or is it the reflection of our souls and inner beings?

Moonlit sky

…So life was cold.
An eternal sweet night
With stars afar
No touch of light

Forever afraid
Of warming up to freeze again
such terrible fear
Would dawn be my downfall?

So forever running
To make it an eternal night
To flea from light
Again and again

And suddenly a flash
A sweet scent afar
Afraid yet not so
Of that shiny star

Ever so close
A star enlightened me
Even in my sweet cold night
Warmth gave me still

And step by step
It slowed me down
To never run
From that distant dawn…

Howl.
