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
