    Poem: Life in my Hand



    I can’t keep up with the world
    Since it tries to act as a double edge sword
    The more I kill the enemy
    The more it pierces through me
    In the end, I don’t have anything to defend
    In the end, should I pretend
    Not to be hurt
    And just smile
    When in fact I am about to die
    The string of faith is not so strong
    They break as you walk along
    Rip apart when you start creating art
    And when you close yourself inside
    Do you think you will die with pride?
    The sword keeps pushing inside of you no matter what you do
    No matter what you think
    No matter what you feel
    In the end, you’ll see what’s fake and what’s real
    Emotions and facts combined in life’s artifacts
    When you see one run
    Because harm will be done with one look
    That’s all that it took
    That’s all what it ever takes when you gaze
    And that’s not the end of the story
    Because you are driving a freaking lorry
    To an unknown destination
    Through the forest of procrastination
    The mountains of your desperation
    And the roads of the great depression
    Yet you are there sitting on your comfy chair
    Goin’ 80 miles per hour
    Screaming about life being sour
    The favorite thing about it is not knowing where you are going
    Because if you knew, what would you change, what would you be ever able to do?
    I don’t know me, I don’t know you
    What I really want to do is create myself
    Mold the me into whatever I want to be
    Stay true to the values I hold so dearly
    And preserver
    Life is not all about defense or attack
    Even if the double end sword will get me one day
    I will be able to say my last words
    They will echo to the chamber of life and death, in between
    Do you know what I mean?
    It will reach the end of the world, the end of the universe
    Because it will be like a fire from a verse
    It will hit deep and wake the gods up from their sleep
    Then, you ask me, what will happen?
    What will become of you?
    What will become of me?
    I don’t know a thing about you, but I will go out smiling, what will you do?

    Poem: Ode to Farewell

    Through the wind I heared a sigh

    And as snowflakes covered my fallen brother

    I said my last goodbye

    The night came

    So endeth the day

    And I was to go away

    Over the hills

    Over the sea

    To the lands that I have never seen

    The lands that connect to the sea

    Under the cloud

    Without the stars

    No snow in the winter

    No flowers in the spring

    Alone I came

    But back I will be with lots of friends

    And where the road will take me

    I won’t tell

    Because when the day comes

    To bid you farewell

    I will tell

    I will tell to everyone around me

    And if I see them again, faith will tell me

    Where the road takes me

    I came all this way

    And when the day comes to bid everyone farewell

    I will tell them

    About the places I have been

    About the sorrows I have seen

    And I won’t forget

    Nor will I regret

    The people that went on this road with me

    And with this night ending

    So ends my day

    Alongside the devil in hell

    With the angels in heaven

    Through the silver streams

    And big seas

    Over hills

    And over mountains

    Through forests

    And deserts

    I couldn’t know

    And I wouldn’t want to know

    Where the road took me

    And to whom I bid ferewell

    Poem: Quoted

    Nothing stops my head now
    Thought after thought its all rough
    Like diamonds all they need is some shaping to make them shine
    That’s where my mind comes in play
    You can stay and watch me turn my thoughts into reality
    Because that’s what I was born to do
    I always thought that my life is not worth living
    But I started going through it my way
    Sometimes I cry sometimes I laugh
    But I wont exchange it for nothing in the world
    All the mistakes I made , all the bad choices I feel crawling up to this day
    I would do them all over if it lead me again to you
    And it wasn’t so far away when my first dream came true
    And now I meet you
    So life goes on and on
    And we just try to figure life on our own
    I live my life like I always wanted to do
    And that’s by staying near you
